I know despite the fact that how convenient and easy to use microwave to cook and heat, it concerns microwave cooking significantly changes food nutrients.
Regardless, it also became one of the electrical items that we are so accustomed.
I was reading Yahoo and came across this few informative tips of uses for microwave and thought to share.
Disinfect and Deodorize Sponges
Don't throw out the kitchen sponge that smells like last night's salmon.
Soak it in water spiked with white vinegar or lemon juice, then heat it on high for 1 minute. (Use an oven mitt to remove it.)
This will also disinfect any sponges you used to wipe up the juices from a raw chicken.
Disinfect Plastic Cutting Boards
Wash the board well, rub it with the cut side of a lemon, then heat for 1 minute.
Soften Brown Sugar
Keep the sugar in its plastic packaging, add a few drops of water, and heat on medium for 10 to 20 seconds.
Honey that has solidified can be brought back to liquid life by uncovering the jar and heating on medium power for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Proof Yeast Doughs
Yeast doughs that normally take an hour or more to rise at room temperature can be proofed in the microwave in about 15 minutes.
Place the dough in a very large bowl and cover with plastic.
Place an 8-ounce cup of water in the back of the microwave with the bowl of dough in the center, and set the power as low as possible (10 percent power).
Heat for 3 minutes, then let the dough rest in the microwave for 3 minutes.
Heat for 3 minutes longer, then let rest for 6 minutes.
The dough will double in bulk.
Warm Beauty Products
Warming up a hot-oil conditioning pack for your hair takes about 10 to 20 seconds and feels marvelous, as does briefly heating up a moisturizing facial mask. (Stir the mask and test the temperature with your finger before applying to your face.) And if hot wax hardens when you're only halfway up your calf, reheat it in the microwave. It's much less messy than using a double boiler.
It takes 45 minutes to roast garlic in the oven but less than 8 in the microwave.
Slice off the top of the head to reveal all the cloves.
Place the head in a small, deep dish, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of good olive oil. Spoon 2 tablespoons of water into the bottom of the dish, cover it with plastic wrap, and cook at medium power for 7 to 7½ minutes.
Let stand for a few minutes before unwrapping.
Toast Bread Crumbs, and Coconut
The microwave toasts them in a quarter of the time it takes in a conventional oven. Spread them out on a plate and heat on high for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Keep in mind that they will continue to toast for about a minute after removal.
Get More Juice From Citrus Fruits
A lemon or lime taken straight from the refrigerator is harder to juice than one left at room temperature or warmed slightly.
To get the most juice, microwave citrus fruits for 20 seconds before squeezing.
