Collection: Microwaves

A microwave is a kitchen appliance that most people use on a daily basis. It’s fast, convenient and relatively easy to use. But even though microwaves have been around for decades, there are still some things about them that people don’t know. Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about microwaves.
1. Microwaves cook food from the inside out.
When you cook food in a microwave, the waves cause the water molecules in the food to vibrate. This generates heat, which cooks the food from the inside out.
2. Microwaves can be used to cook food evenly.
If you want to cook food evenly in a microwave, you need to use a special type of cookware. Microwave-safe cookware has a special coating that helps to distribute the microwaves evenly, so the food cooks evenly.
3. Microwaves can be used to defrost food.
If you want to defrost food in a microwave, you need to set the power level to 50%. This will prevent the food from cooking while it’s defrosting.
4. Microwaves can be used to cook food faster.
If you want to cook food faster in a microwave, you need to set the power level to 100%. This will cook the food quicker, but it can also cause it to be overcooked.
5. Microwaves can be used to reheat food.
If you want to reheat food in a microwave, you need to set the power level to 70%. This will prevent the food from overcooking while it’s reheating.
6. Microwaves can be used to sterilize food.
If you want to sterilize food in a microwave, you need to set the power level to 100% and cook the food for 3 minutes. This will kill any bacteria that may be present in the food.
7. Microwaves can be used to cook frozen food.
If you want to cook frozen food in a microwave, you need to set the power level to 50% and cook the food for twice the amount of time that you would cook it if it were fresh.
