Things You Didn’t Know Your Microwave Could Do

A microwave can be a lifesaver when you come home from work with just enough energy to reheat the leftovers from yesterday’s dinner. But did you know that your microwave can do many more things?


Microwaves aren’t only good for reheating food; you can use yours to actually make dinner from scratch. All you need is a right recipe and you can cook risotto, dumplings, or even chicken in no time.

Make Cake

Have you ever tried making cake-in-a-mug in under 2 minutes in your microwave? Once you do, you’ll never need another recipe for a quick dessert.

Dry Herbs

If you’ve stumbled upon some fresh herbs on the market and you want to keep them to use later, dry them in your microwave.

Foam Milk

Pour your latte milk in a jar, close the lid and shake for around a minute. After it became foamy, stick it in the microwave for 30 seconds so it doesn’t dissolve.
