On the days when you just don’t feel like cooking anything fancy but are dying to eat, the microwave is your saviour. Be it heating takeout food or leftovers, just put it in inside and wait for it to ding! While it is your go-to appliance on lazy days, there is much more to it.

Besides heating your meals, the microwave can bake, cook and pretty much help you in preparing a gourmet meal. So we have for you a list of surprising things that your microwave can do apart from just heating the takeouts.

Making your food crunchy

Did you just find an opened packet of chips that have become stale? Just wrap them in a kitchen towel and place them in the microwave for 30 seconds. Voila! You have perfectly crispy and crunchy chips that you can now munch away to glory.

Peeling Garlic

To save you from the painstaking task of peeling garlic, simply wrap the garlic cloves in tissue and microwave it for 10 seconds. The tissue will absorb the moisture making it easy for you to peel the garlic.

Steaming vegetables

To steam vegetables, place the vegetables on a microwave-safe plate and cover it in layers of damp paper towels. Microwave the vegetables for 4-6 minutes till they become soft and tender.

Foam milk

Who doesn’t love milk foam in a latte? Just pour the milk in a jar and cover it with the lid and shake it till it becomes foamy and microwave it for 30 seconds. 

Peel tomatoes

If you are cooking a dish that requires you to peel tomatoes, simply cut the tomato in half and microwave it for 5 minutes. Once done, you can simply remove the skin easily with a fork.
