The microwave often gets a raw deal, the most misunderstood of all the kitchen appliances, it’s given negative press all the time. We’ve done some of our own microwave myth busting on FDL and now our friends at ChefSteps are here with one of their top comprehensive guides.
They start by explaining exactly how the microwave works and why it’s a really useful appliance for certain jobs in the kitchen. Then it’s all systems go with a whole mix of videos, guides and microwave recipes that will have you cooking things in the microwave you’d never imagined.
Like the video below for how to cook vegetables in the microwave and get great results every time.
This is a really useful guide to using your microwave to actually cook with an entire section on soups, a warm microwave salad recipe and a top guide for cooking super crispy prosciutto - a technique that can also be applied to bacon, though it’s not as tasty.
If you’re one of those people who leaves their microwave in the corner destined to bing only when your coffee needs reheating, you need to read this guide.
