12. Steam Your Veggies
You can easily steam veggies in your microwave oven. Simply place vegetables such as broccoli florets, zucchini slices, green beans, or carrot sticks in a microwave-safe casserole dish. Add about 1/8 inch of water to the bottom of your dish, cover, and place it in the microwave. Heat on high for 3 minutes, then check for doneness.
11. Sizzle Some Bacon
Keep your kitchen clean by frying up some bacon in your microwave. Place a layer of 3-4 paper towels on a microwave-safe plate. Then, top the paper towels with a layer of bacon. To prevent sticking, avoid allowing your bacon slices to touch or overlap each other. Next, top the bacon with another layer of 3-4 paper towels. Microwave on high for 4-6 minutes. Crispier bacon will require additional time.
10. Revive Crystallized Honey
If your jar of honey has crystallized into a solid block, you can use your microwave to soften it. Simply uncover the jar and heat on high in 30-second intervals. If your honey is in a plastic container that may be altered by rays of the microwave, then simply warm a dish of water in the microwave. Remove the bowl of water and use it as a warm bath to soak and warm your container of honey.Related: Is Your Honey Actually Fake?
