MICROWAVES have been around for a really long time, and it turns out absolutely none of us have been using them correctly.
TikTok user Isabella Avila has revealed how to properly use one in a video she uploaded to the site and people are shocked they didn’t know her tricks sooner.
In the video Isabella says; “You know when you reheat food in the microwave and some parts of it are hot enough to burn your mouth and the other part of it is frozen?”
Well apparently, that’s because you shouldn’t put your bowl or plate directly in the middle of the microwave.
Isabella, 22, believed to be from the US, shares surprising hacks and facts on her TikTok page.
Isabella said: “It should be on the edge so it can actually rotate round and cook evenly.”
She also adds some other game-changing microwave hacks that will save you even more time when reheating food in the microwave.
Isabella said: “If you want to cook more than one thing at once just put a mug in here (the microwave) for some height distribution.”
Which works perfectly for reheating meal-prep for family dinners without someone’s meal going cold.
She also suggests that if you are cooking pizza or pasta or other things that can dry out too much in the microwave, to simply add a small cup of water in the microwave.
Using a cup of water prevents your food from drying out and stops it from getting too chewy.
Users honestly could not believe they had not thought of these hacks sooner and were devastated at the fact they had been using the simple technology wrong their entire lives.
One user commented: “I’ve literally used a microwave wrong my whole life. Thanks for letting me know.”
Another person responded: “I learnt more in this single video than of my entire university education.”
Another comment received over 3,000 likes said: “So basically I’ve been using my microwave incorrectly… “
