If you have a microwave at home, but use it only when you need to heat something, then this article is definitely for you. SSPDaily has prepared 5 life hacks that will help make cooking and working in the kitchen easier.

Quick defrosting

If you need to defrost food quickly, put it in a microwave-safe container and turn on the defrost mode. Remember to check and turn the food periodically to ensure even defrosting.

Cleaning with steam

Cleaning a microwave oven can be a time-consuming task, but with this life hack, it's a breeze. Fill a bowl with a mixture of water and a few slices of lemon. Put it in the microwave and heat it for a few minutes until it becomes steamy. It will dissolve splashes and food stains, so they'll be easier to wipe off with a cloth.

Restore freshness to stale bread

Don't let a loaf of bread just go bad. Wrap the bread in a damp paper towel and microwave it for 10-20 seconds. The moisture will refresh the bread, making it soft and fresh, as if it had just come out of the oven.

Cooking potatoes without any hassle

Baking potatoes in the oven can be time-consuming, but now you can enjoy baked potatoes in minutes. Pierce the potatoes with a fork, brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Put them in the microwave for 5-7 minutes, turning them over halfway through cooking.

Microwave popcorn

Forget about store-bought popcorn with artificial flavors and make your own. Place a quarter cup of kernels of corn in a bowl, cover it with a plate, and microwave it until it pops to about 2 seconds between pops. Season your homemade popcorn with your favorite spices or a drizzle of butter for a delicious and healthy snack.
