Microwave Oven- Save Valuable Time In Preparing Food

Monday, March 14, 2011

There are many people out there now, which include my husband, who do not recall life before the microwave oven. Oh how things have changed since then. Imagine using your stove or oven to reheat food. It is the perfect method to save time. Leftovers have always been nice, but they have certainly got their appeal after microwave ovens have become widespread in homes.

Lunches in the office have also changed owing to the appearance of the microwave oven. You no more need to rely on cafeteria food or going out in order to have a warm lunch. This is useful for people like me who do not prefer the brown bag sandwich lunch. Then there are the people who have become culinary experts on using the microwave oven and never use their stoves or regular ovens for preparing meals anymore.

When my mother-in-law was given the built in microwave, she never turned back. Eggs, bacon, vegetables, pizza and many more all gets cooked in the microwave. It is really too easy and quick to try to do it any way. It is preferred to sacrifice the taste for the handiness. It still surprises me to find what things might go in there and what you could do.

As much as the microwave is convenient, though, you must be careful. The microwave oven is very temperamental and quite unforgiving. Occasionally keeping your food for 20 seconds longer and you could be left with something resembling a wooden piece. I recall the very first time I reheated shrimp in there. Little did I know how little time the shrimp required to heat up.

Then there are the splotchy messes. If you ever fail to remember to cover up your food, you know what I am talking about. So, even with all the benefits of using the microwave oven, there are lots of negatives as well. You simply need to weigh out what issues take priorities: save your time and enjoy a mushy pizza or enjoy that great crispy crust.
