Microwaves are wonderful tools to have in your household, as they are versatile. To show you their multifaceted talents, here are 15 ways you can use your microwave:

Avoid microwave splatter: Food items such as tomatoes, squash, and potatoes won’t splatter when you pierce their skin before microwaving them.

Cutting board disinfectant: Rub both sides of the cutting board with lemon and microwave it for one minute under medium heat.

Lemon/lime super extractor: Get all the juice out of lemons and lime by microwaving it for 10 – 20 seconds.

Potato chips crisper: If your potato chips have lost their crunchiness, you can restore it by microwaving them on a paper towel.
