Part 1 of 3: How to Use Your Microwave More Efficiently | Cooking Techniques

Microwaves have become an essential kitchen gadget in many households. They are quick, easy to use, and convenient. However, not many people use their microwave to its full potential. In this article, we will share some tips on how to use your microwave more efficiently with the help of Two Pillars products.

First up, let's talk about the Duo Cover®. This next-generation microwave gadget increases moisture in your food through its MoistureLock™ technology. It delivers leftovers that taste better than the first time and a sparkling clean microwave. Plus, it saves your fingers from those 'ouchie' moments when plates get hot! The Duo Cover® is also easy to stow away with microwave-safe magnets.

When reheating food in the microwave, always use a microwave-safe dish or container. The Duo Cover® is perfect for reheating food as it acts as a splatter guard and spill shield, protecting your microwave from messes. It also allows for steam to escape through its magnetic vent, preventing food from getting soggy.

To ensure even cooking, always stir or rotate your food halfway through the cooking time. This helps to distribute the heat evenly throughout the dish, preventing overcooking or undercooking in some areas.

Another tip for using your microwave more efficiently is to cover your food with a lid or plate. The UniLid® is a great eco-friendly replacement for plastic wrap. It's a universal lid that fits all shapes and sizes with food tracking, perfect for covering your food in the microwave or storing it in the fridge.

If you're short on time and want to cook a meal quickly, the ZipBag® is perfect for cooking sous vide in the microwave. It's a reusable silicone storage bag that's perfect for keeping your favorite snacks crisp, storing fresh produce or leftovers, bringing food on the go, or cooking sous vide! Simply fill the ZipBag® with your ingredients, seal it, and cook it in the microwave.

Lastly, when it comes to reheating food, less is more. It's better to reheat your food in short intervals, checking it in between to avoid overcooking. You can also use the Duo Cover® to warm up your food as it's heat resistant and has handles, making it easy to remove from the microwave.
