Do you know the best way to warm up food in the microwave oven?
All of us more or less use Microwave Oven every day to warm up foods.
But most of us do not know few facts to warm up the food or maybe we do know but do not maintain them properly which can be bad for your health and bad for your oven as well.
You can reheat leftovers that are 1-4 days old. Leftovers that are 5 days or older should not be reheated or eaten.
Containers you should use in the oven
Always warm up food in the microwave in ceramic or glass containers. If you use plastic it can melt and contaminate your food. On the other hand, if you use metal containers, it can make spark in the microwave.
Cover the food
Whenever you are trying to warm up the food always cover it with an ovenproof glass lid or you can use food wrapper. Otherwise, your food will be all over inside your oven.
Some cooked foods do not do well in the microwave
Avoid reheating cooked meat like beef, chicken or pork in the microwave, as it will become very dry and rubbery.
