Get more juice from citrus fruitsMost of us juice our citrus fruits like lemons straight out of the refrigerator. A better way to get more juice out of them is by microwaving them to a slightly warm level before squeezing. This thaws the frozen membranes and makes the juice expand inside the fruit, making it easier to extract.
Peel veggies easilyNobody enjoys peeling onions and garlic cloves. Microwaves can make it easier to do that by drying up the outer layer in just 10-15 seconds. After that, the peel should come off with minimal effort.
Ripen bananas fasterIf waiting for raw bananas to ripen is not an option, a microwave can be helpful. Just 30 seconds to 2 minutes in a microwave after the skin has been thoroughly poked through can bring a banana to ripeness.
