Sometimes using a commercial microwave is very similar to using the microwave at home – just on a bigger scale. What are some of the things that you can do to get a better meal out of a commercial microwave?
- Let your food sit on the counter for a bit. Most of the time, if you’ve tossed your food into the refrigerator or freezer, it’s rock solid. Let it warm up a bit before you put it into the microwave to heat it up.
- Cook the food in intervals. Cooking food for too long is a common thing with commercial microwaves.
- Put a little extra water in when reheating rice and pasta. Take a few moments to add a little moisture to it, else you’ll end up with something that’s dried out and rather yucky. We’ve gotten some great results from our pasta.
- Leave fries out of the microwave. Honestly, leaving fries out of the microwave will make them a much better pick. If you’re wanting to reheat those, the best thing is to put them in the oven for a time.
