Tips To Heat Up Food

Microwave comes in very handy in heating up cooked food or leftovers, because it is fast, clean and the food won't stick to the food container (saves you a lot of time in cleaning and washing).

I would like to share with you the amount of time that we need to heat up different types of food. It is faster and time saving if you put the food in a container and cover it (not air tight container, it might explode in the microwave oven as the steam build up from within!)

1. 30 seconds: bread, cakes
2. 1 minute: cooked rice, porridge, noodles, soup, coffee, tea
3. 2 minutes: canned food, meat, poultry, seafood
4. 2-4 minutes: frozen cakes / pizza (depends on your preferences)

I hope this serves you as a guideline in heating up food, especially if you are a new microwave oven user. It took me a while to figure out how much time for different types of food.
