Get more from your mi­crowave with Miriam Nice’s top tips

One of the first cook­ery books I was ever given was a kids’ mi­crowave cook­book, so for me, the mi­crowave rep­re­sents my in­de­pen­dence in the kitchen. I still re­mem­ber my sense of pure pride bring­ing out a care­fully made dish of mi­crowaved gam­mon and pineap­ple rings or a canned tuna bake topped with crisps. I was prob­a­bly about 10. Then, when our kitchen was be­ing gut­ted, the only thing we had was a mi­crowave plugged in un­der the arm­chair in the liv­ing room. I found it great fun to climb un­der­neath the chair, armed with an oven glove, to re­trieve a homemade sausage casse­role amid the chaos and tar­pau­lin. Here are my tips for get­ting the best from yours, but if you want to find out which mi­crowave is for you, head to page 111 for our re­view of the best on the mar­ket.
