SU­PER SOAKER

Dried beans and lentils need to be soaked overnight. Got time for that? Us nei­ther. In­stead, put them in a bowl of wa­ter, blast for ten min­utes on high

then leave for 30 min­utes.

JUICE LOOSENER

Get more juice from lemons and limes

by mi­crowav­ing them for ten to 20 sec­onds on medium. The heat makes the flesh softer so they’re eas­ier to

squeeze, while the mem­branes hold­ing the juice in burst more eas­ily.

EASY PEEL

Gar­lic skins can be fid­dly to get off.

Place one head of gar­lic in the mi­crowave for 20 sec­onds on medium and each clove will slide out of its skin with the gen­tlest of en­cour­age­ment.
