A limited space in the microwave always makes us wait longer if you have more food to heat. If you’re heating up your food for two, one person is always going to be left with food that is cooled down during the time the other’s food is in the microwave.

If you still doing above, you’ve been doing that wrong! You can actually heat two dishes in the same time with the help of a mug.


First, place an upside down mug besides a dish and put the second dish on top of the mug. This will allow you to put two dishes and heat it at the same time. Make sure nobody is stuck with lukewarm leftovers!
