We, at Tapp Me, have got for you 8 simple things your microwave can help you do in minutes:
Peeling skin off garlic gives you not only unpleasant smelling hands, but also consumes a lot of time. How about peeling off the skin in 15 seconds without any pain?
Put the garlic in a microwave-safe dish and place it in the microwave oven for 15 seconds. The skin will come off effortlessly.

Roasting & toasting nuts on a gas stove is a painful and time-consuming job. One needs to keep stirring it until the color gets golden.
