WATCH: This Microwave Hack Shows How We’ve Been Heating Up Our Food Wrong

It’s late, you’re hungry and want to nuke something real fast so you throw your food in the middle of the microwave plate and zap it, right?


According to TikTok creator and STEM graduate Isabella Avila, we’ve all been doing it wrong.

“You know when you reheat food in the microwave and some parts of it are hot enough to burn your mouth and other the part of it is frozen,” Avila says. “Well that happens because you shouldn’t actually have your food in the middle of the plate here. It should be on the edge so it can actually rotate and cook evenly.”

The TikTok video, has over 906,100 likes and 4,450 comments and has been shared 21,100 times.

But is it right?  Try it out and let us know!
