Viral TikTok Shows How You Should Be Microwaving Your Food From Now On

Microwaveable meals can be great on those days where you just don't have time to prepare something from scratch. However, there has been one TikToker going viral of late for showing people how they should be microwaving their food to get the best results.

Some have been blown away by the revelation, with other smartypants claiming that they have known about this trick for years.

The viral video was uploaded by TikToker "Tanya Home Inspo."

Tany started her video by asking her 187, 000 followers, "You know when you reheat food in the microwave and some parts of it are hot enough to burn your mouth and the other parts are frozen?"

Tanya claims that it is actually the position of the food in the microwave that causes this occurrence.

"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 that it can actually rotate around and cook evenly," Tanya went on to explain.

A lot of people were blown away by Tanya's hack.

"Am I the only [person whose] mind is blown," asked one individual. With another person writing, "Known this for years."

Although there were also those who disputed the legitimacy of Tanya's claims:

"The whole plate is rotating so it doesn't matter if it's in the middle. What works is making a hole in the middle of your food."

Were you aware of this phenomenon before now?

I cannot say that I have ever tried putting food in different places around the microwave to see how effectively they heat up before, and I've had some long nights. However, some people did posit their own solutions to the heating problem, suggesting the likes of: "Just put a cup of water in and it heats evenly!"

Let us know what you make of this hack in the comments!
