    Question 2 months ago on Step 3

    My microwave oven has a power setting. It has 10 settings 10 being the hottest and 1 being the coldest. So which one should i choose? Thx in advance!


    Tip 1 year ago on Introduction

    1. Crumple up a paper towel or two and lay your bread on that. Allows steam to escape, creating possibility of crunchiness without overcooking.

    2. Microwave bread on Reheat Pizza function, watching the time and turning bread over about halfway through. Then, assuming it's still soft at end, add maybe 30 seconds.

    If you overcook it, it gets REALLY hard, though is still good if you break it up with a table knife or like that. If you undercook it, it's still chewy.

    Did you know, the sugars in the surface of the bread start to caramelise when heated, that is why toast appears kinda brown...

    This is known as the Maillard Reaction.....

    I rather doubt a microwave can do this, as there isn't enough heat generated for the reaction to begin.....

    Actually caramelization is different from Maillard. Caramelization is the browning of sugars and Maillard is the browning of proteins and each reaction is chemically different.
