Grill and go
Think you can’t get that crisp grilled texture in the microwave? Think again. The Lékué microwave grill is a real wonder product to be found in our range of microwave accessories, adding those authentic char lines to meat, fish, vegetables and even burgers – just like you’d get from the barbie. Simply preheat the plates, pop in whatever you’re cooking and microwave in moments. Best of all, it makes unbelievable toasted sandwiches with a crisp, crunchy edge and cheesy middle.
Lékué also have another amazing microwave solution: the quick rice cooker. Simply add your grains and cold water and let the microwave do the rest. You’ll have up to four servings in 12 minutes, without any bubbling or spillages. And it’s not just a rice cooker; you can also make all sorts of different grains like quinoa, cous cous and bulgar wheat – perfect for a delicious tabbouleh or fresh summer salad. You’d never believe you could get such great results using microwave cookware.
Heat and eat
Of course, we can always rely on our microwave for heating up leftovers and helping us cut back on food waste. Whether it’s just a few bits and bobs or a big batch you’re bringing back to life from the freezer, we have a microwave bowl to suit any job. Our signature red range includes lidded mini pots, microwave dishes with lids and microwave pans, all dishwasher safe and complete with our three-year guarantee. And did you know you could get a metal microwave pot? That’s right: Masterclass microwavable food containers are made of sleek stainless steel to heat food more evenly than plastic.
As well as our dedicated range of microwave cookware, we’ve also got some multitasking food storage solutions that can be used in the microwave, giving you two uses for the price of one. LocknLock’s nesting food storage tubs are airtight and watertight, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe, and come in sets of different sizes. For a plastic-free alternative, take a look at Zip Top’s reusable silicone food containers - they’re flexible like a bag but stand on a gusseted base so they can be used to store and reheat liquids. Just one Zip Top container can replace more than 5,000 plastic bags and they’re designed to be used again and again, thousands of times.
