Microwave cookware and grills It’s great to get the BBQ out, but there’s one essential appliance that’s there all year round: the microwave. This kitchen hero really comes into its own in the summer. When the sun is shining, no-one wants to waste time at the hob – so your microwave is there to create dinner in minutes and get you right back outside. Or if you’re barbecuing for a crowd, one quick ding and you’ll make sure everyone has a piping hot burger. Our range of microwave cookware will help you make the most of your small-and-mighty oven this summer – giving you fantastic flavours you might not expect. 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, adding those authentic char lines to meat, fish and vegetables – 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. This microwave grill is available in standard and extra-large sizes to handle everyone’s perfect portion. Or if you want a crisp rasher of bacon without the fuss of a pan, Lekue have also created a brilliant bacon crisper that fits up to six slices at once. You’d never believe you could get such great results using microwave cookware. Summer flavours in seconds As well as toasties, the Lekue Microwave Grill is great for making burgers without firing up the BBQ. Before you pop it on the plates, use our burger press or meat press to get the perfect personal size patty. It’s a great way to use up any leftover mince. Lekue 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. Why not give this Warm Quinoa, Couscous and Feta salad a try? It’s all the best flavours of Morocco and makes the perfect side to a marinated kebab skewer.
