Tips for Taking Care of Your Microwave Oven

13th October 2020
"With few simple steps and precautions, you can make your microwave oven last a little longer with a little more efficiency."

From reheating cooked food to actually cooking food, microwave ovens make chores a little easier in the kitchen. Many people use it almost every day without much caring about the maintenance which is a key factor in the effectiveness and life span of the product. With the greater awareness of the efficiency and usefulness of microwave ovens, the usage of this product has widely increased. So, here are some smart tips for taking care of your microwave oven.

Placement of the microwave

Do not keep your microwave near any water sources like the sink as the water splashes on the oven can cause electric shocks. Be aware not to keep it near the gas oven as it can interfere with the heat dissipation or can heat the sides of the microwave causing risks.

Also, make sure that the electrical socket is in easy reach of the wire. The wire should not be loosely dangling or even be stretched to reach the socket; and when not in use, do not coil the wire on top of the microwave. 

Keeping the microwave clean

The cleanliness of the oven is one of the basics. Make sure to wipe the inside of the microwave regularly to keep away the food and liquid spills and splatters. These might cause stains, corrosion, or any unwanted bad odors. The leftover food inside also takes up the energy to heat food next time cutting off the efficiency of the machine. 
Depending on the usage, do a full wipe down of your oven once a week or once a month. Some ways to clean can be using a mild detergent or a natural way can be to use vinegar and baking soda. You can also heat a cup of water for 60 – 90 seconds for any stubborn spots.

Not to forget the exterior of the oven, make sure to not let dust and greases pile up on the outside of your microwave. The areas around the microwave like the countertop or cabinet also count here. Do not let the liquid get between the touchpad and the machine while cleaning and make sure to check underneath for any fallen food particles.

Using correct dishware

Be careful not to put non-microwaveable containers inside as they can cause leave toxic particles in your food or may even cause fire or explosion. Avoid putting metals, aluminum foils, containers with silver or gold accents inside. Use only dishes specifically labeled as microwave-safe which are usually ceramic, glass, or hard plastic. 

Prevent door damage

Make sure that you show utmost care while using the microwave doors as they are the frequently used part of the product. People frequently tend to slam the doors in hurry or open it without turning the oven off. These actions may cause gradual damage to the doors or crack the seals or break any latches. These damages cause food to cook unevenly and the radiations to escape.

Avoid running empty microwave

Serious damages can be caused when there is no food or liquid to absorb microwaves. In such cases, the radiations are absorbed by its own components like the glass or the magnetron that produces the energy. As these components are not designed for the exposure, it is likely to get damaged; and the repair and replacement may not be so cheap. 

Do not use for non-food items

It might be tempting to try to use the microwave for drying small clothes or heating other stuff but it should be strictly avoided as the item may cause fire and eventually cause the machine to damage.

Know when to call for help

Microwave ovens are complex appliances and you may not be able to fix any sort of inconvenience. Trying to do so may cause more problems resulting in an expensive repairing charge.

In case of any mechanical or electrical failures, the best way to deal is to call the authorized services for the repair. 

Taking good care of your kitchen appliance can increase its lifespan significantly. Now, that you know some tips for taking care of your microwave oven, apply these simple tips and habits to maintain the efficiency of the product and use it for years.

Happy microwaving!!

Electric kitchen appliances in Nepal

17th September 2020
"Let's talk about trending electric kitchen appliances in Nepal."

The history of kitchen appliances in Nepal goes back to use of 'agena' or 'chulo' which is now replaced by gas or electric stoves; and 'silauto' which is replaced by mixer grinder in several Nepalese homes. Likewise, several other methods are replaced by modern methods and appliances. While talking about the modern kitchen equipment in Nepal, the following are the trending electric kitchen appliances in Nepal.

Electric kettles

Electric-Kettle

Electric kettles are with almost 70% of the families in Nepal. Especially, for the students who live by themselves in the city areas. An electric kettle, simply, is a kettle with a wire that boils water with the help of electricity. They can also be used for making tea, boiling milk, and warming up other liquid foods.

Rice cooker

Rice, without which, the Nepalese feel a part of their stomach always vacant, can be cooked easily using a rice cooker. The pressure cookers are not much difficult to handle; but, it won’t harm to save the gas and stay away by the whistles. Rice cookers are not just modern, but eco-friendly as well. Nowadays, the different advanced rice cooker is also developing with advanced features.

Roti maker

Roti-Maker

After rice, roti is another favorite meal of Nepalese. But, dividing the dough, making chapatis with belna, and cooking it in a pan can be quite hard work and might take some time. But, the introduction of Roti Maker has reduced the problem, as one can instantly prepare the roti a few seconds after pressing the divided dough in the roti maker.

Mixers & Blender

Mixers and Blender have made the process of grinding and smashing foods easier. The mortar and pestle are now resting in the corner of several households. Also, with a blender, one can extract juices and make smoothies within few seconds.

Things to consider while buying a washing machine | Reviews Nepal

24th September 2020
"Washing machines come in two different types- semi-automatic and fully-automatic."

Washing machines, the hassle-free equipment to wash your clothes conveniently, has been quite a trend even in Nepal for quite a time now. With busy schedules and people's tendency to seek convenience, the preference for washing machines is growing. However, not everyone can afford it as good washing machines are quite pricy and the ones that are cheaper might not do the work. Well, with depth research, you can surely find the washing machine that will be suitable for you. Here we provide you some ideas on things that should be considered while buying a washing machine.

Washing Machine Capacity

The capacity of the washing machine is measured in kilograms that are directly linked with the weight of clothes you plan to wash. If you have a larger family and wash the clothes once or twice a week then go after a large capacity washing machine. But if you plan on washing the clothes in a portion in a few days interval then you can also go after a medium or even small-capacity washing machine. The only problem will be that it will take more time to do all the laundry.

Type

Washing machines mainly are of two types semi-automatic washing machines which require a lot of human intervention and fully-automatic washing machines which is totally automated and you just have to put clothes for wash and take them out once they are done. Moreover, there are top-loading and front-loading automatic washing machines which differ from each other due to the positioning of the tubes for washing and drying. If you are tight on budget then go after semi-automatic washing machines where you will have to manually take the clothes out from the washing tube and put them into the dryer tube. And, in the case of automatic washing machines, front-loading washing machines are the most expensive that comes with a number of washing programs. Nonetheless, top-loading washing machines are also quite good as they offer decent wash programs at a smaller budget.

The material of Drum/Tub

The drum or Tub of a washing machine is simply the drum where you wash all the clothes and dry them. Being a major part of the washing machine, the buyer must not forget to examine its material. The drum, generally, is made up of stainless steel, plastic, or porcelain-enamel. Plastic tubs last longer than the enamel tubs as they rust pretty fast. Nonetheless, the tubs made up of stainless steel are the best.

Wash Settings

Wash settings are the wash programs that are available in the washing machines. Generally, the top-loading washing machines come with varieties of wash programs. From gentle wash for frail clothes to synthetic wash for cotton clothes, there are a variety of programs that vary in the amount of drum rotation and temperature. If you have such wash program alternatives, you can set the program as per the clothes you wash and can also save your favorite settings.

Spin Cycle

The spin cycle is determined by the revolution per minute that is used for drying your clothes. The higher the spin cycle or revolution per minute, the better the cloth dries. The spin cycle, however, differs among the clothes. For frail clothes, the spin cycle can be 300-500 rpm whereas for thicker clothes like jeans 1000 rpm will be the best.

Temperature control

It's difficult to wash the clothes at the same temperature throughout the year, especially during the winter. With a temperature control feature on your washing machine, you can control the temperature of the water in your washing machine. Besides, we all know that clothes are easier to clean with hot water rather than cold water.
