It peels vegetables: Rich winter stews call for peeled tomatoes but meticulous peeling is a drag. After washing and cutting tomatoes in half, place them cut-side down in the microwave and heat for five minutes until the skin has shriveled around the edges. Then, gently slide them off with a fork or even your fingernails.

It warms bath towels: Baby, it's cold outside! Post-shower, warm up quicker by placing slightly damp towels in a large ziplock bag, then pop them in the microwave for a couple of minutes. "Not all plastic bags are microwave-safe so check the box first," says Snyder.

It gets gum off your clothes: Parents will love this

Getting gum off your clothes is faster and easier with a tin of deodorant, spray the gum until it freezes, then pick it off / break it off

Along the lines of the marshmallow trick, you can also have Peep jousting duals:

Pit a tooth pick into the side of a Peep, place two of them a few inches apart in the microwave, start the microwave and watch the battle! :rofl:

I remember reading instructions for my grandmas microwave that said, to test if it is working... duh.... place a lightbulb into the top of a glass of milk with the metal in the milk and turn on the microwave, if the bulb lights up, the microwave is working...

It also stated that this will kill the bulb!
