We might forget occasionally how powerful microwaves are. Not only can they heat food quickly, but they're useful for a variety of other tasks. This graphic shows you several examples of both.

This graphic, courtesy of appliance site Part Select, starts off as a handy cheat sheet for food-related tasks you can do in a microwave like cooking scrambled eggs, or making onions, garlic and peaches easier to peel. It also includes tips for non-food-related tricks such as removing the stamp from an envelope.
