MicroSizzle is a plastic tray that's been created with the aim of allowing microwave users to cook four round burgers in four minutes. The tray contains four individual round spaces for four burgers and is meant to serve as an alternative to cooking burgers on the grill or in a pan on the stove. Each of these trays is dishwasher safe and is also accompanied by supplies that you can use to make bacon swizzles in your microwave.
The cost of MicroSizzle is $19.99 plus $9.99 shipping, for a total price of $29.98.
First, place the bottom of your tray on a flat surface, such as your kitchen counter, so the valleys that will hold burgers are facing upward. Plop a frozen burger into each valley, in much the same way as you'd put muffin batter into a muffin tray.
Next, add your tray's lid, once again making sure the valleys on the lid are facing upward so that they'll rest against the burgers in the bottom part of your tray. If you were to put the lid on upside-down, the cooking process might end up not being as efficient.
Once your tray's lid is on, put the entire thing in your microwave and set the timer for four minutes. As your burgers cook quickly and evenly, excess grease will drain off of them and into the compartment in the bottom of the tray that's been included for that purpose.
When your microwave beeps, pull out your tray and make sure your burgers are done. In most cases, they should be, but if not, you can put them back in the microwave for one or two more minutes. After that, use a fork or another utensil to lift them out of the tray and get them ready for eating.
Each of these trays has a perforated design, which means that it's filled with tiny holes. As your microwave runs, steam will pass through these holes and circulate evenly around all four burgers in the tray, thereby cooking and browning them. Due to this efficient steam circulation process, the burgers will be well-done (without being burnt or mushy) in as little as four minutes' time.
Although each MicroSizzle is compact enough to fit into the vast majority of microwaves, each compartment that's meant to hold a burger is generously sized. Therefore, you won't have to make or buy extremely small patties to cook inside them.
The compartments in your tray will also accommodate burger toppings such as cheese or vegetables. To add toppings, just place them on top of each burger after you've added your patties to your tray to be cooked. Place the tray's lid on top of your patties as usual, and the toppings will cook along with the burgers.
Since these microwave-safe trays are all made of plastic, not glass or some other delicate material, it'll be almost impossible for anyone to break one of them. As a result, one of these trays may last you for years without needing to be replaced.
After you've used your MicroSizzle tray, you likely won't have to spend time scrubbing meat juice or any other residue off of it by hand. Instead, you'll be able to wash it in your dishwasher, if you have one. You should wash the tray after every single use so no one ends up getting food poisoning from traces of old meat juice that's left behind on the plastic.
The MicroSizzle tray isn't just for traditional hamburgers that are made out of beef. You'll also be able to use it to cook chicken burgers, turkey burgers, sausage meat and more. Keep in mind that if you use it to cook any sort of vegetarian-style burger, it's a good idea to try reducing the usual cooking time by a minute or two. You can always extend it afterward, if necessary.
Cooking burgers in a frying pan on a stovetop literally makes the burgers fry in their own fat and grease, and some of that will end up being transferred to your plate. It logically follows that it'll then end up being transferred to your body. Fortunately, your MicroSizzle tray will catch excess fat and grease from your burgers as they cook, so no one who eats burgers from this type of tray will end up consuming that high-calorie, unhealthy stuff.
Every one of these trays will come with a set of swizzle sticks that you can use to make swizzles with any type of bacon. To do so, you'll need to wrap the bacon around the sticks and then place them on the additional microwave-safe pan that's been included with them. After your swizzles have cooked for a few minutes (try four to start), you'll be able to eat them on their own or use them as toppings for your burgers.
A child who isn't old enough or coordinated enough to deal with a barbecue grill or the stove yet may be able to use one of these trays with success. With the digital display that each of these appliances has, microwaves aren't as complicated to use, and your child won't burn themselves by touching this microwaveable tray, even without an oven mitt.
These trays will only cook food items that are round, so if you want to use yours to cook something of a different shape, such as four hot dogs, this might not be possible. You could attempt to convert a food item that isn't round into a round shape in order to cook it within this tray, but that may be very time-consuming.
If you were to use a barbecue grill or your stove to cook four burgers, this might take a half hour or longer, and your family or friends might become impatient. However, if you use a MicroSizzle tray to steam burgers in your microwave instead, you can have four burgers done in four minutes or eight burgers done in just eight minutes. Plus, you won't have to spend lots of time cleaning your grill or scrubbing grease off your stovetop after it cools, because this tray will have collected up any grease your burgers produced for you.
You might often be tempted to stop at a fast-food place for a burger on the way home, just because those burgers can be prepared and handed off to you so quickly. This may become a thing of the past once you've got a MicroSizzle, though, since you'll be able to make burgers at home in four minutes, and they'll likely taste better than the fast-food alternative.
