Yes, you really can make gourmet desserts in only 90 seconds Rumble screenshot

Your microwave can do so much more than just nuke your leftovers.

For example, you can use this handy appliance to whip up single servings of gourmet desserts in a matter of seconds.

(That’s a good thing. Think about it — if you’re craving banana bread, you may not want to make an entire loaf. If you do, you might feel obligated to eat the whole thing! A single serving will satisfy you and remove the temptation to overeat. Brilliant.)
