How To Melt Cheese In Microwave: Step-By-Step Instructions

Many people are scared of microwaves and will shy away from cooking anything in them. But you can use a microwave for cooking many things!

One of those things is cheese! The fact remains that most people don’t know how to melt cheese in microwave, but that’s about to change.

Here is an article on how to melt cheese in the microwave, with step-by-step instructions and everything you need for it.

Choosing The Right Cheese

Not all cheeses will do well when microwaved, so it’s important to pick the right cheese for this recipe. Feta cheese, the kind with a white rind, Philadelphia-like cheeses, and the like. These cheeses have a relatively high melting point, allowing them to melt in the microwave.

Most other types of cheese won’t work well in this recipe because they have a lower melting point. If you are uncertain about what type of cheese to use, don’t be afraid to ask someone else, as there’s bound to be someone who knows what they’re talking about!

Preparing The Cheese

A good rule of thumb is to take it out of its packaging and set it on a plate if you’ve never microwaved anything before. Doing so will help ensure that your cheeses don’t explode when placed in the microwave.

  1. Place the plate in the microwave and set the time to about 10 seconds. If you think that’s long enough, you can leave it in for a few more seconds.
  2. Remove it from the microwave and stir it around with a spoon.
  3. Place it back into the microwave for about 5-10 seconds, depending on how hot you like your cheese, then remove and stir again. Keep doing this until your cheese is nice and melted to your liking.
