Microwave Cooking: Magical Plate 魔法のお皿 Gyoza

Magic plate microwave cooking isnt a new thing. According to many, its been around a long time during the microwave cooking boom.
Its made a comeback in Japan in the last year or so and the prices have dropped greatly this year [it used to be around 4500yen for a plate but now generic brands make it for 1980yen or so]
Here is the one i bought
plate-1
The wooden plate is not included in the box but sold separately.

Contents
plate-2
They sell plates without the glass lid too [makes it cheaper] but i was afraid of a mess in my microwave so i opted to get one with it.

To test it out, i purchased some store made gyoza [i wasnt going to make it from scratch and have the plate ruin it XD]
plate-3

Arrange it as best as you can on the plate
plate-4

After 6 minutes [500W]
plate-5

Perfectly crispy and the cleanup was a breeze [did not stick]
plate-6
I expect myself using this plate a lot more soon!

I’m sorry i have neglected this cooking blog!
Do you guys think i should just be posting it in my normal blog and maybe cross post it here for archival purposes?
Regardless! I’m going to get back on track in December so expect more cooking posts then :D

Happy Feasting!
XOXO Yumeko

  3. What a great plate! It sure made cooking the gyoza easy and it does look like it came out perfectly. Love it! Wonder if I can find one here.

    As far as how you post, either way is fine with me since I get your tweets about your new post and it’s also on my Blogger Dashboard.

    Thanks for sharing.
