What do I use a crisp function for?

If you own a Bauknecht or Whirlpool microwave, chances are you've come across the crisp function. This function was patented by these brands. There are other brands that use this function for their microwave, but give it a different name. Curious what this microwave function does and what you can use it for? I'm happy to explain.

What is a crisp function?

Crisp plate with fries

A crisp function is a special microwave function that uses the microwave and the grill. This means you can provide your dishes with a crusty, crispy layer quickly. You can use this function for a crispy crust on your pizza, but also for a crispy layer on your lasagna, chicken, or a delicious oven dish. You can also use the crisp function to make your oven fries extra crispy.

What is a crisp plate?

In order to use the microwave function, you need a crisp plate or crisper dish. This is often included with the device. If this is not the case, make sure to buy one before you use it. The plate is made of a special material, and a normal plate or dish won't give the desired effect. Most crisper dishes are equipped with a non-stick coating and are easy to clean.

How does it work?

Place your dish on the crisp plate and turn on the crisp function. The grill function takes care of the top of your dish, while the crisp plate heats your dish from the bottom. The result is a crusty top and a crispy bottom. The crisp function speeds up the preparation process, so you can prepare crispy dishes in less time.
