Microwaves vary in power, so you may need to adjust the cooking time based on
your appliance.
Always handle the DoubleWave Fry Pan with care when removing it from the
microwave, as it can get very hot.
Caramelized onions are a delicious addition to sandwiches, salads, pizzas, omelets, and more!
Remember, microwave cooking can sometimes produce uneven results, so it's
essential to keep an eye on your onions and stir them periodically to prevent
burning and to ensure even caramelization.



  1. Preparation: Peel and thinly slice the
    onions. If you want a sweeter caramelized onion, you can optionally add a
    little sugar.
  2. Preheat the Pan: Place the DoubleWave Fry Pan into the microwave and heat
    for 2 minutes on high without anything in it. This will get the pan hot and
    ready for the onions.
  3. Add Butter/Olive Oil: After preheating, carefully remove the pan from the
    microwave using oven mitts or a thick cloth to avoid burns. Add the butter or
    olive oil to the pan and swirl it around to ensure the base is fully coated.
  4. Add the Onions: Spread the thinly sliced onions evenly in the pan. Sprinkle
    with a pinch of salt (and sugar if using).
  5. Microwave: Put the pan back into the microwave. Cook on high for 4-6
  6. Stir and Check: After 4-6 minutes, remove the pan and give the onions a good
    stir. At this point, they should start turning translucent and slightly golden.
  7. Continue Microwaving: Return the pan to the microwave and continue cooking
    in 2-3 minute intervals, stirring after each interval, until the onions are
    caramelized to your desired level. Depending on your microwave and the amount
    of onions, this can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes total.
  8. Serve and Enjoy: Once caramelized to your liking, remove the onions from the
    pan and use them in your desired dish or store them in an airtight container in
    the fridge.
