For most of us, the microwave is the only cooking implement we have access to in the office.

And while the machines get a bad rep – mainly due to shitty ready meals that would insult anyone with taste buds – there are lots of ways to use these things for good rather than evil.

Here's our pick of the best four lunches you can cook in the microwave in work this week. 

1. Risotto

Super simple, super quick, and way less hassle than doing it over a stove. Basically the life hack you never knew you needed, until now.
