I'm turning to the BuzzFeed Community to ask: what are some useful household appliance hacks that more people should know about?

Perhaps you were late to realize that some stove tops lift up completely for cleaning — which makes your life so much easier.

Or maybe — with multiple young kids in your house — you're quick to tell fellow parents about the fact that many microwaves have a specific lock button for safety.

Whatever appliance hack you have — I want to know about it in this anonymous form or in the comments below.
