Well, microwaving Kraft Mac and Cheese is a quick and easy solution for satisfying your cravings. But the question is, how long do you microwave Kraft Mac and Cheese?

The Basic Process
Before we dive into the details of microwaving Kraft Mac and Cheese, let’s first review the basic process. To make Kraft Mac and Cheese in the microwave, you need to:

  • Fill a microwave-safe bowl with water.
  • Add the macaroni noodles from the Kraft Mac and Cheese box.
  • Microwave on high for a few minutes until the noodles are cooked.
  • Drain the water from the bowl.
  • Add butter, milk, and cheese powder from the Kraft Mac and Cheese packet.
  • Mix everything together until you get a creamy consistency.

How Long to Microwave?
Now that we know the basic process of making Kraft Mac and Cheese in the microwave let’s talk about how long to microwave it. The cooking time may vary depending on your microwave’s wattage and how much macaroni noodles you’re using.

Kraft’s Recommended Microwaving Instructions

Kraft recommends microwaving their macaroni and cheese for approximately 6 minutes. However, they also suggest stirring halfway through cooking, so that all of the pasta cooks evenly.

Adjusting Cooking Time According to Microwave Wattage

If your microwave wattage is less than 1,000 watts (most microwaves are around this wattage), then increase your cooking time by around one minute. If your wattage is higher than 1,000 watts, decrease your cooking time by around one minute.

How to Test for Doneness

The best way to test if the noodles are done is by tasting them. Take a noodle out of the bowl and let it cool down for a few seconds.

Then, taste it to see if it’s cooked through. If the noodle is still hard or crunchy in the middle, then it needs to cook for a bit longer.

Final Thoughts

Microwaving Kraft Mac and Cheese is a quick and easy solution for satisfying your cravings. Remember to test for doneness before serving, and enjoy your delicious homemade Kraft Mac and Cheese!
