Though Mrs. Hinch has tried her best, we can’t say that we find cleaning the kitchen any more enjoyable.

That being said, we don’t mind washing up the odd pan or two and wiping down surfaces can feel oddly satisfying, but there is one job in particular that always feels like a chore: cleaning the microwave.

It’s tricky, it’s fiddly and it always leaves you trying to contort yourself into odd positions and angles to get into the hard-to-reach corners.

Plus, after all your hard work, another household member reheats last night’s dinner and suddenly (and often inexplicably) you’ve got bolognese everywhere and your cleaning efforts seemed pointless.

It’s infuriating, which is likely to be the reason why this microwave cleaning tool - shaped to look like a woman (or Mama as she’s affectionately referred to) - seems to be so angry.

The good news is though, this top-rated product can clean your microwave for you in just seven minutes flat.

Why we rate it:

Not only does ‘Mama’ help lift grime and food remnants so that we have less elbow work to do, she doesn’t use chemicals in order to do it.

Plus, the Lego-like lady has an unamused look on her face, which is fair given she's doing the dirty work for you, and we’ll never not find that amazing.

How it works:

Remove the top of Mama's hair by twisting counter-clockwise and pour vinegar and water up to each of the respective markings. Replace the top and then microwave for 5 - 8 minutes on a high setting.

Once the time has elapsed, simply remove the gadget and just wipe down the microwave with a sponge, napkin or rag, and - voila - a spotless clean microwave

What the reviews say:

With over 1,200 reviews, it’s clear that fellow microwave-cleaning-loathers are pretty pleased with the product.

  • “I just love this product. Angry Mama did exactly what she was meant to & I’ve never found cleaning my microwave so easy. I would highly recommend this product to everyone.”

  • “I immediately used it as soon as it arrived and O M G, it made the cleaning ultra-easy. No elbow grease, just one smooth wipe and boom! all the gunk and grease came off instantly. Highly recommended.”

  • “My little angry lady made me smile because she looks like me when I am cleaning the kitchen and worked like a dream, much better than my efforts. She is well worth the money. One less job in the kitchen to keep putting off.”

  • “Not only is this product brilliant, it also reminds me to clean the microwave more often. I don’t like the smell of vinegar so I use lemon juice instead and it does the same job.”
