Ever wonder why things say “microwavable safe” and some don”t? It”s not totally clear because that machine is a tote of scientific puzzles. Have no anxiety, cursory reader, here”s a microwave cheat sheet that”ll make you look like the electronic Iron Chef…
1. Chinese Take Out Containers: Many folks forget that even though the carton is created of cardboard, the strange metal handle is an enormous fire hazard.
2. Eggs: I”m not certain where folks got the brilliant thought to make hard boiled eggs in the microwave, but it”s a rookie error. The fast heat from the microwaves creates lots of steam in the egg. The steam has nowhere to go… so it bursts.
3. Lunch Totes: Paper and plastic bags should not ever be placed in the microwave. They are able to emit poisonous fumes and light on fire.
4. Styrofoam Containers: Everyone should understand this by now, when microwaved, but styrofoam is plastic and will leek in your food.
5. Red Sauce With No Lid: See image. Ugh.
6. Yogurt Containers: Designed for one time use only. They aren”t equipped to be microwaved because it’s going to warp the container and even melt down a number of the poisonous plastic in your food.
7. FruitThe Majority Of fruit burn or will burst in the microwave. Don”t believe me? Throw a grape in and see what the results are.
8. Hot peppers: They may combust they pop in your face and while in the microwave, but the actual risk is when you open it up. No one needs pepper juice in the eyes!
9. Travel Mugs: Is it stainless steel? Subsequently don”t set it in.
10. Plates With Metallic Trim: The name says it all: metal is a no no.
11. Plastic Storage Containers: Bottom line, if it doesn”t say microwaveable safe, don”t use it.
12. Aluminum Foil: It”s alloy and it”ll begin a fire.
13. Nothing: Without anything to focus on the microwaves, you may actually cause the microwave to cook itself and self destruct. Don”t say we didn”t warn you.
