“Can I put this in the microwave?” Everyone has asked the question, but our safety relies on the answer. Our trusted, reliable microwaves cannot handle everything. While safety is the first priority, there are some materials can destroy your microwave and cause the need for Wolf microwave repair in Florida. Print our list of items that should never be placed in a microwave as a helpful reminder:
- Paper – This includes paper bags, wraps, and newspaper, as they are extremely flammable. Paper products are not sanitary and can emit toxic fumes. Recyclable paper products also fall under this category because they can contain metal shards that spark and ignite.
- Plastic – Including some plastic Tupperware containers, many take-out containers, foam cups, and styrofoam. Always check to make sure that the plastic storage container is microwave safe before putting it in the microwave. You can typically find this on the bottom of the container.
- Metal – Never use metal when heating up food products. Many people forget about the metal handle on Chinese take-out containers. Some fine china sets have a metal trimming around the border of plates or cups that can also be a fire hazard.
- Nothing – When there is nothing to absorb the microwave’s heat, the microwave will absorb itself and self-destruct.
