Not only metal bowls should not be used for cooking food in the microwave

Probably the only inconvenience in using a microwave oven is that you need to choose special dishes for it. Everyone knows that it cannot be made of metal. But the limitations do not end there.

OBOZREVATEL has collected tips on this subject. Find out more about what dishes should not be used in the microwave.

Glass

Ordinary glass is not suitable for use in the microwave because it is too thin and cracks when exposed to high temperatures. Only specially tempered glass is suitable for use in the oven - it must be specially labeled. The main thing is to make sure that it does not have metalized decor or openwork patterns. It's also important to make sure that the bowl is glass and not made of heavy, microwave-safe plastic. Such a bowl will melt inside the chamber and ruin both the food and the appliance.

Ceramic

Ceramic products do not tolerate high heat and can crack when used in the microwave. Even if such a bowl can withstand a minute in the chamber, it will get very hot, and it will be extremely difficult to remove it. In addition, ceramic cookware is often decorated with metal decor that will spark inside the oven.

Wood

Well-dried wood can withstand a microwave once or twice without consequences. But regular use of wooden utensils in this way is contraindicated. The plate or bowl will begin to lose its structure and density, crack, and fall apart. In addition, at high power, the stove can char the wood.
