Use a ceramic plate instead of plastic wrap to cover a bowl when reheating foods in a microwave. This works fine and you avoid the potential health risks of using plastics in microwave ovens.

Microwave Oven Safety Tips:

• Read package directions carefully. Different brands have different cooking specifications.

• Read recipes ahead of time. If you plan to use frozen food as an ingredient, the recipe may call for a thawed product.

• Be aware of whether your microwave oven has a longer or shorter cooking time than the average.

• Keep your microwave oven clean, since any drippings affect the efficient operation of microwave energy. A messy microwave oven will cook more slowly and unevenly.

• Don't add an extension cord to the microwave oven's own cord. Microwave ovens should use a separate 110 grounded circuit.

• Don't connect other appliances to the same circuit. Reduced electrical energy affects cooking and may harm the microwave.

• Don't deep fat fry foods or cook foods from home preserving since the microwave's temperature cannot be controlled properly.

• Don't use plastic wrappings from purchased refrigerated foods in a microwave oven since they may melt.

• Don't use unsafe/non-microwaveable containers. Either the containers or the microwave itself may be damaged.
