And now you know the way to spot the microwave safe plastic symbol on other materials and containers, here’s our list of five things you should not put into the microwave.

 

Paper bags: not only are these a potential fire hazard, but placing them in the microwave may also release harmful toxins.

Yoghurt, butter or perhaps spread containers: while washing out and reusing these for storage is actually eco friendly, they’re not designed to withstand temperatures that are high and could melt or perhaps release chemicals into the food of yours.

Styrofoam: do not be tempted to microwave your midnight kebab shop takeaway in its Styrofoam container. This’s one type of plastic which is not microwave safe.

Anything metal: from cutlery and metal travel mugs to bowls or perhaps other cookware with a metal trim, never put metal in the microwave. The sparks caused could result in an explosion.
