Fact: Relax! Its nothing wrong with the microwaves but it’s definitely plastic containers inside microwave gives me goosebumps. 

Microwave ovens do not make foods radioactive. Microwave ovens heat food by producing radiation which is absorbed by water molecules in the food. It is very important to wisely choose the utensils for storing the food.

Plastic containers, which are not specifically labeled for Microwave use, could melt and potentially leak chemicals into your food. So avoid microwaving containers that are not labeled for the microwave. 

Beware! Most takeout containers, water bottles, plastic tubs, whipped topping bowls or jars made to hold margarine, yogurt, whipped topping, and foods such as cream cheese, mayonnaise, and mustard are not microwave-safe.

Lets learn, how you can spare the horror of toxic food intake

  • If you wish to get your food a little hotter, transfer food to glass or ceramic containers labeled for use in microwave ovens.
  • Don’t let plastic wraps get in direct contact with your food during microwaving because it may melt. Wax paper, kitchen parchment paper, white paper towels, or a domed container that fits over a plate or bowl are better alternatives.
  • Most takeout containers, water bottles, and plastic tubs or jars made to hold margarine, yogurt, whipped topping, and foods such as cream cheese, mayonnaise, and mustard are not microwave-safe.
  • Microwavable takeout dinner trays are formulated for one-time use only and not intended for reuse.
  • Old, scratched, or cracked containers, or those that have been microwaved many times, may leach out more plasticizers.
  • Don’t microwave plastic storage bags or plastic bags from the grocery store.
  • Before microwaving food, be sure to vent the container: leave the lid ajar, or lift the edge of the cover.
