Things You Must Not Cook in a Microwave Oven

Microwave Oven
A microwave oven is a very useful device in your kitchen, as it cooks food faster and makes the entire process more convenient. But not all food items can be put in it.

Paper bags

It’s a no-no to put them in your microwave. No matter how thick the paper bag is, it can still release toxins. Plus, it may cause an eruption that will lead to flames. You don’t want to burn your house just because you microwave a paper bag filled with your favorite food, do you?

Plastic bags

They’re made of plastic so the microwave will just burn them. Instead of using plastic bags, buy microwaveable plastic wrap. Or you may choose a microwave-safe container. This will work with this oven without fear of explosion.

Metal travel mugs

Although there are mugs that you can heat using this oven, most travel mugs aren’t microwave oven-safe. This is especially true if they’re made of metals, they’ll just end in disaster causing your microwave to explode. Don't believe me? Just read these microwave comparison reviews and you'll be convinced.

Red sauce

If you need to heat red sauce, you’ll have to place it in a microwaveable container. Don’t forget to cover it up. Else, it’ll end up in a mess. However, you must not cover it tightly. Just put the cover on top of the container but don’t seal it.

Styrofoam containers

Placing these containers in a microwave will only cause a fire. As they’re made of plastic, they’ll likely melt and their components will go into the food that can be poisonous. Plus, these containers will burn easily.

There are other things you must never put and heat using a microwave oven. Make sure that you’ve read your owner’s manual to know them all. Under any circumstances, don’t try to heat them up in this oven.
