Don’t Put this in the Microwave!


When it comes to appliances, there are always things to do and not to do to keep the longevity of the appliance in tact. It’s the same thing for microwaves. There are certain items that cannot go into the microwave to help keep the appliances lifespan for as long as you can.

  1. Paper bags – these bags can release a type of toxin that can catch fire.
  2. Eggs – some people like to try and make hard boiled eggs in the microwave. This will leave anything but a hard boiled egg. Take a pot and boil some water on the stove to create a hard boil egg.
  3. Styrofoam – Don’t even try to put this in the microwave, not even for five or ten seconds. Since this is a type of plastic, the product will not mix well the high temperatures of the microwave.
  4. Plastic Storage Containers – Certain containers are okay to put in the microwave. This will be apparent by the “Microwave Safe” label some place on the container. If you don’t see one, then check the manufacturers website, or to be safe, don’t put it in the microwave.  
  5. Stainless Steel Mugs – Check to see if there is a label that says it’s okay to be in the microwave. Sometimes, since it’s part metal, it can catch fire or block the substance in the container from being warm. Nuking stainless steel can also damage the appliance which I don’t think was going to be replaced for a long time.
  6. Aluminum Foil – This is part metal, which means it can catch fire too. Don’t do it.

If you are ensure about other products, check to see if it has a label. If it doesn’t, be safe and don’t put it in the microwave.
