Answer #6

Hey sad…

What’s with the name? Just curious…

Anyway the ones that are NOT safe are those where water can get trapped…

So one with a crack going from the edge towards the middle may have moisture (from washing) trapped there which in the microwave will turn to steam (expanding) and ruining your chicken pot pie (or whatever) when it explodes…

BTW I forgot to mention that articles with metallic paint are also not safe.

Glass containers are often marked microwave safe. These containers can be heated in a microwave without a problem. The issue with glass that is not microwave safe is that micro-air bubbles may be present in the glass and as the glass heats in the microwave oven, the bubbles may expand to the point where the glass breaks or shatters. (Obviously, you shouldn’t eat food where it’s glass container has broken.) One popular method of testing if a particular glass is microwave safe is to microwave the container while it is empty for one minute. If the container is hot, then it is not microwave safe. If the container is warm, it should be fine for heating food. If the container remains cool, you can cook in the microwave with that container. check to see if it’s marked as microwave safe or ask the manufacturer before using in a microwave. Any glass container with a metallic trim should never be microwaved. http://funadvice.com/r/bg1nfres0k4
