Question: Which kind of container could be used during cooking in microwave oven?


in order to be used in a microwave oven, the containers must be of a material, which allows microwave to pass through it to the food. The materials fit for are as follows:

  • China and pottery, ovenproof glass and glass ceramic dishes are perfectly suitable for microwave cooking.
  • However, fine bone china and ordinary glass should be used for short periods only, as they would crack with excessive heat.
  • Paper cups, cartons, cling films and thermo plastics are suitable for microwave cooking.
  • Metal or foil containers should never be used as these reflect the microwaves.
  • Melamine ware also tends to crack when heated.
