    It is always good to learn new things and I have just done that by reading this. I knew about plastic and it heating up (water bottles in a hot car) but never put it together with heating in a microwave....Thank you and will get some eco plastics for my kitchen and my family, thank you.

    I got rid of my microwave as they are bad for you. over a year ago we switched to a more "natural, chemical free life" and in all the books and research I have done, microwaves were one of the things to go on the list. In some countries they are actually banned. Instead we use a toaster oven. I have not missed the microwave ONCE and we save energy as the clock that was on all the time, now is no more!

    Just got a new microwave. (Almost two week without it.) A lot of cheap ones had horrible doors. The sale people looked at me like I was a loon to open and close all the door several times. The one we purchased light only comes on when you hit start. It turns off when you open the door or hit cancel. I'm still getting use to it. But now I will never feel guilt to leave the door open after I take something out. The old glass turn table tray works in the new one. It was a keeper to have a spare tray. I so much wanted one that had a broiler like our first microwave. Looked at the convection microwaves too. But it was not worth the cost for the poorly designed models they are producing now. One had a metal ring with three legs to balance the glass tray just to broil. Try balancing your food on that! Our first microwave had a removable rack just for this. Who is designing microwaves now? Childern? Hopefully they will grow up and design better ones in ten years.

    I use only glass containers. They are safer for the food.
