THE TRUTH ABOUT MICROWAVE OVENS: 5 FACTS THAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU

 

4. Consider Avoiding Plastic Containers that are NOT BPA FREE

Many plastics contain hormone-disrupting compounds that can cause harm.

A notable example is Bisphenol-A (BPA), which has been linked to diseases like cancer, thyroid disorders and obesity, to name a few (8910).

For this reason, do not microwave your food in a plastic container unless it is labelled with “microwave safe.”

Keep in mind that this is not specific to microwaves. Heating your food inside a plastic container is a bad idea, no matter which heating method you use.

Bottom Line: Many plastics contain hormone-disrupting compounds like BPA, which can leak out when heated. Never heat your food in a plastic container.

End of Part 4

All microwaveable containers are BPA FREE, since 2010 in the the USA and Canada. Tupperware has several product lines that are used in the microwave ovens and they are all BPA Free. I sell the CrystalWave line for storing and reheating your left overs, the Vent N Serve I take a step further and use them to cook in at my Tupperware Demo Parties. The Microwave Rice Cooker, Pasta Maker and the Breakfast Maker are all super helpful items. My personal favorites are the Stack Cooker and the SmartSteamer. Our newest product is the Microwave Pressure Cooker fast becoming a big favorite with everyone.
