THE TRUTH ABOUT MICROWAVE OVENS: 5 FACTS THAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU
5. Make Sure to Heat Your Food Properly to Eliminate Bacteria
One safety issue with microwaves, is that they may not be as effective as other cooking methods at killing bacteria and other pathogens.
The heat tends to be lower and the cooking time much shorter, and sometimes the food heats unevenly.
Using a microwave with a rotating turntable can spread the heat more evenly, and making sure that your food is heated sufficiently can help ensure that you kill all the harmful microorganisms.
It’s also important to be careful when heating liquids. There are some reports of “exploding” cups when you heat them above boiling temperature, then as soon as you stir the liquid, the energy is released in a violent manner.
Take Home Message
At the end of the day, microwaves are a safe, effective and highly convenient way of cooking your food.
There is zero evidence that they cause harm, and some evidence that they are even better at preserving nutrients and preventing formation of harmful compounds, compared to other cooking methods.
I personally have a microwave in my kitchen and use it a few times per week, usually to re-heat leftovers.
As long as you take the necessary precautions and are using it to cook real food, then you have nothing to worry about.
End of Part 5
My thoughts are microwave ovens have come a long way, from the days of old. I personally use them to cook in and it saves me lots of time. It keeps the stove oven from heating up the kitchen in the summertime. I cook healthier meals for my family. I always use Tupperware products in the microwave as they are BPA Free. I totally LOVE it. ~Debra
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.
