Microwave utensils guide

1. The ideal material for a microwave utensil is transparent to microwave, it allows energy to pass through the containers and heat the food.

2. Microwave cannot penetrate metal, so metal utensils or dishes with metallic trim should not be used.
3. Do not use recycled paper products when microwave cooking, as they may contain small metal fragments which may cause sparks and/or fires.

4. Round/oval dishes rather than square/oblong ones are recommended, as food in corners tends to overcook.

5. Narrow strips of aluminum foil may be used to prevent overcooking of exposed areas. But be careful don't use too much and keep a distance of 1 inch between foil and cavity.
