25 items you shouldn’t put in the microwave

Microwaves are known for their convenience, particularly when you just can’t be bothered to whip something up from scratch. Picture the following scenario: you come home after a long day’s work, you plop yourself down on your couch, and get ready to watch your favorite television program – but wait! There’s something that is glaringly missing from this equation. And that, of course, is a nice snack. So you make an effort to get yourself up from your comfy sitting position, and make your way over to the kitchen. You’re certainly hungry, but you’ve already gotten excited about watching television, and you don’t feel like hanging in the kitchen for too long. That’s where the convenience of the microwave comes into play. It expedites the cooking process for almost any food you can think of, and it makes the adventure a lot easier as well. But even the simplest things in life can get complicated sometimes, and take it from us – you’d better be cautious.

If you thought you could just stick anything into a microwave and get excellent results, you are sorely mistaken.

You may have heard your grandmother say that you should never stand too close to the microwave while it’s cooking, and there’s a reason they say that. It’s because of the electromagnetic radiation that emits from the device while it cooks food. But while your grandmother may be speaking words of wisdom, we think it’s just as important to be extra cautious with what exactly you’re putting into your microwave.
