Microwave Safety Tips

Injuries caused by microwave ovens involve more emergency room visits than any other cooking device. Be safe by following these safety tips:

  • Heat food in containers only intended for microwave use
  • Open food slowly. Hot steam escaping from the container can cause painful burns
  • Never use aluminum foil or metal objects in a microwave oven
  • If a fire should start inside the oven, leave the door closed, disconnect the power cord, if safe to do so
