The microwave has saved a lot of people time and, sometimes, from starvation. When you can make rice, noodles and reheat your quick lunch boxes within 5 minutes, who can part from a microwave ever again? It is one of the greatest appliances to have ever been invented.
However, it’s also dangerous when you don’t learn the basics of what NOT to put in a microwave… and how long to heat them up for.
While these fails didn’t end up with any severe injuries (except for a few melted plastic containers, dirty microwaves, and broken mugs), make sure to always stay safe. Be especially wise and smart about letting your kids near the microwave.
