On the other hand, still, you shouldn’t over- or under-heat your food. In addition, avoid standing too close to the microwave, or heating anything in a plastic container unless it’s labeled safe for use. Hopefully, after you’ve read through this post, you’ll consider getting rid of your microwave. I think you’ll find it surprisingly easy to get on without it once you’ve eliminated it.

But if you want to maintain the convenience of using it, at least consider a few of the following tips.

What you need to consider;
  • Overcooking your food is off-limits. Once all the water in the food evaporates due to the heat, the food will cook extremely rapidly and will severely damage the molecular structure of the food.
  • Staring through the window of the microwave must be avoided. And trying to keep at least 5-10 feet between you while it’s running.
  • Do your best to plan ahead, don’t use your microwave to defrost things, just set them out in the morning either on the counter or in a bowl of room temperature water, depending on how much time you have.
  • Use a toaster oven, or steam convection oven instead of a microwave when possible.
  • Try to eat fewer foods that require microwaving, to begin with.
  • Be sure to not use plastics when heating food in the microwave. Instead, use microwave-safe glassware like this set on Amazon.


Microwave ovens are a common kitchen appliance and are popular for reheating previously cooked foods and cooking a variety of foods. They are also useful for rapid heating of otherwise slowly prepared foodstuffs. And, which can easily burn or turn lumpy when cooked in conventional pans.

Such as hot butter, fats, chocolate, or porridge. Unlike conventional ovens, microwave ovens usually do not directly brown or caramelize food, since they rarely attain the necessary temperatures to produce Maillard reactions.
