    Default Putting plastic plates in microwave

    Do you put plastic plates in the microwave? Do you get scared they will melt?

    Why or why not do you do it(not tupperwear plates either but ones from like crazy clarks,not the crappo plastic but the sort of good ones)

    Um, no?

    I don't think I have ever done it because I recon they would melt.

    And I LOVE putting things in the microwave! If I think there is a chance it can go in there, I'll give it a go!

    I do except with the melamine but I distort them in the dishwasher instead lol , you are supposed to use a lower heat setting the same as you do with Tupperware microwave plastic.

    Whatever type we have at work are not meant to go in the microwave. I tried. It is now a different shape.

    I would be reluctant as I wouldn't want the plastic to leach into my food. Definitely check that the plate is BPA free.

    I used to, and my microwave stuff didn't melt. I try to avoid it now if possible because I don't like the idea of heating food in plastic. I would rather heat in glass or ceramic cookware.

    Melamine should NEVER be microwaved.. It releases chemicals onto the food.. Hence why melamine items will NEVER say microwave safe on the bottom. I only use microwave safe items and even then I prefer to use china plates:-)
