Microwaves are found everywhere; at your office, at school, or at home. It is for a good reason. They are a marvel of convenience and essential for food preparation. The microwave oven is a staple in almost every household. Still, mystery prevails around the best microwave usage. So, can you use porcelain in the microwave?
Here, we will discuss the best practices for using porcelain in the microwave. Furthermore, we will present the superior dish to use for cooking and reheating; our Belle Cuisine Rectangular Roasting Dish. Made in France, this dish will help simplify your everyday kitchen use.
What does microwave safe mean?
Microwave-safe products mean that the material of the container will not break, deform, release dangerous chemicals, or cause damage to the microwave. Above all, only use cookware specifically labeled as safe for microwave oven cooking. Using the right container is essential to prevent serious damage to your microwave. It will also help prevent foodborne illness. All Revol dishes are microwave compatible.
Belle Cuisine dishes are made of white porcelain. They are a classic essential piece of French cuisine, with an elegant shape and finish. It is perfect for everyday use, and microwave friendly.
What should I consider while using porcelain in the microwave?
First of all, some ceramic dishes are more prone to cracking than others. If a dish doesn’t have formulated glazes – meaning the glaze has not been fired at a high temperature – it is at risk. Pieces fired at the home typically have unformulated glazes.
Revol glazed products are fired at a very high temperature of 2408°F. It makes them extremely durable and resistant to heat and thermal shock. They are non-porous and resistant to absorbing fats and liquids. As a result, Revol Porcelain is 100% hygienic and food safe.
Another factor to consider is water trapped inside a container. It can cause overheating. Consequently, breakage may occur. Consider microwaving a tomato or a lime. They will explode in the microwave and juices will go everywhere! Similarly, a dish with water content can cause cracks. Revol porcelain doesn’t absorb any liquids so you won’t have to worry about a fracture.
What type of container or plate should I not use?
Be careful when using plastics in the microwave. They may release toxic chemicals. If they are not specifically labeled as microwave safe, they might melt and release toxins in your food.
Before placing a dish in the microwave, check whether the item has some type of decoration. Be careful to use plates with metal foils as they may release electric sparks, or worse, start a fire. Plates with a metal rim, such as gold, silver, or aluminum, should never be placed inside the microwave.
Finally, you may also be wondering about dangerous chemicals like lead and arsenic inside the glaze. Can they be released while the microwave is heating? Yes, it is true that some materials will emit toxic pollutants while heated. These can enter your food. Revol porcelain dishes are entirely free from these harmful chemicals and are entirely food safe.
