Can Paper Salad Bowls Be Microwaved

January 21,2022

Salad bowl containers are generally paper, recyclable and reusable. So, can they be microwaved?


Paper salad bowls can be heated in the microwave.


The paper salad bowl itself is microwave safe as long as it's not too long. However, if the food is high in fat, it is easy to contaminate the box with oil at high temperature, thereby contaminating the hygiene of the food. Therefore, it is ok to place low-fat food. If the high-fat food is not, it cannot be put into the microwave oven with a paper salad bowl.

How to use microwave oven correctly?


1️⃣Do not use closed containers when using microwave ovens: wide-mouth containers should be used when heating liquids, because the heat generated by heating food in closed containers is not easy to dissipate, which makes the pressure in the container too high, which may easily cause explosion accidents. Even when frying food with shells, use a needle or chopsticks to pierce the shell membrane in advance, so as not to cause bursting, splashing and dirtying the furnace wall after heating.


2️⃣Avoid fried foods in microwave ovens: due to high temperature oil will splash and cause open flames. If you accidentally cause a fire in the furnace, do not open the door, but turn off the power first, and then open the door to cool down after the fire is out. Avoid placing the microwave oven in the bedroom, and at the same time, pay attention to the heat dissipation grille on the microwave oven not to be covered by objects.


3️⃣Avoid working in front of the microwave for a long time. After turning on the microwave oven, people should stay away from the microwave oven or at least 1 meter away from the microwave oven. Pregnant women and children are best kept away from microwave ovens. The microwave oven should be cleaned frequently, and special attention should be paid to removing the residue on the door to avoid microwave leakage caused by the door being not closed tightly.
