If you're worried about the microwaves, don't be: they're all contained inside a metal box and shouldn't (unless it's badly damaged) leak out to harm you. And so long as you follow the time/setting guidelines for what you're cooking, all should be well. (As with anything else, some things -- e.g. raw chicken -- can be dangerous if undercooked, but that would apply to a regular oven as well.)<br />
So don't worry. The colour and texture of the results may not be quite the same as cooking the old fashioned way, but it's all perfectly safe. :)
Microwaves don't make the food very nice, but they're perfectly safe.
I hate them, it ruined my salad
So far so good, but I don't like the way it looks at me.
Does it look a bit glazed?
It thinks it's so hot.
I absolutely see no reason why they would not be safe....
I have anotherone, just like that:
Not safe. They use radiation that poisons the food and silently hurts anyone who stands nearby. Eat a "nuked" bowl of soup and die slowly. Never feed it to children, that could be very bad. <br />
LOLOL. Some people are so gullible.
If they aren't safe then I'm doomed
Just don't microwave your food in a plastic container. Use glass.
Yes, I know.
No. They will suck out your soul.
We've survived for 40+ years having microwaved food, so I don't worry any more. I hardly ever use mine, it cooks corn cobs from frozen in 5 minutes but apart from those I seldom use it
I use the microwave in my apartment as an oven timer. I don't heat my food in it at all anymore. And it's tastes so much better. <br />
I trust them to heat my food of course.. but if I would eat the food afterwards... erm doubt it. ;)
