Popping Reusable Plastic Containers into the Microwave
Wahoo, leftovers! Pull them out of the fridge, pop ‘em into the microwave, and you have dinner in minutes. But if you’re using the same plastic container to reheat your food as you used to store it, beware: Not all plastic storage containers are microwave-safe, and if they’re not, those high temperatures could leak plastics into your food. So before you reheat, check the bottom of the container to make sure it’s microwave-safe, or better yet, reheat the food in a glass or ceramic bowl or plate.
