Re: Dishes for Microwave
I hate to say it because they are NOT pretty, but Cool Whip bowls are made of #2 plastic, no BPA or other dangerous additives. They stay cool even when you BOIL greasy casseroles in them! The plastic does not deform or bubble around the edges of the boiling food, though it does stain with tomato or curry. Fortunately the stains come right out with water/bleach. The reason they work so well is that the plastic has to be hot enough to sterilize in the food plant before adding the cool whip. This plastic simply does not retain the heat (unless you boiled something for 15 minutes, say.) They are SOOOO ideal for cooking food in the microwave, that I buy them whether I need whipped topping or not! I save them and guard them like jewels. Then I transfer the cooked food to a pretty bowl for serving. Or it eat food hot out of the Cool Whip bowl, and don't give a hoot how unlovely it looks. I wish I could buy these bowls from the manufacturer before they print on the label, and just use them all the time. If some smart guy or gal could talk to the fabricators, have them make a thicker, prettier bowl using the same plastic, add a lid for storage, and advertise it heavily, I'll bet everyone who owns a microwave would cheer!

best dishes for the microwave
I wrote the original review for cool whip tubs. I MADE A MISTAKE. Cool Whip brand uses plastic #5, which is iffy for safety. Buy a store chain brand, and check the bottom of the tub for the recycle #2. The Cool Whip tubs work equally fine in the microwave, but I don't like plastic #5 because it means some parts of the plastic are unidentifiable, and might contain BPA or other dangerous chemicals.

porcelain I bought some mugs because I heat up my entire mug with water for my tea in the micro and I never burn my lips now.

Re: Dishes for Microwave

I have a Pyrex measuring cup that doesn't get hot. I can heat water to boiling and the handle is still cool enough to be able to pick it up without getting burned. Also have some corning wear bowls and the handle tabs stay cool after heating food in the microwave. Everything else I have tried gets real hot.

Corelle dishes for Microwave

Corelle gets hot just under the food but not at the edges. Have used both old (early corelle) and newer (last 10 years), works about the same. Just handle at the sides, don't expect to hold it directly under the hot food.

Did you find a set that doesn't burn your skin off when microwaved?
