Microwave Use Tips

DO NOT put the following items into the microwave:

  • utensils, foil, trays, Styrofoam or metal trim dishes
  • gold or silver trimmed dishes will cause electrical problems in the microwave

Microwaves are not made to cook raw rice. Please use only instant rice packets or instant rice bowls in the microwave. Attempting to boil rice using the microwave burns the porcelain and causes black stains and bubbles.

DO NOT overcook food.

DO NOT leave the microwave unattended when paper, plastic or other combustible materials are placed inside the oven while cooking.

If oatmeal is overcooked it will splatter, attach, and harden to the inside of the microwave and cause it to peel. Please use caution.

All students will be held responsible for any damage found to their microwave.
