I recently bought 4 Denby Merlot bowls from an ebay seller and they are microwave safe stoneware. Today I warmed some soup in it in the microwave for only 1 minute. While the soup was still luke warm, the bowl was super hot to the touch. But my old Corelle bowls never got this hot in one minute. I replaced my Corelle with Denby to ensure that I am using lead and cadmium free dinnerware. I am having difficulty understanding why the Denby bowls get so hot and if this is expected, Will appreciate your quick reply.
Anne, Thanks for your answer. However, Denby products are all lead and cadmium free which is why it surprised me that it got so hot. Has anybody else with Denby bowls have had the same experience?
I have already put the bowl in the oven at 220 C.
I already baked the cake and the bowl has already cooled down. Is it safe to eat the cake?
It’s made of a very durable plastic-y kind of material, and I’ve had it for about 3 years, during which time I’ve put it in the microwave successfully thousands of times. And I don’t recall the box the bowls came in saying that you couldn’t put them in the microwave. But today, when i was heating up some spaghetti-o’s in the bowl, i heard a loud pop, and the bowl had cracked all down the side and bottom.
Why, after 3 years and many successful microwave heatings, did the bowl crack???
I have two wooden bowls, one out of bamboo that is from Target and another that was hand carved out of a single piece of hard wood. Do you think it is ok to to microwave them? I’m scared to try because I don’t want to ruin either one!
I bought this bowl a few months ago and it has become my favorite. It’s the perfect size for everything! I don’t know why I didn’t check to see if it was microwave safe though. Anyway, the price stick on the bottom fell off to reveal it isn’t microwave safe. I microwave stuff in it everyday! Obviously the bowl is still fine and hasn’t melted, but are there chemicals that comes off the bowl that I eat when I microwave it? It is dishwasher safe, if that makes a difference.
As plain as that, what’s the danger if you put a plain ceramic bowl in the microwave oven and the bowl is not specified as microwave safe?
Well, obviously, since I am asking, I haven’t tried, but mistakes do happen.
