It’s difficult to assess how well heat evenly distributes through meat depending on its thickness. Bacteria can grow and spread when heat isn’t properly distributed. So, its best to defrost meat in the refrigerator.

 

6) Travel Mugs and Bottles

Unless your bottle or mug specifically says that it’s microwave safe, then you should keep it out of your microwave. The stainless steel can block heat from warming the contents of your mug and also damage your microwave. The plastic type can melt.

 

7) Yogurt or Butter Containers
