In this regard, what can I use to cover my microwave?

The following is a list of products that can be used to cover foods for microwave cooking:

  1. Paper towels allow steam to escape while they promote even heating and prevent spatters.
  2. Waxed paper holds in heat for faster cooking without steaming the food.
  3. Plastic wrap holds in steam and heat.

Subsequently, question is, can silicone covers go in the microwave? Benefits of Silicone Food Covers Oven resistant to 230 degrees Celsius, silicone food covers can be used to cover food that you're steaming or as a splash guard for frying. They are also microwave safe, dishwasher safe and suitable for use in the freezer.

Also Know, do you need to cover food in microwave?

The moist heat created when food is steamed or vented with a lid that's not too tight also helps destroy harmful bacteria. Though it's always a good idea to cover food when reheating it in the microwave (otherwise that cleaning schedule will be on overdrive), microwaving food in an airtight container is a no-no.

How do you keep a microwave from splattering?

Keep the microwave clean by covering food with coffee filters. It's safer than using plastic wrap and keeps the splatters to a minimum. If I do get splatters, I put a wet filter in the microwave, turn it on for 15 seconds and then wipe the softened foodstuff off with the wet filter.
