are all plastic containers incl.those that are microwaveable petroleum by-products and thus health hazards?

(continued) especially once the plastic containers start pitting when
heated in the microwave with food?

    I also had my concerns so did a whole lot of reading on the subject. My conclusion is that it’s best to use inert materials like Pyrex or Corning-ware. If you must use "plastic type" materials use only those labeled as safe for the microwave. I do use the Tupperware Rock ‘n Serves the other poster mentioned since they are made for microwave use. I never use the disposable Ziploc or Glad type containers. I don’t know if they’re microwave safe but since they’re so soft I wouldn’t use them.

    What I’m wondering about now is all the silicone products that have flooded the market. I’ll have to do more reading!

    Buy those made of lexan, including tupperware’s new rock’n’serve, asincevailable at target. These cannot pit or leach plastics into your food.
    Otherwise, buy the kind made to be disposed after a few uses, such as gladware or ziplockware. safer and you can throw them out guilt-free if they get stained or filled with green food.
