Re: [Histonet] Microwave drying/paraffin sections from Histonet archives -long but maybe pertinent?

From:Gayle Callis


I agree and that is why some glass and ceramics have warnings on them to 
NOT microwave. That was the point of this comment in the text of my 
reply.  I just did not say ceramics, but I have some in my home that are 
forbidden in a MW oven.  I am aware of warnings - at least with my home MW 
oven -  that MW'ing dry containers in a MW or running a MW without water 
present is not good for the MW oven either.

"Some glass containers have gold borders or other components(?) that are 
not microwaveable, with warnings -  but these are
not glass slides."
