You can just take stuff out of the container, too.Precisely the reason I prefer glass whenever possible, even if it's more expensive. As long as you don't drop it I feel it lasts much longer than nasty, discolored plastic.
I usually reheat leftovers in a ceramic bowl with a matching plate on top
Just do low and slow. Ive never had anything explode reheating at like 60 or 70% power. Max power cooks meats extra too.Learning this trick (lids on cups, bowls over plates) cuts >90% of the need to clean the microwave of splatter in laboratory testing.
Some testers had trouble adjusting to the sound of the lid chirping as steam escaped.
