What Are the Disadvantages of a Microwave Oven?

Answer

The disadvantages of microwave ovens are that the amount of nutrient foliate is reduced by a negligible amount. For example vitamin B12 in food is lowered by 30 to 40 percent. Microwaves sometimes tend to melt the plastic containers that hold the food being warmed and they do not support metal food holders. Other disadvantages include burnout and superheating as well as other theories of negative effects especially on health.
