Can cheap plastic food containers (like from Ikea) be harmful if microwaved, even though they state they are microwave-safe?

    It actually depends on what type of plastic they are made out of. Some plastics are considered harmful because they contain BPA and other chemicals. If you want to avoid adding any potentially harmful chemicals to your food, I suggest you use glass containers in the microwave. There are some great articles on the internet about plastics. Here is one of the better ones. It is well researched and has sources for facts.
