Precaution to take

Liquids heated in the microwave can become extremely hot and “explode”. It’s not a common occurrence, but it can happen.

However, the boiling phenomenon does not occur in containers whose surface is perfectly smooth.

Therefore, if you use a smooth container, no bubbles will form. Namely, there will be no boiling of the liquid.

But as soon as the container undergoes a movement, it can cause an « explosion ».

For example, when you open the microwave and take out the bowl.

That said, don’t worry too much, as the vast majority of commercial bowls and other containers are only NOT perfectly smooth.

Indeed, even surfaces that appear totally smooth to the touch are actually covered with small imperfections and roughness.

They allow boiling bubbles to form.

In addition, the rotation of microwave turntables creates enough movement to allow liquids to boil.

But, for safety and to avoid any accident, do not forget to insert a toothpick in your container of vinegar water.

This allows bubbles to form on the wood of the toothpick, allowing water with vinegar to boil WITHOUT exploding.
