When buying plastic tableware, first look at whether the logo is complete, and then look at the product. The surface of the product should be smooth, free of stains, impurities, scratches, cracks, etc., and no discoloration or fading. You can also smell it to see if there is any odor such as irritating taste. The most important thing is to look at the product logo. This standard stipulates that the product must be marked with the manufacturer's name or trademark, material, temperature of use, etc. It should be marked, "This standard is clear, and if it is not marked, it is regarded as available."
There are many types of tableware for microwave ovens, but the labels are different. Some indicate the use temperature and method of use, while others only indicate the use temperature, and some have neither the use temperature nor any instructions for use. Guangdong is a concentrated area and main distribution center for thermoplastic tableware production enterprises. However, due to the lack of uniform standards, the quality of products in the market varies greatly. Some enterprises use low-quality and low-cost products to seize the market.
Use: only recommended for short-term heating below 700W
Generally speaking, products marked on the market with a temperature of 140°C are relatively safe. However, even microwave plastic tableware that has passed the standard test is only recommended to be used under short-term heating conditions below 700W, unless the product is marked as available. It can only be used under stricter conditions if it has been used for cooking or has obtained other more demanding international certifications.
