Warning...the lead in dishes can ruin your micowave!! I clean my microwave by filling a small clear glass bowl full of water and add some lemon juice, set on high for 5 minutes. This fills the oven with steam and makes it easy to clean. This has worked for years, but a few days ago I used a small white bowl filled with water and it broke the glass turn table and melted part of the arm under the turn table, plus cracked the bowl. The bowl was made in China and came from Pier 1, when I examined the bowl I could see silver all around the bottom lip. I am guessing lead, and when it got really hot it caused the glass to break and melted the plastic arm.
The parts cost almost as much as a new oven, so am out the cost of an oven. Lesson learned, use only clear glass in the microwave.
