Microwaving Water Warning

Microwaving Water!

A description of an accident that has occurred when microwaving water has
been circulated around the internet for some time. It usually goes like
this:
---
A 26-year old man decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water
and put it in the microwave to bring the water to a boil (something that he
had done numerous times before). When the timer shut the oven off, he
removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted the
water was not boiling, but suddenly the water in the cup 'blew up' into his
face. All the water had flown out into his face due to the build-up of
energy. His whole face got blistered and he had severe burns to his face.

While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated this was
a fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a
microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be
placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as a wooden stir stick, tea
bag, etc., (nothing metal).
---

Apparently, what happens is that the water heats faster than vapor bubbles
can form. If the cup is very new, then it is unlikely to have small surface
scratches inside it that provide a place for the bubbles to form. As the
bubbles cannot form and release some of the heat that has built up, the
liquid does not boil, and the liquid continues to heat up well past its
boiling point.

What then usually happens is that the liquid is bumped or jarred, which is
just enough of a shock to cause the bubbles to rapidly form and expel the
hot liquid. The rapid formation of bubbles is also why a carbonated
beverage spews when opened after having been shaken.


U. S. Federal Food and Drug Administration Warning:
---------------------------------------------------

Risk of Burns from Eruptions of Hot Water Overheated in Microwave Ovens

The FDA has received reports of serious skin burns or scalding injuries
around people's hands and faces as a result of hot water erupting out of a
cup after it had been over-heated in a microwave oven. Over-heating of
water in a cup can result in superheated water (past its boiling
temperature) without appearing to boil.

This type of phenomena occurs if water is heated in a clean cup. If foreign
materials such as instant coffee or sugar are added before heating, the
risk is greatly reduced. If superheating has occurred, a slight disturbance
or movement such as picking up the cup, or pouring in a spoon full of
instant coffee, may result in a violent eruption with the boiling water
exploding out of the cup.

What Can Consumers Do to Avoid Super-Heated Water?

1. Follow the precautions and recommendations found in the microwave oven
instruction manuals, specifically the heating time.

2. Do not use excessive amounts of time when heating water or liquids in
the microwave oven.

3. Determine the best time setting to heat the water just to the desired
temperature and use that time setting regularly.

NOTES: This cozy all-in-one-pan Amish Country Meat Loaf and Potato
Casserole is so simple to make and such a satisfying main dish meal. It
fits a busy weeknight or a leisurely family Sunday dinner to a 'T'.

Bobbie's Note: This was very good. I like a little more seasoning in
meatloaf but that can be remedied.
