Microwaving Plastic VS. Food Grade Silicone

According to the World Health Organization(WHO), microwaving food is generally safe. However, microwaving in plastic containers is associated with increased leaching — the transfer or leaking of chemicals into food. Note that even if a plastic container is labeled “microwave safe,” that simply means it won't melt.
Alternatively, food grade silicone does not leach harmful chemicals into the food you are heating.
Silicone cookware can withstand extremely high amounts of heat, making them great for use in the microwave or the oven.
You could also take the silicone straight out of the freezer and pop it directly into the microwave and not need to worry about damaging your dish, unlike with plastic or glass, which would most likely break.
