Read the package heating instructions to see if the food manufacturer has specific recommendations for microwaving the product.

Use new, smooth foil only. Wrinkled foil can cause arcing (sparks).

Cover no more than 1/4 of the food with foil.

Shape the foil smoothly to the food so no edges stick out.

Do not place the foil closer than one inch from the oven walls.

If the microwave oven has metal shelves OR a metal turntable, don’t microwave food in foil containers or metal pans, and don’t let foil used for shielding touch or be close to the shelves or turntable.

If you see arcing (sparks), immediately remove the foil shielding; transfer frozen food from foil container to a microwave-safe utensil.
