Why food is not heated evenly

It's a big mistake to heat a lot of different foods on the same plate. This action will cause one food to be very hot and the other to remain cold. Uneven heating also occurs because you don't turn or stir the contents of the plate periodically: you shouldn't forget about this.

Do not heat liquids in smooth glass containers

To heat liquids, choose dishes with an uneven surface. If it is smooth glass, for example, it will get very hot and there is a risk of burns.
