Microwave + Glass

Microwave + Glass

TheToyGuy TheToyGuy
I've got a lot of glassware sex toys and most of it can be heated via microwave or in hot water but I've got some new stuff which has little air-bubble-like stuff inside them and I'm not too sure if it is going to be OK to heat them in a microwave.

Thoughts?

One, if it is microwave-able ? 2. You probably wouldn't heat it long anyway, unless you are into BSDM and want some pain.
Hey, just funning.

Yeah but even the slightest heat on some stuff will cause it to crack or explode.

Doubled walled cups are a great example of that effect.

I wouldn't. Although I suppose borosilicate glass is safe for microwaving, it would create areas of uneven heat that would cause some pretty serious burns. I always suggest placing a toy in a bowl of warm water, or resting on a towel which is resting on a hot pad set to low.

I usually use a heat pack but sometimes keeping stuff hot takes too long so microwave is way faster.

I've read that bubbles in glass means it's weak.

Have you Googled it? Might find some concrete info.

Personally, I'd not take a chance w/ it unless I didn't care if I lost the piece because it cracked or broke.

And hey, if you have a piece like that, experiment w/ it - test it, but go ahead & use it if no cracks appear.

So I put it in the microwave and because of the contours and ribs it heated unevenly.

So I put it in again and let it heat bit more and it did not explode.

However it still did not heat evenly so I'm going to have to use a jug of "boiling hot water" method.

That said it gave me a chance to play with my other glass stuff and some of it just won't heat in a microwave like other stuff will.

I'd be too concerned about micro'ing them. That said, do the packages say they're microwavable?

Some do, mostly just 15 second bursts or heat in microwave safe dish filled with water (like hotdogs).
