Today I made some of my work colleagues a bit upset. I microwaved some broccoli, and long story short the kitchen smelt pretty awful. I realized that if I ever want to have my work friends again it would be best to take a look at what foods I should avoid microwaving.

Here are some of the worst foods to microwave. Don't forget to let us know what you think at the end with our poll.

5) Peppers or hot food.

I just learned this today. Fun fact did you know If the spice gets airborne, it can mix with the liquid in your eyes and cause a burning sensation? Yikes!

4) Eggs

I actually knew this one, but it's always a good reminder that eggs in the microwave is a bad idea. They may not smell bad, but they do explode! So that will be a great mess for you to clean up.


3) Fish

This one is a classic. It will for sure get you on the work place hit list. That smell hangs around!

2) Bacon

Sure the smell of bacon is fine. It's strong, but it still smells good, but burnt bacon is another story. A few seconds too long and it's popping around making a mess AND causing a smell.


1) Popcorn 

Much like bacon it smells good when it's made right, but it's a weird lunch time meal. It's more of a social snack, not to mention if you burn this one the kitchen will smelt like burnt death for the next few hours!
