If you use your microwave a lot, but do not feel like cleaning it every time you use it, then a microwave cover is the perfect product for you.
Microwave covers keep the inside of your microwave clean, and they can also keep your food warm after it is done cooking.
There are many different sizes, styles, and colors of microwave covers, but they all work relatively the same.
All microwave covers have vent holes in them to release steam, so your food does not get soggy or rubbery as it cooks.
All of the microwave covers we will be reviewing are reusable, and most of them are dishwasher safe. These microwave covers fit over most plates and bowls that fit in the microwave.
So, without further ado, let’s get to reviewing these four microwave covers.
Tovolo Vented and Collapsible Microwave Cover
You can purchase the Tovolo microwave cover in one of three colors charcoal, red, or blue.
One amazing feature of this microwave cover is it can be collapsed, so you can easily store it wherever you want.
This microwave cover has a lot of little vent holes in the top to allow steam to escape evenly.
A surprising thing about this microwave cover is it can also be used as a colander if you flip it upside down!
The Tovolo microwave cover is made of heat-resistant and BPA-free plastic and silicone that is super durable.
This microwave cover has easy finger grip handle grooves that make removing it from the microwave a breeze.
This microwave cover has a diameter of 10 inches on the inside, 10.5 inches on the outside, and 3 inches tall. Once the microwave cover is collapsed, it is only .75 inches tall.
Microwave Splatter Cover with Handle 2-Pack
This one comes with not one but two microwave covers! They each have a different colored handle, one is orange, and one is green.
These microwave covers have a big handle on their side that closely resembles a coffee mug handle.
The handles on these microwave covers stay cool to the touch, so there is no need to worry about burning your fingers.
On the outside, these microwave covers are 10.5 inches in diameter and 4.2 inches tall.
It is not recommended to use these microwave covers for longer than nine minutes at one time.
These microwave covers are made of BPA-free and extremely see-through plastic.
The vents on the top of these microwave covers are adjustable so that you can change the size of the vent holes from small holes to one big hole.
These microwave covers are easy to clean but do not seem to be dishwasher safe.
Progressive International Vented Microwave Food Cover
The Progressive International microwave cover has an easy-to-clean, non-stick surface.
This microwave cover is made of high heat polypropylene plastic. It is also dishwasher safe, although it is probably safer to wash it by hand.
This microwave cover has a lot of vent holes around the top side edge of it, and it has finger grip handle grooves on top of the microwave cover. You can purchase this microwave cover in either clear or gray plastic.
The finger grip handle on this microwave cover might get pretty hot, so you should be very careful when removing it from the microwave.
When removing this microwave cover from the microwave, it is best to angle the top of the microwave cover toward you so the steam goes into the microwave and does not touch your skin.
The size of this microwave cover is 10.25 inches in diameter and 3.25 inches tall on the outside. This seems to be the smallest microwave cover of the four.
Mikro Glass Microwave Food Plate Cover
This microwave cover is made of borosilicate glass, which is highly durable. The top of this microwave cover only has two small-sized vent holes on the top, but it still lets out a lot of steam.
On top of this microwave, the cover is an orange or black handle like the one you would find on a frypan or a pot lid.
The microwave cover handle is made of silicone that stays cool to the touch.
Since this microwave cover is made of glass, it is easy to see through, and it is also very easy to clean because you can pop it right into the dishwasher.
This microwave cover is naturally BPA-free since it is made mostly of glass.
This is the biggest microwave cover with a diameter of 11.8 inches and a height of 6 inches.
Since this microwave cover is so big and made of glass, it might be a bit heavy.
Buying Guide: How to find the best microwave cover for your needs
When deciding which microwave cover to buy, it is good to buy one that fits your needs and your microwave best.
For instance, you should purchase a microwave cover that fits inside your microwave, and if you really do not like doing dishes, then the microwave cover should also be dishwasher safe.
So, with those things in mind, the best microwave cover of these four seems to be the Tovolo Vented Collapsible microwave cover since it can be collapsed and stored anywhere, and it could also be used as a colander.
If you are looking for a better deal and do not mind washing your dishes by hand, then the Microwave Splatter Cover is the best option for you because it comes with two microwave covers but does not seem to be dishwasher safe.
The prices of these microwave covers vary greatly from $32 for the more expensive microwave cover to $8 for the least expensive microwave cover.
Microwave covers are definitely worth the money because they save you time by not having to clean your microwave every time you use it.
Now that we have gone through all of the very different options for microwave covers, it is up to you to make the final decision on which one would work best for you.
