I am most likely the only one in the entire country who just thought of this, but . . . I find by placing a salad or dinner plate under the bowl of soup or chili I am heating in the microwave oven certainly makes life easier when it's time to remove it. You need the plate for crackers or a sandwich anyway.

Very good idea!! Thank you, Mitzi
That is an ingenious idea! Wish I had thought of it myself. LOL Thanks for sharing and God bless you.
A plate under a bowl of soup or oatmeal catches boil overs and it's easier to remove a hot bowl from the microwave by grabbing the much cooler plate underneath it. Also a paper coffee filter inverted on top of the bowl (like a hat) stops splatters better that a paper towel that tends to droop down into the liquid and get soggy and they are probably cheaper, too.
You're probably not the last person that just thought of using a plate under a bowl of food being heated in the microwave. In addition to easier handling the plate also helps if the soup or liquid bubbles over. The mess is caught on the plate.
