Use Microwave Glass Plate Under Your House Plants

When my microwave finally quit on me, I decided to find a use for the glass turntable.

I had purchased some nice glass plant stands from Cost Plus in the past and decided that I could make a similar base for my large African violet pot from the turntable.


My husband is a great lover of what he jokingly refers as LRF or little rubber feet. He is always finding something to attach them to. I took some of his larger feet and adhered them to the bottom of the turntable.

Next I added a pretty crochet doily with pansies and viola a nice plant stand that is also functional, in that is helps contain any drips.

Great idea also one might place these plates on a round table they can make? The table usually is presswood so if you get them wet they deteriorate fast. You place your cloth over the table as usual but now you can set your beverage or other item with a bit more protection. I see so many of these MW ovens on the side the road and the plate is something that I have not tried to recycle.

Bonus when using it for plants because, on a stand or a deep sill of a sunny window, it's perfect for rotating plants for both ease of thoroughly watering as well as regular turning to expose all angles of plants to light.

I use ine when I have to ice a cake. It turns much easier than an ordinary plate.
