NOTE: The NZ Food Safety Authority (Aug 2008) recommends that when using household cling film for microwave cooking, don’t let it touch the food as it melts at a low temperature and can potentially release chemicals if it drops onto the food. Leaving a corner of the dish uncovered to let steam escape reduces the risk of the film splitting and blowing off and settling on the food.
