I sometimes heat up soup or milk in the m/wave; or make custard or porridge.

I don't like glass or plastic jugs in there, as I fear one day they will shatter. I mostly use plastic jugs or containers like tupperware, but they get burned round the top,.

What's a microwave-safe jug I can get?

I always use my Pyrex measuring jug. It's about 25 years old and is used at least once a day at home, or up to a dozen or so when I'm working (caterer).

Pyrex. It honestly won't shatter and it's not going to release nasty organic chemical into fatty foods like plastic will.

We have some of the vented lid soup cups and a pan made by Sistema which supposedly don't contain plastic nasties.

We have a pair of Le creuset soup bowls we frequently use for microwaving beans, soup etc. They are the perfect size for a standard tin, and obviously you can eat straight from them too, if required. I often see them in Tkmaxx.
