Would you use a microwave if it looked like this inside?

Everyone in the household appears healthy, correct height for age, no extra limbs growing.

I just wondered what others would do...

No. I think it's pretty dangerous once rust patches appear.

Why are you posting pictures of my microwave on the internet? How did you get in my house?! smile

'Microwaves' cannot escape unless there is a hole. Just looks a bit bleurgh!

I would replace it. Imagine all the rust particles going into your food 😱.

No, I'd have to buy a new one.

Though when we moved house, our new dishwasher looked like that on the inside (I wouldn't have thought it possible if I hadn't seen it myself!); DH spent hours scrubbing it and it looks like new and hasn't killed any of us yet.

Is it rust or spilled food? That looks like when my hot chocolate overflows.

The rotating plate thing can be washed in a dishwasher. The rest should just wipe off with a bit of effort. Stick a slice of lemon in a cup of water an microwave for 2 mins to loosen the dirt and then wipe off.

Ours looked like that and I refused to use it as I thought it was dangerous but dp refused to replace it as 'it still worked'

It exploded just before Christmas.

Thankfully we have a new one now with no rust.

If it is rust then yeah not nice. Though I can't imagine how rust particles are going to magically float into your food tbh.

Though if it's just food give it a scrub and it'll be fine
