You can face other kinds of damages, which depend on the cover inside of the microwave. It may be made of stainless steel, ceramic or enamel:
It's pretty tough coating, not subject to extremes of temperature. But at the same time it may be small scratches after exposure to scrubbing.
The walls of the stainless steel is best cleaned with steam or special means for cleaning.
Due to the fact that the ceramic is very smooth, it is less stick drops of fat or food residues. From the mechanical impact on a surface can form visible cracks and chipped.
Pure ceramic best with a soapy solution and a sponge.
Among all the options, the enamel coating to the microwave oven is considered less durable.
Sooner or later from constant exposure to temperature extremes and fat splashing surface begins to bubble and keep up with the device walls.
Clean enamel for microwaves as soon as possible until the pollution has not penetrated into the pores of the material.
