Urmaniac, you really shouldn't use plastic in the microwave. As it heats, it produces a substance that is dangerous to your health.
Just use a covered glass casserole dish for your vegies...it'll work just fine. I add a little water or chicken broth so they'll steam.

I don't do much actual cooking in my microwave. I sometimes use it to partially cook a casserole, lasagna, etc. I put it in the microwave while the oven is preheating so it takes about half as long to cook, but still has all the flavor and appearance of one totally cooked in the oven. It has saved much time for me. DH heats coffee throughout the day every day. I don't drink reheated coffee, but enjoy reheated leftovers. They are the best.
