    I was wondering if insulbrite batting would work just as well as warm tater batting, it's for a bowl potholder that you can microwave. Any thoughts?

    I've never used Insulbrite but is it 100% cotton? That's what you need if it's going in the microwave, otherwise it may catch on fire.

    Insulbrite has the silver stuff in it. Can you safely put that in the microwave?

    I understand the you shouldn't put insul-brite in the microwave because it contains some reflective material for the heat to be reflected. I would suggest you use the warm tater batting only if you are putting the item in the microwave.

    I have used them in the micro with no problems. It can't reflect if the fabric is covering the silver.

    According to the Insul-Bright wrapper, it is not intended for Microwave use. Stick with Warm Tater Batting for anything that is going in the microwave. Use Insul-Bright for hot pads, casserole carriers and oven mitts.

    Someone said <<<>>> its covered with batting... NOT TRUE !

    That is like saying that a piece of silverware can be put into a microwave if wrapped in a napkin or something... NOT SO ! ! !

    http://www.warmcompany.com/ibpage.html MAKES IT VERY CLEAR IN BIG RED LETTERS... DO NOT USE IN THE MICROWAVE... (it does contain a metallic substance.

    I thought they came out with the Warm Tater because InsulBright was catching fire in microwaves. That's why they have so many warnings on the InsulBright package these days (the old packages did not).
