It's a stupid trick not relevant to my life because those containers aren't used here, with a bonus of infomercial level duh from a videomaker whose mannerisms are of such quiet distaste I find myself seeking cosigners for a class action against this man from every single person who has ever had the misfortune to make eye contact with him while he eats.

The amounts of food in both of those containers are no where near the same. If you tried to plop the amount of noodles from the right container on to the left one, you'd having a giant farking mess.

That said, I have to do a partial deconstruction by removing the wire handle everytime I nuke my leftovers so I don't get Chinese New Year in my microwave.

This is news... for people who arrived here with Mr. H.G. Wells after boarding his time machine in the year 1895.

My family has been doing this for as long as those containers have existed. The ones with the wire handles are the best because you can re-fold them, stick the wire handles back in, and store the leftovers in the fridge. Paper clips punched through roughly the same location allow you to do the same thing for the ones without wire handles, but it's a pain in the ass to find a paper clip in my house. To be honest, we usually don't bother. Instead, we just fold the "plate" into a V shape and pour the leftovers into a seal-able container (which is usually the empty large wonton soup container- reduce/reuse/recycle, as they say).

Obviously, this is NOT a good process for any food that is extra gooey or has lots of liquid.

I leave the wire on all the time. At worst, it will get too hot and burn the container where it attaches to it. To avoid that, microwave for no more than a minute, remove, stir, and repeat until desired temperature is reached.

But if you are dumping the takeout onto several plates, it makes more sense to leave the box intact. You don't have to make a mess of the transfer like they do in the video.

Seattle. Even the mom and pops use the microwave-safe version of that box without the handle. I've never had takeout from the International District though (there's usually nothing left to take when we go there). Maybe they use them there.
