What kind of container do you use to make microwave hamburger buns?

Hey guys, I'm looking for the perfect container to make microwave hamburger buns. Any suggestions?

Thanks

There is a microwave egg muffin pan that Walmart sells. I've bought 4 of them. I use them to make all my microwave breads and cakes, etc. They are the perfect size and shape. They pop right out of the pan. They were around $4 each I think.

whatever you do, please don't use plastic. while I am not sure silicone is all that much better, I KNOW plastic is terrible. I am pretty sure my terrible metabolism/diabetes is largely attributable to plastic exposure and I don't want anyone else to have to deal with this stuff!

I use porcelain ramekins and glass custard cups for baking in the microwave.

Thnxs for the suggestion.
Thnxs for the reminder about plastic Raven. I've switched all my plastic containers to BPA free plastic.

Either porcelain ramekins or glass bowls. Those are the only things I will use in the microwave.

I'll echo this. Plastic in the microwave is not a good idea.

Or, also at Walmart, a Corningware Grab-It bowl. It's a really good side too.

Size, not side.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I picked up some of those small Pyrex bowls Nigel posted. I couldn't find the grab it bowls. Saw the microwave egg muffin pans, looked like it would have been a perfect size but I wasn't sure if it was BPA free so I didn't get it. Thanks again for all the suggestions.
