Introduction of Whirlpool's Ventless Dryer

Whirlpool has just launched one of the most innovative clothes dryers to come along in years:  a full-sized ventless dryer.      

The “ventless” feature makes it unique, because – for the first-time ever – there is no need to have this full-sized unit externally vented. This means that you now have the flexibility to put this dryer anywhere you have access to water drain (needed for the washer anyway) and a 220-volt outlet to plug the dryer in.  It has never been easier to bring the laundry upstairs (or anywhere else!) without the added expense of running dryer venting.

If you have done any type of online investigating you will very quickly learn the popularity of this question and just how much it has been researched. Many studies done to determine the safety of plastic in your Microwave and exactly what is leaching into your food. So the question I have is this: “what on earth does microwave safe mean”?
