and it's on a food surface, you should not be using it at all. The "bubbles" are glaze that did not properly adhere to the clay surface and can break, leaving you with broken bits, sharp edges and places for bacteria to settle and multiply.
My pottery is safe for occasional MW use, but I always advise to test a piece first by putting water in it and heating for a minute or so. Test the piece carefully to see if the pottery is hot. If it is, then be sure to use hand protection for removing it from the MW.
Every good dish deserves a good pot.
