Why Can’t Metal Go In A Microwave?

Unless the metal container you are using is labeled microwave safe, metal is unsafe to use in a microwave. Metal reflects microwaves generated by the magnetron back to itself, changing the charge of the metal and causing sparks from the metal to the wall of the microwave. If you do place metal in the microwave you will risk damaging the microwave and risk causing a fire.
