Metal in the Microwave...can
But why? What would happen? Will it really burn the whole house down like Mom says? Then, as the water rotates, it bangs into its neighbors and dumps that energy into the rest of your meal in the form of heat.

A little bit of the wave energy shuffles the loose electrons on the surface of the metal around, and the rest of the wave simply gets reflected.
