Expecting a kid to know to not put metal in a microwave without being told is like expecting anti-obesity groups to blame parents rather than McDonalds for child obesity.

mamamiaaa - maybe the kid has been told before but forgot?? I accidentally put something covered in alfoil in the microwave once - we have a convection oven and at first I was intending to cook the item with the oven function, then changed my mind and set it to microwave, forgetting the food was covered in alfoil :P Fortunately after the first spark I reacted fast enough to turn it off and nothing was destroyed :P I'm not sure whether to say this is YDI or FYL without knowing how old the kid is. If they were 6 or 7 I'd say YDI, but if the kid is 12 or 13 I'd say FYL.

No, it wouldn't be a microwave oven anymore. Microwaves use dielectric heating which by nature isn't too compatible with metals due to them being conducting =)

I they're just learning to use a microwave, they had better three-five. When I was five, I was making my own microwave scrambled eggs for breakfast. So hopefully they aren't six or seven.

When I was eight, I put my spoon in my soup bowl because I thought "then its less work putting it back in after " one freaked out mother and a broken microwave later, I realize that might not of been such a good idea.

whoisthisgirl - uhhh.... "old" has nothing to do with it... you shouldn't put metal in a microwave! While newer microwaves might not get *ruined* by it, it's still a hazard and can create sparks and stuff.

The X-Men comment made me giggle :) And OP, dont forget Pop Tarts. I microwaved a Pop Tart YEARS ago leaving it laying on the wrapper. I heard a buzz and the wrapper disappeared and my Pop Tart was ruined :(

Agreed. I remember the first time I found out you don't put metal in the microwave. I think I was six. I was trying to make tea, and so I put water into our tiny metal teapot. There were purple lights, and I thought it was really cool and pretty until my mom freaked out. OP, your child isn't dumb; you are for not informing them on how to use a microwave properly.

I put corn flakes (or any kind of cereal for that matter) in the microwave. I put in a little milk, put the bowl in for 30-60 seconds, and when it is done, it's all mushy and warm, which makes a nice breakfast on a cold day. :)
