    I had a bad experience with metal in microwaves, i tried to soften some butter in the microwave and i forgot the wrapping around the butter was metal, and it caught fire!


    if you put the means in a plastic/ceramic/glass bowl you can heat them up in the microwave. Alternatively you can put them in a saucepan and heat then on the hob...

    put the baked beans into a bowl (glass, ceramic etc.... not a plastic one... unless its a special plastic microwavable one) and put in microwave... stir it halfway thru heating...

    i was tempted, but then i thought, if i do self-catered i wont feel bad about missing breakfast. Also its seems so schooly, sitting on big ol' tables like that...

    PS: i used the bowl idea, and it seems to be working fine

    I can't use microwaves.... I tried to heat a croissant and it came out looking like charcoal. I couldn't break it either!

    that is my first and only encounter with a microwave, so I hope I don't have to use them when I go to uni!

    You can open it and put them in the oven! Alternatively, you can cook them in the can in the kettle

    And don't plunge a metal spoon into boiling liquid immediately after taking the liquid out of the microwave either. It is likely to boil over.

    Always remove twist ties from fozen food. They often contain a metal strip which you can't see.

    Don't use patterned plates. The design may contain metal.
