    I put my chocolate pudding in the microwave and only when it had finished I realised the spoon wasn't on the side... but nothing happened?

    Anyone accidentally put something metal in their microwave and it exploded?

    In Freshers one of my house mates put some metal it and it sparked a bit, it didn't explode. Two weeks later it exploded internally and then caught alight inside.
    Not sure if the two were related but it freaked me out

    haha nice... i think microwave + metal dangers are a bit exaggerated. The way people go on about it you'd think it'd create a mushroom cloud the instant they touch...

    This wouldn't do much, but put in a fork in a bowl of water and put that in the microwave, then watch what happens.

    I always stick metal goods in my toaster to try to tempt it... nothing has come of it just yet. I don't know where I'm going wrong.

    if the metal isnt pointed it shouldnt spark, a smooth spoon should keep an even current, unlike a fork..dont try it.

    also if you boil water in a microwave safe cup and then add a spoon you can create a big explosion
    very dangerous...
