I did a favor for one of my female associates in the office, and she kindly
reciprocated with a small loaf of home baked banana bread on a paper plate with
plastic wrap and a nice pretty bow on it.
Umh, I just put the whole thing in the microwave to heat it up as didn't see
any "metal" involved.
Fortunately I was standing right there when black smoke started pouring out so
shut it off and opened the m/wave door to see a small fire inside.
Maybe it was the plastic wrap, but I discovered that the bow material had
"hidden" WIRES inside of the material ;-(
You haven't lived until you have you have had to scrub a thick layer of black
smoke/soot off the inside of an all white microwave.
Yup, watch out for those "hidden" wires...and not just with antennas!!!
