long fork tines keep snapping. theyre red hot and silver plated. why?

One should avoid putting silver forks (or any silverware) in a microwave oven.

What kid of fork? Garden?

You have a choice if garden:

1. Only use on soft earth

2 Make the tines red hot and allow to cool slowly this will soften them so they bend rather than snap.

Oh and I suspect your fork is stainless steel which is more brittle than normal steel.
