Uhh, I'm not sure you should be using a metal bowl in a microwave as the metal reacts with the radiation produced by the microwave and creates a spark. (that's what happened with mine)

Some metals are safe to place in the microwave, but most are not and it is difficult to tell which ones are safe and which ones are not. As a rule, you are correct, it's best to not do it unless the bowl is advertised as microwave safe.

Oh! I didn't know that. Thanks!

No it didn't give me any trouble at all. It might have been hotter than other microwavable bowls but other than that no issues!

This looks like a great recipe!

Does that metal bowl give you any trouble using it in the microwave like that?
