agree  John Speese: I think you're right on, Robert. Some bowls or plates do have a decorative border or edge that is metal and could blow up the microwave. We have some in the cafeteria at work which everyone knows not to microwave!

agree  David Moore: I have a feeling the asker misled you - he may well have meant to say "which CANNOT be put in the microwave", as e.g. gold-plated borders
