OK you can not put metal in a microwave, so how come some of them have their interiors made of stainless steel?

The edge.
the walls focus the radiation properly, the inside of the oven is 'tuned' if you like. putting other metal objects in reflects the waves randomly, instead of absorbing them like foods/liquids do, and thats when the trouble starts

I watched one of the mates warm up a meal in the micro for about 5 mins with a metal fork in the container. I was convinced that it would explode and kill everyone near it but luckily for me it did naff all.... a bit of a let down really lol.

However. I stil wont risk it.l

I've seen people heat pies with the tin foil bottom still on with no problems at all.

I've had an egg eggsplode in a microwave, nice mess that made. :)

I've done the 'metal in a microwave' eggperiment and all it did was make some nice artificial lightening :)

I'd love to put a can of gas in there ;)

it dont need to be wet, the microwaves excite the argon gas inside the buld, which causes it to light, flourescent tubes do it as well
