Next thing I hear is my 16 yr old daughter say "Daddy the microwave is on fire". Well I went in the kitchen and daughter had put one of these plastic travel mugs with a metal liner in the microwave and did not realize what she had done.

Got he cup out and no damage to the interior of microwave(it was sitting on the glass plate that rotates) and just a little smoke and sut

Now my question is did it harm the microwave, I have had a couple of folks tell me that it is screwed.

How do I test it

I have a couple of appliance repair guys as clients and have called them and left message to maybe get them to look at it to make sure

Don't know about your microwave but your penance for today shall be coming clean to your daughter that you used the words "BLONDE DAUGHTER" on a message board.

On second thought, better hide that booze
