When will someone invent microwave ovens that can be used with aluminum foil? Is this even possible? Please explain.?

    Microwave ovens work on the resonant frequency of water molecule. Aluminum foil is a good reflector of electromagnetic waves. It will not allow microwaves to pass through and heat water molecule. You can not use this foil in microwave.

    A uW (microwave) oven used an EM (Electro Magnetic) field to boil water contained in foods to heat them. Aluminum foil and/or any conductive surfaces cause a short circuit in a uW oven and the result is sparks and fire.

    You will never be able to use Alum foil in a uW oven unless someone develops a non electric EM Field or non conductive metal foil. You might use Plastic wrap instead of metal foil.

    EVER POSSIBLE BECAUSE ANY METAL ACTS AS A SHORT CIRCUIT DEVICE IN MICROWAVE OVEN COOKING AREA.

    There is in use quite a few boxes that heat food that incorporate aluminum foil sandwich into the paper like for instance hot pockets! It causes the food to crisp you just can't take loose aluminum foil and put it in a microwave oven. However if the metal is properly sandwiched between layers it can be used to heat the food I wouldn't recommend that you do this yourself purchase Microsoft wave Pan's used to Chrisp food. And also don't put a plate into a microwave that has a silver or gold rim this results in an exploding plate

    No. It is not possible due to the waves

    It is not possible since the microwaves reflect off of metals.
