Can Varga Crystal Be Used In The Microwave?

From The Mailbag:

Q: I have crystal patterns from such manufacturers as Varga Crystal, William Yeoward Crystal and Portieux. Can I use them in the microwave?

A: I assume you have some sort of dish which you would like to heat food on, stemware don't really have anything to do with a microwave.

As to your question, no crystal should not be used in the microwave. the reason is because crystal is made out of glass and lead, and metals get ruined by the microwave. See our previous post on china in the microwave for more details.
