The metal has to actually be exposed to the microwaves in order for it to cause sparking. I used to use a chrome-rimmed bowl to heat leftovers at work; I covered the bowl with a paper towel and never had a problem.

I'm baffled by the garbanzo issue, though.

Should have read that So covering the food while microwaving should solve the problem.
