    I would be afraid to use them - but if you do and it works I would love to know.

    Gorgeous fabrics! I wish I could help you with an answer, but I really don't know. I agree that I would put a piece of the fabric in and give it a go...standing close by...
    Regards,

    Don't know if the fabric would be microwave safe or not. If it isn't safe you will hear 'snaps' or 'pops', and possibly see sparking. However, you could always microwave the bowl and then remove it with pot holders and put it into your bowl warmer to hold it. Kinda defeats part of the purpose by not heating the bowl in the warmer but it will still protect your hands and table after the bowl is warmed.

    I wouldn't take the chance. I have a coffee mug with a gold rim. I know it is not gold since it was a free mug from a grand opening at some store. When I tried to put it in the microwave the sparks started to fly. If you decide to try it, you should put a bowl with some water in it. You shouldn't put something dry in the oven without some sort of liquid. I read that somewhere sometime ago.
