Well, I own a Panasonic convection micro combo- given to me without the original users instructions. I reheated one of those white paper Asian food carry-out containers that are stapled on the sides (metal staples) for 1 minute and the container was absolutely fine. Now I don't know about large metal objects, but just in case anyone wants to know I thought this might help.

Here's a suggestion. Let the manufacturer make the call on this one. No one on this board can tell for sure without the owners manual or the model number of the machine in question (so one could look at the owner's manual). "No" is a safe answer, but it may not be correct. A combination machine like the convection microwave has expanded cooking capabilities, and anyone who ponies up for one of these puppies should know whether or not something like foil can be used inside it. Some microwave ovens allow a bit of foil over a portion of a food item being cooked, like the ends of drumstick on a bird. If the manufacturer's manual is not handy, it may be possible to go to the manufacturer's web site and actually view it online. Certainly the pamphlet can be had by ordering it. Get the manual. Read it. There might be several things in there that weren't obvious. Like whether or not foil can be used in the oven.

A link is provided to the USDA page with microwave use and safety suggestions. Surf on over and scroll down to the section on the use of foil and see what they have to say.

Yes you can, if using the convection component. It's just like an oven - same pots and pans, except the cook time is shorter due to the fan system. You do need shallow pans. I cook biscuts on the bottom of the pan. Just flip it over. It makes yummy biscuits. Change oven recipes to shorter times than conventional ovens. Things cook faster in a convection oven.
