Do not microwave melamine. It will absorb the radiation and heat the bowl, plate, etc. and not the food. If it gets hot enough the melamine can become unstable creating bubbles or a break down in structure. Melamine resin will not melt and does have flame retardant properties making it great for many uses except in the microwave. Why then do they use it in kitchen wears? Well its cheap and until the advent of the microwave it served its purpose.

Unless the melamine bowl says "microwave safe" it, it should not be microwaved.

No, No on wisegeek.com It explains that excessive heat will break down the melamine

Melamine dinnerware can be washed in the dishwasher. However, this type of dinnerware should not be used in the microwave.
