And we won't bother you with facts like the one that the OP has a "microwave
combination oven", not a microwave oven.

But in the present case it's you who doesn't comprehend the facts...
that it's a combo has not a whit of bearing... the oven cooks with
microwaves, the conventional radiant energy portion functions to
brown. When the radiant energy produced by the conventional portion
is blocked by over crowding the microwaves will overcook the food way
before it browns. With those combo ovens it's far more important not
to over crowd than with single function ovens.

You're not bothering me. I read it the first time. Still doesn't mean
you can place any dam thing in it safely.
