Microwave Ovens Basics

Microwave Ovens

Microwave ovens were initially designed for commercial use to reduce cooking time for busy people. Microwave ovens were first manufactured commercially in the early 1970s when microwave ovens suddenly became extremely popular in the American home. Conventional oven cooks food slowly out of the exterior in, but the microwave oven use microwaves, high-frequency radio waves, to cook food much more rapidly (often say it cooks "from the inside out").

 

Originally, microwave ovens used an extremely large dish with several compartments which contained a metallic resonator and a magnetron (a small but very powerful computer) all controlled by a main control circuit board. The metallic resonator and magnetron were covered with a thick protective material, and electrical current ran through these large dishes. A current control circuit board or microchip controlled the power supply to the microwave ovens. Initially this type of cooking equipment was incredibly expensive. It took about 1 hour to fully heat a meal which meant that most families only made one meal a day at most.

 

As the popularity of microwave ovens increased, microwave oven companies quickly moved to make better and more energy efficient appliances. The next step was to use smaller, more efficient microwave ovens to keep cooking times down. They still used the same basic design of large dishes with multiple compartments and control panels, but now the dishes used less metal and had small cooling compartments around them. These changes greatly reduced cooking times while still allowing enough flexibility to create many different meal options. The result was that many families now had the ability to make full meals in half the time it once took.

 

As demand for microwaves continued to grow, the competition began to heat up as well. The two main players in the space cooking field were CPAP and Stadol. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure and Stadol is a nebulizer and humidifier. Many of the features of microwave ovens like being able to cook at different cooking levels gave CPAP and Stadol an edge. These companies quickly began making cutthroat deals and bundled products with retailers. This type of selling strategy worked well for them, but not for the consumer.

 

As more people began looking for a simple and affordable way to heat their home, the market for microwaves became crowded. Early on, microwaves that allowed you to set the cooking level for different types of food were created. Fast forward a few years, and microwaves with various additional features were added to the market. You can now purchase a microwave that will cook just about anything you would like it to.

 

The latest addition to the market for microwaves are the spencers. Basically, these are extra attachments that are included on many microwaves. Spencers are used to increase the surface area of the food being cooked. Some microwave ovens come with turntables, which allow you to manually rotate the food inside the oven. These functions are available on some newer models, but most have the standard non-turntable controls. This is fine for the majority of people, but if you enjoy experimenting with your foods, you will likely find these spencers very handy.

 

Microwave oven specifications vary depending on the model you purchase. The most common specifications are stated in the user manual that comes with your microwave oven. Other details can be found on the product packaging or online. There are a number of different ways that you can choose your Microwave Ovens. Whether you want a compact design or a full-sized one, you will likely be able to find what you need at an affordable price.
