Microwave Oven from 1981 – You have cooked a long way baby

Check out the price tag for this beauty.


I can’t remember when we had our first Microwave. I think it was early 80s. I do remember how amazed I was to see how fast food cooked in this thing!  No more heating up SpaghettiOs on the stove! I can now warm them up in the microwave in less than 3 minutes.

Wiki had some interesting numbers on Microwaves. In 1986 only 25% off the households had microwave ovens. That was up only 1% from 1971.  By 1997, 90% of households had one. In France, only 40% of households had Microwaves in 1994.
