Introduction of the first microwave oven for home use

On October 25, 1955 Tappan Company for the first time introduced a domestic microwave oven weighing about 60 kg.

Actually the first microwave oven was developed by the American scientist Percy Spencer in 1947 and initially it was supplied exclusively for the needs of the American army. The very first device was completely different from what we have now at home. The weight of the oven was 340 kilograms and it was used to defrost semi-finished products. Each chef who worked with this oven had to pass special exam and training before using it.
