More Office Treasure!

The owner’s manual for the office microwave oven has been sitting on top of it for over a year now. I’m very tempted every time I see it sitting there to file it in the round filing cabinet. While I was waiting for my coffee to finish, I thumbed through it to see exactly how much instruction is required for a microwave.

But then I stumbled across the page titled MICROWAVING PRINCIPLES and liked the drawings so much I think this manual is a keeper. I really appreciate Sharp hiring an artist to draw such an excited water molecule!

A quick blurb about RADAR and World War II was enough to entice me to read up a little more about early experiments to cook food using microwaves. I found this neat story from IEEE: A Brief History of the Microwave Oven. Enjoy!
