The Appliance From The 1940’s Is A Home Microwave
This appliance above is a 1940's version of a home microwave. A scary microwave I might add.
This was obviously years before the launch of the mainstream microwave we all know and use today(pictured left). Notice the open-air configuration. I would not stand anywhere near that thing! I am extremely thankful for the advances in technology that have led to a safer, less life threatening model for my kitchen. Not to mention the fact that this microwave would not fit in my kitchen at all. You have got to start somewhere I guess. I hope nobody was injured or got ill from testing this giant gadget out for years.
