A new era for the kitchen began with the research work of the American engineer Percy Spencer on a microwave emitter – a magnetron. The engineer came to the conclusion that a certain frequency of radiation leads to intense heat generation. On December 6, 1945, Spencer received a patent for the use of microwaves for cooking. In 1949, the first microwave ovens in the United States were produced according to his patent to quickly defrost strategic food stocks. Therefore, it is on December 6 that we celebrate the birthday of the microwave oven.
