(a box that heats when you put food in it)
Microwaves were made by a man named Percy Spenser. One day Percy was running a test on radar waves (micro waves) and stuck his hand in his pocket. He remembered he had his candy bar in his pocket. When he pulled it out of his pocket, it had all melted. He thought for a while, then he realized that the candy bar melted because of the radar waves. Then he ran a few tests to see how effective this was. After running a few tests he thought he could mass-produce the radar waves into little boxes that you can put your food in. when you put your food in it would heat up your food To the right temperature, and when you were ready, you could take it out and eat your food all warm. He quit his job and mass-produced the item. People loved it. Later on he called it, the Microwave. Microwaves are used today to heat your food up easily.
