The microwave oven, then called the Radarange, was invented by Dr. Percy Spencer after World War II based on technology developed during the war and first sold in 1947.[1] The microwave gets it's name due to the electromagnetic waves used for this device are in what's referred to as the microwave range of frequencies. The microwave works by spinning water, fat and sugar molecules to create heat from the friction of their rotation.
