    The history of muffin

    Before we begin the preparation of a quick cake in the microwave HozOboz offers you a small tour into the history of the microwave. Like many other things, a microwave was invented almost by accident. Legend tells that has it that Percy Spenser, an American engineer, who conducted the experiments with the magnetron, he noticed that for some reason a piece of chocolate melted in his pocket. There is another version, which is as follows: the same Spencer noticed that placed on the connected magnetron sandwich is hot. Perhaps the reason for the invention was the scorch but spoiling the image of the device for commercial reasons was somehow inappropriate. After all, you see, the story of chocolate or a sandwich looks much better than the latter.

    Spencer received a patent for a microwave oven in 1946, and the first microwave oven was released a year later. At first, it wasn’t used for cooking, but for defrosting only. Moreover, it was used exclusively by the military, particularly in canteens and cafeterias of military hospitals. So, they did not know for sure how to make a cake or something in the microwave. Now we can hardly imagine it, but the first microwave oven was approximately  of human height and around 340 kg. Serial production of microwave ovens began in 1949. Not everyone could afford to buy such equipment because it retailed for $ 3000. It was only in 1955 that the first home microwave oven came in Japan. Initially, a new product demand has been low. However, over time, it became very popular.
