National Microwave Oven Day 2022: Why do we celebrate National Microwave Oven Day?
National Microwave Oven Day 2022: National Microwave Oven Day is observed on December 6th in most developed nations. The day celebrates a kitchen appliance that revolutionized how we use it. In contrast to conventional cooking methods that use bowls and utensils along with fire, microwave ovens use electromagnetic radiation to cook food by producing heat.
Why do we celebrate National Microwave Oven Day?
It's Microwave Oven Day on December 6. It is a day to honor and celebrate the invention that has made cooking and reheating food more convenient and quick for busy parents, single people, and college students. Utilizing a microwave is simple. It's easy enough for a kid to use to heat and cook food!
Percy Spencer, a self-taught American engineer, stumbled upon a method for using microwaves to safely heat food. He noticed a melting chocolate bar in his pocket while operating an active radar in 1945. The strong microwave beams produced a heating effect that was perfect for cooking. Spencer made a conscious effort to microwave-cook popcorn. He then attempted to fry an egg. The egg and the popcorn both produced striking effects. But unlike the egg, the popcorn was successful. In the face of his fellow engineer, the egg exploded! However, microwave ovens can be used to cook eggs.
