someone who created it, then showed it to his friends and they laughed in his face, then stole the idea and made millions off of it while he died broke and pennyless

Raytheon or one of those types. I can't remember who for sure.

MDS got part of it right. "Engineers went to work on ********'s hot new idea, developing and refining it for practical use. By late 1946, the Raytheon Company had filed a patent proposing that microwaves be used to cook food. An oven that heated food using microwave energy was then placed in a Boston restaurant for testing. At last, in 1947, the first commercial microwave oven hit the market. These primitive units where gigantic and enormously expensive, standing 5 1/2 feet tall, weighing over 750 pounds, and costing about $5000 each. The magnetron tube had to be water-cooled, so plumbing installations were also required."

I do not know, nor do I wish to know, but, the magnatron from these nifty cookers make a great weapon!

Whoever he was discovered it because he walked in front of a radar emitter with a Hersey's bar in his pocket. To confirm his observations, he used a paper bag full of unpopped corn and made the first bag of microwave popcorn. Kharn

Perry Spencer in 1946. He worked for Raytheon at the time. The candy bar & popcorn stories are true. The next thing he did was try to cook an egg in its shell. It blew up in his face. BTW, he did get rich from it, as did Raytheon. Norm

It was a very small man, I believe his name was Mr. Wave.

Raytheon, accidental discovery arising out of Radar work they were doing.

Sgt 884 was the closest to the answer than the rest of you. You guys need to find time to read more into our history. The answer to the question is...(drum roll)...Dr.Microwave who invented the device! Also, it was Dr.toilet who created the toilet. Same as the first person to design the first bathroom, good old Dr.Bathroom! AND many, many other good doctors who were named after their inventions. Damn! I'm good at this! [BD] [b]-RoadDog[/b]

You guys are all wrong. Everyone knows it was Oppenheimer. Oh, you meant for kitchen use.
