We have a pretty good idea of the cutting edge technology and advanced features found in today’s best microwaves. But what does the future of the microwave look like?
The basic premise hasn’t changed much in over 50 years: they’re boxes that sit on the counter or above the stove and heat stuff up via vibrating water molecules. Is that ever going to change in the future, or is the microwave going to stay basically the same?
Well, it’s starting to look like the microwave world is due for a shakeup, and that shakeup is probably going to come in the form of semiconductor ovens heating on a new radio wave frequency. After all, we use radio waves for just about everything else these days – why not tweak them and put them to work heating our food? Several popular brands, including Miele and Midea, are trying to do just that.
