Early Microwave Oven Commercial

My family had a Radar Range way back in the 1970s. How we acquired such cutting edge technology is still beyond me, but we used that humming and hulking piece of metal way into the 1990s to heat and eat all of the lastest new type fashionable foods (mostly popcorn). Those early microwaves were not as useful as promised, but from what they show in these ads, you can see why people went gaga for them.

One thought on “Early Microwave Oven Commercial

  1. It always amazes me when I see these old microwaves with metal racks in them. I wonder if they were only for when using the “removable browning element” and had to be removed when nuking something?

    We didn’t get a microwave until the early 90s.
