Dawn of the Microwave
Microwave cooking was discovered as an accidental by-product of radar research. Its first commercial use was for hot dog vending machines.
Microwave Cooking Comes Home
The first “RadarRange” was the size of a household refrigerator and retailed for $5000 in 1947. By 1967, the price had dropped to $495.
Enter Induction Cooking
Tech made another big contribution to the kitchen with induction cooking. An induction cooker transfers electrical energy (by induction, hence the name) from a coil of wire into a ferromagnetic metal vessel.
Thermador Induction Cooktop
Thermador has an induction cooktop that can accommodate up to four pots – and you get to decide where they go, while the rest of the surface remains cool. It retails for just under $5000.
Things to Remember About Induction Cooking
There are a couple things to remember if you choose to go the induction route: Induction surfaces heat up almost instantly, so you may need to re-plan your cooking patterns around that. Also, glass or porcelain pots won’t work, but anything you can stick a magnet to will.

You ever looked up into the night sky and really wondered about where we fit into it all? Asked yourself what’s out there? How far does it go? What do the other planets and stars look like close up? What exactly do the space stations look like? How far does the universe extend? Where did we come from and where are we going?
I bet you have. We all have. Now you can stop wondering and get out there and see everything first-hand. Well – almost. See exactly how our planet fits into the solar system and the galaxy. Take the trip, marvel at the universe. Get lost in space, fly anywhere in virtual space, at any speed, in any direction and at any time in history.
