My grandma bought one of the first Amana Radar Ranges – a microwave oven about the size of a Buick. First time she tried to bake a potato in the thing, she did what she’s always done in a conventional oven, and wrapped the spud in aluminum foil. We almost had to call the fire department. The radar range had a permanent scorch mark on the inside thanks to the reflected radiation.
