1959 Microwave

"In 45 seconds, this electronic surface unit will cook eggs. One cup of water boils in two minutes!

The microwave tube that sends out cooking waves is directly below the fiberglass disk that holds the food to be cooked. The panel of switches on the wall will command the perforated hood to drop down and cover the disk. Cooking action starts only after the hood fits securely into groove around the disk, stops when the hood rises. The hood automatically goes up when the timer on the surface unit rings, stopping cooking action."
