Origin[edit | edit source]

Percy Spencer was a radio engineer who worked on magnetrons for the company Raytheon. One day, he stood in front of an activate radar system and a chocolate bar in his pocket melted. He investigated further with eggs and popcorn and later became the first to make the microwave oven.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Perfectly cooks food in less than 30 seconds. Microwaving a bar of chocolate will cause the user to be trapped in the oven.
