The first microwave as we know was a radio transmitter, a scientist was standing close to it and noticed that the candy bar in his pocket was melting, therefore, the first microwave probably weighed about 800 pounds. The first commercial microwave oven probably weighed about 180 lbs.

If you can remember the mid 70s, whenever a microwave oven was used in a store, the cashier would ask if anyone had a pacemaker. Hope this helped.
