Microwave Science And Technology

Interest in microwave processing began shortly after World War II with the introduction of the first microwave oven by the Raytheon Co. (Waltham, Mass.) a manufacturer of magnetrons for radar. The first U.S. patent granted to Raytheon Co., which claimed the novelty of microwave cooking, was illustrated with a food product moving on a conveyor belt past a microwave source (1). Many other patents followed, research was carried out on the effects of microwave energy on food materials, microwave cooking technology was developed, and eventually a consumer microwave oven sales boom occurred so that today this appliance is commonplace in most homes in the United States and a similar trend is taking place in most of the developed countries of the world. Microwave energy use in food processing is showing a similar growth trend, although at a much more modest rate.
