The Micro wave Oven Helped Change The Family Structure..I remember first seeing what was an early microwave oven at the 1964 Worlds fair in New York.I WAS AT THE N.Y.STATE pavilion and purchased a meal most food sold at the Worlds Fair was very high and much overpriced 2018 prices in 1964… However not so at then the NY. State Pavillion.After having purchased a 50 cent meal to eat and brought it over to my table to eat however I.noticed it was ice cold.I immediately went to my manger to complain.The manager explained that you have to put in in the micro wave oven..I couldn’t believe my eyes how it heated it up..fast forward 10 years… No one ever seen or heard of such a device in 1964..
Now in 1974 micro wave ovens are wide-spread across America. the average one would have cost you at least $500, that’s one of the few things that escaped inflation..today you can buy one for anywhere from $79- $100 for a 1,000 watts. In America in the 1950’s and 1960’s and before all America ate supper or dinn regardless of race,religion , ethic or social economic group at 6 pm..The micro wave oven changed all that,no longer do most family’s eat as a unit but rather everyone takes their food out of the refrigeration and heats it up in her micro wave .Gone are the traditional family diners with exemptions of perhaps formal Holiday diners. Is this better or worse?..Whose to say but that’s the way it is today /end
