microwave
A microwave oven is activated when an electric current causes a magnetron to emit a beam of microwaves. The beam is distributed throughout the unit by a rotating reflector. The microwaves agitate water molecules in the food, generating enough heat to cook it.

mi·cro·wave

(mī′krō-wāv′)
1. A high-frequency radio wave used in radio broadcasting and radar. See more at electromagnetic spectrum.
2. An oven in which food is cooked, warmed, or thawed by means of microwaves.
