Rugged microwave designed for outdoorsDoes it spell the end for the camp fire?
16 July 2007
The good old fashioned camp fire could become a thing of the past after an American company produced a portable microwave oven designed for rugged environments.
The weather resistant WaveBox is described as the smallest microwave in the world - 20 per cent smaller and 40 per cent lighter than other models.
It comes in a variety of colours and can be powered from the mains, or through a car battery or car cigarette lighter outlet.
Fishing and camping
The manufacturers say it’s ‘built for daily use in tough environments such as construction, boating, fishing and camping.’
It has a no-slip rubber base for stability, heavy-duty casing and a luggage-type handle to make it easy to carry.
The WaveBox comes with two extra-long DC cords to either clip it to the vehicle battery or the cigarette lighter outlet.
However, it’s currently only on sale in the US.
