Product Overview

If you've ever wondered how a microwave heats food, why aluminum foil is shiny on one side and dull on the other, or whether it is better to use cold or hot water in a garbage disposal, now you'll have your answers.

You'll also learn interesting side stories, such as how the waffle iron played a role in the success of Nike, and why socialite Josephine Cochran really invented the dishwasher in 1885. And finally, if your stovetop skills are still in development, you'll be given information on the invention and inner workings of the smoke detector and handheld fire extinguisher.
