I don't understand the microwave issue either. The wife and I are thinking about trading our Safari for an OB 25, but the units in stock do not have a microwave like our Safari. Some have the combo oven but none near us.

I sent an e-mail to Wavebox and here is the reply: wow, the FDA!

Gerry,

We very much appreciate your interest in the WaveBoxTM – the worlds first and only portable microwave lunchbox!

Cooking times in AC 115v and direct to battery mode are like your home microwave. A cup of hot water takes maybe 2 minutes to get hot enough for coffee. Heating times when using DC through a 20amp power outlet are about double that.

Unfortunately, the wait for the WaveBoxTM in the United States goes on due to final pending approvals from the FDA. The final approval date is unpredictable because the FDA works on a schedule that is theirs alone. We are hopeful that we will be able to ship in the next 45 days, but we really cannot predict the FDA timing – it could be longer. Rest assured, the WaveBoxTM is a safely built, well performing product, and the FDA approvals are close to completion.

To note, we are currently selling the WaveBox in European markets, and will be in touch with all of our European customers who have been waiting shortly. All other major global markets, including Canada, will be served in the next 2-3 months.

Once we receive FDA approval, we will email you to advise that its time to order your first-off-the-production-line WaveBoxTM. At that time, you may enter your credit card information and actually pay for a WaveBoxTM. You have no obligation to do so, but we will hold your premier delivery spot in line for 30 days after we are ready to take orders. We will also announce at this time any retail locations where you may find the WaveBox.

Thank you for sticking with us – and we look forward to sending your WaveBoxTM soon.

Regards,

Bob
The WaveBox Team


Looks like we will wait a while to test one, but it sure sounds like something worth considering.

Gerry

The Tappan that came in our A/S is 17-7/16" wide x 9-5/8" high x 14-3/16" deep. It's AC only and 550 watts. Here is a link to that model. It's ok for warming stuff up but I've not been able to make microwave popcorn in it.

That's disappointing to hear since I am considering having Airstream retrofit my pantry with that microwave. Years ago we had a small low wattage combination microwave from Sears and the tip for popcorn was to put the bag on an upside down corelle plate. But I do think the wattage was 600. Though when you gotta have popcorn I could make it the old fashion way. I sure would like the convenience of quick heating with minimal clean-up from dirty pans and dishes often time, especially when there are no sewer hook-ups and we are watching the holding tank levels or winterized.

Did you see the alternative unit listed on that link of Dennis'?

Carol,
The unit is only 1/2" higher than the Tappan. The other dimensions are less than the Tappan. I'd think the extra 21% in power would make quite a difference. If it would fit, I'd opt for it.

I like the finish too. Thanks for your input. Nice to know what is what beforehand. I am sure their mod is not inexpensive.

You know, there are about 15 manufacturers making what is essentially the same sized product, makes one believe that a few years ago someone came up with a new smaller microwave transmitter and everybody jumped in to wrap a product around it. The Iwavecube above (thank you very much for this post, I plan on going to see it at one of the Sharper Image stores near here) and the Wavebox above may be the first two products of a coming avalanche of products (and falling prices) based on the new technology. In any event it's good to see that there appears to be a percieved market for yet smaller microwaves for us who need one. Thanks, Gerry

ya...and it has a couch and soft walls just like a classic. And windows that don't leak...and MORE insulation,,,,I am liking that "B" model better everytime I look at one.

I went to a Sharper Image store today to check out this Microwave and it is a fine little machine. I'd rate it very good (we plugged it in and cooked some coffee) at jobs that will fit inside it. Certainly not a 1200 watt screamer, but for a small unit it is impressive. As I recall its rated 600 watts input, 330 watts cooking. Its very light, very small, very cute, and will fill the bill for our light microwaving needs. Gerry

Can you get anything other than a cup inside? What other things might it be useful for?
