The electric appliance I'd like to describe is microwave oven. As one of the main inventions in the 20th century, microwave oven brings about great changes to our lives. I think it is the most useful appliance in kitchen.
Firstly,the invention of microwave oven changes our cooking habit. We needn 't suffer from the smell of smoke and oil any more. Microwave oven provides a cleaner and faster way of cooking. Besides,there is no unbearable heat in the kitchen. We needn't worry about being burnt by the flame or steam. What we need to do is just to put the dish in the magic box and start the knob.
Another advantage of microwave oven is that it offers us more healthy dishes. The food is not cooked by heat,but by microwave. The nutrition in vegetables or meat can be maintained to the greatest extent. What's more, the appearance and color of dishes is not destroyed either. Since I got a microwave oven in the kitchen I like cooking more. It is convenient and enjoyable.
But we also should keep it in mind that technology has another side. Microwave ovens should be used cautiously or they can be dangerous. Not every utensil or food can be put into it. Once I heated a boiled egg in the microwave oven, what happened,guess? The egg exploded into pieces. Oh,it frightened me. I learned from then on that boiled eggs can't be heated in microwave ovens even if without the shell.
