A 'personal' microwave--never share again

The "iWavecube" is less a cubic foot.

In our day, most dorm rooms got by with makeshift "kitchens" that consisted of a hot plate and maybe a toaster oven. But that was back in the days when space was at a premium because the stereo--and stacks of vinyl LPs--took up half the room.

Now we have "personal" microwave ovens to do the job, some of them barely bigger than a breadbox. The "iWavecube," for example, will heat up frozen pizzas like the best of 'em while occupying under a cubic foot of space and weighing just 12 pounds.

It may not be as mobile as the portable " WaveBox ," but it comes close. Either way, you can save a little money on this " Tailgating Trailer " by passing up on its optional microwave. Or, if they start making one with an LCD built into the door , you could just watch the game at home.
