The inventor of the personal microwave is… Heinz?

Heinz Beanzawave

There are portable microwaves already on the market, but those suck up a lot of juice. Since these contraptions require a lot of power, you see them designed for cars, boats and the like. The Beanzawave changes all that and brings microwaveability to the desktop, powered only by a USB connection.

The mini-mic is only a prototype for now, but apparently Heinz and partners claim the technology is ready. Heinz says they will usher in production dependent on consumer feedback. C’mon, who wouldn’t want a low-powered microwave (that works)? Adapting it for battery use (also in the plans) would unleash the microwave and bring true portability to the market. I’ll believe it when I see it. Chances are it will turn out to be a glorified Easy Bake Oven.

***UPDATE 7/2/15***
Try this one on for size.
RoadPro 12-Volt Portable Stove, Black
Not a microwave, but highly rated and most importantly, real!


  1. I can’t wait… Is this real? Working in the stage hand audio hand industry, I find myself on the Las Vegas strip paying unreal pieces for lunch. If we had access to a microwave or something we’d bring lunches more often. Often working hours that warrant a lunch and dinner this one product could vl change the game for us Las Vegas hands. Please let me know where I can purchase.

  2. Hopefully that update above links you to the hot food you want!
