Microwave oven and cooking
Not the waves, but the cooking device. I am curious how the radiation is generated, and why it stays inside the microwave (the outside doesn't get hot).

The latter part of your question was discussed here:
The radiation is generated by something called a magnetron. This produces high frequency EM waves.

Thanks; just what I was looking for.
