MICROWAVE: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "microwave"
 

The sign for "microwave" is very similar to signs based on the concept of "light."  The "microwave" sign basically shows the microwaves being broadcast from the sides into the food in the middle.

A cute joke sign I've seen for the sign "microwave" is to "wave" the tip of your pinkie up and down by flexing it at the smaller two knuckles.  Geddit? A "micro" wave. (Ahem.)
