Crock-Pot 2 Unit Hook-Up 2 Qt, Best crock-pot for party or catering use for the money

They make keeping food hot for a party so much easier.

I bought this 2-unit hook up and love it. I love to serve food on the our kitchen island, but only have one outlet available. With the technology that the crock-pot hook up offers, i now can serve many kids of foods and keep them hot all at the same time. We love to host, so this is the perfect cooking utensil for those who have company often.

It was a gift for my daughter-in-law.

“Best crock-pot for party or catering use for the money
, We used these at Christmas. Worked perfectly. We
, Perfect for entertaining!

Wonderful for entertaining both indoor and out.

It was a christmas gift and she plans on adding one more of them for herself.

We washed and heated them before use.

The person that received this gift was very pleased. I would recommend and it will be nice when the price comes down on them a little.

I host quite a few parties and functions and up till recently i always had to reach out to my friends who own a catering business to use their chaffing dishes and crock-pots. Then last month they went out of town and i had a last minute event come up and needed to purchase a crock-pot that i could use to serve from. I needed something that day so i went online and found these at target and ran down and bought two of the 2x1qt units. The thing i fell in love with was how professional they looked and how clean they looked sitting out. Unlike many conventional crock-pots where not only would you have cords going everywhere but you also have to either change everything out into a chaffing dish or have an unsightly crock-pot sitting in the middle of your catering table or buffet line. With this kit all you have to do is plug them all together inline and run one single cord, plus they look really nice so leaving them on the table is fine. This was also a benefit as then you don’t have an open flame sitting in reach of children like you do with chaffing dishes. Since that original purchase i have now added these two to my collection and am more then likely going to pick up one more of the 2qt round units since these worked out so well. I have used them for not only keeping the food warm for periods of over 10hours but i have also cooked in the larger one and it cooked just as good as the old style crock-pots did. Almost forgot, another nice feature is that they are stackable so when you have to store them they take up much less room then the conventional style crock-pots.

M.V. Trading Shabu Shabu Hot Pot – Great for a big party!

This hot pot was delivered nicely. Ive been trying to find something like this for a while that didn’t cost so much, i called around to stores and found out that there hot pots were very expensive. When i looked at this, i was worried that it might not be as good as the restaurants that i love. I tried it when my sister came over. She and i both had our own sides that we could put anything in. It was perfect because she is a picky eater. The only thing that isnt the best is the time it takes to cook things. Otherwise this is the best purchase for a hot pot.

I lived in china for a couple years so i know my hot pot. I’d never used one with a grill before, however. It’s much better than my grocery store hot plate + pot combination i’d been using. It keeps the liquid at a good temperature throughout and i don’t have to keep covering it and waiting every time i want to cook something else. The grill is a nice feature. I’ve used it for shrimp and thoroughly greased and cleaned it before and after because of all the reviews here. It’s a good product and great to make dinner more social with new friends.

I didn’t use it yet , it looks very good. I thought it works very well. Here are the specifications for the M.V. Trading Shabu Shabu Hot Pot:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Removable cooking pots for convenient use. See through high tempered glass cover
  • First-class welding finished internal divider to provide you the benefit to enjoy hotpot with two different flavors
  • Removable pot is dishwasher safe for easy clean up
  • Variable temperature control, powerful heating unit (1400W) and with 4 liter capacity
  • Great for table top cooking
  • Anti-skid feet to keep the pot sits evenly

The pot itself was easy to set up. It heats up in both grill and pot very quickly. I never had a 2 in 1 before, so this was awesome. What i love the most is that the power cord was long enough where i didn’t need an extension cord to plug in when eating with the family.

I love doing shabu shabu/ chines hot pot at my ski cabin with family and friends. Had been using an electric fondue, but i wanted the real thing. They are not easy to find, and this was the best i could do. I like the duel chambers because i could make one side extreme spice on one side and a more mild, or use miso for a change. It is just hot enough on high, but barely. It would be good if it could put out a few more btu’s. Over all, the best i could find, and it is good. I would just prefer a level higher quality and sturdiness. Williams sonoma should offer a higher quality one.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Thai style Korean BBQ – Jao Hon Kowlee
  • Shabu Shabu cooking
  • Great hot pot

I’ve held several hot pot parties now and this works as well as any restaurant piece. I’m thoroughly pleased with my purchase.

I don’t write reviews often. After burning my finger trying to make this pot work, i have to give it a bad review. Every time when we use it, it stops in the middle of dinner. There seems a connection problem. We have to move the end of cable to make the power light on. It’s very frustrating and annoying. It’s the worst thing i ever brought from amazon.

Apart from having eaten hot pot in china, using a charcoal-heated pot, this product works wonderfully well. I heated the broth to boiling before adding it to the pre-order hot pot, and the liquid stayed at the perfect simmer throughout the entire meal. The grill worked well, although previous posts are correct- the grill is difficult to clean; i did spray the grill with pam grilling spray beforehand. I enjoyed using this hot pot and would definitely recommend it.

I bought this as a gift, but am buying one for myself.

I loved my daughter’s hot pot so ordered one like it. Needed two for a party we were having and hadn’t used mine yet. It didn’t work so i have to return it. If the seller credits my account, i will buy another one because when they work they are great.

It is very useful for whole family, during the winter,spring and full, no more cooking, good for your health. Package send too fast, good quality.

This shabu shabu hot pot makes for great family dinners and conversations with friends. Everyone loves sharing the hot pot, discovering floating delicacies. The only thing i regret with the purchase is not to have invested in the 2 compartment for the broth. With a single compartment we can only have one broth rather than the two we usually get at our local asian restaurant. The two compartment version allow for a mild and a spicy broth instead of the average dull mix. Once the food is prepared, there isn’t much to do with the hot pot. Just plug it in, adjust the thermostat and wait a few minutes. Usually we set it up on high until it boils, then reduce quite a bit just to keep it warm. With a full load of broth, it takes about 12 minutes to boil before you can start enjoying your delicious meal. Cleaning is very easy as the top comes off.

My wife is chinese, and missed the hot pot of her homeland, so i bought this. She is happy, and if it meets her approval, i know it’s good. It works well, and the food is delicious.

The first time we used it it had a slight smell from the heat elements, however that pasted in a very short time. It’s a whole lot of fun to throw a party. Its the rite size for 4-8 people to share.

Love this thing for great shabu.

I love that it can serve a big party and it has an electric heater. I am not a big fan of the small cord. I have to pull out an extension cord to use it.

I have only used it once so far but it worked great. Heated quickly and wasn’t that bad cleaning up.

I can’t say enough about this shabu shabu hot pot. It heats up fast and maintains whatever your chosen temperature. I’ve had zero problems and i’ve cranked up the heat consistently , i thought by now i would have broken it but it keeps going.

Easy to use and clean, reliable.

This is the second pot i bought from mv trading. I lived in thailand for a few years and one of my favorite dinners was yao hon kowlee bbq. In thailand, real fire (charcoal pot is used) and the bbq/soup pot, which aluminum with slits cut into it that allows for cooking the meat and at the same time allowing the fats and caramelized juices to flow into the soup, sits above the glowing coals. As the dinner progresses, the soup (recipe to follow) gets tastier. Having a clay pot that weights 20 lbs filled with 3-5 lbs of burning coals limited this dinner to an out door affair. We live where it gets over 100 f in the summer and snows in the winter so we could not enjoy this as often as we would like (its not fun sitting around 3-5 lbs of burning coals when its +100f). I searched the net periodically for something that would allow my family to grill meats and have the drippings to flavor a base soup and this was the closest i could find. This works great if you have the correct utensils and enjoy a social dinner and are not in a hurry. Its romantic if just you and your spouse/significant other. But also fun for the kids (we have 5 thus the need for 2).

Twinbird Sake Warmer Tw 4418b Osake Kan Portable Machine : I’m felling in love with this product

Great alternative to the microwave, much healthier. It warms up the sake very fast and keeps it warm for a long time. Everyone that drinks hot sake should have one.

Sake Warmer Twinbird Tw 4418b Osake Kan Portable Machine

  • Sake Warmer

I love sake – especially when we go out for japanese food or sushi. . But i have always wanted to have the same experience at home but not have to use my microwave to get it. . The twinbird sake warmer answers all that and more. All the instructions and the things on the warmer itself are all in japanese. However, the only thing you need to know, is the on/off button on the side, off, the light is off, on, the light is on. The slider bar on the front goes from 0 degrees celsius to 60 degrees celsius. The markings are as follows – position 1 – no heat – position 2 – 37 celsius = 98. 6 fahrenheit – position 3 – 44 celsius = 111. 2 fahrenheit – position 4 – 51 celsius = 123. 8 fahrenheit – position 5 – 60 celsius = 140 fahrenheit. I tend to like between 4 and 5 but everyone has their own taste and temp levels for sake – and the twinbird can handle it all.

Only used it a couple of times so far but i really like it.

As most reviews have said, the instructions are in japanesse but i think that adds to the sake enjoying experience. Plus you do not really need the instructions as anyone with any common sense can figure out you turn the switch to ‘on’ and then slide the dial to your desired level of heat. I always slide it to the hottest temperature to get it going then knock it down one to keep a low simmer. The cord wraps in a space under the base for easy storage and the kettle it self seems to be somewhat nonstick so a quick rinse out is all you need afterward. Again, this was a great purchase and i’ve used it at least once a week ever since i received it.

Sake Warmer Twinbird Tw 4418b Osake Kan Portable Machine : Perfect warmer, gets to perfect temperature quickly, works reliably, a great investment for the war saki enthusiast.

Excellent product, dose just what it suppose to.

The only problem is there is no indicator that the sake has reached the desired temperature, so you have to keep tasting the sake to see if it’s actually warm enough for you.

I got it for my boyfriend’s birthday and he loves it. All directions are in japanese, but the company i ordered from provided a translated copy of the essential parts of the manual.

Unfortunately, all directions in japaese. Fortunately, easy to figure out through the pictures.

I’m felling in love with this product. It works great for me who love hot sake. I can enjoy and sip at home comfortably, without having to be in a restaurant.

I have had it for about 2 weeks, and it works wonderfully. I work at a japanese steakhouse, where we serve hot sake, and the sake is comparable to the sake we have there from their fancy machine. All the instructions are in japanese, but the pictures are self-explanatory and there is a chart that shows you what each japanese symbol is in degrees celsius in the manual, so don’t worry. This is the first time i’ve ever gotten a sake warmer and i am very happy with itby the way, this sake warmer will warm almost a half of a bottle that is 750ml, so you will have plenty of sake for about 4 people to enjoy plenty of, and it only takes about 10-15 minutes for it to heat back up (also depends on the temperature of sake before warming, for example refrigerated sake will obviously take a little longer, but still not horribly long.

This warmer is amazing, it’s very easy to use even though the whole thing was written in japanese. It warms sake pretty fast, and the size of the pot is pretty big. It’s a must get for hot sake lovers. There is not any problem with the votage in us. The seller is really helpful and willing to work with you.

Instructions not in english. I only need to know if the lid can be kept on while its heating or not.

I can’t read any of the instructions or anything on the warmer it’s self but it is so intuitive that i fill the pot set the heat by color code turn it on and in a few minutes i have warm sake.

I gave the product 5 stars because it works exactly as it is advertised. The instructions are in japanese, but self explanatory and includes pictures for step by step. Only complaint was on the shipping, i ordered it on jan. 29th and paid extra on shipping. It was supposed to arrive on feb. 5th at the latest, but didn’t show up until the 7th. I will cut some slack on the shipping though, since it was shipped directly from japan. Overall, product is great and just save your money on the shipping.

I love this little sake warmer. It heats fast and keeps a very even temperature for as long as needed. It holds a good amount and is designed in such a way that the sake will not boil off over time. Easy to handle and to pour from. Can pour with the lid in place. Only reason i give it 4 stars instead of five is the instruction booklet only comes in japanese, not english. But, it’s fairly self explanatory. Anyone who is a sake lover needs this little appliance.

Brita Wave Pitcher – Perfect size, fits well in my fridge

Not bad if your water is not bad.

This wave pitcher arrived to replace our 4 year old brita grand, which had warping from a dishwasher. The wave is similar in size and volume. A few key improvements were made, mostly in the top portion:1. A ‘funnel’ insert has been included in the wave’s design. With the grand, water in the top compartment could knock the lid off. The funnel also causes the top compartment to be nearly watertight. With the grand, unfiltered water in the top would mix with filtered water if you poured before the water had finished filtering. Now, you don’t have to stand and wait for water to completely filter before pouring.

Started using this filter and tap resistant cover helps keep filter particles from floating up (that used to give impression that water is really filthy). Found it very nice looking and it holds a good amount of water, esp with guests. I am guessing the filter replacement technology counts the number of times lid was opened to indicate replacement time. I sometimes dont fill up full filter-so replacement sign can be a little early. But pretty nice looking filter compared to white and purple ones.

Save money and the environment.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fixes most of the glitches from the Brita Grand, but may cost more to operate in the long run.
  • Found it very nice looking and it holds a good amount of water
  • Perfect size, fits well in my fridge

We bought this as a christmas gift for my daughter – she loves it and says that she is drinking more water than ever.

Love the color combinations.

Looks really slick and great on the countertop. The water tastes good as well.

I hate the taste of tap water and didn’t want to keep purchasing bottles water. The water tastes great and this pitcher pours well. I am happy with my purchase.

I hate to have to write this review with only 4 stars, because the pitcher is great. My only problem is that the counter in the lid doesn’t work, at least, it doesn’t count. You can set it and it flashes (so it’s not a battery problem), but it doesn’t flash when the pitcher is tilted to pour. I assume there is a pendulum type switch or a rolling ball that may be stuck, i don’t think they would use a mercury type switch in a water pitcher. I’ve taken the lid off to see if i tipped it over further it would register, but that didn’t work. Bad as i hate to, i guess i’ll have to return it. Wish i could keep the pitcher and they’d just send me a new lid. The pitcher filters much faster than our old one (i guess due to the new filter design) and the design of the pitcher itself is much improved.

Better than i was expecting. . Pours great and you don’t get water that is waiting to be filtered and it’s attractive.

I like the ‘funnel’ design in top and the handle placement makes it more balanced and easier to lift than previous models.

I had been happy with my old brita until it cracked. This new one is so wonderful because you know exactly how much water to put in it and it fits so perfectly in the fridge door with its new slim design. I love fresh brita water, it is so refreshing.

Perfect size, fits well in my fridge, gives a better taste to the water, now i enjoy a cold drink of water.

NuWave 20201 Analog-Controlled Infrared Tabletop Oven : Great kitchen helper!

This works well and does cook food as well as it says. I used it a lot when i first got it but i found that i grew tired of the clean up afterwards. It just got easier to fall back on my traditional methods of cooking rather than go through the bother. I still use it now and then as it really does cook things well, especially whole chicken, but not as a daily means of preparing my meals.

Recommend this product to anyone looking to make great meals without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. As with any appliance you discover how it best suites your needs as you cook different dishes using the guide. Once you master the times and cooking levels for your needs it is a wonderful addition to your kitchen. Food comes out moist and tender.

These convection ovens really work well. Got the analog type (not computer controls) simply because it is easy to use. It would of been nice if there was an on/off control instead of using the timer for this function, if there was i would of rated this oven a 5.

The nuwave with the manual timer and manual heat temperature works fine. We got this as a present 4 years ago. After shuffling it around the counter and finding the infomercial on 14 channels all at once, we decided to use it and either keep it or throw it away. To our surprise, it works great. The neat part is that tougher sirloin steaks cook tender and juicy, more like a filet. One use we found wonderful was bacon. Bacon is such a mess to cook anywhere else. We tried to cook bacon in the microwave but grease is always an issue so we end up using 30 paper towels and that is yuk. In the nuwave, 6-8 slices are crisp and ready in 11-13 minutes without supervision while you cook eggs or pancakes.

If the dome should crack over time you can order a new one at a fair price from nuwave. Com (until they offer it on amazon) to avoid burning yourself, just tilt the dome so the heat escapes away from you when you open it. I didn’t buy the digital since this model has a simple timer dial. So far only have used it once since i just bought it a few days ago. Fixed fresh chicken wings and they were wonderful. I did 11 minutes per side on level 10. No problem with getting burned at all. Do line the pan with foil for easy clean up. You can use any pans that work in a normal oven with the nuwave. Just ordered the secura turbo oven 4 piece accessory set to go with this little oven.

Does not live up to tv hype. Great for frozen steaks and other items that fit on rack. The instructions are really vague aa to how to cook several items together. Tried several combinations as suggested and wound up with great cooked meat and ruined vegetables. The analog works as advertised and was cheaper. The cooking instructions (besides being hard to read and half in spanish) are vague as to multiple items. This is not a “plug ‘n play” item. Must study every item you place in oven to wind up cooked at same time. Wife went back to crock pot & regular oven and i continue to use for last minute craving like frozen steaks and burgers.

I purchased this for my adult son and he loves it; he is amazed with what it will do; not only cooking meats, etc. . But just about anything else. He has said he wants to get me one now.

I bought the oven but not via amazon. Used it for two weeks so far, excellent clean up is my first positive as i detest dish washing pots and pans. I’ve cooked steak-too long, chicken flat out-wonderful, chicken pieces-great, pillsbury biscuits-yum, for veggies i use my fiestaware dishes. I say trust it because i tended to overcook items at first not believing they were really done. I’ve learned to trust the timer for the stated cook times-i have a manual version. I have thrown away many of my pans which were cluttering my kitchen-no longer need them. My microwave is about to hit the trash too; should it conk out after a year as warranted i’ll get a digital next purchase. I like this oven a lot-give it a try.

It does just what the commerical said, it is great. The fat falls to the bottom, it is far better then my foreman grill.

The product arrived in great shape. It performed exactly as advertised. It cooks items quickly and the food tastes great. I have not tried multiple items yet, but plan to soon. My wife and i are retired and it fits our needs perfectly.

I’ve had this product for about 4 years and it still works like new. I use it during the summer alot to avoid heating up the house. I have never had problems with the plastic dome cracking because i don’t use that wire gizmo to lean it on. I would give this 5 stars except i know nu-wave knows that’s what is causing the cracking in the plastic and they don’t say anything to sell more of them. Just set your dome on the counter on a dish towel and throw the gizmo out.

I loved using this in the summertime – really keeps the heat out of the kitchen. It works great for cooking fish, chicken, etc. The only problem was after about 15 months it stopped working normally. Now, after about 10 minutes of operation, it shuts off. There’s something wrong with a limit inside the cooking apparatus but it is not user serviceable. I’d buy another one but you know how it goes – once bitten, twice shy. Got more than the 100 bucks of use out of it in that year though. If you have a family, even better.

I decided to wait a year before i wrote this review. I love the nu wave and i can not see my self not having it in my kitchen. Also, a year later, it still works the same as the day i brought it.

I just love it because you can cook almost anything with it since i had my nu-wave i’ve loved very minute of it.

I have had this model since november 2009 and i use it nearly every day. I tried going by the cooking chart and overcooked a pork roast so i adjusted the cooking time and the next time it was cooked to perfection. I have cooked steak, chicken pieces, whole chicken, pork chops, roast pork, bacon, beef roast, and meatloaf, all of which turned out well. A few days ago i finally cooked from frozen and tried a frozen beef roast that turned out great. Shortly after purchasing mine i started seeing the advertisements for the nuwave oven pro and wished that i had waited to get that one. I know that soon i will invest in the pro and pass this one to another.

Love this product, use everyday, clean everyday but have not had for less than a year and container is wearing out already, scratches but it still works just turns ugly in appearance–.

I recommend this oven for healthy eating. Ease of cleaning and fast cooking of food.

Omg the best product i have purchased, i very rarely cook but now i love cooking it is so easy and convenience i recom it to everyone, i willget several for christmas presents this year.

The oven works pretty well and i like it. There have been just a few things that wouldn’t fit in it, but that’s the only problem i’ve had so far. I’ve put things in there both fresh and frozen and it works great. I would recommend this product.

Everything they said about the oven is true. It cooks everything in about half the time of a regular oven, no heat is generated in the kitchen like a regular oven, and everything comes out delicious and juicy. I highly recommend this product.

We use our nuwave every day. I prefer the digital timer but other than that its great.

My dad bought me this oven for christmas. When i was visiting my parents’ house, he and i made several dishes that came out really, really well in the nuwave oven. One night we made breaded chicken cutlets for sandwiches, and another time we made yellow cake from a mix. The chicken retained its lovely juices and was absolutely succulent. The cake was more moist and delicious than any cake i’ve ever made in my regular convection oven. Tonight, my husband and i decided to use our nuwave oven to make our usual friday night pizza. I used refrigerated pizza dough, and followed the instructions in the booklet to a t. The instructions said that i should let the pizza cook crust-side up on hi until the crust was light brown. We noticed that the middle of the pizza was browning really quickly, so we turned the pizza over using the pizza flipper. Unfortunately, the outside edges of the crust were not totally cooked, so the flipper got stuck and the pizza got totally messy.

George Foreman RC0995P 20-Cup Smart Kitchen Multicooker – Dormitory Essential

Anything that you can make in a wok or pot on a stove can be made in this. It heats up evenly and the handle stay cool. So far i’ve made:- eggs- french toast- pasta- matzo ball soupi have not tried the steaming or rice cooking function yet but i assume it works fine. The only downside is that you can’t remove the pot 1 handed. You have to turn it off adapter, unplug adapter from the wall, remove adapter from base of pot and then unclip the base to free the pot so you can pour out water when making pasta. It’s a lot of steps, but only takes 20 seconds. Overall, i highly recommend this product. If i had the space i would purchase a second one of these.

Friends had suggested this steamer and had high accolades of its performance. We love combining cut up potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli with the addition of a little salt.

It looks nice, it has a quality feel, and you think you could do a lot with it. Now if only they included an instruction manual with some recipesthis has to be the most frustrating thing i’ve ever gotten, because since it’s an unusual product, you have to figure out how to use it. The manual, if that’s what they call the instruction sheet, is useless. There isn’t anything on their website i’ve found that’s at all helpful. An appliance that looks like it’s got possibilities, and you can’t figure out how to use it.

So i received this in and like others, wasnt sure exactly what it was entirely. After washing the parts i decided to give it a go. Its basically like a mini stove top. You can cook in multiples of ways – but its just explained quite right in the owners manual. Non stick coating is a plus on the inside, and i like the temperature control settings. The heat comes quite quickly, and is uniform to the entire pot. The pot isdeep and holds much more food than you think it would. Chili, stew, casseroles etc. While i wouldnt depend on this as my sole cooking source, would be good to have camping or in a college dorm or even tail gating.

I’ve owned several george foreman grills over the years, so i was thrilled that i had the chance to test out the smart kitchen multicooker. My regular workhorse black & decker hs1000 handy steamer with flavor scenter screen was getting on in years, and was limited to steaming. However, the george foreman multicooker has a 5-quart capacity, and you can sear directly in the pan, then add your other ingredients to make stews, sauces, stir-fry, etc. Like the george foreman grills, the nonstick coating allows for less oil or butter in cooking, cutting down on fat. There’s also an adjustable steam vent on the lid. You can cook two things at once; for example, you can cook rice in the main pot while putting shrimp, fish, veggies, etc in the steamer basket above the rice, not only saving time but cutting down on dishes as well. As other reviewers have mentioned, don’t count on the included ‘instruction’ manual for much guidance. In fact, if you relied on the manual alone, you probably wouldn’t have much of a feel for the versatility of the product. It’s a great help to watch the promo video on the official george foreman website (see my post below for the url). One thing i would have liked to have seen was a comprehensive list of steaming times for various ingredients similar to the manual from my old black and decker steamer (it included separate guides for meat, fish, veggies, frozen vs.

I got this for my son away at college. He likes to cook, and has used it constantly since september. He is very happy with this kitchen appliance.

  • Use it everyday
  • Great little crab cooker
  • Good for cooking stews & soups but not for rice steaming

Not enough instructions came with the multi cooker to make it useful. Some recipes need to be included with the cooker. Until that happens, i would not recommend it to anyone.

This product is what i expected it to be. Does a good job with soups, stews, etc. Is an excellent fit to use between the stove, and the slow cooker. I know the short cord is for safety, just wish it was maybe three inches longer.

George foreman doesn’t just make grills anymore. Introducing the smart kitchen multicooker a 26 cup ( 5 quart ) steam cooker. This is a wonderful steamer that allows you to cook a variety of healthy dishes, everything from rice and fish to beef stroganoff. It’s got a great non-stick coating that allows you to cook without butter or oil and cut out the extra calories. Plus the one touch digital controls allow you to cook rice and stews with the greatest of ease and accuracy. One of my favorite features is the kitchen-to-table removable pan which makes it easy to cook and serve from the same dish. Not to mention the accessories are dishwasher-safe and make cleanup a snap. Overall this is another superb george foreman invention and i highly recommend adding it to your kitchen.

I love this product and use it 5 days a week it’s a skillet, crockpot , veggie steamer and rice cooker all in one. My only complaint was that it didn’t come with any directions or cookbook. It took some time to figure out how to use it. There was no information online to help.

I live alone, and have a very small kitchen. So small, that when my stove died, instead of replacing it, i bought small electric appliance substitutes. One thing i did not have was a medium-sized electric pot that could handle stews, pasta, and could could even slow cook if desired. So i ordered george foreman’s smart kitchen multicooker to round out my perfect set of go-to kitchen appliances. Cooks great and looks great as well. As an added bonus, it actually arrived two days before the projected delivery date.

Got it for son who is in college.

The non-stick coating: i just got off the phone with a gorege foreman representative. I found their 1-800-237-9786 number on their website. I really needed to know about the non-stick coating they were using. I was told that there is no teflon being used in this product, or in any of the products they make now. Said that they themselves and ‘probably all’ companies quit using the toxic non-stick chemicals that leach out during cooking just within the last 18 months or so. This change happened as a result of the documented findings that teflon was in fact not safe. I was also assured that you can braise at 500 degrees without any concern of being poisoned by the non-stick surface. (a side note: the caution i would have is to be sure what kind of oils you are using at those high temperatures, if any, because it is a fact that many of the oils are toxic at high temperatures. A separate web study would be helpful to know which oils can be safely heated and to what temperatures before they become toxic for the safety of your health. )the manual: i was at wal mart yesterday looking at the manual for this george foreman product. She read her manual to me which was quite different fromt the one in the box at the store.

I bought this on sale to use primarily as a steamer, and it works wonderfully. The two drawbacks (hence the missing star) worth noting are:1) the manual is pitiful and does not include any kind of chart for steaming times; and2) the timer it has (awesome idea) does not make any sound at all to let you know your veggies are done so you can remove them to prevent overcooking, although the unit does shut off. Thankfully, i had a steamer chart that came with my (much smaller) black & decker rice cooker, but had to experiment get the right time since mr. Foreman is considerably faster than mr. Decker :o)neither issue would prevent me from purchasing this item – definitely still worth it.

I love this kitchen appliance. Like many others i wish there were more recipes out there for using it. I downloaded the ones online from the company website but still look for others to add to my collection. I like that i can sear my meats in the same pot before turning the multi-cooker over to the slow cooker option. I like that i can cook my delicious homemade mac n cheese recipe in the pot without heating my oven in the summer heat of nc. This is one of best kitchen aids i have purchase in recent years. I just have to learn to adapt my recipes to using this awesome all=in=one machine.

I was confused about what this cooker was until i actually cooked in it. Because nothing i read about it made it clear what its kitchen niche was supposed to be. Well yeah, but not entirely. In fact it does a lot of things and does them pretty well. One thing it doesn’t do well, though, is explain itself. The manual is less than useless. It’s careful to tell you to wash all the cooking parts before using, but never is clear on what is machine washable and what isn’t. (i just assumed everything but the pot itself was okay for the dish washer. ) it also says ‘to reduce the risk of electric shock, cook only in removable pan provided. Did they think i was going to put the lid on my stove and try to cook in it?.Okay, never mind the manual.

We use this to cook crab on our boat.

Extra-large capacity 20-cup / 5-quart multicooker lets you make a variety of one-pot meals, stews, sauces and more, with George Tough nonstick coating so you can cook oil-free

I have become a big fan of george foreman products and so far, they have been reliable, easy to use and if anything, a great investment in the kitchen and have not been disappointed with one yet. The latest george foreman product to have in our kitchen is the ‘smart kitchen multicooker’ in which one can make their stew, cook rice and literally cook anything in it. But for me, i like to experiment with a variety of dishes that i have picked up in other countries and because of how compact this product is, it has definitely been put to good use for meals in our home. Installationinstallation is quite easy. You have a cooking base, removable pan, steaming basket, tempered glass lid and you have an intelli-probe digital controls which plugs right into the cooking base and you can hook up to your outlet. Ease of use:this cooker is so easy to use. First off, there is a cooking line etched on the non-stick pan. Just don’t go over it and you’re fine. It’s kind of hard to read though but if you have cooked before and know not to overfill your pan, then you can figure it out. Otherwise, if you are adding liquids, use a measuring cup to be safe.

This is great for everything i brown meat and slow cook in it and something i wasn’t sure it would do is deep fry but it does that well too.

This smart kitchen has come in so handy and is really easy to use, i love all the functions it does.

Because what this basically is, is a glorified crock pot that gets hot enough to sear food. I’m not sure what i was expecting, but i thought there might be a bit more going on than there is. You can set the temperature from super hot to fairly low, but i’m not getting the point of doing so. If i want to cook something low and slow, i’ll use a crock pot (which costs far less than this unit) or a dutch oven. If i need a sear, i’ll use a frying pan. And if i need to make rice, i’ll do it in a pot. The capacity also isn’t humongous: i’ve got a crock pot that’s larger, and a dutch oven the same size. And as for the ‘intelliprobe controls,’ well, i don’t get that either. It’s not really monitoring the temperature of meats that are cooking though i suppose it may monitor the overall interior temp.

Love the fact that i can cook two things at one time. Had to figure out how to use it.

I am so happy that i purchased this, it’s perfect for all my steamer needs. I actually wanted something that would keep tamales warm for get togethers and i used it for a super bowl party, i was able to keep 8 tamales in the basket without burning them. I would just add more in the basket as they were being eaten. I have used it for steaming veggies and potatoes to, it proved to be fast and easy and the vegetables had a great taste. This was a great investment and the price was fantastic.

Intelli-Probe digital controls offer one-touch rice-specific settings for easy programming, plus an exclusive 500-Degree sear function that’s the only of its kind in the market

This is the second one of these i purchased. I have one for myself and wanted this one for a special friend. She likes it as much as i do.

The george foreman multi-cooker is the best electric multicooker i’ve ever owned. I’ve been using it quite a bit, and have gotten fantastic results each time. The cooker does stir fry very well. It also browns hamburger super fast. We even used it to make hashbrowns, which turned out perfectly and didn’t stick at all. The george foreman multicooker also turned out a fabulous pot roast in about half the time. The cooker heats up quickly and cooks consistently. The non-stick surface is easy to clean. Foods can be browned using very little oil. The only complaint i have about the cooker, and it is a very small complaint, is that it must be hand-washed.

Apparently it’s not made for a rice cooker, i’ve tried several times but it doesn’t cook the rice well, but it makes soups and stews like a pro, and by setting it the lowest heat setting it keeps my soup or stew warm all day without burning to the bottom.

I have had this multi-cooker for three months. Since it did not come with a manual and recipes, i have been a little perplexed at times. It is an attractive appliance and cleans up like a dream. What amazes me is that it has such a wide temperature range, it can even sear meat. I made beef stew in the multi-cooker and seared the meat, but apparently cut the meat in too small pieces and it over-cooked it very quickly. I was pleased to be able to thicken the stew, something that is almost impossible to do in a crockpot because of the low temperatures. Holding the stew on warm, however, seemed to overcook it. This is a very hot cookermy attempt with stir fry was quite successful and we will definitely use it for this again. As with all recipes it will take a little tweeking to get it just the way we like it. Our absolute favorite was chicken & dumplings.

Many multipurpose devices do not perform any particular task very well: the proverbial jack-of-all-trades, master of none. This interesting cooker is different. It appears to work as well as single task devices for a number of functions. First, this is a rice cooker. After making multiple pots of rice, i have to say it works quite well. It is a step down from our zojirushi but a definite step up from a few other rice cookers my wife and i have owned. Congee, in particular, turns out very good. I put in leftover turkey bones, threw in rice, water, and some ginger as described in joy of cooking. It also does very well as a steamer.

Only drawback is there are not any instructions on how to use the timer feature but it works great.

I absolutely love this thing — i use it everyday for a variety of meals — it is so versatile. The only thing which keeps it from getting 5 stars is it really isn’t non-stick — and as some others have noted the non-stick surface does flake off over time — i have only used plastic implements with this item so its not user error causing the surface to fail. In spite of this, i will probably order another one, once this one dies.

Removable stainless steel steaming basket plus tempered glass lid with adjustable steam vent let you steam vegetables and fish as you cook rice for healthy meals in minutes

It took us some time to get used to how long to cook rice with this unit without burning it. It would have been nice to have a recipe cookbook included (not just the pdf o the website) – but they’re usually well below $10 at a local borders / barnes&noble. All in all, a good addition to the kitchen. Cleaning is easy and this gives us extra incentive to use it in various rice / meat / vegetable combinations.

Presto Big Kettle : Recommended

Arrived with box beat up and dent in side of fryer that prevented lid from staying in place.

This is a little bigger than the ones i have purchased in the past. Big advantage – it goes up to 400 degrees.

  • Presto Big Kettle, Black

The basket was smaller than i expected, but overall, i am satisfied.

I am delighted with this product. It is by far the easiest to clean fryer ever. After the oil cools you can easily pour it out and filter with cheesecloth for reuse. Then it takes only minutes to wash out the inside with warm dish water. The outside wipes clean in seconds. Gone are the days of fryers with 10 parts to clean and filters to replace. The basket came completely clean in the dishwasher. This presto big kettle is fantastic. The control is magnetic and easy to wipe clean but also adds that element of safety so kids and critters can’t pull it off the counter by the cord. It can fit easily under the kitchen stove vent and the max fill line is low enough that the oil is not splattering all over the place.

I have the smaller one and it is great but needed a bigger one to fix french fries etc for 6. Presto makes better friers than the expensive professional ones. I have had several expensive ones. They just dont get hot enough.

Presto Big Kettle, Black :

This multi cooker is now the biggest one that presto makesit features a large 8-qt capacity pot that can accommodate just about anything that you want to cook in it. It is good for making large family one-pot meals. It is 5 appliances in onei got it mainly for deep frying. Some have said that the basket is too short. It accommodates considerable amounts of food to fry without crowding the basket. I’ve also used it as a slow cooker for the most delicious pot roast everbut i love it truly large capacity. It is 60% bigger that the average multi cooker.It is a rice cooker, a slow cooker, a dutch oven, an 8-qt stock pot, a boiler & a steamer. I’m so glad that i bought it.

This is a great multi cooker to have, it gets plenty hot and holds the heat. My only complaint is, i can’t really use the basket as a steamer as it should be used. Because the lid does not set flush on the kettle. It sets on part of the handle, so it can’t really hold in a lot of steam. It would be a huge improvement, if there was a notch in the lid. Because i have to cover it with foil otherwise. Other then that, it works great, and i would recommend.

The kettle is large enough to make large portions and the plug is magnetic which makes it easy to assemble. This is a good buy for this price. I would recommend this item.

Our big kettle was received when it was supposed to and its even better than we exspected it to be.

I filled it within an inch of the top with chicken stock ingredients, about 7 quarts. Near 20 hours at a low simmer, 190 f. Practically no loss by evaporation thanks to the lid. After straining there was 5 quarts of broth. My 5qt slow cooker cannot make more than about 3 quarts. While a common slow cooker boils even though set at ‘low’, this kettle can be set below boiling, and avoid boiling bones, creating too much gelatin, and perhaps even ‘burning’ the broth. Thanks to the large surface area, the 5 quarts broth was reduced by half in about 2 hours at a simmer. Finished broth could be boiled without any negative effects, and very quickly reduced. My slow reduction was only a test.

As a mom of 8 i needed something that could hold a decent amount of food at a time. We had one similar to this yet smaller a few years before, so i had an idea of what i wanted. It is the perfect size, having a basket that can hold a good bit of food in one batch. The legs are just high enough to keep the grease splashes off the counter tops, which makes cleaning up way easier. It heats up pretty quickly and is ready to fry in about 10 minutes. There is a grease line inside to show the desired filling. I also noticed, using a cheaper oil will make it bubble and pop. After use the handles come in handy to move and store it until the next use.

Great product, cook fast, easy to clean.

I needed an electric cooker to take advantage of the cheaper electricity in the winter where i live. Bought the big kettle cheaper elsewhere. I have this for two weeks now and have used it about 30 times cooking rice, soup, and steaming corns and potatoes. It cooks rice as well as my electric rice cooker in half the time. I haven’t fried anything with it because i don’t eat greasy food. Even though i am just one person, i am glad i bought the big kettle. The large cooking surface allows for faster cooking. I would prefer if it didn’t have the tapered design where the bottom is smaller than the top. I have a steaming rack that fits through the top and gets stuck in the middle due to the tapered shape of the kettle. I have to rest the rack on an empty soup can for balance.

Even though it does not reach 400° it actually reach 350 degrees, but i am still happy with its consistency. Works very well and is made of good quality and continues to work which is most important. I’m even considering purchasing a second one.

Got it 6 months ago and love it.

I made fried fish yesterday, excellent, you are going to like it.

 our family is a mix of many religions: pentecostal holiness, church of god, southern baptist, independent baptist, mormon, and catholic. We do our best to observe the holidays from as many religions as possible. Our muslim friends help us to understand their holy days and we do our best to honor them as we can. It is lent, a catholic holy season. Part of the observance of this holy season is to have fish on friday. It really does not seem to matter if the fish is a tuna sandwich, or fried catfish, or any other type of fish, for that matter. All the restaurants around have a lenten special this time of year because our area is heavily roman catholic. We can’t afford to eat out like that, but we did want to observe the holiday. So, we bought the presto big kettle 8-quart multi-cooker/steamer. With it, we can fry catfish for much less than it would cost to eat out every friday.

KitchenAid 9 and 12-Cup Food Processor French Fry Disc : Narrow french fries

Great for cutting french fries. Makes quick work of slicing the potatoes.

I thought this would fit my food processor, but it does not fit my model. I did not read the model numbers it fits, and mine was not included. Company was great to deal with.

I really like this french fry blade. It is a little different than i thought it would be, but it works great. It sure beats cutting fries by hand. There are so many different fry choices you can make with this blade.

Easy transaction, happy customer.

I primarily purchased this for fries but it does an excellent job on firm fruits and vegetables as well. The usual kitchenaid quality, of course.

KitchenAid 9 and 12-Cup Food Processor French Fry Disc : This is durable and fits my kitchen aide perfectly. I make perfect fries every time, no more chopping off the fingers lol.

I have the largest bowl they make. My feed tube is huge and it holds a large baking size potato. The slices have a slight curve to them which is fine with us.

I had all the slicing tools for my kitchen aid except this one. I wanted to make oven fries as i am trying to watch my weight. . Making french fires with this slicer is a breeze and the potatoes are cut uniformly and therefore they cook all at the same time. They are scrumptious to eat.

When i finally decided to purchase this after thinking about it for several months, there were only 2 reviews (both 2 stars) and i ignored them since the only specific complaint was that it makes stubby little fries if you don’t have the wide mouth feed tube. That makes sense, but i have a big mouth (on my food processor) and even if i didn’t, i wouldn’t completely mind stubby fries as long as i didn’t have to cut them myself. Inspecting the product, we noticed that the cutters are not uniform in width (see photo) and i was fearful that i might have to put up 3 stars and be somewhat saddened by the quality of the fry. Upon cutting my first russet with this disc, although the difference in widths of the fries was obvious (see photo), it wasn’t quite as bad as i feared – so i was thinking maybe 4 stars. However, after frying up several batches of fries for dinner, i realized that the difference in widths is not significant enough to cause problems in how they cooked. The fries came out cooked exactly how i would expect – some browner than others but none of them underdone or too crispy. So yes, the fries are different widths, but no, it doesn’t cause any problems. Oh, and this could’ve been a fluke, but the top was completely clear of potatoes when i was all done – that’s never happened when i’ve used other discs for potatoes. As for the quality and durability – it seems even sturdier than my other discs.

M.V. Trading Tatung Induction Cooker : Just like the restaurant!

The pot, however, oxidized or something after first use (there were marks on the bottom of the pot).

I ordered this induction cooker because it’s the exact one that my favorite hot pot restaurant uses. We’ve only used it for hot pot so far. Told my friend about this and she got the same one and loves it too.

Just got the cook top today and used it already. The included pot is pretty cheaply made but works fine with the cooker. Most of my other pots work well on the induction cooktop so i didn’t have to buy much else. I like that the cooktop has a rough finish so it will hides scratches better and it looks to be pretty durable. What i would like as improvements is more power settings so you can more finely manage the temperature and also a timer that you can adjust by the minute. Currently the timer only has 10 minute increments.

It cooks everything perfectly in less time. I like the way you can set the timer and walk away.

Tatung Induction Cooker with Stainless Steel Pot – 1500 Watts(BLACK) by M.V. Trading

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Tatung Induction Cooker with Stainless Steel Pot – 1500 Watts(BLACK)

I have used these for about three years. It does what an induction cooker is supposed to do. I do not give it top rating for two main reasons: it needs a heat selection between 2 and 3. The jump between 2 and 3 is bigger than i like. And the heat zone is smaller than ideal for a ten-inch or larger pan so that you get a concentration of heat in the center of the pan. Those who like to use cast iron pans can use them with this cooker. But be aware that, because cast iron does not spread heat as well as an induction-ready aluminum pan, the hot spot in the middle of 10-inch and larger cast iron pans is substantial. Another thing cast iron users should consider is that this cooker has a heat sensor which limits how hot a pan can get. The limit is low enough to make touching up the seasoning of a cast iron pan difficult.

Just got this tatung cooker to try out induction cooking for the first time. So far i’d say i’m happy but there will be a learning curve to master. Pros:does indeed start heating very quicklyresponsive to power level changes – water will start/stop boiling within seconds of a changeseems to work with my existing pans (including the t-fal stainless steel with copper in their bases – i have an old set which looks a bit different from what you can currently buy)large surface copes with my biggest potscons:noise – this is probably typical for most of these devices but there is a high pitch whine while the pan is on the cooker, what’s a little more disconcerting are the lower power levels where there is a click-click-click as the coil turns on and offalthough per above the power control is responsive, the lowest two power levels turn the coil on and off every few seconds (like a microwave on low power) rather than reduce the power going to the coil – this means getting a precise simmer is a little trickysupplied pan is ok, though not very thick metalin summary, it seems fine for high heat applications (like boiling) but will need some getting used to for lighter cooking.

This cooker works well for the price i paid for.

You must experiment to find out that only the inner circle on the cooker is really hot so the pan should be shaped to get all the heat from the center. It says that pans up to 10 inches will work but with a flat 10 inch pan, only the center really cooks. The pot that comes with it works well but a 10 inch flying pan did not cook on the edges.

One of my friends recommended it to me. Then i ordered one from amazon. Our whole family loves it very much.

This cooktop is a great way to try induction cooking. The heat control is precise and responsive like gas; maybe better. Warning, it may not work with all of your pans, especially if they are all aluminum or copper-clad stainless. It’s portable and lightweight. It will be excellent for home canning. It will also provide an additional side burner for holiday meals. The fan makes a little noise, like a small microwave. Some pans make a slight whirring sound as current is induced through them.

This review is for the tatung tict-1500w. I bought this induction cooktop from newegg on sale for $49. That was $20 off their normal price. I also have a burton induction cooktop that i bought from amazon for about $90. I have owned the burton for about a year now. The tatung looks and feels much cheaper than the burton. The burton has 10 power levels, the tatung has six. When cooking rice, the burton simmers it just right at power level number one, however on the tatung power level 1 isn’t enough and power level 2 is a little too much. With the burton i can set the timer in minutes, the tatung has six choices 10,20,30,60,120. I can also set the temperature on the burton, but not on the tatung.

This was 2nd purchase as a gift.

My husband bought this cooker over two years ago, i believe i do have more experience to say something about this cooker. Actually we love it, i designed to use it in backyard cooking because no smoke and not afraid of wind blowing all the flames,and it has been true all the time. My mom use it cooking outside a lot and doing some yardwork in the same time. It is very durable, reliable, we leave it at outside all year around, it still works on matter rain, hot or cold weather. It has controller for power adjustment. Sometime we carry it to camping side as long as it has electricity. The only drawback of this cooker is you do need a steel pot to react with the induction, alumina or others does not work. Maybe most of non-sticker pot are not made from steel, just be ware of that. I did buy one non-stick pot made from steel especially for this cooker.

It met my expectations as i use it each time i cook hot pot. . I like the big buttons on the control panel, it makes it easy for me to turn off and on the cooker.

A decent product for a decent price. It is not as precisely temperature controlled or time controlled as some other models are, but i didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg for what amounts to a hot plate either. It heats very quickly, is easy to clean and looks nice. After you use the pan the first time or two you have to clean it by heating vinegar in it because the pan gets these funny induction swirls in it. Just follow the directions and it will work out fine. The low setting is a little too low. Its ok as a warmer but its not enough to simmer.

I bought this induction cook top to have chinese hot pot at home. The product was shipped in a timely manner. The product is as described. It heats quickly and has +/- temperature adjustments which work very well. I recommend the cook top for anyone wanting to have a good quality cook top for hot pot or as a second burner.

I ordered this cooker thursday afternoon and received saturday (very fast shipping). Tonight i tested it by deep frying some fish using the pot that comes with it and i must say i’m impressed. It didn’t take long for the oil to heat (on medium/high) and it didn’t take long for the fish to fry (on medium heat). That never happened with my electric skillet. If the cookware you use is not induction ready, the unit will beep a few times then shut off. There is a very high pitched tone you can hear in addition to the fan when the cook top is heating but i only heard it when boiling water; i didn’t hear it when i was frying and its not really bothersome. It seems the only negative with induction cooking (so far) is having/finding the right cookware to use. Edit; this cook top is still going strong and works the same as when i first bought it.

Proquick heat for boiling water of less than 10 ounces. The speed didn’t beat other methods when boiling a large pot of water to make soup. Mother also use one, and we use these instead of common kitchen stove (electric or gas). Less risk of forgetting to turn off the heat / stove. Mother likes to clean the stove after using, and the electric stove, which could still beover 212 degrees after use, burned her towelthis unit doesn’t burn her towel. My mother and i do forget turning off the stove using regular stove top, electric or gas. Somehow, we never had this problem,control heats well on no.

Works with my basic stainless steel pots i bought from macy’s years back. It’s a bit noisy – there’s high pitch sound at low heat settings. Quiet down at higher settings though. It heats things up very fast, and very easy to clean afterward.

Great for home hot pot or shabu shabu meals. The pot is fairly sturdy and well made. It’s been a year since we bought this and it is still working fine.

To those having issues with lights 3 and 4 blinking. I received one and it didn’t work at all. If you take it apart using the screws on the back, you notice a small rubber bubble in the middle of the copper coil. There is some sort of sensor (probably magnetic) located on the top of that sensor, covered by a coating of white substance. I am assuming this is what initiates the induction process when a steel pot is detected on it. I tried wiping off the white substance so that there is a better connection and put the device back together and it worked just fine after that.

I’m building some eco cottages with kitchenettes; therefore, my interest exceeds even that of the typical homeowner. Induction cooking is the most efficient way to cook, so with ‘eco’ cottages, i love the technology and fully intend to use it. Built-in nduction cooktops cost a mint, so i wanted to try this, plus if you’re doing something in the kitchen that doesn’t require its use, you can put it aside in the corner of the countertop or even store it in the cupboard. Alternately, you can pull the spare from the cabinet and have two running, no problem. These are very common in europe but just catching on here. In 10 years, i predict these will dominate u. Simple, the direct control of gas with the ease of care associated with a smooth electric cooktop.

Hearthware Nu-wave Pro Digital Oven, Five Stars

The dome cracked after a few months. I paid for a replacement dome directly from the nuwave website. I did not find replacement parts on amazon. I did notice there was a better quality dome for about double the price of the original dome. I think the better quality dome should come standard. I have read many reviews on how the dome cracked and the poor customer service they received from nuwave.

This oven is convenient at time. The time suggested for the cooking is somewhat far off, still the food comes out pretty good when the spices and herbs are add to the recipes.

A year ago i bought a nuwave oven because my husband and i are both active duty air force and every night we are stretched for family time with our daughter. The nuwave allows us to whip up healthy nutritious meals in record time. I love this product so much i have bought one for my mother and brother. Buy one, you will not regret it.Oh and this year during thanksgiving, the nuwave saved our holiday. We tried to deep-fry a turkey and undercooked it. After the turkey was cut into, we couldn’t put it back in the fryer so, i put it in the nuwave and it came out perfect.

Comments from buyers

“Love the oven, beware of the dome.
, up to where it cost even more money to cool it back down
, Well worth your money

Not as fast as it claims or as hot. Not the easiest to clean but i am okay with it.

Cooks quickly and efficiently. Does not heat up the kitchen. Most of all i like that the nuwave oven uses less energy. Make sure you follow the times to cook because otherwise you can over or under cook meat. To be real sure of doneness and not under or over cooking your meat, use a meat thermometer like you do when you use your oven. I have not used the pizza cooking assessory yet so can not write a review for it.

I purchased the nuwave oven after seeing the infomercial on tv. Then i wondered why in the world i had gotten yet another appliance, but it has proved to be one of the handiest appliances i have owned. Now i use it mostly for broiling, but it is quite versatile and can be utilized for many other types of cooking. Food cooks faster and healthier in this oven. It saves using the big oven and cooks meat so it is very tender and juicy. It’s easy to clean, too, as all the parts except the cooking coils are washable. I liked the nuwave oven so much that i gave one to a friend as a wedding gift and she loves hers too.

Living in warm, tropical weather here in hawaii, big island, i wanted to hurry and replace my dead-after-8-years flavorwave oven but got mixed up with the competing ratings and bought this nuwave. They both are rated the same so i am pleased so far. Cooks from frozen and all the other things it’s supposed to do and above all,. I hated for linda to turn on that double doored hot oven for her baking and now,. She discovered this oven can do it the same way with a cooler house at that. She now is convinced i made a great investment with convection cooking when i discovered this instrument while being a real happy single guy with only his dog and an occasional,. . To savor all the good stuff together.

My mom is an ‘as seen on tv’ junkie and loves to purchase these gadgets if they really can sell it to her. I’m usually a skeptic, but this one also interested me. After convincing her to buy here than with the phone number or website from the infomercial (it is much cheaper here), we finally ordered one. As a family that is full of people on the go, we rarely make family meals. Instead of turning on a big oven to cook a meal for one, this oven really saves time and cleanup. We still have yet to explore all the different uses for this oven, but the different accessories and booklet this oven comes with really remind us of its potential. Despite note using it in many different ways, we definitely have been using it a lot. It is now the preferred oven and the go-to appliance when cooking meals.

I am sooooooo happy with this product. We are to the point of cooking every meal in it. I plan on having 2 to cook multiple meals and the cook top instead of using our stove. The one negative is the dome cracks and it you don’t buy it from the nu wave company ie amazon, the warranty is not covered. Oh well another dome is about 60 bucks. My favorite is the burgers and fries. Biscuits are also good the frozen to cooked with pre heating an oven is great. We don’t us our microwave which puts radiation into your food to cause negative affects.

I received my oven about 2 weeks ago and i have used it for a roast beef, a 5lb chicken, a pork shoulder, chicken cordon bleu, and air fried chicken. I followed the recommended cooking time and found that everything needed to be cooked just a few minutes longer. With experimentation and a thermometer i will nail that down. Now, with that out of the way, let me just tell you, everything was delicious. That 5 lb chicken was cooked to perfection. Crispy skin on the outside, juicy chicken on the inside. That pork shoulder that i cooked also came out excellent, and it was a six dollar and fifty cent piece of meat. I made slits in it and stuffed slivers of garlic in it, rubbed olive oil, adobo and oregano all over it and put in the nu wave. It tasted just as good as something you would get in a spanish restaurant. I didn’t even need to put it in the fridge over night.

I have only had the nuwave oven for a short time and so far i think it is great, i live alone and i can fix a whole meal for myself at once and not have to dirty a whole bunch of pot’s and pan’s, also it does it very fast, leave’s in the moisture and everything i have cooked taste’s great, some things i haven’t cooked in it but i am on my way to loving it.

Love this thing ,globes are junk i have replaced 3 ,bought the heavy duty one , it’s hard to order regular replacement globe never in stock , cook in this thing 3-4 times a week.

It takes a little longer to cook than chart says and noticed that the food does not stay hot as long as when it is cooked in regular oven.

We all see all sorts of fantastic devises that are advertised to make our life easier. The nuwave actually does make life so simple that it should be illegal. If you are a meat eater you gotta have this thing. I but steaks when they are on sale in a ‘family pack’. I season them and then freeze them. Any time you want a steak- take it out of the freezer bag and toss it on the nuwave. Frozen to perfect in less than 1/2 hour.

Easy to follow instructions, and easy to use. I made our thanksgiving turkey in the nuwave and i turned out perfectly cooked and moist.

Buy one get one free on nuwave site.

This was the most wonderful gift i bought myself.

They work well and gets used constantly.

My wife has been wanting one of these for 2 years. Finally i bought her one for her birthday and she loves it. Works as described and clean up is easy.

The food tastes so much better and my kids loved everything i cook with the nuwave. I tell to everyone i know about how great it is. Then one day, it just stopped working. I called the manufacture and got an exchange (thank god, it was still under warranty — 1 year).

Love the oven, hate the fact that the dome started to crack after a few uses. Based on what i have read in other reviews this appears to be quite typical. It does a great job of cooking. I’m resigned to the fact that i will need to be replacing the dome which from what i read is not covered by the warranty.

Number one: doesn’t heat up your kitchen like a typical oven-and that is very important in these 90 degree days. I have cooked numerous things in this and have really enjoyed the ease of use and cleanup. Love making waterless boiled eggs-now i don’t dread dealing with hot water and steam.

This is the best machine i own. I often forget to take meat out of the freezer and being able to cook straight from frozen is a huge plus. The food comes out so moist.

It is important to try it out and get a feel for how it cooks, don’t expect to master it the first time you use it. There is a lot of room for user error with this. Using the different racks and placement of food in the oven will greatly impact how well something is done. For example, i find that a frozen chicken breast will cook best on a rack near the bottom of the oven, as opposed to near the top on a secondary rack. I find that the cooking time of the oven is about half of what a conventional oven would be. There are some things in this that do take as long as a conventional oven or cooktop. I really like using this for frozen food and snacks. I’ve also used it a few times as a secondary oven, which is nice for making dinners- i don’t have a ‘double oven’ built in, so it’s nice to use the nuwave alongside my regular oven so i can, for example, bake bread in my regular oven and cook my chicken breasts in the nuwave at the same time. Clean up is easy if you use round pans, like the one they include, or if you line the very bottom with foil.
