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.
