What is the NuWave Oven?
The NuWave Oven is a new type of appliance for your kitchen that combines three different kinds of heat to help cook meals faster and more efficiently. Unlike an ordinary oven, the NuWave uses conduction, convection and infrared heat all at once to not only cook faster, but to help cook food more evenly. Conduction heat is applied all around the surface of the food, heating from the outside in. Convection heat is applied by circulating the hot air molecules around the food. Finally, infrared heat is applied via invisible waves that cook not only the outside but the inside of the food as well.
In addition to this revolutionary heating system, the NuWave Oven is also designed to be portable and durable. Despite being able to cook whole meals, the oven is only a little over a foot long and weighs approximately 10 pounds. This makes it perfect for counter-top cooking and for traveling to a potluck or other event. Since it’s made from very durable high-quality materials, it’s also designed to be used every day without any loss of quality.
The oven also comes in several different varieties depending on your cooking needs. There is the original, which comes with analog controls and 12″ cooking surface. For more advanced users, there is the Pro model, which features a bigger interior and completely digital control panel. If size is a problem, they also have the Mini model, which only weighs 6 pounds and features a slightly smaller cooking interior. All of their models feature the triple cooking power technology that makes the NuWave Oven extraordinary.
Features & Benefits
In terms of cooking, the best feature of the NuWave Oven is how much quicker it is than other cooking appliances on the market. While a traditional oven may be bigger, it doesn’t begin to compare to the power of this oven. This product can cook up to 50% faster using its triple cooking technology, and it does so in a much smaller space. Meals that would take 90 minutes to prepare can be finished in half the time. There isn’t a faster cooking product anywhere.
As amazing as the oven is at cooking, it is even more amazing at saving you money on your energy bill. The whole line of ovens use 85% less power than a conventional oven. This is accomplished due to the fact that there is no preheating required, and because the oven is so compact, you’re not heating areas unnecessarily like you would with a conventional oven. Foods can also be cooked frozen, which saves money on costs associated with defrosting. It is also extremely energy efficient when it does heat up, which not only saves you money, but helps save the environment by being more green and eco-friendly.
The oven also comes with a 360 degree viewing area so you can see your food as it cooks. This enables you to cook your foods just the way you want them, without having to open an oven door or release any heat. Since the oven also comes apart, it cleans easily. No longer will you have to scrub a giant oven, instead you just need to wipe down a few small parts. Some parts can even be placed in the dishwasher.
Does Food Taste as Good?
If you’re thinking that the NuWave Oven is sacrificing taste for speed, you’d be wrong. Despite cooking faster and more efficiently, food tastes just as good as it normally does. In most cases, it tastes even better. Since the oven can cook without unnecessary oils and fats, food is not only healthier, but it tastes better too. Leftovers especially taste better, as some models include a special reheat button specifically designed to warm up already cooked foods.
If you’re hesitant to buy the NuWave Oven, don’t be. Since it’s capable of all kinds of cooking, including baking, air frying and steaming, it will likely be the last cooking appliance you ever buy. You’ll save time, money and frustration, plus your food will taste better than ever. While other products may promise a lot and not deliver, this oven truly lives up to its hype.
