Tip: Product Review: NuWave Infrared Cooker

By Cornelia 45 72

Product: NuWave Infrared Cooker

Manufacturer: Hearthware

Cost: $99.00

It seems pricey on the surface, but has saved us time and electricity. it cooks quickly and well. much, much more quickly than a standard stove, and the cooked meat is moist, tender, juicy and is cooked right.

I did find the instructions basically useless-not that there aren't plenty of them, but that the estimated time/heat for cooking didn't work for where I live (1475 feet above sea level) and may not work for where you live. I suggest just trial and error. a knob with numbers 1-10 lets you set the heat level, I find 1-4 is best for defrost, 8-10 for final cooking. another knob lets you set the cooking time. it's that simple.

with a clear cover, it's easy to see how the meal is coming along. The wire grill is as difficult to clean as a barbecue grill, but a minor hassle if you turn it high side down in it's tray and let the tray and grill soak in soapy water.

I really can't complain about anything to do with the NuWave, the few issues I have with it can be circumvented. I did try both models, the manual and the digital. the digital died on us almost immediately. the manual is much sturdier.

I swear by my NuWave. I've successfully cooked steak, roast, chicken and fish, as well as potatoes in it, and they are delicious. I'm a really poor cook, but we eat nice, flavorful meals thanks to the NuWave. because it is infrared, it is much cooler than a stove so summer cooking is lots cooler. it cooks very hot, but doesn't leak heat.

it is simple and easy to use, relatively easy to clean, and rather conservative in power use and heat expenditure.

I bought one this past October and I wouldn't be able to survive without it. My favorite thing is roasting veggies. I just toss them in the bottom of the glass bowl (no rack) with a little olive oil, S&P and let it do it's thing. It cooks meat tender and juicy, and I have even dehydrated a few herbs which came out great.

I did have a Nuwave oven but the dome cracked and I didn't want to pay almost 50 bucks in shipping to get a new one. Love the glass bowl on the Flavorwave!

If a recipe says to cook in a regular oven at 350 F for 45 minutes, how long should it be cooked in the NuWave? Is there a calculation or formula?
