Luckily I just received my NuWave Oven on Tuesday, and my came with the recipe books, so here goes Turkey up to l0 lbs.

Season inside and out with salt and pepper and any other favourite seasoning. NuWave on Hl for about l5 mins. per pound. Place breast side down on l" rack and turn half way through cooking time. Season the top and continue to cook the rest of the time.

FROZEN: Following instructions above, but NuWave 25 minutes per pound.

Anything over l0 lbs must have the Extender Ring accessory. The above is from the recipe booklet. However the Quick and Easy Cooking Guide plastic chart states whole turkey 12 min per lb fresh l5 min per lb frozen for whole turkeys. So the oven temperature should be l80 F (82C)

They also recommend you use a easy read oven thermometer. Hope this gets to you in time. Happy Thanksgiving. Gail in Canada

I also have one of their recipe cards they sent as a free gift I'll type out now if it helps as well.

A little involved but there is all I have that came with the oven and instructions, I really hope this helps and gets to you in time.

I had one of these ovens and found that the fan blew lighter weight food all over the place and burned stationary food on the top (windburn + heat).

If you are going to do something like french fries, keep an eagle eye on it the first time to make sure you don't have these problems.

I took a chance and bought one at a local store. It said it would cook from frozen. I tried 2 chicken breast

done on outside frozen on inside. I tried a 3 lb turkey breast with increased time about 20 min per lb. Done on the outside, cold on the inside. If I go longer on time for a 10 lb turkey, it will take twice as long as a browning bag in a conventional oven. May work ok on thin stuff, but no better than a George Foreman type grill. I have been robbed of $120, without a gun.

Just a little correction to my last post I did know times are per side witch makes it 40 total per pound. In the nu wave oven, after all infra-red same heat as almost any heating element convection. A fan, same as any convection oven.

Conduction, when things are touching hot meat heating cold. Duh, on me. Should have known there was no magic.

I cooked an almost 12 pound turkey in the NuWave today. From frozen; 25 minutes per pound. I added an extra 15 or 20 minutes. It came out perfect. Yummy. Have had my Nu-Wave for almost 2 years.. We love it! First, time for turkey. I don't know why others are having problems. We brought direct from company. Maybe others are generic?
