Easy to make - easy cleanup.


  • 3 lbs chicken wings, about 16
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup hot sauce, mild to wild
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Arrange wings in Wave oven and heat on 4 inch rack. Turn over once, until browned and cooked through, 18 - 20 minutes total. Melt the butter in a saucepan, and mix in the hot sauce, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Place wings in a large container with a secure lid. Pour sauce over the wings, and seal. Shake wings with the sauce until thoroughly coated.

Servings: 16
Prep Time: 4 -5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Source: I like wings, but I don't like the mess, so I tried this in my Wave oven and have been doing this for years.

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.

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?

Does anyone know where I can find recipes for my NuWave oven?

By Kay

Hi Kay,

My friend next door got one too so I searched about. There are a bunch at the link below. I imagine that once you know how to use the oven, one could incorporate recipes of their own. Good luck with it~
