Nuwave Oven Review – Worthwhile Investment?
Will the NuWave live up to its hype like it did on TV?
This review will give you a better understanding of yet another As Seen on TV product that may or may not work like presented.
Living a long, healthy life is a product of what you feed your body and you should be taking in healthy food in the right quantities to be healthy.
However, even the most nutritious food can be unhealthy if not cooked in the right manner, so will the NuWave oven be the solution?
The method used in the preparation of food has a great impact on how the body acquires and assimilates the nutrients.
Also, it determines whether the food will be useful in promoting good health in the person consuming it.
The traditional use of pans in the cooking process is slowly being replaced by ovens in the modern world, as ovens make the process fast and efficient.
The NuWave oven uses infrared in cooking, with 3 different cooking methods:
- Convection– the transfer of heat that occurs when hot air moves in a circular motion.
- Conduction– Transfer of heat between two parts which are in conduct but stationery.
- Infrared– A form of penetrative energy.
80% of the energy we get from sunlight is in the form of infrared energy. Human beings also produce some level of infrared energy, which means that this radiant heat is as natural as it can be.
The NuWave oven uses this kind of energy in the cooking process.
The convection method in cooking is only available in the fancy restaurants, as it is the best method when you just want to infuse flavors in your meals.
Combined with conduction and infrared cooking, you will get the best possible meal ever.
With the NuWave oven, you can broil, barbecue, roast, bake, dehydrate, steam, or even air fry like the Power Air Fryer XL.
Because the oven is energy efficient, you can save up to 75% electricity costs when you choose to use it in cooking, which is one thing that might just make this appliance worth it alone.
However, there are precautions to be observed in this process.
Even though the oven is capable of browning food in the cooking process, it is not healthy. You should not brown your food with the excuse that any food cooked using the NuWave oven is safe.
Precautions when using the NuWave oven
- Do not place the NuWave oven power head in your dishwasher.
- Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines
- When cleaning the oven parts, let them dry up naturally as it increases the life of the oven.
How the NuWave Oven Works
This oven consists of a powerful and unique triple combo. The different cooking processes when combined ensure that the meal preparation objectives are met.
Through conduction, heat is directly applied to the food just like what happens in the traditional ovens.
In convection, a fan circulates hot air over and around the food and infrared energy is needed to ensure the heat also penetrates the food for complete cooking.
The three process ensure that everything is cooked evenly, which results in having crispy food items on the outside but they will be juicy and moist on the inner side.

What I Like Most About the NuWave Oven
Despite the size, the NuWave oven is very powerful when it comes to meal preparation.
I’m sure, there are many small ovens in the market, but they cannot beat the NuWave oven when it comes to performance.
With a single press of a button, your food will be perfectly cooked and you do not have to watch over the food to avoid burning or spills.
You do not have to spend a lot of money going out to eat all the time to have amazing food, because this little appliance does make food tastier and easier to cook.
The oven is durable and we have had ours for over two years now and it is still kicking.
Cons of the Nuwave Oven
Obviously there’s a size limit, which is a clear indication that this handy infrared cooker will not replace your regular old oven, so you might want to keep that if you were thinking about giving it to your neighbor.
It also won’t fit a huge turkey, but it can fit some.
Other than that, I have no complaints about the NuWave.
Where to Buy
With further research, I have found the best prices to be on Amazon, but they don’t offer the buy one get one free deal.
However, the price is a lot cheaper and in the end, it comes out to about the same price if you were to purchase two NuWave Ovens.
If you enjoy making tasty and healthy meals, try the Nuwave oven, and you will not regret it as it does cook your food faster and it does produce healthier meals.
I give the Nuwave oven two thumbs up and is definitely going to add to your kitchen in a very positive way.
