Review: Nuwave Pro Digital-Controlled Infrared Tabletop Oven
Infrared ovens are the latest small appliance rage, and we've been fortunate enough over the past few weeks to be cooking with the Nuwave 20322 Pro Digital-Controlled Infrared Tabletop Oven. We were skeptical at first if this appliance could really make great tasting ribs, chicken, vegetables, and other foods, but we are skeptical no longer. The Nuwave oven delivers great tasting foods cooked perfectly, and it's easy. You simply set the timer and position the included racks and in whatever time you need the food to cook - you get moist really tasty results.
The Nuwave oven uses confection, infrared, and conduction cooking methods.
The Nuwave Pro cooks foods while keeping them moist on the inside, crisp and browned on the outside with out using any fats or oils. The Nuwave Pro Infrared Oven works with a patented trio of cooking methods: Conduction to apply heat directly to food, Convection to circulate the heat around the food, and Far Infrared radiant heat to penetrate the food to cook from the inside out.
Key Nuwave Oven Features:
- Digital-controlled infrared oven cooks food quickly and easily
- Cooking methods include conduction, convection, and infrared radiant heat
- No preheating, defrosting, or ventilation needed; dishwasher-safe parts
- Extender ring, cooking rack, baking pan, manual, and recipes included
- Measures approximately 14 by 14 by 16 inches; 1-year limited warranty
This tabletop infrared oven comes with an extender ring kit which includes a 3 extender ring, a 2 stainless steel cooking rack, and a 10 micro ceramic backing pan. We didn't get to use the extender ring, but did find it easy to store around the outside of the oven when not in use.
Cooking with the Nuwave Oven
We decided to make spareribs, and cooking them couldn't be easier. We set the timer on 15 minutes a side, and then waited for the results.
Our prepped ribs on the 4" rack.
The display is easy to use and program.
There's really only the entering time and hitting start.
Here you can see the entire Nuwave oven cooking our spareribs.
In just 30 minutes we had perfectly cooked spare ribs.
Moist and tender. Amazing.
We think the results speak for themselves.
We highly recommend the Nuwave 20322 Pro Digital-Controlled Infrared Tabletop Oven. Since we did this review, we've cooked chicken breasts, pork chops, asparagus, and a ton of other foods. We've been using this in place of grilling when it's been raining, and we really are enjoying the convenience and also low power the Nuwave oven uses. And that's another plus, you're not heating up your entire oven and cooktop to make dinner, you can really use the Nuwave to prepare the entire meal.
