Let me start by saying I am not a paid advertiser for this product. I actually own a NuWave Oven Pro and have for about five years now. I love it! I’ve had three ONLY because of moving from one house to another, not because of anything wrong with my NuWave Oven Pro.
This post will be a mix of facts about the NuWave Oven along with my personal experience and opinions of this product.
The NuWave Oven – What is it?
The NuWave Oven is conduction, infrared, and convection oven rolled into one. It’s 1500 watts and uses conduction heat like an oven, convection heat to circulate hot air around the food, and infrared heat to penetrate the food and cook it all the way through.
This little oven sits on the countertop and claims to be faster, healthier, and energy-efficient, using 75% less energy than a regular convection oven. Clean-up is faster and the accessories are dishwasher safe. It is also able to cook from frozen with no need to defrost and the food cooks all the way through, juicy, and delicious.
Cooking with the NuWave Oven releases up to 250% more fat drippings than roasting or baking in a conventional oven which is important in fighting obesity and other health-related issues from what you eat and how it is cooked.
The NuWave Oven has a few different models: Nuwave Oven Pro, Pro Plus, and the Elite model.
The Nuwave Oven Pro Plus: Includes advanced digital temperature controls, allowing the food to cook between 100°F and 350°F in 1-degree increments, with new cooking functions like Warm and Delay. This model allows you to cook up to 70% faster while using up to 75% less energy than a regular or standard oven. The NuWave Oven Pro Plus comes with a shatter-resistant Power Dome as well. (I now have this one)
The NuWave Oven Elite: Has a wider temperature range making it capable of cooking between 100℉ and 420℉ in 1-degree increments. This oven comes with a programming feature that allows you to save over 100 recipes into the powerhead. It includes a Warm and Delay function like the Pro Plus but this model also allows you to Dehydrate. And like the Pro Plus, it comes with a shatter-resistant Power Dome. This is their most advanced NuWave Oven.
You can purchase accessories like an Extender Ring Kit which will allow you to make whole chickens and up to a 16 lb. turkey. Their site offers other accessories as well, such as A Pizza Kit, Baking Kit, even a Party Mixer. I have used the Pizza Kit and the Extender Ring Kit.
The Pro model starts at $119 + s&h and the Pro Plus will run you $139.99 while the Elite will get you at $199.99.
Prices go up, of course, according to whether or not you purchase one of these models which include the extender ring kit.
All of this information can be found on their site mynuwaveoven where you can purchase a NuWave Pro, Pro Plus, or the Elite model.
I Love My NuWave Oven Pro Plus – Why?
Why do I love this NuWave Oven? Because it really does everything it says it can do. When I lived in the south (deep hot south) this was my oven. Meals are created in half the time it would have taken me to cook on a stove or in a standard oven. I can air fry, steam, broil, bake, roast, and all the other things mentioned above. PLUS it doesn’t push out heat like an oven.
It’s been 100 degrees outside and I don’t have to worry about the temperature in the house when I am cooking, unlike a standard oven. Most folks in the south won’t even turn on their ovens during the summer months and I was one of them.
Before I got my NuWave Pro Plus my family would eat out or anything that would not require the use of the oven or the stove. Once I started using the NuWave Oven I was no longer limited by what I could cook for my family since I no longer had to worry about it getting 100 degrees in the house.
The NuWave Oven
Mynuwaveoven claims the NuWave Oven can cook a whole chicken and up to a 16 lb. turkey… Yep, it can and I have. I have even cooked up to a 10 lb. frozen turkey.
Just in case you missed the little fact I threw in… Yep, it will cook your food from straight out of the freezer!. No defrosting, No preheating! I like my food well seasoned, so I would season the frozen meats, fish or veggies just like I would if it was thawed and all I have to do is push PAUSE.
I am no longer a meat-eater, I do enjoy seafood and lots of fresh veggies. But when I first got the NuWave Oven I was still a meat eater so I have cooked pretty much everything in it, including cornbread (the southern in me).
These NuWave Ovens can be a bit pricey if you buy directly from their site but you can also find these in a few other places like:
- Amazon NuWave 20633 Pro Plus Ovens with Stainless Steel Extender Ring, Black starting at $118.51 with free shipping.
- Bed, Bath & Beyond The NuWave Oven Pro & The NuWave Oven Pro Plus for $99.99
- Khols NuWave Pro Plus for $119.99
- Walmart NuWave Pro for $119.95
You can also purchase from As Seen On TV for 3 easy payments of $39.95 + s/h which basically come out to $119.95. The offer includes:
- Buy 1 NuWave Oven Pro Plus & get a second one free, pay separate shipping

I don’t know what you think but that’s a pretty excellent deal in my book! I paid $119.95 for mine and got NONE OF THAT! Lol
This little countertop gadget gets all of my votes! It even comes with a carrying case. Love it!
The NuWave Oven is fast, efficient, easy to use, and makes quick, deliciously healthy meals for you and the loved ones. It is a conduction, infrared, and convention oven using conduction heat like an oven, convection heat to circulate hot air around the food, and infrared heat to penetrate the food so it cooks all the way through.
A little instruction booklet/pamphlet will come with the new oven which will give you cooking times and heating temperatures for different foods like, how long to roast potatoes, what temperature to cook fish and other foods. This I found to be very helpful.
If you ever wanted to try a NuWave Oven the As Seen On TV offer is the best deal I have seen and although the guarantee is awesome, it really isn’t necessary. You probably won’t give it up.
