Note, if you don’t have a lot of time, or you don’t want the full story, skip to my Bottom Line section at the end.
I do a lot of eating out, in fact, I was doing too much eating out and I knew that had to quit. I know it’s more economical and in most cases better for you to eat at home, but the challenge I have is that I don’t have a lot of time – and let’s face it, I don’t want to have to work that hard to get food. Like most guys, I am not that interested in cooking, I just like eating.
The trouble is, neither of the cooking appliances I had in the house were really good at cooking chicken, meat, sandwiches, pizza, etc: the microwave’s quick but the food comes out rubbery (and it doesn’t cook meat well). The oven on the other had takes way too long to get going, I can’t see the food when it’s in there and it’s just not that practical to turn it on for a couple of pieces of chicken. So therein is my problem: I know I need to eat better at home, but I don’t have the equipment to cook the food that I like.
A few months ago I started seeing ads on television for the NuWave and Flavor Wave Ovens. Probably much like you I was skeptical of the advertising, while the infomercials they’re running nowadays are comical, I’ve found many of them to be not as much dishonest but not forthright in telling the whole truth. For example, I’d purchased a Magic Bullet a year ago, in all honesty it works okay, but I still see the ads running on TV and I notice that they toned down or muted the sound of the gizmo when it was running – it almost sounds whisper quite. The Magic Bullet is anything but whisper quiet, that’s what I mean about not telling the whole truth. The bottom line, you have to be careful when ordering off of television infomercials.
NuWave Versus Flavor Wave Ovens:
Well, I waited for quite some time before pulling the trigger on one of these ovens. I’d invested an hour or two reading online reviews (where I could find them), and I found that both the NuWave and Flavor Wave Ovens had good reviews and bad reviews as well. The majority of the bad reviews centered on poor customer service, durability issues and the inability to get assistance if/when your oven broke. I’ve had my oven for a month or so now and to this point, it’s worked fine, so I am not sure if these negative reviews are true or not – I just don’t know. What I can tell you is that I looked at both NuWave and Flavor Wave Ovens and just decided to go with the NuWave because I could set it to individual minutes (the Flavor Wave I don’t believe can …
