According to review site Good Home Products, the NuWave oven is not a scam. However, it does present some drawbacks, such as its sensitive plastic dome.
Users report generally positive experiences with the NuWave Oven, citing reduced energy costs, reduced food preparation time and the device's versatility. The product's main drawback is its plastic dome, which is prone to cracking and breaking. To promote durability, users can wash the dome right after use and allow it to air dry rather than using heated dry cycles. In 2014, the company released a new dome, which it claims is shatter-resistant.
The NuWave oven is a small countertop oven which the NuWave website claims uses 75 percent less energy and cooks up to 70 percent faster than a conventional oven.
