Anybody own either of these. My friend has the nuwave and swears by it. I of course checked q.v.c. and saw they have the flavor wave. Wondering if you guys have it and what you think of both. which is better?
I have both and like both of them. In my experience thus far the Nuwave cooks a bit faster, but the Flavorwave has the very nice glass bowl that will be last longer as the previous Nuwave I had (as many will attest to) had the plastic dome crack due to the inability to withstand repeated/daily use over a period of time.
Either one of these units are good and will very nicely replace a large oven for most things. My favorite of all time was the Jet Stream Oven, but I replaced no less than 3 domes and several other pieces of its plastic.
I really wish that they would develop a heat tolerant plastic for the JSO and Nuwave and until then, the Flavorwave/Supentown glass units work very well.
Furthermore, in support of my choice of the JSO, it cooks much faster than either the Nu or FW t ype ovens and I remember one Thanksgiving that I had my young boys that I used 4 expander rings and a turkey stainless steel vertical roaster and cooked a 23 lb turkey in less than 4 hours.
Certainly the most entertaining units are the JSO as you can literally watch pop and fresh rolls rise and brown in front of your eyes in less than 3 minutes..
Since 1992 I really have grown to enjoy these ovens and have only a few times in these years since used my regular oven.
I have one of these ovens too--I've had it at lest 15 years and use it all the time. I have the one with the glass bowl and the metal rings. I roast veggies in it that are so good. Haven't tried to do much baking in it though.
i have the nuwave, bought it at bj's several montha ago. i LUV it!!!!! makes awesome baked/ roasted chicken, turkey, cornish hens. great on the frozen appitizer bites, like eggrolls, & such that gd likes. i have even reheated fried chicken and it didnt dry out and came out crispy. i use it at least a coupla times a week. i brined pork chops and did them in it the other week. dd said they were awesome, and chops are her fav so i didnt want to mess em up!!lol nascar fan
What is the capacity these ovens will take? Could I make 2 chickens at once?
well mine has an expander ring but dont think 2 oven stuffers would fit. it will hold a turkey, nota hughmongust one, smaller sized one. nascar fann
