The white one doesn't have the extras like the extender ring but it's a better price unless you want to make a turkey in it. I'm not sure if I will make a turkey in mine because I usually get a free turkey for Thanksgiving and I pick out the biggest one that I can since it's free. I don't want to be limited to just a 10 pound turkey when I can get a 20 pound one for nothing.

Thanks for the input, LindaSue. I know the white one doesn't traditionally have the extras, but this one says "pro" and that it's digital and if you read the description it says it includes the extender ring, all of which I thought were only included in the black one. So...I dunno. They seem exactly the same except for the color so I feel like I might as well get the cheaper one.

Am I missing something?
That does sound like the best deal then, Emily. I think when they call it "Pro", they just mean digital instead of analog but I could be wrong about that.

I just realized that they're showing the extender ring in the photo. What they don't mention in the description on the Kohl's site is the extra rack and round baking pan.

Sorry I keep bugging you!! Just to clarify, this is what Kohl's says is included:

pro power head, dome, 3-in. extender ring, cooking rack, liner pan, base tray & dome holder
Dishwasher safe dome, extender ring, cooking rack & liner pan

None of these are the extra rack and baking pan you mentioned, correct? How important are those?

They repeated the extender ring, cooking rack and liner pan. The add-on kit that the extender ring usually comes with included a separate round baking pan (the liner pan is something that you must use every time) and a 2-inch rack that can be used by itself or stacked on the 4-inch rack (which flips over to become a 1-inch rack). I haven't used the round pan or the 2-inch rack yet but I haven't had my Nuwave oven very long. For most things I find that I cook on the highest rack so that my meat is as close as possible to the heat source but I've also used it in the 1-inch position quite a bit, such as for the Creamy Eggs.
Hi everyone,
I do not mean to butt into your conversation, however, I found this site doing a search looking for recipes for the NuWave Convection Oven. I don't have a NuWave, and in fact, just bought one of these from Aldi (their house brand Crofton) today for $40.00. It looks just like it, but does NOT come with a recipe book!!
I'm about to try making a frozen steak with it. Wish me luck!
P.S. If anyone has any recipes to share, I would love to hear from you.
Thanks,
Cooky
Hi,

The oven sounds interesting, let us know how it works out.

I noticed that the Crofton is convection only while the Nuwave is convection, infrared and conduction. That is probably why there is such a great price difference.

Tia - Sorry I was out of town the last few days and did not respond to your questions. Thanks for helping out, Linda.

Here's a photo of the Crofton. It looks tiny but sometimes photos are deceiving. It says on the Aldi site that it holds three gallons so it must be pretty big.

THANK YOU Nuwave Oveners!!

I used mine for the first time tonight. As I usually do, I forgot to defrost anything for dinner tonight. Previously that would have meant going to the drive-through for a salad, or calling for Chinese or Italian takeout (both of which are too many carbs for me). I had a box of bleu cheese burgers in the freezer and I cooked them up. They cooked just fine, but they were kind of blah. But, I also had some frozen regular hamburgers so I cooked one of those up too -- it was deelicious -- I think because the other burgers were "pre-cooked" they would have been blah no matter how they were made. I cannot wait to start experimenting with this thing and cooking roasts and chickens. I think it is going to help us keep our expenses down (by not having to order out), to eat healthier (not so much carry-out), and enable me to stick to low carbing!!

Oh! and the cleanup was super easy!

I'm looking forward to trying some of the different recipes -- so if anyone has a fave that they haven't posted yet, I'm eager to sample!!

Thanks again!
I have had my Nuwave Pro for about 3 months now, and I love it.
Talk about saving time. I was like many...forget to lay something out to thaw and end up getting fast food!
Anyway, I found this site by scouring for recipes for the Nuwave, and thought I would add that I bought mine through Amazon directly.
Looks like the Pro is out of stock,but the Nuwave Analog White is in stock and ready to ship for anyone wondering.

You won't be disappointed. I'm thinking of getting one for Mom this for Christmas.

Welcome to the forum, Samantha.
Thanks!
I used my Nuwave last night to make bacon for the first time.
Hadn't used it for that before. It worked great, but I found it took about 15 minutes as opposed to the 7-8 minutes they suggest. I like it crispy!
It is amazing how much grease you end up...to think a lot of that used to be eaten with the bacon!

Yet another reason I love mine...

I made the Ugly Green Bean snack in mine tonight...OMGosh...they were wonderful.

Just put in green beans. Sprayed with butter flavored Pam and sprinkled with garlic salt. Cooked on 50% power for 45 minutes. They were perfect, a crunchy little snack. I put them in the round cake pan.

Now...I must buy more green beans.
Hi Deedlynn -- the green beans sound yummy. Did you use fresh, or do you think I could use frozen?
luvdogs Wrote:Hi Deedlynn -- the green beans sound yummy. Did you use fresh, or do you think I could use frozen?


I used fresh......but most of the threads I've read about them use frozen......so....as a matter of fact...I have a batch of frozen ones in there right now.

The only thing I've found is that I prefer skinnier beans.....they crisp up and remind me of the onion straws at some of the steak restaurants.

I have made them everyday this week so far. LOL.

Good stuff.
Hi everyone,

Just got my nuwave oven about a month ago. Works great but can't say as I am overly impressed. I hope it is just because I need more practice. Does anyone have any simple recipes for a single person? I'm not much of a cook but am trying to eat better and am looking for something easy and different from the same old stuff. Hope there are some tasty dishes I can try for a change. Thanks, hope someone is still hangin' around to help me out
Hi,

The NuWave oven has been replaced by another oven:

Morningware Oven

I like the glass bottom on the new model. This model also has halogen added to the infrared, convection and conduction. It has a delayed timer and three hour warming feature which would come in handy. It is also less expensive than the previous model.

If anyone orders this new oven please post how you like it on here. Canadians - the shopping channel had it for sale but they sold out. Their price was $98.00. Hopefully they will get more of them. I am considering ordering one of these new ones and letting giving the one I have to my MIL.

Val
Val, it hasn't replaced the Nuwave oven. It's just another brand of the same kind of thing.
Hi. I spilled a jar of grease on my NuWave oven chart. I know somewhere on these 12 pages there was a link to a site where you can print out the chart. Does anyone have that link? I want to cook a 6 lb eye of round roast beef. It just barely fits into the NuWave. I'm not sure if I should cut it in half, or cook it as big as it is. Any advice?
I found the link to the cooking chart:
