I went out and bought 3 "pyrex" dishes which easily fit into the oven, one for baking/broiling, one deep dish for lasagna, meatloaf, and a cassarole with lid, for stews. Now what this helps me with is that I am now cooking smaller portions. One will no longer cook as if you are feeding the 8th army, leaving a slew of leftovers in the fridge. If you are single, or a couple, you will not mind that you are cooking smaller meals, because not only is it good for your waist line, you will also not waste food. Since using this oven is fast and efficient, cooking will not seem like a chore.
Now obviously if you are feeding a family of 5, this oven may not be for you.
My one caveat, as noted by others, is that the top of the oven does indeed become too hot. You will not want any children around it, but that's a good rule for any type of cooking.Read more ›
I must say this oven is very light in comparison to what I imagined. As a result I store it away in it's box and just pull it out when I'm going to use it. The inside dimensions are 10-5/16" x 11" x 6". This size will accomodate the included slide rack, bake pan, and broil rack. It will also accomodate an 8" x 8" or 9" x 9" glass dish.
The oven has several settings: pizza, cookies, quick foods, speed toast, bake & roast, broil, and the convert menu. I found the speed toast setting to work very well and quickly brown toast to perfection. The pizza setting I found to be a little short on time, so I now use the add time buttons to increase the cooking times by three minutes. I've also used the convert setting to bake canned, refrigerated cinnamon rolls. It did an excellent job converting the cooking instructions into Infrawave instruction. In ten minutes (no preheating) I had perfect rolls. On items with sweet toppings (ie: sugar, cinnamon) I found that covering the top with aluminum foil for the first half of the cooking time prevents the items from burning on top.
Overall, I have been very pleased with the performance of this appliance. I will update this review once I've had time to try out the bake and roast setting and the broil setting.
I've continued to use this oven frequently and am very happy with it. The broil feature has been especially useful. I normally wouldn't broil anything as it took way too long for my electric oven to reach the necessary temperature. Plus the door needed to be propped open.Read more ›
Haven't used it as an oven yet though. Advises against using frozen foods that are to be cooked in their plastic container even if container has oven as well as microwave cooking directions.
The Infrawave comes with an assortment of literature as well as an instructional DVD which proved to be very helpful.
The first time I used it, I cooked 2 small shoulder steaks with carrots and sliced potatoes. The results were positive, but not life altering. I chalked it up to being a first timer. The vegetables did not come out soft and steaks seemed a little dehydrated (even using the conversion setting). But like I said, I was still thought it was a positive experience.
The second and final time I used it was to cook a baked potato as a snack. I used the "easy features" on the device and selected "potato" (even watched the DVD they include with the oven) the default time was 45minutes.. at the end of the cycle, the potato wasn't even half cooked so I put it in for another 10 minutes and it still was not fully cooked. This was the last straw. Why? Cause obviously you have to play with this thing in order to get the "true" correct timing for cooking certain foods. Not worth it. For $140 this thing needs to perform as advertised, I don't have time and money to waste (threw out the potato) trying to figure out how long I need to cook food. I cleaned the machine and packed it up and drove 62 miles to the closest Black and Decker store and returned it for a full refund.Read more ›

I love the InfraWave oven. I make toast, warm up food & best of all cook meat. The time for warming foods on the menu is correct. Read morePublished on September 6, 2009 by Florence Bonavia
For warming it works pretty well and heats up fast. If you want it for more than occasional toasting (sliced bread) it does NOT do a good job. Read morePublished on June 22, 2009 by RideRed
