Product Description

Amazon.com

Using the patented "Cyclonic" method of cooking, this jet-stream oven cooks as quickly as a microwave but produces baked goods and meats with excellent browning, moisture, texture, and taste as you get from cooking in a convection oven. Similar to convection cooking, the jet-stream oven has a fan that spins at 4,000 rpm to produce fast and delicious results whether browning Cornish game hens, baking oatmeal bars, making bite-size appetizers, or cooking a combo meal of meat and vegetables. This tabletop appliance is also more energy efficient than a standard oven and can fit a fair amount of food on its two 13-1/2-inch-diameter circular nonstick racks. The bottom rack operates in either an upper or lower position while the top rack provides additional cooking space and deflects air when cooking lightweight foods. A nonstick liner underneath the racks catches any drips from food and prevents the base from heating up too much. A see-through lid provides excellent visibility of food as it cooks. Home chefs can even buy external expander rings for this product (sold separately) to double or even triple the jet-stream oven’s capacity to cook foods as large as a 20-pound turkey (requires three rings). The jet-stream oven has nine different temperature settings, two fan settings, and a digital timer that can be set to cook for up to 3 hours. The outside of this appliance is made of safe and durable, heat-resistant plastic and the whole unit weighs only 10 pounds, making it portable enough to pack up and bring along in a car or RV. This innovative oven is covered by a 1-year limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

This is the third Jet Stream we have owned. They generally last 2 years or so. Ours gets at least daily use. The food cooked in it is terrific, usually in 1/3 the time. We like it because it cooks the food quick and without heating up the kitchen. We like the way it stands up to conserve counter space. However since we use it on the daily basis - its like the toaster, remains out and ready to use.
This model is nice and quiet, however we have noticed that they have done away with the interior light, the base, and amber shell are lighter than predessors. It would be nicer if they would improve the racks to make them easier to clean. They are not the hardest thing to clean, but it would be nicer if they improved upon.
Since the unit is lighter, I don't know if this unit will last the two years typically our Jet Streams last.

I should have taken the advice of all of the negative reviews, but I figured that the average person treats their appliances with so little respect, that most of the problems they had were probably their own fault.
We went ahead and bought a Jet-Stream Oven from Amazon and it got here much sooner than we thought. Amazon is great. We had such high hopes for the Jet-Stream Oven, but the various things we cooked in it didn't taste any better than cooking it in a regular oven and it took much longer to cook than expected.
The Jet-Stream Oven was a disappointment, but since it's much easier to clean than an oven, doesn't heat up the whole house, and doesn't stink up the place, we thought it was still worth the money. Then on the 5th day, it just stopped working. The display light went out, it was dead. We treated that thing gently too.
I was worried by all of the reports about the plastic cracking, but I didn't even expect it would die on us in less than a week. We only used it a few times, so it wasn't overworked. We were shocked, but at least Amazon sent us a free shipping label by e-mail, and it's now on the way back to them. Amazon said it might take a couple of weeks before we get our money refunded, but that's not so bad. At least we are getting our money back.
Before you buy the Jet-Stream Oven or any other product, make sure you read through the reviews and don't discount them. I know there are some negative reviews about various products sold by Amazon that look suspicious as if they are employees of a rival company or they are ham-handed oafs that destroy everything they touch, but those reviews are pretty easy to weed out. In this case, it seems like the Jet-Stream Oven won't be worth the money until Nesco makes more improvements to it. The Jet-Stream Oven is a great idea though and I hope Nesco fixes the problems before their reputation gets so damaged that they won't be able to recover no matter how much they improve the product in the future.

Verified Purchase
I had one of the original Jet Stream's when they first came out, which over time gave up the ghost. Then they were hard to find. The newest incarnation is very good. It has the digital timer and temp control. Direct drive motor so no belt to worry about, and the cleaning is the same as the original. I wish Amazon would carry some accessories like the lid extenders. The Jet Stream cooks chicken like nothing else, the skin gets paperthin and crispy, but the meat stays moist. If you want crisp outsides on frozen convenience food (ie eggrolls, fish sticks, chicken wings) this appliance will to it. Like a deep fryer, but no frying necessary. It also does a great job with refrigerator biscuits and cresent rolls. They get fluffier in the Jet Stream. The instruction book is easy to follow. I also think it is an energy conserver because you are not using a big heated oven for smaller jobs.

UPDATE: This version of Jet Stream did not last a year (it died twice with light usage), even with one trip to Nesco for warranty service. The electronics seems to fry easily. Skip this one. Buy a vintage one on eBay, the worst repair you'll have to do is a belt. Wish I could change my 5 stars to 0 stars. Hot air convection cooking still rates 5 stars, but not the JS-4000T.

CAVEAT EMPTOR. While my jet stream oven was great while it lasted, the motor or "control arm" for it BROKE less than a month after the 1 yr. warranty expired-- and this with only very moderate use during that year, maybe 3 or 4 times a week. When I called Nesco, I was told that one year's life expectancy was about "normal" for small appliances, which basically meant that they don't expect their product to outlast the warranty. There was nothing I could do short of buying an entirely new oven (you can't buy a replacement "control arm"). How many of us would willingly spend $130 for an appliance whose manufacturer thinks this way? My GE microwave had a 1 yr warranty, too, but it's been working over 10 years without incident. I would advise all those who are willing to spend $130 on a disposable item to go ahead. Everyone else should wait until they offer an extended warranty.

I bought the Jet-Stream Oven about two weeks ago and am generally pleased with its performance. I'm glad that the 4000 has a direct-drive motor that avoids the problems with their previous model, the 1500, that was plagued with drive belt failures. My intent was to replace an old Welbilt Convection Oven that has lasted almost 10 years, except that the control knob fell off years ago and I have to use a butter knife to turn it on and off (but then, that's another review). On the plus side, it does indeed do things like cook fish sticks in 8-9 minutes versus 30 minutes in a standard oven and it cooks a frozen pizza in 12 minutes instead of 25-30 minutes. On the down side, the fan is so powerful that it rips pepperoni and sausage off of the surface of a frozen pizza and eventually throws them onto the base tray where they get burned after they are thrown, loudly, all over the interior. And, don't even think about putting toast or a bagel in this oven; anything that isn't heavy is thrown all over the oven and ricochets off the fan and heating element while it cooks (even on low fan speed). So, yes it does cook heavier foods much faster than even a convection oven, but don't even think about putting bagels, frozen waffles, or anything lighter than chicken into in. Overall, and this is based on two weeks of use, it's just acceptable. Beware of high prices for any accessories. Accept it for what it is and don't expect to cook anything taller than 2-3 inches without expensive accessories and turn up the TV when you cook: this thing is LOUD.
