Most of the time, the portions are too small to justify firing up the oven/range or to hop outside and clean then get the charcoal grill going. So, if I need to bake, broil, "grill", or roast, I use our new Super Wave Oven. I like this appliance and use it more than I do our oven and the small convection toaster oven.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
* does not burn what it is I am cooking;
* does not fill my house with the smell of burning grease;
* cooks very quickly and evenly;
* no burnt-on grease (carbonized grease);
* easy to use;
* almost a "set-it-and-forget-it" cooking appliance;
* takes up less counter space than my toaster oven.
WHAT I THINK OTHERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT BEFORE BUYING:
___ The glass is HEAVY so care needs to be taken so that it doesn't slip from your hands during cleaning. It isn't impossibly manageable as some have asserted. Like everything else in your kitchen just be careful when you're handling it while it's wet. I rinse it with hot water and then wipe it immediately. The hot water warms the glass and will cause any water remaining after I've wiped it to evaporate quickly. This reduces the chance of it slipping from my hands.
___ Don't worry about grease on the cooking top--just wipe it with a warm, wet cloth. The remaining grease won't hurt it. Think about it, how do you clean your electric deep fryer?
___ Buy a pair of tongs along with this if your kitchen doesn't already have them. The tongs will allow you to work with your dish without fear of burning yourself when you're reaching into the glass bowl to move things around during cooking. Think about, how do you keep yourself from being burned when you're checking on your turkey or removing your dishes from a traditional oven?
___ You'll need a safe place on which to set down the hot cover/heating element while you work with the dish you're cooking. When the range top is not available because I'm cooking something else, I set the Super Wave Oven cover/top on either a wooden cutting board or an "air" cookie sheet.
WHAT I'VE FOUND OUT ABOUT COOKING WITH THIS APPLIANCE:
___ You may need to vary the temperature during the cooking depending on the dish. For example: I started the ham at a lower temperature and when it is near the temperature that I want, I increase the temperature of the oven.
___ I still use oil when "air" frying. The oil helps to fry the dish but doesn't get hot enough to burn.
___ I need to turn the bacon when I'm cooking it. But the house does not smell like bacon grease when I'm done!
___ Like everything else in the kitchen--if not life itself--preparation is the key ingredient!
WHAT I AM NERVOUS ABOUT:
___ The halogen, heating element. I am worried about the "filament" breaking from a slight bump or shake to the cover. I'm hoping that it was manufactured to a sturdy standard (like "super tough" duty or something like that).
___ I hope the plastic base is malleable enough to withstand a drop from the counter top. There are no rubberized grips or stubs that keep it from sliding around the counter.
No preheating necessary. Great for quick lunches.
Roasted veggies came out great.
Frozen convenience foods (pizza rolls, egg rolls, quesadillas) came out as desired.
The whole chicken that I roasted was moist and flavorful. It cooked in about 40 minutes.
Deceptively advertises that food retains moisture. NOT true of all foods, even when using the scanty selection of recipes included with the oven.
Difficult and cumbersome to clean.
Stopped working after 123 days...and I had to pay $25 to send it back to 400 Returns Road, Wallingford, CT (if a company has a street named after it "Returns Road", that should be a clue to steer clear).
The customer service number included in the box redirected me to two different telephone numbers before I could reach a human...and quite possibly the rudest human on the east coast. After discussing at length why it was necessary that I return the ENTIRE unit when only the electronic part was defective, she relented but gave me a bogus return zip code. The "error" was caught by my friendly local postal clerk. On investigation through Google, it seems that this is a tactic that this company uses to deter you from sending back their defective products.
That was only yesterday that I contacted the company, and today I received TWO solicitation calls for other products through this company. NO THANK YOU. Hopefully, I will get my replacement mailed to me without incident and it will work forever and ever. Yeah, I know...wishful thinking.
UPDATE OCTOBER 21, 2012: The replacement that they sent to me worked for five months. I called the company to tell them that this was the SECOND defective unit and was forwarded to a supervisor. After a fruitless day of waiting for a return phone call, I called the company again. As expected, they said "Send it back for a replacement". No thank you. I'll keep my $25 in shipping. It is amazing that this defective product is still being sold. What a shame, since the concept is terrific and I did enjoy the results of the oven while it worked. Bottom line: The Sharper Image is in financial trouble for a reason. Keep your money until they figure out that quality is important for success.

Quick and easy way to cook fresh or frozen. Just don't break the bowl as there are no replacements
