Tonight we are trying something different that I have not tried before. We got a Nuwave cooker for our wedding last May and it can apparently cook all kinds of things from pizza to fish to veggies. It can even cook up to a 16 pound turkey... or at least it gives directions for a 16 pound turkey. Tonight to test it we are cooking baked potatoes in it. Anyone else try or have used one of these things?

I put a frozen turkey in it yesterday afternoon and we had it for supper. From frozen in less than three hours.

@esfes025 If you are inventive you can cook almost anything in it. Sometimes I put the dinner rolls or morning biscuits in it to bake. You have to use the right rack and know what needs a bit of tin foil to protect the top.

@Rollo1 yeah, I was noticing this as I was looking through the manual. You can even make dips in it.

I never heard of one before. It would be interesting to see how a turkey turns out in one.

Turkey and whole chickens come out wonderful. I have had mine for more than a year now.

@Auntylou It uses infrared and convection. So things do cook underneath but if you want both sides to brown then you do have to flip things. Not turkeys though.

I think I"ve seen those ovens on infomercials but haven't ever paid much attention. Would be interested to know how well it works

They work great. As I stated, less than three hours to cook a frozen turkey. Completely frozen. It came out great. It's nice to decide suddenly that you want to cook that frozen meat or bird and not have to wait days for it to thaw.

I cooked a 12.5 pound turkey from frozen in it yesterday in about 3 hours. It wouldn't have taken that long, but I had to keep checking it until I could get the neck and giblets out. After than I simply let it run until the pop up timer popped. The per pound times given in the book are pretty accurate. I use mine all the time because it takes so much less electricity to run than the oven and it's a much smaller thing to clean than a big roasting pan.

I heard of the NuWave cooker and seen the infomercial. But I never got me one. I thought about it. I might get one down the road. It seems like a a nice cooker.
