    I have not used one yet, but can definitely see the advantages of cooking with infrared sources especially if the cooking times are drastically reduced as claimed.

    He said his 6 oz chicken breast from frozen to cooked in 15 min.

    He said he tossed his Foreman grill after using this

    Got one for free, it's awesome, I cook all of my meat in it. In fact, I rarely season meat anymore because it tastes so good.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    It makes sure you don't overcook your meat, which happens with grilling. This reduces the production of Advanced Glycation Endproducts.

    I have one of these in my basement Cure-Tek Short Wave Infrared Curing Light - S1000 and might have to pull it out for my next chicken breast.

    Holy shit, I forgot that it takes much less time, that is definitely true. I haven't used my regular oven in forever so I forgot it took 40 minutes to cook chicken in it.

    I broil my chicken breasts fast enough for me, slice in half to even thickness and broil each side 8-10 minutes.... I do a whole cookie sheet worth...

    How is the clean up?
    How much can you put in there at one time? I always cook 6 very large chicken breasts at one time in the oven. (I swear these chickens are on test and tren).

    You can probably fit 4 chicken breast in it. Clean up is a bit of a pain, but worth it. Still, it only takes about 2 mins to clean it if you let it soak for 5.

    Broiling I can do 8 breasts sliced in half thin, aluminum foil underneath and I use the rack so heat gets beneath the foil as well. Clean up is rinsing the foil and tossing it in the recycle bin....

    (mini) Nu Wave Oven review

    The unit has arrived and I have cooked chicken and steak with it...

    This thing was as easy to use as a microwave. You just put the meat on the grill tray and cover it with the top dome. Set the digital timer and sit back...

    No smoke comes out of the unit while cooking at all. It is practically silent. The meat came out flavorful and juicy. Better tasting than on my pan or foreman grill...

    I put the meat on foil on the grill for an easier cleaning. To clean I just tossed the foil and cleaned the dome cover in soapy water. The only negatives are that it took a little longer to cook than what the cheat sheet says, but it was no big deal. I just added 5 extra min. You also have to flip the meat half way through cooking...

    The unit also beeps when it's ready just like a microwave. It took about 20 min. for chicken breast (10 min. each side) and 15 min. for the steak (medium)...

    Side note- The chicken had a salty, juicy, moist flavor that has never been present cooking on a pan. It almost tasted as if it was was seasoned, but it wasn't...

    I also loved the fact that my house does not smell like chicken after cooking...


    Pros
    No pre heating required
    No smoke
    No smell
    No noise
    set it and forget it
    beeps when ready
    meat retained juices and salts
    easy clean (with foil under meat)

    Cons
    Takes a little longer to cook than stated times
    You have to flip meat half way through

    I must say for the nu wave oven

    That's my favorite part.

    I have had one for 6 months. Chicken breast, steaks and fish on this thing are unreal. So freaking good. I have never had a chicken titty be so juicy before. I really dreaded choking down a dried chicken breast in the past. My boy said this was a lifesaver and a time saver.
    If you are a single guy or a married bro and you and your wife are too damn busy to cook all the time, this is your answer.
