In Dec 2007 I purchased a Nu Wave Oven Pro.I use it once each day.

It is now May 29 and today I just received the second replacement dome because the first 2 domes developed large cracks, just from normal use. I complained to the seller who told me that the dome I received today was going to be heavier. Well it isnt heavier it is exactly the same as the last 2 domes, made of plastic!! I would never have purchased the oven if I knew that the dome is made of plastic.

It cannot endure high temperatures.

Don't buy it!!! The dome will crack and melt due to regular use and just to replace the plastic dome.. it will cost $47 plus shipping and handling. :roll

I have a nuwave, had it for the past 7 years and we also use it almost everyday. The dome got cracked - but it was still usable even cracked. recently it got a second crack and now is melting - problem is no one can supply me with a replacement dome. The company says they do not export to my country - funny how they exported the oven to South Africa how else did we get to buy it. If anyone can help me find someone that can supply me with a replacement I will be happy to buy it vaaldamprop@gmail.com

I like so many other users have the dome cracked in many places.
I called several times and always got the ' because of heavy volume of calls please leave a message'. Well, I Ieft several messages and got no return call. They shipping cost is a rippoff! I will look for another brand that has glass for a dome. If you stick with Nu wave be ready to shell out $30.00 or more every 12 - 18 months. That to me is not
cost effective.

I have bought two Nu Wave ovens , one for me and one for my daughter. I use mine a lot because I love it specially to make roasted chicken but the dome is broken and I've tried to send comments to the company and they never responded. I wish I could by a glass dome because I am afraid to keep wasting money in buying another plastic dome that will end up cracking just like the other two. I like the oven but I would not recomended it to anybody because of the dome problem , unless they can replace the dome for a glass one. Now I have practically new oven without that soon I would not be able to use because of the cracks in the dome are getting two big . :cry

The company should take a very good look at their product. I have the same problem with my dome cracking. I have replace it 3 times and every time I call customer service they're saying that it could be the way I'm taking care of it. That's bulls...

i would like to say i have injoyed my nu wave very much i got it in 2010 and i do have to say it does have a glass dome,now for the plastic dome owners you might require about changing from plastic to glass it might cost you a little but it will be worth it .thanks nu wave 8)

have had the same problem with plastic dome cracking , if there is a glass dome available where can it be purchased. don't have the money to shell out for another plastic dome that will crack too.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to write about there 'nu wave'. You helped me make up my mind, and not order one. I started to buy one a year ago,for $99.00 than saw a infomercial, the other day, where know there offering, buy one get one free, for the same $99.00! That made me raise my eyebrow, and start searching out customer comments, so glade I did!! Thank you again.

I'm VERY disappointed by the quality of Nuwave.Oven is in perfect working condition, but plastic dome is peace of junk,have cracked after 1 year of normal use. Now I have to buy the dome from the manufacturer over and over again and pay for shipping as much as dome cost itself. I'll never recommend Nuwave to my friends. Now I'm looking for similar oven with glass dome. I came back from Europe cjuple of months ago, I haven't seen these ovens with plastic.

I was seriously thinking of buying a Nu Wave. Glad I found this site. Guess I'll stick w/the "old fashioned" way.

My dome is doing the same. Followed their directions of care, yet, the company needs to find a corrective material in making the dome, then replace defective ones at no charge! :cry
