Nuwave Oven - Great idea - Crappy product

157 of 1060 Nuwave Oven reviews

I like the idea behind this oven, and have used one at least 4 times per week for 5 years.The problem is, I've had to buy three ovens.

The first was mechanical (twist timer, not electronic). That head is actually still working. I replaced it because the see through dome was cracking after 4 years. The second one was the newer electronic unit.

The head failed after 8 months. I put the old head on the new dome (which was already cracking) and got another 5 months out of it until it actually fell apart in three pieces one day. The head is still okay. The third (and final - I'll never buy from this scam company again) went into service two weeks ago.

There's a crack in it already. I have not used the supplied dome rest in at least 4 years. I believed it was a poor design, and caused the disintigration of the first dome.

If you think you need one of these, research your purchase.There must be someone else out there making something similar.

I will be picking up a new powerhead and replacement dome tomorrow. The company's customer service department contacted me as a result of this posting. The rep, Brenda, had just one mission. To make things right. I'm still concerned that I had to pay part of the cost for the upgraded dome, and I'm still bothered that the inferior dome was ever allowed to make it to market At this point in time, I'm happy with the outcome. Whether or not the new and improved dome lasts longer than the original, that remains to be seen.

Seems to me you should be offering them the replacement free since they've bought THREE of your machines already all with the same defect.
