|There is a new kitchen appliance that makes baking, grilling and other cooking chores faster and easier than ever before. Called an Infrawave oven, it uses infrared light technology to make cooking and baking up to 50% faster than with a conventional oven, a toaster oven or even a microwave.
The oven uses a higher frequency infrared lightwave to cook food and this results in brown and crispy foods where a microwave sometimes yields bland versions of the same dish. Meats are cooked on the inside and the outside at the same time. Chef-quality is how the food has been described by folks tasting it. The Infraware oven is more like a small convection oven than it is to a microwave.
The oven actually sends out two different types of infrared waves. The first are shorter, high frequency waves that cooks the surface of the food to make the food crispy. The other type are long, lower frequency waves that cook the inner sections of the food. What results are professional, chef-quality prepared fish, poultry and meats cooked in almost half the time a conventional oven would take. Your family will be enjoying faster and healthier meals in less time than ever before.
There`s no preheating or thawing needed either. The Infrawave oven takes care of that as well. What a time-saving convenience that is. In fact, many frozen foods are completely cooked in under 20 minutes.
Not much larger than a toaster oven, the unit is small and compact with a footprint of only 15 inches wide by 14 inches deep.
It has a capacity of 0.7 cubic feet with inside dimensions of 10-5/16 inches x 11 inches x 6 inches tall. The oven is also equipped with a digital touch pad, a digital display and a slide out crumb tray. The especially unique aspects of the Infrawave are its ability to "know" how to cook your food based on the settings you choose. The unit is equipped with a touchpad that you use to program the oven for whatever type of food you are preparing.
You simply input the type of food that you`re going to cook (steak, chicken, lasagna, potatoes, etc.) and the Infrawave oven automatically sets the cooking temperature and time. You can even set the oven to alert you at different cooking times, depending on the style of cooking you want.
For example, you can choose `regular` and `crispy` and then when the cooking time is done for the regular cycle, the oven will alert you and then when the cooking time is done for the crispy cycle it will alert you once again. There are a number of different preset options available as well so you won`t be stuck looking for the perfect choice.
You don`t need special cooking dishware either; any cookware that is suitable for a conventional oven is acceptable to use including ovenproof dishes without lids or metal or ceramic cookware. You need to make certain to keep the cookware and the food you`re cooking at least one inch away from the upper heating elements.
All in all, any modern well-equipped kitchen will benefit from the addition of this appliance with its ability to produce chef-quality foods in less time than ever called the Infrawave oven.
