The Infomercial Product I Can’t Live Without

I don’t usually go ga-ga over appliances but never say ‘never’.

It all started 2-years ago with a phone call from my mom…


Yeah mom.

Your dad and I bought an oven from tv do you want it?

You bought an oven from tv? Ummm no thanks.

But it’s nice. You’ll like it.

We don’t have room for it mom. Thanks though.”

YES it cooks frozen food!

A few days after that call I went to visit my brother in Northern California and he had the very same oven my mom was trying to give us. I laughed “You let mom sucker you into that thing?!”

My brother said it was pretty cool and that I should give it a try. So that’s what I did. I test drove this thing for a week while I was there. The very first thing we threw in was a rack of ribs. I mumbled under my breath “we’re not gonna eat until an hour” as I set the oven and let ‘er rip.

30-minutes is all it took and the ribs were done! I was like “whaaaat?” Not only were they done but they were really juicy and tasty. I thought it was a fluke, so I committed to putting this thing through the ringer and made dinner every night.

Lamb chops, grass fed steaks, burgers, pork chops, salmon fillets, chicken breast and even FROZEN chicken drumsticks ALL came out quick and delicious.

AGGHHH! I could feel the tide turning. I could cook things fast. I didn’t have to wait to defrost stuff. I was starting to like this thing.

After my one-week visit I flew back home to So-Cal and tucked my tail between my legs and called my mom.


Hi son.

Uh do you still have that oven you wanted to give us?

Why? You want in now?

Only if you still have it. I tried it out at Mike’s and it’s pretty good.

See I told you you’d want it. Ya, it’s in the garage. You better come get it this weekend because your aunty saw it and said she wanted it.

No don’t give it to her. We’ll be there this weekend.”

And that’s how I came to be the proud owner of my first NuWave oven. I used it everyday to make healthy meals. We stopped cooking with our oven and quite often didn’t even use our stove. If it was a car it would have been like driving it a hundred miles a day. That thing was a work-horse.

Like lots of things you use hard everyday, things are bound to break. That sad day came a few months ago when I went to turn on my NuWave for some pork chops and it wouldn’t turn on.

I reset the outlet, checked the plug and nothing but silence and cold pork chops. I was like “NO it’s dead! How am I gonna cook?” I was a little freaked out about the situation.

I know you can order from the company but I didn’t want to wait for delivery. Bed Bath and Beyond had them on their website but didn’t carry them in-store where I could use my 20% off coupon. “AGGGGHHH!”

I’m not sure why, but I typed Kohls into my browser and there it was – NuWave Pro in-stock and in-store. No waiting? Heck yeah, get in the car let’s go.

Now that the balance has been restored and I’m on my 2nd oven you can bet I’m gonna run this one into the ground as well. If you don’t have a lot of time like lots of my boot camp clients in Santa Clarita, it’s the perfect thing for cooking at home. Please don’t be a knuckle-head like me and poo-poo it. Just go try it. It may end up being something you can’t live without too.
