View Full Version : Alternative to Microwaving...

12-06-2004, 05:02 AM
I just saw an infomercial for Nu-Wave Oven Pro and wondered if anyone had an opinion on it? It seems to be much quicker and healthier than conventional oven cooking, and does not use microwave (instead uses infrared heat).

I'm sure most of you have read the articles on how microwaving destroys nutrients and could increase carcinogens, free radicals, radiation, etc. in the body (even on low-energy settings), so I'm looking for a safe--but quick & easy--alternative to microwave cooking.

I'm about to start increasing my protein intake with much more meat than I'm currently getting, and I really want to take the best route for my food preparation.

Don't fear the microwave -- fear-mongering infomercials are hardly reputable sources of information.

So you guys use the microwave as your preferred method of cooking, say, your oatmeal in the morning? If so, do you use the highest power setting?
