    Hi, msanne!

    The difference is that the Smartwave is a microwave, while the NuWave uses infrared heat to cook with.

    The Smartwave has a UPC scanner on the front of it that scans the UPC sticker on the back of the food you are wanting to cook. The microwave then searches it's database (upgradeable by CD-rom) and determines the time required to cook that particular food and instructs you to open the door and insert the food.

    I hope this helps your decision. icon_biggrin.gif

    I got one of these for Christmas and am cooking my first roast tonight.

    Here's the thing though...it's a 6.5lb roast which means it needs 110-120 minutes to cook. The oven's timer only goes to 60. Is there no way to just turn the oven on and have it cook until I'm ready to turn if off?

    Having to reset it once for my roast isn't too big of a hassle. 7 times for a 16lb frozen turkey though would be a pain.

    Am I missing something?

    Hi, jKarlen! wave.gif

    Forgive me, but which oven did you get for Christmas? This thread is titled "Super Wave Oven", but the OP was inquiring about the differences between the NuWave and the SmartWave.

    Even though I won't be able to answer your particular question, if we nail down which oven you're using, we might get another chef who can. icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh, but I can sympathize with your predicament. When I have to use both my home ovens at the same time (holidays, etc.) and one needs a long bake time, I get frustrated that none of my timers will do more than 60 minutes and I have to keep coming back every hour and remembering (the hardest part!) how many hours I have left to go. icon_confused.gif

    When you put the handle in down position, there is a small spring activated lever on top that slides to the side until the handle clicks into lock position. Then the power and heat indicators will come on.

    I just got my Super Wave Oven. After reading several posts here on others experiences and one or two other sites I tried it for the first time last night. I wanted sweet potato fries so I preheated it at 400 for 20 minutes as the instructions state. Set the timer to 15 minutes and the temp to 400. Good thing I keep watch closely. (mostly curious to watch it work) and they were done in 5 minutes! I think next time I might try cooking them without preheating. Just to see what happenes. I am also going to buy sweet potatoes and slice them up and try them fresh. icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, cageybird! icon_eek.gif 5 minutes?! Good thing you were keeping an eye on them.
    Congratulations on your new gadget and thanks for sharing your experience with us.

    I'll be very interested to hear how your test variations turn out. Are you going to try the frozen fries again without preheating and then try the fresh fries with and without a preheat?

    Yes. In fact I tried fresh fries this morning. Did not pre heat this time and cooked for 15 minutes @ 400 degrees. They turned out OK but not crispy. I also Cooked 4 frozen whole grain waffles and they were great. Cooked in about half the time. Think I'll try again with pre heating. Also going to try a chicken breast (thawed out first) as I want to season it first. I'm hopping to be able to replace my microwave and toaster oven. icon_biggrin.gif

    Great! Sounds like you just might love the experimenting and testing of new products as much as I do. icon_lol.gif

    These are such good facts to know and I know there are many other chefs out there that could use this information to get better results. Thanks again for taking the time to share it with us. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks for the encouragement. I'm a survival cook. Which means, If I don't cook, I don't eat. But I love gadgets. I tried the fresh sweet potato fries and pre heated the SWO before hand. They turned out ok but not crispy at all. Thinking I might spray them with a little pam first next time. I did try the chicken breast and it was very dry. I put it on the top rack like the instructin book says to do. I think next time I will put it on the bottom rack and try again. I tried pork steaks and did put them on the bottom rack. I pre heated the oven at 400 for 20 minutes. placed the steaks in and cooked for 18 minutes at 400. Had to turn them at about 10 minutes. They tast great.

    You're so welcome! I'm really enjoying hearing all about your experience with the Super Wave. It's always such a relief when I have to Google a question and find that not only am I not the only person to have that question, but that they or someone else took the time to post the solution or answer.

    Your tests will be very helpful to someone. icon_biggrin.gif

    I tried the chicken brest again and this time put it on the bottom rack. It worked out great. Nice and juicy. I've been really busy this week so haven't had time to try anything else just yet.

    Hmmm... the chicken was dry when it was on top rack, but juicy when cooked on the bottom.
    I'm really wishing I had one of these ovens. It sounds like maybe it's flip-flopped from a standard electric oven, which cooks hotter on the bottom rack than on the top.
    That's another really useful tip.
