Time and Energy Efficiency
Pressed for time or funds but looking to prepare a meal that is a grade above your usual fast-food or microwaved meal? While the Elite Dome Oven performs the tasks and capabilities of your average range, it actually saves you time and energy costs in the process.

Therefore, it uses up to 85 percent less energy significantly lessens the burden on your electric bill.
Design and Ease-of-Use
Part of the stress of meal preparation comes from the difficulty of navigating complex control panels on appliances to get things just right. One small slip-up can ruin an entire meal. The Elite Dome Oven’s design considers this and remedies it. For those overwhelmed by the long row of dials and buttons on a conventional oven, the Elite’s digital panel and button pads are a welcome component, conveniently and compactly located on the very top of the appliance. You can easily control the temperature in one degree increments from 100 degrees all the way up to 420 degrees Fahrenheit using the simple number pad.
The NuWave Elite’s Power Head also boasts a programming feature that allows you to program your favorite recipes into its memory, holding an impressive 100 recipes or more. The simple, intuitive design of the panel and buttons put the preparation of that higher grade meal within easy reach.
The unique NuWave Power Dome design allows for the circulation that results in quick and even cooking. It also allows you to keep easy tabs on the contents of the oven without the craning and peaking that a conventional oven requires. The amber dome that comes with this model is shatter-resistant and BPA free. If any of your NuWave Oven parts is broken, you do not have to buy the new oven. You can easily find a new part on the internet.
