NUWAVE Induction Cooktop Review

NUWAVE Induction Cooktop Review

If you have made it to this review today, chances are you have heard of the NUWAVE induction cooktop. I could not resist writing this review because I used this in college and still use it at home.

The cooktop moves away from the traditional methods of cooktop cooking, such as electric or gas. Induction cooktops use a magnetic field to induce electrical current into the pot, which causes the heating. NUWAVE has made this single eye option for entry level cooking. It is great for several scenarios and allows customers to test induction cooking.

As with any product there are pros and cons. This review is not going to be an extension of the commercials that you see. But it will start with the pros of the unit involved.


  • Heating capability: Induction cooktops rival gas on their ability to heat rapidly. The NUWAVE offers up to 52 different temperature settings. It also offers 6 presets which make cooking very easy! They also are up to 70% more efficient than traditional fuel methods which means lower energy costs $$!
  • Safety: Induction cooktops are very safe to use and the NUWAVE is no exception. When a pot is removed from the NUWAVE the unit automatically turns off. This is due to the magnetic field being broken. This makes it extremely safe around children. Imagine replacing a warming plate with the NUWAVE around the dinner table. It gives peace of mind know that it will not be as likely to burn someone.
  • Ease of Use: The controls are push button with LED displays, and are located conveniently at the front. Just press the appropriate button and you’re away.
  • Storage: If you are like me in college you did not have a stove in the dorms. This is where the NUWAVE came in very handy. I was able to cook (safely) and not have to worry about where to put the unit because it fits in almost any cabinet. It also made cleanup a breeze due to its smaller size (no more dirty cooktops).


  • Heat Control: Induction cooking is very safe due to the automatic turn off. However, this also makes it difficult to control temperature when trying to flip or move the pan. Once the pan is removed the heat has to be manually turned back on when it is set back down.
  • Pan Selection: Induction cooktops require special pans in order to work properly. This prevents a customer from being able to use cast iron. It also means that if you do not have pans that will work, you will have to go buy new ones.

The Conclusion:

The NUWAVE oven is a great entry level or college cooktop for those looking to get into induction cooking. It offers great safety and versatility at an affordable price. In fact, if you buy it from Amazon you can choose between 20 – 30 merchants who sell it for less than NUWAVE does on their own website!
