You really haven't lived in Southwest Florida until you've experience having to cook your dinner one at a time for fear of running both the George Foreman Grill & microwave simultaneously and shorting out the kitchen. Meals have a tendency to be quick, bagged, light and consumed in phases - often while listening to Fox News' The Five . It makes for argumentative dinner conversation. I know my grandfather's looking at the NuWave so he can have more freedom in the kitchen when the family isn't around. He could do a lot worse. It's getting more press coverage than Honey Boo Boo and it comes from the long-standing NuWave brand of ovens. But before I see him put his George Foreman grill next to his Perfect Pancake next to his Schticky in the kitchen pantry, I told him to let me take a sneak peak at the product first. Below is what I found for him...

What Is the NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop 2?

From the timeless induction method of cooking, the NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop is the versatile, portable cooker that claims to be the one stop solution for fast, efficient, healthy cooking. It can make steaks, fried food, soups & chili as well as grilled fish. All the things one would want for a prolonged life. And it's fun to watch cook. Have a fetish for it? Put it on the table while surfing the net. It's like having a fishbowl, but, you know, it's cooking stuff and smells great - unless you picked liver.

Does the NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop Work? Review of Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process:  At the time we reviewed this, it was JW Greenshet's #1 most TV-advertised product in the US. It's going to have complaints. Right now, the majority of those complaints reside in the order process. Most people don't seem to put the math together when adding up the 3 payments and the shipping and processing price. They've littered the complaint sites with them. Also, that second free, BOGO (buy one, get one) dos have a shipping & processing cost so make sure you have your calculator handy. And if you decide to buy "2," you'll be buying 2 sets...aka 4 of them. Make sure you do the math and you should be good to go. If you want to skip the hassle, check out Amazon (official affiliate link) . The prices 1 price, shipping and handling is spelled out nicely. And if you want to go hogwild, you can compare them with others. Further reading on the order process:

Product Performance:  The cool thing about the product is that nobody's bitching about the product. They bitch more about the price. The reviews we read had good things to say regarding the performance and anticipated use of the NuWave PIC. Customers are looking forward to a more even cooking of their food. It's enough to make me hungry late into the evening. Further reading on product performance:

Final Thoughts - What to Expect

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

Review - InstaBulb w/ Anthony Sullivan - Another Classic My Grandfather Used

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
