Black & Decker InfraWave
The Pros:Browns/crisps the outside, unlike a microwave. More energy efficient than a regular toaster oven. Faster than a regular toaster oven.
The Cons:Can leave the inside uncooked/cool/frozen. Stainless interior can be tough to clean. Quess I was lucky it worked 18 months. Infawave burned out, useless now. I really loved it & was proud I had a good dependable toaster/oven. I told a lot of people about this oven. Such a shame.
The Black & Decker InfraWave claims to cook up to 50% faster with no pre-heating. It uses infrared radiation to cook the food, allowing for faster cooking times more similar to microwaves than ovens.

It has a capacity of 0.7 cu. ft, a digital touch pad, a digital display and a slide out crumb tray. The especially unique aspects of the InfraWave are its ability to 'know' how to cook your food based on the settings you choose.
Input what you're cooking (potatoes, lasagna, chicken, etc.) and the InfraWave oven sets the cook time and temperature. You can even set the oven to alert you at different cook times, depending on style you want. For instance, you can choose 'regular' and 'crispy' and then the oven will alert you when the cook time is done for regular and alert you again when the cook time is done for crispy. There are a variety of preset options available as well so you're not clamoring for the ideal choice.
The InfraWave works by using infrared technology and changes wavelengths depending on what you're cooking. The oven is not a microwave since it uses the higher-energy infrared radiation rather than microwave radiation. The use of infrared makes it a closer cousin to the conventional convection oven.

This product did a good job toasting, and reheating.

Quess I was lucky it worked 18 months. Infawave burned out, useless now. I really loved it & was proud I had a good dependable toaster/oven. I told a lot of people about this oven. Such a shame.
Cannot set time or temp! only presets are available, cannot even roast p-nuts, humbug
Infrawave element can overheat causing the front glass to literally explode. Company's way of fixing this - no refund because it was used but they will send another bomb your way
Most completely (over 90% of trials) useless device. You are left to your own devices to figure out how to cook dishes that do not fit their pre-programmed menu. Most often results in blackened exterior and ice rock interior. DO NOT DO NOT buy this unless you are a scientist looking to study infrared absorption. Your girl/boyfriend will leave you if you prepare her/him food with this thing.
