NuWave Induction Hobs

"Produce! Produce!
Were it but the pitifullest infintesimal fraction
of a product, produce it in God's name!
'Tis the utmost thou hast in thee: out with it, then."

—Thomas Carlyle

General NuWave Information

NuWave started life in 1997 as Hearthware Home Products, Inc.; the "NuWave" name seems to have started in 2002.

NuWave markets very aggressively by way of infomercials of the "Act Now!" variety, and a pushy site that is roughly an infomercial on a web page. (Or rather, a series of infomercials, as they have a number of products that, if you believe them, are the only thing to even consider buying.) Perhaps it is not fair to judge the product by how it is marketed, but there seem to be a number of consumer complaints out there about the remarkably high costs (the inevitable "S&H") of the "free" cookware that comes with some products. Judge for yourself, but caveat emptor.


NuWave Induction-Unit Data

As always in these listings, we give these standard general—

Important notes on these data:

  1. We have spent a lot of time hunting these data--often in several places for each individual unit--but we cannot and do not guarantee any datum to be correct (indeed, we often found conflicting data at different sources). Caveat emptor!

  2. For those units we offer for sale, the prices shown are never over a day old. For other items, the prices shown are the lowest we found with moderate but not fanatic searching; moreover, they are not updated very often and are only intended as a rough guide to comparative unit values in cost/power terms.

  3. Most "Features" are not terribly important, and are nearly standard among roughly similar units, regardless of brand name. If some "feature"--shown or omitted--is especially important to you, check on it, because we did not take great pains over the "Features" data.

  4. Dimensions given here are, as the makers themselves warn, only to be used as guidelines in planning--never do anything till you have your actual unit to hand.

  5. Our criterion for including units here--as opposed to in the "residential use" section-- is the maker's labelling of the product on its web site or in its advertising; but be aware that makers use a lot of what lawyers call "commercial puffery", and the acid test is the exact wording of the warranty. If any unit's warranty excludes service in commercial settings, well, that speaks for itself. Regrettably, warranty forms are rarely available for inspection on-line for commercial units, so yet again: Caveat emptor!


We found several NuWave models, but only one that seems current:

NuWave Portable
NuWave 30341 "Titanium" Portable
