Holiday Gift Idea: Faster Cooking With an InfraWave Speed Oven

Updated on October 30, 2007

Looking for a unique gift for the foodie in your life who has just about every kitchen goodie and gadget ever invented? No modern cooking aficionado's kitchen is complete without the InfraWave Speed Oven, the latest countertop oven from Black and Decker. The cooking enthusiasts gurus on your special occasion and holiday shopping lists will be thrilled with this terrific new small appliance. The InfraWave Speed Oven is also a great gift idea for the RVers in your life, because it's the perfect size to carry along on camping trips.

What's So Great About the InfraWave Speed Oven?

This tiny oven, the size of a standard toaster oven, is a powerful tool for saving food preparation time. It saves cooking time several different ways. First, foods do not have to be defrosted prior to cooking. Additionally, the oven does not have to be preheated. Foods can go straight from the freezer to the InfraWave Speed Oven.

Once in the oven, cooking time is shorter than with a traditional oven. It comes with instructions for converting cooking times for oven recipes. The total savings in preparation time, from the freezer to your dinner table, can be as much as 50 percent.

Even though the InfraWave Speed Oven prepares food quickly, it isn't a microwave oven. Food prepared in this appliance does not have the same texture of that prepared in a microwave. It actually pairs to best features of microwave ovens and traditional ovens, meaning that it cooks food quickly, but food tastes like it has been prepared in a standard oven. It produces baked goods and other food products the same quality as those prepared in a traditional oven.

What Can the InfraWave Speed Oven Do?

This small, yet powerful oven can do anything a traditional oven can do, just faster and more efficiently. Use it to:

  • Bake
  • Broil
  • Roast
  • Toast
  • Sear
  • Brown
  • Reheats
  • and more


  • Automatically selects time and temperature
  • Bake/broil function
  • Digital control pad
  • Electronic controls
  • LCD display
  • More than 50 preprogrammed menu items
  • One-touch functionality for popular snack items
  • Preprogrammed reheat function
  • Removable crumb tray for easy clean up
  • Speed toasting

How Does it Work?

The InfraWave Speed Oven uses infrared light, which is both safe and energy efficient.

Gift Giving

The InfraWave Speed Oven is a very affordable gift item, with a suggested retail price of less than $150. The InfraWave Speed Oven is available in both black and stainless steel, so it can complement the décor of just about any kitchen. It's small size means that it can be stored in a cabinet or kept on the countertop at all times.
