NuWave ovens have taken the oven industry by storm. This is because stovetop cooking might be traditional but NuWave ovens promise faster cooking. NuWave ovens are generally great for searing and roasting but people have a hard time understanding the NuWave oven temperature settings. With this article, we are sharing the temperature settings of NuWave ovens!
NuWave Oven Temperature Settings
When it comes down to the NuWave ovens, they work with Celsius as well as Fahrenheit temperatures for the ease of the users. If you are using the NuWave oven for the first time, we are certain that you wouldn’t understand the connection of temperature with power levels. In this section, we are outlining the power levels and associated oven temperature.
- Power level 10 HI – At this power level, the oven temperature will be 342-degrees Fahrenheit. As for Celsius temperature, it makes around 172-degrees
- Power level 9 HI – With 9 HI, the temperature is around 325-degrees Fahrenheit while the Celsius temperature is 163-degrees
- Power level 8 HI – At this power level, the Fahrenheit temperature is 300-degrees. Also, it is equivalent to 149-degrees Celsius
- Power level 7 HI – With this power level, the oven temperature is around 275-degrees Fahrenheit while the Celsius temperature is 135-degrees
- Power level 6 HI – At this power level, the oven temperature is 250-degrees Fahrenheit. As for Celsius temperature, it makes around 121-degrees
- Power level 5 HI – With 5 HI, the oven temperature will be 225-degrees Fahrenheit. On the contrary, it makes around 107-degrees Celsius
- Power level 4 HI – At this power level, the oven temperature is 175-degrees Fahrenheit but the Celsius temperature is 79-degrees
- Power level 3 HI – With this power level, the oven temperature is around 150-degrees Fahrenheit which makes 66-degrees Celsius
- Power level 2 HI – The power level makes the oven temperature 116-degrees Fahrenheit. On the contrary, it makes 47-degrees Celsius
- Power level 1 HI – With this power level, the oven temperature is 106-degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, it makes around 41-degrees Celsius
This is almost everything you needed to know about the temperature settings of NuWave temperatures. However, there are other things to consider when we are talking about temperature. For instance, if the recipe calls for a temperature more than 350-degrees Fahrenheit, make sure that you are following the directions of the recipes. On the other hand, if the oven temperature for cooking is below 350-degrees Fahrenheit, make sure that you reduce the cooking time is reduced by 25%.
The important part is that the oven temperature settings are different with every NuWave oven. To illustrate, the Fahrenheit temperature setting is default on the NuWave ovens but the Pro Plus models are able to display oven temperature in Celsius as well. This is because the LED displays tend to display the Fahrenheit temperature and the temperature will be displayed for five seconds. If you don’t press any buttons in these five seconds, the oven will switch off the conversion mode of temperature.
In some NuWave ovens, you can long-press the cook temperature button for around three to four seconds and the Fahrenheit/Celsius conversion mode will be activated. On the other hand, if you want to stick to Celsius temperature while in the temperature conversion mode, you have to press the zero button (0). Also, it might give one long beep and the temperature settings will shift to Celsius. Similarly, you can press 0 again to shift back to Fahrenheit settings.
When you make some changes in temperature settings, keep in mind that it will become the default settings unless you change it. The most intriguing part is that the temperature setting will remain the same even if you switch off the oven, so manual temperature change is the ultimate solution for you.
When we talk about the NuWave ovens and temperature settings, it is important to talk about the cooking time because it’s different than the conventional ovens. For instance, the Pro model can be used for cooking an entire turkey (as long as it’s within sixteen pounds). For cooking turkey, you have to allocate ten minutes for one pound (do the math according to your turkey’s size).
In case you are making the beef roast, you have to allocate seventeen to nineteen minutes for one pound and it will reach the medium-rare level. For the most part, the NuWave oven is famous for quick preheating and fast cooking. Similarly, you can cook the larger meat cuts (frozen too, but you have to thaw them).
