My Oven Broke, and this Kitchen Appliance Saved the Day…

Have you ever tried to make dinner and then realized the oven was broken?

It happened to me this week, but luckily my countertop NuWave Oven saved the day! It works as a handy back up oven and I’ve been using it a lot this week which is reminding me why I LOVE it.

The NuWave cooks food about 50% faster and uses about 75% less energy than the actual oven.


For instance, these roasted sweet potatoes cooked for just 10 minutes using the NuWave! Look how brown and perfect they are! And literally you just set the cook time for 10 minutes and leave it. There’s no preheating time.


These chicken tenders were crispy and done in just 15 minutes. I really love the texture the NuWave produces because the air is circulated underneath and not just on top. The meat stays juicy inside while the outside is crispy.


The Nuwave is also a versatile appliance because you can use other oven safe dishes inside it. I cooked an enchilada casserole using the Nuwave this week and it turned out great!

Pros of NuWave Oven:

  • Cooks food faster and uses much less energy than a conventional oven.
  • Won’t heat up the kitchen during hot Summer months.
  • The texture of the food turns out yummy!
  • Can be used as an extra oven at Thanksgiving and gatherings.
  • Easy to use with no preheating time.
  • The dome lifts off easily to pause and check on your food during cooking.
  • Easy to clean. The rack and bottom pan come out easily to be washed.

Cons of Nuwave:

  • Although it’s lightweight, it is slightly bulky to store – so you really must have space for it.
  • The cooking space is smaller than the oven.

My mom is actually the person who got me hooked on the Nuwave. She owns two and has used it to cook in the RV! Her favorite part is that it’s able to cook meat quickly from frozen. You can put in some frozen chicken and veggies, and have a healthy roasted dinner in under 20 minutes!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
