nuwave, the leader in portable induction cooking technology. the nuwave heats up twice as fast, uses up to 70% less energy and is safer than any cooktop. best of all, the nuwave is the only portable cooktop that gives you precise temperature control with the simple press of a button. professional chefs create great-tasting meals by maintaining the precise temperature for the perfect amount of time. well, now you can get professional results too, with the nuwave precision induction cooktop. >> the key to great food is knowing how to control the temperatures of what you're cooking. >> now the p.i.c. is allowing people at home to cook like you can in a restaurant. >> i know that when i turn it on that temperature, it's going to be that temperature. there's no guessing. >> announcer: not only does the nuwave give you precise temperature control, it heats up twice as fast as an electric cooktop. >> i put the water in the pan and turned around and the next thing i knew, it was boiling. >> what amazes me about p.i.c. is how quickly it will heat up. induction technology is just
there's no flame to catch fire, hot coils to burn you, the nuwave precision induction cooktop is the safest cooktop ever invented. look what happens with this egg: the pan is hot, but the cooktop is not. that's the magic of induction cooking. make pasta in half the time. melt butter with no chance of it burning. melt chocolate to creamy perfection. make sauces with perfect temperature control. >> it's small, it's efficient, it's clean and it's safe. >> announcer: and because it's portable, you can take it anywhere, so it's perfect for buffets and outdoor parties. to tell you more, let's join bob warden and jenny repko at the nuwave test kitchen in chicago. >> let me ask you, do you hate boil-overs and the mess they make in the kitchen? do you hate burnt grilled cheese sandwiches or shriveled-up bacon? >> what about over-fried chicken that's all greasy, or dried-out oatmeal, overdone pork chops or charred steak? >> well, what if i was to tell you that instead, you could now have perfect grilled cheese
evenly every single time? >> all that cheese is melted in there, so delicious. >> perfectly melted. and i could have perfectly grilled steaks set at 350 degrees that give me a perfect medium rare steak or however you like it and it's never going to burn. perfect pork chops, and not only pork chops... >> right, salmon, grilled vegetables, sausage, perfect every time. >> what if i told you, when you fried your chicken, it was going to be fried at the perfect temperature of 375, gently, perfectly, crispy, never soaking up too much oil. >> that's hard to do. >> in fact, that's the problem with the old stovetops, whether it's gas or electric-- you can turn it up and down, but because you don't have precise control, you're going to get boil-overs. because you don't have precise control, you're going to burn the cereal on the bottom from time to time. and because you don't have precise temperature control, you can't help but burn a steak or a pork chop on your stove. you see, you're not the bad cook in the kitchen. the stovetop is the bad cook in the kitchen. >> that's right, and those days
thanks to the fine folks here at nuwave, makers of the number-one-selling countertop oven in the world. >> well, they've done it again. you're looking at the new wave in stovetop cooking. now, this ingenious invention will make your life a whole lot easier in the kitchen and a whole lot shorter and a lot more fun. we're going to show you how and why every meal-- breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, grilled steaks, fondues and buffets-- every time. because now, for the first time, you can precisely control the cooking temperature. >> announcer: now you can live well for less with the nuwave precision induction cooktop. it's the most energy-efficient way to cook. the nuwave p.i.c. uses induction technology. the secret is an internal series of copper coils. these coils generate a magnetic field within your metal pots and pans. the magnetic field causes invisible molecules to begin vibrating rapidly, creating
heats the food. >> one of my passions are butter sauces. and one of the challenges of cooking a butter sauce is that if you get it too hot, you know, over 135 degrees, it breaks down. if you get it too cool, it congeals. the beauty of the nuwave p.i.c. is that i can control the temperature exactly and keep the sauce for an extended period of time. that's such an added bonus for a professional cook and a home cook. >> let me show you this unusual pan. bob, what did we do here? >> well, we actually cut a pan and cut a section out, because in here you can see we have cereal rapidly boiling, right? >> boiling away. >> i can put my hand right there. >> it's amazing. move your hand. i'm going to put an ice cube right there. it's not melting. >> because all of the energy is going into cooking your food. there's nothing wasted anywhere outside of the pan, so this is perfectly cool. so wipe that ice cube off there. >> o.k., i've got a cloth right here. watch this, i'll take this ice cube, wipe it up. i'm using a paper towel
there's no fire, there's no flame, so it's so safe. >> and the minute you put the pan back on it starts boiling right again. >> wow. >> now, because we're cooking without fire, jenny, i'm going to take a sheet of play money and put it between the p.i.c. and the pan. instantly it starts boiling again. >> have you ever seen anything like that? cooking through paper? >> so now we're cooking far more efficiently, we're saving 40- to 50% of the energy. >> right. >> isn't that amazing? >> announcer: seeing is believing. look what happened when the nuwave p.i.c. was put to the test on the streets of san francisco. >> all right, this is gonna blow your mind. this is the precision induction cooktop, and it is portable, eco-friendly and it saves you a lot of money, saves you a lot of time. >> wow. >> cooking time is cut in half. do you see that the water's boiling there? >> yeah. >> the great thing about induction cooking is it only heats the part of the pot that is magnetic, so everything else stays cool, so watch this. ah! [group exclaims] o.k., everybody, put your hands on it. >> isn't it hot?
magnetic part of the pot. this is at 110. you can leave it at 110 and it won't get gloppy, it won't get stale, it won't harden. >> and you don't have to be a big chef to cook. like, i don't have time to cook. this would be great. >> exactly-- this makes you look like an actual good chef. it's temperature-controlled, so i pop my fried chicken right in there and i know exactly what temperature it's at, and you know if you go down one, 10 degrees, boom, drops just like that. can you do that on a gas range? >> absolutely not. >> no. >> not at all. >> this is temperature-controlled so you don't overcook it, you don't undercook it. >> i love the temperature control-- that can cook meat without drying it out. >> man: mmm! >> that's amazing! >> what do you think? >> nice and crispy. >> you can fry, you can simmer, you can steam, you can fondue, you can do everything with this-- i love it. >> it's amazing-- i've never seen anything like it. >> i love that if you take the top... the pot off of the top, it stops and that the handles were cool. that's really amazing. >> and you know what the great thing is, you guys? it's portable. you can take this whole thing over to the table, plop it down and it will stay at 110 right
and you can dip all day. dip, dip, dip, everybody dip. and the best part about it? you can grill on the table. >> man: oh... >> what do you think about that? >> mmm... >> so it's raining outside, it's the middle of winter, you still get grilled food. will it change the way you cook at home? >> group: yes. >> the p.i.c. makes everything so simple. >> it looks like you ordered it from a restaurant. >> it does look like i ordered it from a restaurant. that's because i'm a good cook now with the p.i.c.

as does the host and hostess. >> announcer: introducing the revolutionary precision induction cooktop from nuwave, the leader in portable induction cooking technology. the nuwave heats up twice as fast, uses up to 70% less energy and is safer than any cooktop. best of all, the nuwave is the only portable cooktop that gives you precise temperature control with the simple press of a button. >> i love the temperature control. >> as you press the buttons, you can see exactly what the temperature is-- you can watch the water boil change. >> mm-hmm. >> that's incredible. >> anything you boil water for...

brought it down to 350 and we have beautiful grilled sausages, pork chops, salmon, even those grilled vegetables-- they were good too. >> well, frying temperature is 375 degrees, especially when you're using vegetable oil. we want to hold that perfect temperature, so lookit here. we have a probe in here, we set this to 375 degrees. it says 375 degrees. our chicken is frying gently, it's not going to burn. >> here on my burner-- it's a typical electric coil under here... >> i can see jenny's been cooking over here. >> this is what happens. it's not safe. and not only is it not safe, i have no idea what the temperature is-- i'm just guessing. >> when you get that really good fried chicken at one of those fast food chicken places, it's because they have a very expensive deep fryer, they've set it at 375 degrees, they can use that oil all day long without it burning. well, now you have that precise control at home with the precision induction cooker. let me give you an example. in the test kitchen, we cooked over 200 pieces of chicken, and this is what the oil looked like. >> it looks like it just came out of the bottle. >> and this is breaded
here we cooked just 20 pieces of chicken on a gas stove, same results would have been on an electric stove-- you'd guess. you set it someplace between medium and medium-high, you don't know. the minute it smokes, it's gone, it's ruined. that's typically what happens. you have to throw the oil away. >> yeah. well, that gets expensive. >> announcer: third-party analysis shows the advantage of nuwave's precise temperature control versus conventional stovetops. oil cooked with an electric stove contained 45% more saturated fat. oil cooked with a gas stove contained 10 times more transfatty acids. oil cooked with an electric stove contained over 90% more cholesterol than oil cooked with the precision induction cooktop. now some of your favorite foods can be healthier with the nuwave precision induction cooktop. >> when you're cooking with frying foods, you're, um, you're trying to keep that temperature high so the grease doesn't get in the food, where you're not ending up with greasy chicken or greasy fish. and with the precision induction
frying that chicken perfectly. >> announcer: the nuwave p.i.c. has been tested and recommended by the cooking club of america and is the safest cooktop ever invented. every 85 seconds a fire strikes a home in america, and most often, that fire starts in the kitchen. >> my very, very first fire was a 16-year-old kid who was cooking french fries on the stove and he forgot about them and he burned his parents' entire house down. >> announcer: well, that will never happen with the nuwave p.i.c. there is no open flame, no red-hot electric coil to catch fire and as soon as a pot is removed from the nuwave, the conduction of heat stops. >> the safety features of the p.i.c. impressed me so much that i'm going to send one to my mother. she's getting a bit elderly and forgetful and i'm always a bit worried that she might start a fire and the p.i.c.'s going to eliminate that problem. >> during our show, we've showed you what a difference the nuwave precision induction cooktop can make in your cooking. whether you're cooking breakfast or snacks. >> jenny: lunch, dinner, hors d'oeuvres.
griddling, when you have precise temperature control, it can make >> whether you're searing at high temperatures... >> or whether you're having precise temperature control at only 110 or 20 degrees for perfect chocolate, you have got it. in 10 degrees intervals you can go from 120 to 130 to 140, all the way up to 575 degrees, which you can never get with your stovetop-- you're always just guessing. so to sum it up, what do you get with the nuwave precision cooktop? you get, first of all, speed-- it heats up really fast. >> and safety. there's no red-hot coil or open flame. >> and you get precise temperature control that you can never get with your old electric burner or gas stove. and you save... >> both: money. >> so, here's how you can get your nuwave precision induction cooktop right now. >> announcer: introducing the revolutionary precision induction cooktop from nuwave, the leader in portable induction cooking technology.
