Savvy Shopper here, back again to gaze in disbelief at the never-ending parade of countertop cookers. Never satisfied, Americans are constantly seduced by new grills and ovens that promise faster, more energy-efficient and healthier cooking than can be accomplished with pots and pans and conventional gas or electric ranges. Today’s candidate is the Sharper Image Super Wave Oven, which seems suspiciously similar to the Morningware Halo Oven. But we know that direct marketers would never copy their competitor’s product, right?
Anyway, the Super Wave Oven claims to cook virtually anything 3X faster and with up to 80% less energy than other methods. Plus you get a “free” blender and knife set, just pay extra shipping. Let’s add up the S&H. $19.95 for the oven, $19.95 for the blender, and $14.95 for the knife set. That $54.85, just in shipping. When you add in the 3 payments of $39.95, the total price is $174.70. This may still be a great deal, especially since The Sharper Image claims it’s a $500 value. Learn more at the official Super Wave Oven website.
