Yeah, wow, I hope The-Breeze somehow gets the commission for my purchase of the NuWave PIC Titanium 2015! I'll let you know how it goes in a week or so. Meanwhile.. I kind of have my eye on filling my patriotic duty on black Friday by buying a convection microwave oven. At first I thought I wanted an electric wall oven for the bus, and would deal with running the generator for the rare times when the oven would actually be used. But it'd be fantastic if we could get the job done with a convection microwave instead.

NuWave Oven on QVC

I keep editing as I hear more ...it's been on for just 37 minutes & they have already sold 3000 plus units

update 1:00am sold about 5000.

That's my last update for the night...going to see what's on other channels to see what else is on sale today that I JUST have to have LOL>>sorry!

Read up on it on QVC.COM & watch the video. Will also be able to watch edited versions during the nite & day tomorrow on the QVC & QVCP channels.

QVC must have read about my testimonial on here, cause today their "TSV" (today's special value) is the NuWave Pro Plus 8-in-1 digital Oven with additional metal rack for $89.96 with S&H of $7.00. It will be available at that price for 24 hours & then back to it's normal QVC price, usually about $30 or $40 more. AND you can get it for 4 payments of $22.49 (no interest)

It just came on at midnight so I don't have a clue what makes it a Pro Plus 8-in-1....I'll keep watching so I can find out what it is.

I see that they have a bunch of colors available which I know will be exclusive to QVC. I want the turquoise one. Some of the other colors are blue, red, white & eggplant, all exclusive.

Well so far I can see that it comes with 2 racks that can be stacked for double the cooking space. That's cool I hope they offer that extra rack for us old style users.

Oh and one thing I failed to mention yesterday is that I can disassemble it quickly & stack it into a 12" wide space about 6" or so high. Easy to find a place to store when not using.

Also with my burner...I bought it in white with black letters vs the black with white lettering as it is super easy to read.

If your considering, I would go for this deal use the he-- out of it for 30 days and send it back if you don't want it. The return shipping charges are most usually under $10 and there will be no questions asked they will just return you your money within a week of receiving it back. Of course you will be out the return charge. In fact you can just pack it back up, slap the return label on it & give it to your postman.

Nope, didn't get it yet. Good to know yours is still highly rated!

Not having any luck.

Wow. read from start to finish, quite an ordeal, but glad to see the bus has not been given up on.

Were you home alone when the explosion happened? Did the explosion 'put itself out' and no more damage was done?

Also, you are against the generator....can the batteries keep up with microwave, tv, cooktop, refrigerator, lights, etc. if you are somewhere without shore hookup?

It was just a flash fire that lasted maybe a second or less; there were no lingering flames after the explosion. I was alone in the bus, but it was parked right outside my folks' home; they heard the explosion and came a-runnin'. They've also been a huge help during my recovery.

The LiFEPO4 battery I want to get will easily handle the load, but the choke point will be the 2000-watt inverter. I'm confident I can keep my power demands below that limit when I need to. All interior lighting is LED and the greatest demands will be when using the microwave and/or the computer and all its accessories. The two chest freezers are very efficientódrawing less than 120 watts each when runningóand the small window air conditioner draws only 560 watts when cooling. With my heavily insulated floor, walls, and ceiling (and almost no windows), I should be good to go. And the longer I have to wait before getting back to work, the cheaper the cost of the solar panels I want to install on the roof. (See? There is a bright side to getting blown up!)

Yes, I did get the PIC back in late September. I've liked it so far. One of the first tests for it was pancakes on cast iron. Wow, it brings an empty skillet up to temperature fast!


A small disclaimer is in order: I normally cook pancakes on an electric griddle; it's been a LONG time since I did them in a skillet. Also, these were the first set I did on the PIC, so I didn't have the ideal temperature figured out yet. That said, the browning on the pancakes shows it's hotter in the middle and cooler toward the edges, but I think it's usable. I've ordered a set of 3-ply cookware with an aluminum layer in the middle; maybe I'll test that out soon to see whether it conducts heat out to the edges better than the cast iron does.

The thing I've used the PIC for most is actually pressure canning. Those turkey poults I posted on my build thread in the spring grew up all summer and I've just finished packing them into jars. (Two toms at 32 and 35 pounds dressed, and a 20 pound hen went to the freezer. The toms were enormous!) The PIC was convenient for this because once the canner was pressurized, I could turn the temperature down in 5 or 10 degree steps to minimize water loss without causing pressure/temperature to drop too low. Also, once it was up to pressure, I set the time feature for 90 minutes so it would automatically turn off when the processing was complete.

The two-plate model Offgr1d mentioned in her build thread might be a nice one to consider too, but I already had this one when that one was mentioned, and I'm content enough for now. Thanks again, Breeze!

So after reading many posts, a conversion should be something along the lines of:

pull out seats
pull out old floor + isolation
pull out unused wires
raise roof (optional)
isolate
decorate
make pancakes
