Hello everyone,The FlavorWave and the Jetstream ovens are not the same! The FlavorWave claims to use both Halogen and Infrared heating elements,while I think the Jetstream oven only uses Infrared heating ! I have owned one of the older FlavorWaves and maybe 5 Jetstream ovens !
So lets start with the good and the bad points of the Jetstream oven
1.The Jetstream ovens have far better air circulation !
2.Because of the superior air circulation the Jetstream ovens did a much better job at cooking foods like air fried chicken,hot dogs,pizzas,rolls,biscuits,and so on !!!
3. Because of it's superior air circulation The Jetstream oven also cooked foods much faster then the FlavorWave !
4.But one big problem with the Jetstream oven is it's lack of durability! The plastic parts will crack and the oven may not last you much more then a year if you use it very often !!!!
So now lets start with the good and the bad points of the FlavorWave oven
1.The FlavorWave oven I had was far more durable then my Jetstream ovens ! My
FlavorWave lasted me many years,but the plastic lid cracked in half within a year or so of owning the oven!
2.The FlavorWave oven had a very weak fan,and the air circulation was poor!
I had to turn small pieces of chicken over in order for it to cook on both sides,but with the Jetstream oven I never had to turn the pieces of chicken over and it cooked just fine !
3.The Jetstream oven cooked the foods I loved much better then the FlavorWave did ! I would say on a scale of 1 to 10,with 10 being the highest,the Jetstream oven cooked foods between a 9 and 10,and the FlavorWave cooked foods at about a 7 or 8!
I just bought a new convection oven after doing a lot of research on them all ! I had narrowed it down to 4 ovens .....the New Flavor wave "Turbo and Platinum",the Nu Wave Pro and the American Harvest Jetstream oven, I ultimately chose the American Harvest Jetstream oven, for one main reason !!!
It circulates it's air far better then any of the small convection ovens I know of and I love how that extra air circulation helps to cook the food better and faster then it's competition !!!! I hope this information helps some of you who are looking for a small convection oven.
God Bless You and take care,Earl
