    Thumbs down Nu Wave PIC, as seen on TV

    I noticed the ad in the header in this site. Let me tell you my experience:

    I responded to a TV or Internet ad, I forget which, maybe both.

    I thought my wife would like it, so I ordered one.

    Item Cost Shipping Total
    NuWave PIC2 1 $99.99 $29.95 $129.94
    Cooking Package FREE $29.95 $29.95
    Hawaii Surcharge FREE $30.00 $30.00
    NuCookbook 1 FREE FREE $0.00
    Cooking Guide 1 FREE FREE $0.00
    DVD 1 FREE FREE $0.00
    1-Year Warranty 1 FREE FREE $0.00
    VIP Membership 1 FREE FREE $0.00
    Subtotal of Items $99.99
    Shipping & Processing $89.90
    Taxes $0.00
    Total $189.89

    $89.90 for shipping! My wife read online reviews saying it was a piece of garbage, she didn't want to even open it - I emailed and called their phone requesting return instructions.

    The company does NOT respond to emails, and their phone has been shut off, so I can't even call them.

    If I had ordered a second unit "FREE, only pay shipping," I'd have had to pay another $89.90.

    Sometimes I'm such a sucker. It sits unused in our garage, till I can sell it or 'gift' it.

    If anyone wants it, they can have it for $100.00 -
    Even if I returned it I'd still be stuck with the shipping and surcharge, plus have to pay shipping back.

    I have a similar product that I've used for about a year, a Max Burton, and mine works pretty well. Out of curiosity, I looked yours up on Amazon to see what users said about it -- it's here: Nuwave PIC2. There were complaints, especially about shipping and customer service, but the reviews were mostly positive.

    Interesting. Lovely ad targeting, I'm seeing the ad up top, too. Agreed, the product looks good for $99, and has reasonable reviews for a kitchen gadget... all the negative reviews relate to shenanigans by the manufacturer, including upselling and unreasonable shipping charges.

    Well, it's gone. A friend found the "half price" offer appealing enough.
    I'll report back with her impressions of the product, to be fair.
