The NuWave Oven countertop device uses infrared technology to cook food. The result is meals that take less time to cook and that can be healthier for you since no oils or butter are needed. The NuWave Oven can cook a wide variety of food, including sweet potatoes.

Step 1

Wash your sweet potatoes under cool running water. Remove any bad spots or sprouts.

Step 2

Pierce the sweet potato a few times with a fork to allow the steam to evaporate while cooking.

Step 3

Open the NuWave Oven by lifting and removing the top dome.

Step 4

Place the sweet potatoes on the cooking rack and replace the dome on the cooker.

Step 5

Set the timer on the NuWave Oven. Several large potatoes cooked together should take approximately 30 to 40 minutes; smaller potatoes should cook within 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 6

Set the power level of the NuWave Oven, which ranges from 1 to 10 and corresponds to temperatures on a conventional oven. Sweet potatoes are usually cooked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, so choose level 10 to cook them.

Step 7

Press the "Start" button to begin cooking.

Step 8

Use the "Pause" button to check the food at any time during the cooking process. Press the "Pause" button again to continue cooking the food, or press the "Pause" button twice to end the cooking session.

Step 9

Allow your sweet potatoes to cool for five minutes before serving.
