About Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven

The new Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven claims to help you cook “easier, flavor-infused meals” up to 70% faster than a conventional oven. In addition, the company claims that the oven’s “moisture-sealed and pressurized” technology ensures that it’s “virtually impossible to dry out or ruin your food.”

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is manufactured by KitchenTek, LLC, based out of Pueblo, CO. The company’s website was down during our research, though they appear to be relatively new, as online information about them is scarce. Regarding the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven specifically, online reviews appear to be primarily negative, with the most common complaints citing cheap construction and poor customer support.

How the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven Works

According to the manufacturer, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven underwent 2 ½ years of development prior to being released, in order to perfectly combine all the benefits associated with both a pressure cooker and a conventional oven. Because of this, the company claims that the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven’s “Flavor Infusion Technology” allows you to “make the most moist, flavorful meals you’ve ever had,” and that it will be “the only oven you’ll ever need.”

The oven’s three-position rack (bottom, middle, and broil) is claimed to provide all the same adjustability as your conventional oven, but allows you to “toast, roast, bake, broil, and re-heat food in a fraction of the time.” In fact, despite its relatively small size, the device can accommodate up to a 14lb turkey or a 12in pizza.

When you’re ready to use your Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven, you can choose between two different modes:

  • Pressure Mode – Cooks your food up to 70% faster, while using low pressure to lock in heat, moisture, and flavor.
  • Standard Mode – Works like a conventional oven, while “using a fraction of the energy.”

Whichever mode you choose, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven can be used in five easy steps:

  1. Turn the oven on, and allow it to quickly preheat (indicated by a green “ready light.”
  2. Add food a lower the sealing lever.
  3. Seal the vent release valve.
  4. Set the timer.
  5. After your food has cooked, open the vent release valve to release any built-up steam.
  6. Enjoy your meal.

When cooking with the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven, you can use your normal pots, pans, and bakeware. On top of this, other than the unit itself, all parts are dishwasher safe.

Keep in mind that when new, you’ll need to run the oven through one full cycle prior to placing food inside, which will burn off any “non-toxic protective oils.” Also, unlike a traditional oven, you’ll need to release pressure inside the unit prior to opening the front door. Failing to do this could result in severe steam burns.

Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven Pricing & Refund Policy

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is available through Amazon.com, HSN, and directly through the manufacturer. If you choose the latter option, the Standard Oven is priced at 5 payments of $49.99, or one single payment of $249.95, and includes the following:

  • Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven
  • Baking/broil rack
  • Drip/baking pan
  • Roasting pan
  • Crumb tray
  • Quick start guide

If you’re looking for an upgrade, you can also purchase the Rotisserie Series Model for 5 payments of $69.99, or one single payment of $349.90. This model includes everything found with the Standard option, with the addition of:

  • “Specially-engineered” rotisserie functionality

All Wolfgang Puck Pressure Ovens come with a 60-day money back guarantee. If you’re dissatisfied for any reason during this time, you’ll need to contact customer service at (800) 498-1303 or wolfgangpuckoven@kitchentek.com to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number.

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven comes with a one-year limited warranty, which covers manufacturer defects in workmanship and materials. However, the product’s FAQ page claims that a 36-month extended warranty can be purchased as well, though this option did not appear when we attempted to check out.

Pros

  • Combines many of the benefits of a pressure cooker and conventional oven into one countertop device.
  • Allows you to cook food up to 70% faster, while sealing in moisture and flavor.
  • Can cook most of the same foods as a traditional oven.
  • 60-day money back guarantee.

Cons

  • Most common customer complaints cite cheap construction and poor customer support.

Bottom Line: If you’re thinking about purchasing a Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven, keep the following in mind:

The oven is relatively new, so there are a limited number of online customer reviews available. However, the majority of these are from independent bloggers who received a free Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven in exchange for a review.

When looking at non-blog related reviews, most appear to be primarily negative, with some of the most common complaints citing cheap construction and poor customer support. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise though, as high quality conventional pressure cookers can cost as much as $400. When you factor in the fact that the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven also combines the features of a regular oven for just under $300 (Standard Model), the old adage “you get what you pay for” seems relevant. With this in mind, we did find one very detailed review that stated the same, which was highly complimentary of the oven.

Also, it’s important to note that only poultry cooks 70% faster than a conventional oven. According to the website, beef and pork cook 50% faster, and “casseroles, vegetables and baked goods cook 25% faster.”

All in all, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is a unique device that has very little (if any) market competition. As such, for people who are looking to save time when cooking, the product might be a viable option. However, keep in mind that it may not be a high-quality appliance, and you may experience difficulty processing a refund or an exchange through customer service.

    Rusted pan?

    • New Jersey ,

    I love the oven but my pan is rusting. I need to put an aluminum pan insert in order to use it without getting rust in my food. Can you please send me a replacement pan?

    Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven

    The only reason I bought this was because I had a 50% off coupon from Wolfgang Puck, and a store coupon for 20% off. So, for just a little over $100, I would give it a try. It came with limited recipes, but offered no advice or instructions on converting from a pressure cook pot to the oven, so you use the recipes they provide, or it's trial and error.

    Yes, it is cheaply made. The pressure cook valve often gets stuck or comes loose during cooking. There appears to be little if any, insulation, so it does get very hot on the outside. You could easily get a serious burn should you touch it, and pay attention to nearby items on the counter. The catch tray on the over floor is very flimsy, just like a sheet of foil. You need to use caution in removing and cleaning the tray, otherwise, you could end up with a ball of cheap aluminum.

    For the heck of it, I did put in a Mrs. Smith frozen apple pie. I turned the heat up, activated the pressure knob, and cooked for 15 minutes. Let it cool off for an hour, and it came out very good. It is almost a year old and I don't have much faith that it will last much longer.

    I will not replace it with an identical item, or would I recommend it because it is so obviously cheap, and I don't like the idea of experimenting with recipes. Since I paid so little for it, I've gotten my money's worth out of it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Pressure oven review

    Just received my oven ,first attempt was ribs, and they didn't turn out very well. We only had baby back ribs in freezer and the recipe called for big meaty ones, maybe that's why? But second attempt was pork chops with orange marmalade and they were really good!

    I guess it's trial and error but have a feeling I'm going to love it.

    Easy to burn yourself & impossible to clean

    This sounded like a terrific idea and I do use it rather than turning on the main oven. This should not be used around children as it is totally metal with no coating to protect one from getting burned if you touch the outside of the appliance. Cheaply made, the metal inside also has no coating and it gets nasty pretty fast if you broil or cook anything with fat that isn't in an enclosed pan.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I like my WP pressure oven, I own 2

    I love my Wolfgang pressure oven.

    I really liked the roasted vegetables how they came out and my roasted sausage and vegetables, roasted chicken and my roasted rack of pork.

    I come home very late and this helps me out often times.

    The door blew open while using pressure seal

    I have had my Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven for just over a year now, and I loved it until today. I was pressuring potatoes when, with a loud BOOM, the door flew open, while locked under pressure. Still shaking, I called customer service and they tell me that they have no idea why this would happen, and unless I purchased it directly from them and not a retailer or TV (which is where I ordered mine), they can't do anything! WOW. Be careful. I'm lucky that none of my children were walking by, or else it would have really knocked their head off. And to find out that they don't even want me to return it so they can find the source of the malfunction? Now that's scary.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    I am really enjoying my new oven. I bought this and received my new oven right before Thanksgiving. What a time saver, as well as moist juicy turkey and ham. This saved time and space as well as not turning my kitchen into a sauna as my big oven does.

    I've read others' statement about poor construction. I don't know, I guess I'm lucky because my oven performs just as advertised. I definitely got my money's worth. I love the timer with the shut-off.

    Everything I cook in this comes out wonderful. It did take some trial and error with some of my recipes, but now it's a breeze.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Awesome - great for a place with no oven.

    I own my own business without a kitchen in it so eating out was all I could do before I bought this. Now I bought it from a friend for $25 dollars. That makes a difference because mine didn't come with a rotisserie piece and the temperatures were pretty rubbed out, but I love it. I make dishes that I can cook in it, like small casseroles or rolls, and it works perfect for me and my mom. I really love it. The only problem is after I have had it for awhile - the top release valve gets stuck open. Also, unless you have special trays to fit into it, aluminum pans become your best friend. Just something you should know before buying.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Best kitchen appliance I have purchased

    • Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota,
    • Jan 22, 2016

    I have been very happy with how versatile the oven is. What a surprise when I prepared a Prime Rib roast. It was perfect. Yeast rolls, cakes, and Thanksgiving Dinner - always perfect.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Horrible customer service

    My husband placed the order. Within five minutes, I called back to cancel. They said it was already processed and could not cancel. So first, we had to get the oven, and then pay heavily to ship it back with insurance, otherwise we will be without an oven and still pay $250 for it.

    By the way, it is selling for $200 at Kohl's, so please do not buy it online or through the TV advertisement.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Return procedure defective failed to issue refund

    I have a major concern with the return policy in case of malfunction. I purchased this oven direct from KitchenTek, and found that I had difficulties with the door latch and the steam button. The Customer service department deemed this to be a malfunction and issued an RMA and a prepaid return Shipping label using USPS. The return label had no tracking Number and post office said one could not be issued with this kind of label. The return address label provided by Kitchentek was cryptic (addressed to 'Postage Due Unit'). Fortunately I did purchase a certificate of mailing, but this has no tracking capability.

    One month later Kitchentek denies having received the item, and are asking me for a tracking number. It does seem that package is lost somewhere between the Post office and their warehouse, and I am concerned by the lack of responsibility by the vendor to handle its returns in a professional manner. It seems I am out of $290 but I would never deal with this company unless you are sure that will not need to return items to them

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
