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
  • Recipe booklet
  • Use and care 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
  • Related tools and accessories
  • Free recipe book with rotisserie options

Standard shipping is free, though you can choose FedEx Express Saver for $29.99, FedEx 2nd Day for $39.99, or FedEx Next Day for $49.99.

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.

    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 6, 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.

    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.

    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

    Oven is average, don't expect to find a replacement roasting pan.

    • Rising Sun, MD,
    • Nov 22, 2015

    I like the oven. It cooks well and honestly is average. You could purchase the same type oven cheaper. What is irritating me is the roasting pan they send with the oven rusted quickly. I cannot find a replacement. Wolfgang puck does not sell them, and nothing you can find in the stores will fit it. Don't waste your money. Find a product that can accommodate other pans you can purchase.

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

    Pressure oven is efficient

    • Lancaster PA,
    • Nov 18, 2015

    I have a larger oven that uses a lot of power for holiday baking. The Puck pressure oven (no rotisserie, wouldn't use it anyway) bakes and roasts well at pressure daily for 2-4.

    Thermostat seems accurate. Oven holds heat better than an inexpensive convection/ toaster oven. I use it in standard mode for roast vegies, pizza, casseroles.

    Make sure your crockery can take high heat and fits: it does NOT accept my 13x9 glass baker dish with handles.

    Pressure devise on top is counterintuitive if you use a pressure cooker: it is supposed to sit loose, pointed at the arrow, but it works. Turn off the oven and use a utensil to rotate the pressure devise away from you and it will vent without incident.

    I did not get a free oven for review. I am getting my money's worth.

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

    Love this oven!

    We absolutely love this oven. Please note that I've only used it once after we purchased it 3-4 days ago. I'm primarily a griller while my wife tends to do all of the inside cooking. I hesitated to use it initially until I started reading through some of the recipes. One that caught my eye was the Barbecue ribs. I've cooked ribs many times with subpar results on my grill after many hours of preparation and cooking. I can say honestly these were the best ribs I've ever tasted. It was easy and we made them inside the house in under 90 minutes. Tonight we're making fish, can't wait to get started.

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

    Timer does not shut off

    • Ithaca, N.Y,
    • Nov 15, 2015

    I bought the oven for my daughter-in-law in Florida on 11/17/14. After a few months use, the electrical chord went bad and Kitchentek replaced with another oven this summer. Now she tells me the timer does not shut off and it is a problem. No point paying $249.95 for a cheap product (made in China) when it does not last long enough to justify the cost.

      I have had mine for 5+ months and my timer does not shut off the unit's power either. I have to unplug it when the timer is done. I also just replaced the roaster pan due to its nonstick coating peeling off badly.

    I love this!

    • Santa Barbara, Ca,
    • Nov 3, 2015

    I borrowed my mom's because I wasn't sure about how good it actually was while watching it on QVC. I LOVE THIS THING. I've cooked Tri-tip roast, cake, cinnamon rolls (super moist) and a bunch of other stuff. You don't have to preheat (huge bonus) and it cooks up to 1/2 the time. The foods retain all of their moisture. I'm a believer. I literally stopped using my big oven.

    Only one con so far and that is it's a bit small to fit a regular size roast pan or standard 9x13 pan.

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