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

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

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.

    Good Oven - Horrible Customer Service

    • by Reid,
    • Chestertown, MD,
    • Mar 19, 2015

    This is actually two reviews that, when combined, result in an average score. First, the oven itself has worked very well for the past four months. I have cooked turkey, pizzas, fish, etc. and it works great. I have not had any negative experiences with the product.

    However, secondly, the ordering process and customer service have been the worst! The order taker promised gift cards which turned out to be a scam for ordering magazines - sad that Wolfgang Puck would cheapen his name in association with such a cheap trick. In attempting to contact Kitchentek, or anyone, I was ignored and email was never responded to. A big fat zero! I would purchase from Bed, Bath, and Beyond next time, and I will never order anything associated with Wolfgang Puck's name in the future.

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

    Quick cooking time, baking and poultry experience was very good!

    • by Todd Weaver,
    • Boca Raton, FL,
    • Feb 1, 2015

    We purchased the pressure oven at Sur la Table, and returned it for replacement because the cheap roasting pan was peeling, and the door-opener-button kept springing out of the face of the oven onto the counter.

    We took it back after just 2 months (and many successful meals), and the exchange was seamless at the store. We loved the results of the oven and decided that we wanted to get another one. It turns out that the Teflon on the cheap roasting pan is the same low quality; it was damaged when we unpacked it.

    We decided we like the oven too much to give up, so we called the "Puck" company customer service, and discovered that they do no yet offer a replacement pan. They did tell me that they are planning to offer replacement parts in the near future because they are beginning to roll out the product into larger markets and more stores. For now, all that we could do is return the product to the store.

    We are going to keep using it and look into a solution to the roasting pan in the future.

    So, like other reviewers who have cited cheap materials – we concur. We did not find customer service to be lacking or poor in quality, but then there was nothing they did to help with our complaint either, so considering this we have nothing to say about customer service.

    We love the cooking results.

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

    BAD idea!

    • by Stacy,
    • Fayetteville,
    • Jan 27, 2015

    I purchased the oven back in June. Tonight my timer quit working. So I call Puck and they inform me I still owe the last payment and I tell the lady - Look I have the receipt from the Credit card. She continues to argue and then says - yes we'll replace it, after the last payment is made and we need $19.99 shipping cost as well. 

    The oven never worked right from the beginning, our turkey 1/2 cooked for Thanksgiving, our Ham raw in the middle for Christmas. And I received NO phone call or letter stating anything about the last payment not being paid in full. So Ripoffreport.com here I come! Save your money and buy a regular stove.

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

    HANDY DANDY OVEN

    • by KATHRYN TRIPINO,
    • Middleton WI,
    • Jan 27, 2015

    The oven was a birthday present, 6 months or so ago.

    It has cooked many dinners, baked cakes, muffins, corn bread, homemade bread, focaccia. Whatever I could put in there it has cooked to perfection, for the most part. A cake came out uneven, the rack was not tight. Only gripe is, some areas are hard to clean & I wish there were more recipes available.

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

  • Hate it. Wish I could send it back

    • by Caroline Faw,
    • Montana,
    • Jan 11, 2015

    We ordered this just before Christmas. I wanted to get used to it so I could use it for part of Christmas dinner. I used it a number of times. I hate it. Wish I had kept the box so I could ship it back. Save your money. Never cooks the meat done on the inside and makes it so tough on outside you need a chain saw to cut it.

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

  • Great Product

    • by Rich,
    • PA,
    • Dec 26, 2014

    This pressure oven sure does what Wolfgang Puck says! The chicken, beef and ribs are crispy outside and juicy inside. I would tell anyone looking to buy something that works that this will be the one and only product to buy!

    Quite Amazing

    • by Rick,
    • Paris, Maine,
    • Nov 19, 2014

    I don't know about anybody else's experience but I do know that since I have got this oven, it has been performing flawlessly. I purchased the 1 without rotisserie because I figured that something would eventually go wrong. Actually, my plan was to return it after a short time because I figured it probably wouldn't work. Watch, now all I can say is good things about it. I will keep it. I have cooked brownies, roasts, roasted vegetables, pies, and reheated stale baguette French bread in less than 5 minutes to perfection. I have made casseroles french fries. It could use some skid proof legs since it does slide around the counter when you try to open the door if it's not against the back of the counter.

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

    I have owned my pressure oven three months and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the ease of using it and the food always comes out extra tasty and moist! I am a single Woman on the go, so it is perfect for me to be able to bake and roast quickly!
