Key Features of the NuWave 37001

At 6 quarts, this is the largest drawer-style fryer on the market! The tray is deep and wide, allowing you a lot of space to cook in. It includes a silicon divider for the basket so you can cook two items at once. Want to make a roast chicken? You’ll have no problem fitting it into this unit!
Advanced Touchscreen Display
The controls are easy-to-set and adjust, and include buttons to pre-heat the unit and reheat foods! The display is located on the top of the unit and is very user-friendly. It even includes a printed cooking guide right by the controls!
Precise Temperature Controls
Adjustable in 5 degree increments, getting the perfect temperature on your NuWave is easy! You can set it from 100-400F, allowing you do do everything from reheating an entree or dehydrating some fruit to frying up a batch of fries!
Digital Timer with Auto Shut-off
The timer is a snap to set and adjust. Depending on your cooking temperature, you can set the timer for up to 16 hours! You can pause the cooking any time, and if you remove the tray it will pause the cooking for you! At the end, the timer will automatically shut the unit off so your food won’t burn.

What We Like
- The adjustable timer and temperature controls are the most flexible we have seen- up to 16 hours at 100F!
- The extra large capacity means you can make even more food at once, or easily make several dishes at the same time!
- The silicon divider allows you to decide where you want to divide your basket- you are not limited to a pre-slotted size.
What We Don’t Like
- The warranty is 1 year on the electronic parts only, and is voided if you bought your unit from a third-party seller!
- The tray and internal basket are not covered under the warranty!
- Since the display is located on the top of the unit, some people may have trouble reading it without using a stool.
Accessories and Attachments
Additional accessories can be purchased separately. The company recommends using their specific accessories only:
Grill pan- Perfect for making chops, chicken breast or sandwiches, this grill pan is used in place of the fry basket and make it easy to flip your food!
Reversible rack and baking pan- The rack can be used with the fry basket, allowing you to cook on two levels at once! The baking pan is perfect for making cakes, quiches and even casseroles!
What Customers Are Saying
The NuWave has some great features, but also some problems, according to users. People love the extra large capacity and how easy it is to use. The overall flexibility of the unit gets high grades by many, and it performs well compared to a traditional deep-fat fryer.
But there are a lot of reviewers who have had quality control problems. Some people have had issues with the unit not working or having other electrical issues. By far the most common negative review has to do with the tray and fry pan wearing out quickly. Since these parts are not covered under the 1 year warranty, users are left with the option to replace the parts at their cost.
