Yum! The Flavor Wave Oven Cooks Up a Cryo-Roast

A cryogenically frozen 'Cryo-Roast' on the Flavor Wave Oven infomercialStunts have long been one of the tricks of the infomercial biz. For example, one common stunt demonstrates a product’s sturdiness by having some kind of a large and exotic vehicle run over it. In the current WalkFit infomercial they have a bulldozer roll over a WalkFit orthodic. Another common stunt is to saw through a tin can with a knife and then use that same knife to easily slice a tomato or cut thin slices of bread. These stunts are supposed to make the viewers say to themselves something like, “Wow! If the WalkFit can withstand a bulldozer then it can certainly support my feet with ease.”

The latest infomercial stunt comes from the Flavor Wave Oven Deluxe. To show how the FlavorWave Oven can cook frozen food without a need for defrosting, they cryogenically freeze two roasts. On-screen graphics even label these frozen hunks of meat “Cryo-Roast.” I know when I go out to eat, my mouth always waters when I see a “Cryo-Roast” on the menu. To prove that these Cryo-Roasts are really, really frozen solid, they get on a lift and drop one of them to the ground, where it shatters into bits. Check out the video:

This is actually the second take of this scene. In the first take, the cryogenics guy accidentally picked up Walt Disney’s head.

  • You obviously haven’t been doing your homework. Have you even tried the machine before you talked all that trash. It does truly cook great when the meat is frozen. Steaks come out very tender. Of course, I suggest that you season the meat before you put it in the freezer.

  • Jamal,

    You brain-dead moron, this is a *humor* website. On every page I have a notice saying I do not review products!

    Please quote where I ever said that the Flavor Wave oven doesn’t work or that people shouldn’t buy it.

    Does it work? I DON’T KNOW AND I DON’T CARE!!

  • and also, why the hell are you going to prepare and season the meat, THEN freeze it? does the ice melting add more moisture and tenderize the meat? or give it that nice arctic flavor we all desire in our daily sun-covered lives?

  • Love the site, I don’t normally comment but I think that idiot “Jamal” deserves one. Nobody cares about these appliances honestly. We’re here to laugh at these infomercials. Here’s a hint, I have a microwave and stove/oven. That’s all I need, not some other junk from China…

  • Did Paul suggest that Jamal’s brain is Cryo-frozen?
