How many slices of bacon can you cook in this ?

The NuWave 14 QT Brio cooks delicious and crispy bacon! You can cook about 10 pieces of bacon depending on the thickness.

How can you clean in between the glass on oven door?

Clean your Brio after every use or in between a number of large batches. Do not use metal utensils or harsh abrasives when cleaning as this can damage the coating.
1. Unplug the Brio and make sure it cools completely.
2. Use a damp cloth to wipe the outside of the appliance.
3. Clean the Mesh Tray, Mesh Racks, Drip Tray, Rotisserie Basket, and Rotisserie Skewer with a nonabrasive sponge, hot water, and mild detergent. Dry thoroughly.
4. To clean Probe, wipe end with a damp cloth or paper towel.

Can you dehydrate on all racks?

You can cook/ dehydrate on all racks because the heat source blows around above and under the racks. I only use two of the racks in mine due to The bulk of the food or dish I place in the oven.

Does it come with any accessory?

The 14 QT Brio comes included with all the parts listed below.

  • Mesh Tray
  • Mesh Racks (2)
  • Drip Tray
  • Rotisserie Basket
  • Rotisserie Skewer
  • Temperature Probe
  • Light Bulb

Does this have a delay timer?

Yes, the Owner’s Manual comes included with instructions on how to use each of the settings.

Can you insert the probe while cooking?

You have to open the door to insert the probe. It only takes a second and is no problem. The probe works excellent, especially when doing chicken. I haven’t tried to bake in it yet but according to the receipe book that came with it you can bake pies and bread

Does it produce exhaust or does the air circulate only inside?

Yes, it vents. It is also a dehydrator. It is difficult to know how to design a dehydrator that does not vent. Add an Instapot, a good electric crockpot, a top of the line counter top mixer and blender (Hamilton Beach), a 1250 W Panasonic Microwave with Inverter, a big toaster oven, some Dahlstrong knives, and some high temp silicone bakeware, the usual selection of cast iron pans and all the usual pots and cookware and one has a handy kitchen. People mostly use my 4 burner electric range with its big oven as a countertop and for storage. But even in this kitchen, the air fryer is used a lot.
