Not Microwave, FlashBake
Microwave ovens are fast and easy, but they can't broil, caramelize, steam, grill or roast food. The new Wolf/FlashBake 120 by Quadlux in Fremont, Calif., cooks nearly as fast as a microwave but runs on halogen lights controlled by a computer chip. Infrared rays brown the food while visible and near visible light penetrates and cooks it. First used in commercial kitchens in 1993, the new FlashBake oven for home use will cost $1,400 to $1,600 when it goes on sale Dec. 1.
