B&D re-launches InfraWave oven PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tom Philp

The oven also saves consumers time and energy costs by automatically selecting both ideal times and temperatures for cooking selected foods evenly.

The unit has a capacity of 0.7 cu. ft, a digital touch pad and display, and a standard sliding crumb tray.

The new Black & Decker InfraWave Speed Oven is available at now at Canadian Tire, at a suggested retail price of $149. Kabani said the company plans to launch it in Canadian Wal-mart and Sears stores in September.
