The Hot Logic 400 Macrowave Oven + Mini Hot Logic Giveaway


I knew nothing about Hot Logic when they approached me and asked me if I would be willing to review their product. Macrowave oven? What is that? I had no idea what to expect, but I was excited to give it a try!

Once I had it in my kitchen I was pleased with the fact that it is very compact. Yet it's four shelves give you tons of room to cook several dishes at once. I tried different packaging and was really pleased with the results. The only time I had a problem was when I didn't pay attention to the instructions and used a container that was not completely flat on the bottom. Other than that it was smooth sailing.

The Hot Logic 400 is the ultimate in slow cooker technology! It does all of the work for you while go about your day to day life. It is so easy! It will heat your meal slowly and evenly, unlike a traditional microwave oven. It preserves the moisture, enhances the flavor and extends the hot hold time so when you are ready, your meal is ready.

The Hot Logic 400 uses less energy than a microwave and is more sanitary than a microwave because meals are cooked in a sealed container. The slow, even, heating stops all of that messy splatter and exploding food!





Now you can make those meals ahead of time, freeze them, and then just pop them into your Hot Logic 400 as you go about your work and play. When you come home you have a fresh, hot, flavorful meal ready to eat. 

I can not stress how easy it is to use. All you do is plug it in, turn it on, wait for the smart shelf to turn red, and you are ready to go! No difficult programs to learn or remember. That is HUGE for me. 

Plus the Hot Logic 400 saves you money! No need to go out for expensive dinners when you can pop your meal into the Hot Logic on your way out the door and come home to a meal ready to eat, and it is energy efficient. It costs less than a penny per meal to operate! 

A reader just pointed something out to me. With the holiday season upon us, the Hot Logic 400 would be absolutely perfect for reheating those leftovers. 4 shelves to place your potatoes, turkey, gravy, stuffing on, and in 45 to 90 mins you will have a hot, MOIST, flavorful meal done all at once!

I also took the Hot Logic 400 to my friends salon and let her use it for a few days. Her employees all loved the fact that they could bring their lunch in and just slide it on into the oven knowing that their meal would be ready for lunch, no matter how long it might be. She is now thinking about buying one of the food service sized ovens for her shop so they can all have room for their meals.

Now, I am super excited to tell you that Hot Logic has given me a Hot Logic Mini to give away to one of my lucky readers!




How would you like to take your lunch to work, place it in your  Hot Logic Mini, plug it in, and when you ready to eat have hot meal that is not dried out or tasteless like a microwave meal would be? Just like with the Hot Logic 400, you  just need to make sure your food is in a flat bottomed, sealed container.

OK now on to the fun stuff!! Let's giveaway a fabulous Hot Logic Mini to one of you!!

  3. Choose only one feature?! That's difficult. There are several that make this a great product. I love that there are four shelves. I like that fact that it's energy efficient. And then the part about no programming -- that's great too. Looks like a terrific product.

    1. I agree, it is one of my favorite aspects of the 400.

  10. A slow cooker oven... how great this would be for someone like myself who refuses to use a microwave oven. I have probably 6 slow cookers. One of these would replace all of those. Why didn't someone think of this years ago?

    Because I have digestive issues, I have to cook different meals for myself than for everyone else. This would be so much easier than the way I am doing it now.

  11. Well Bobbi I have to say that is cool as spit! What a great way to have hot food at work, at home and compact, super easy to use. WOW great review and product. Perfect for working busy moms.

  15. WHOA! I have a family of six, and we all eat at different times. Everyone is running in and out and having therapy, doctors appointments ... and let's face it. Sometimes? Okay ... Okay, a lot of the time I am WAYY too tired to even let my hair down before bed, let alone cook some 5 course meal. THIS is awesome! I can cook all weekend, and freeze up individual servings and they can reaheat them! Not to mention we can produce 4x the variety of food in one go! Dinner problems solved with the Hot Logic 400!

    The Hot Logic Mini too! Like this product line needs any sprucing up?! Sooo cool! At work, the microwave is always in use, never clean and ... well, let's be honest ... it makes food taste like the dried out box it came in. I'd LOVE one of these babies to tote to work. I'd be like the lunch-whisperer ... sigh, one can dream! =D Thanks for the opportunity!

    1. Yes, the only thing that is "good" if you can say anything is, about a microwave is that it heats quickly. But you sacrifice, quality and flavor. This macrowave heats slowly, but retains the moisture and flavor.

  29. I am in love with how easy the Hot macrowave mini would make my husband taking lunches to work! He has a microwave there, but this would be even better cause then he wouldn't have to combat with the other employees for microwave time on his short lunch break. His lunch would be ready at the perfect time. I love this idea! I love that the regular Macrowave oven also lets me get all the Thanksgiving leftovers ready at the same time! LOVE it.

    1. It is actually a macrowave oven. So it doesn't cook quickly like a microwave. But it keeps your food moist and retains all of its flavor so it doesn't taste like cardboard when it heats up.
