Yes. Pure Light Cooking ™ relies on infrared (just like a regular oven) and visible light (which is how we see the world, but without using UV or blue light). Your traditional ovens, toasters, and grills use infrared for broiling, baking, toasting, and roasting. It’s the same heat that emanates from a campfire and it’s very different than a microwave.
Why does Brava cook so much better?
Brava converts energy into cooking power very efficiently — much more so than conventional ovens; and, Brava’s patented combination of heating technology, electronics, and software precisely controls, directs and focuses this cooking power to quickly and efficiently cook your food.
Heat is universal, the fundamental difference between different heating technologies is how the heat is applied. Traditional ovens cook through a combination of conduction (heating the cooking surface on which the food is placed), convection (heating food by raising the air temperature) and direct energy transfer (heating the food directly).
What’s different about Pure Light Cooking ™ is our unique ability to precisely and efficiently heat the surface of foods. That heat is then conducted from the surface to the interior of what you’re cooking by the nature of the food itself. It’s through this method that we get the best results in the shortest amount of time.
This is in direct contrast to a microwave where the energy is tuned to water molecules and penetrates all the way through the food item. Because of these differences, with Brava, you can get a golden brown sear on a steak while keeping the center medium rare and juicy which is simply not possible with a microwave.
