Q: What appliance(s) do you have back in your country that you wish you had now?

I miss my clothes dryer and I could really use a gas oven-

For me it would be an electrical grill plate like the one below : (they are good to make pancakes)

Buffalo Electric Grill Plate - high quality and heavy duty kitchen appliances
and of course, a real gas BBQ on an SS cabinet on wheels.  And a clothes dryer would also be welcome.  I am lucky to have a nice electric oven do.

With you on the oven, although it's really inexpensive to buy a small one if the desire for baked potatoes becomes too much.

On the other hand, I can't find a toaster anywhere...

Oven, clothes dryer, food processor, toaster. In that order.

Thumbs up on the oven! I love to cook chicken and roast in the oven. We just bought a small clothes dryer and have been putting it to good use.

I have to agree with a lot of these:

Full sized oven, clothes dryer, a nice Kitchen-aid mixer (with meat grinder and pasta attachments), food processor, bread maker (really miss that - oh sour dough bread... but I could also do that with an oven), tortilla press, coffee bean grinder, hand blender, BBQ grill,rotissarie, waffle iron, food dehydrator (I miss home-made jerky...), smoker,...

And of course:  THE CLAPPER.

A crock pot (slow cooker).

And maybe a good sex swing (if that counts as an appliance).

Oven, clothes dryer, toaster oven, and an actual tub, not just a hose in the bathroom. If I were to live here long term, I'd buy those things.

A blender for making my milkshakes, washer and dryer, toaster, toaster oven. Well I have a washer but no dryer so I miss that. I had a george foreman grill that was used to reduce the grease I missed that because at least I knew I was getting a healthier meal.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
