Q: What is a good brand to buy for an oven?

I miss making homemade baked goods. A lot of ovens I have seen here are either too small or too expensive. I want to make cake, cookies, baked chicken (both whole and parts), roast veggies, etc... What brand do you have? How big is it? How much did you pay for it? What do you make in it? Thanks.

Midea is a good brand. I bought the 50L model for around 700 RMB. It does everything (except the dishes).

Just make sure whichever model/make that you buy has elements for heating and not the tubes. Tubes don't last and it's almost impossible to get them replaced.

Our Changdi is now on its 4th year of securing the family with bread, chocolate cake and other things needed for survival. 

 

The specific model is no longer for sale. It is one of their larger, and it was picked as it has 2 heating elements at both top and bottom.

Midea is good, I got one and I have cooked many times with it. Not a single problem.

my microwave and mininoven and regular oven are all GALANZ. No problems and I think they are a cheaper brand.

Definitely go with the "Easy Bake" brand, brand has been around for decades and is known for its power saving cooking ability combined with its low environmental impact make this a winner in my eyes.

Another vote for Midea and Galanz. Also ACA - they used to sell them at Sunning appliance stores, don't know if they still do. I used to have an ACA grill oven and it was great. I gave it away when I moved and last I heard it's still going strong 8 years and several owners later.

 

You can do everything a normal oven will do. Roast meat, bake cakes, bread etc. Some come with a rotisserie which is awesome for roasting meat.

Buy the biggest you can find and afford.

Had both Galanz 26 cm diameter and Midea 24cm. Paid  300-400rmb per each. Both worked well. Galanz is a bit wider, Midea is little bit stronger. Was happy with both of them.

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
