My new oven!

Yay! I finally got myself an oven. I had been fidgetting whether to get a microwave and an oven separately or to just get a microwave+grill+convection (3-in-1). After an afternoon of surveying the various electrical shops with my mom and pop, (they sure love scouting for appliances. My dad of course is the same old same old, heads straight to see wat's new at the home theatre system section)

So! most basic microwaves (without grill or bake functions) cost approximately rm300-rm500. That's pretty affordable. BUT when you add in the grill and bake functions, the price skyrockets to 1.5K minimum! whoooaaa. and the sizes are humongous. They can't seem to make them smaller. AND they are mega heavy ok.. Sigh, i guess these factors deterred me completely. My kitchen worktop isnt the tough, granite kind so i doubt it'd be able to stand the weight of a MAMAmicrowave man. PLUS i think it'd also take up the entire space of my already tight worktop space.

So! i decided to just go for an oven first. i can continue to heat up my food with my trusty MAXIM pans. No killer Waves here haha!

Then! AAAAUUUUugghhhhhh.... proper brands like Elba were scarce. All 3 major shops didnt carry it. Sharp, Panasonic etc apparently dont make electrical ovens anymore! they're all going for the super 3-in1 microwaves... Sigh, guess more money to make there. Electrical ovens just cost around rm150-rm300. Boo! well, no can do. I came to get an oven and an Oven i'm gonna get! so help me!

So i finally decided on this...


my SASAKI oven. See it all new and gleaming......
Cost - rm299. On promo!
34L capacity, a large bird can fit in - no problem. (so said the shop guy)
Stainless stell housing for that ultra-modern look
Rotisserie and grilling functions
Non-stick inner coating, just gotta wipe down the oil.grease stains. ha.

Wot a catch! except... anybody heard of SASAKI?

Haha, stumbled onto this post cos a friend asked what oven I use and I checked mine's a Sasaki... Got it as a wedding gift back in 2007. Maybe that was THE affordable brand back then. I've done all sorts of things with it, and it's still my trusty old oven...
