Postby kids_r_innocent » Tue Jun 08, 2010 10:18 pm

Hi,

Any recommendation for an oven that can do a good job in baking, grilling etc. I have a microwave oven but cant bake with it.

Thanks for your ideas!! :D

If you're looking for portable oven.

You might want to consider Rowenta brand. Heard this is good. My current Delonghi brand serves me well too. It's been 10 years already. It does baking and grilling rather well.

Pricing wise, I'm not too sure. Perhaps you can compare with the likes of Harvey Norman, Best Denki and even Paris Silk? With GSS, perhaps your can get better bargains :D

Fyi, Delonghi is under Kenwood. So, if you've any problem with the oven or need replacement parts chances are you can get the items from there. (as long as the model is not obsolete).

the shop at the lowest floor in united square has a good selection on display

prices reasonable

see the model that interest you first

compare prices with shops like goh sin huat - telephone enquiry and order is okay and I got all my electrical appliances this way

I've been attending baking class at Phoon Huat.

Would like to do it with kids at home.

This thread comes at a right time. I am wondering any other better brand?

Aside this, i am looking for cook stainless steel pot eg:AMC is famous but very pricey.

Would like to buy mixer too. Any good recommendation?

Hi Charmaine,

saw your post regarding Phoon Huat. I attended Phoon Huat before few times, and to be honest, their bakings are lousy (not sure of the standard now though). it's best to go for proper baking classes, e.g., those CC organised kind. They are tons better than Phoon Huat. and I mean it.


for kitchen mixer, kitchenaid is the best, but expensive.try to get it when there is a sale. around $599 for a basic one.:)

I have the stainless steel AMC pot. I love it and it is especially good for cooking soup. It saves gas, too. However, I still prefer the usual wok for stir-fry and deep frying.

I've the kenwood mixer and find it good.
