I recommend that u look at Mayer's products.

Bought one and used it for 10 years without any problem at all, baking, grilling, etc.

Shifted house and bought another this year, same model and working fine!

Slightly more expensive than some other brands but considering the lifespan of > 10 years, should be ok.

Hi smurf,

Teka is pricey ...mayer's better...My sis who's an avid cook swears by it over these twelve years..I have a Teka combi oven -microwave and oven purpose..that's why I chose Teka over Mayer/Ariston because they did not have that function..Also go test the buttons.controls for the oven before purchase because if u don't 'feel good' operating it...chances are when u get it in your home, it won't feel good cooking with it! :D Heh heh..hope this helps!!

You got budget? Mine's a cheap Morries oven from Carrefour.
$79.90 (still same price now). Bought it 4+ yrs ago, using it on daily basis either to grill chicken or other meats, bake and reheat food.

Serves me very well :)
& not so heartache on the price if you don't use it often or if it breaks down :p

I do agree on Mayer's products. My whole kitchen's electrical stuffs are from Ariston and they really last. Have been using it for more than 6 years and they are still in good conditions.

great to fnd this thread on oven!
i am so confused by the types of oven. whats the difference between convection oven, convection microwave oven, steam microwave oven? a fren was telling me its unhealthy to eat microwaved cooked food due to radiation.. But a microwave oven has different types of cooking. So long i choose a program, say, convection grilling/baking, it shld be alright?.. i am really confused :?

Go 'google' lah. Full explanation would be too long.
