    I need an oven

    I must stop looking at this thread- it's making me hungry AND jealous! I live in the standard ghetto Thai-style apt- 1 room w/ bathroom and balcony. No kitchen, just the hotplate outside. Man I miss roasting, baking, braising- count your blessings boys. Be grateful of what you have, even stuff you wouldn't think about- like an F'in oven! :-)

    About 2k baht at Lotus. Works a charm.

    I bought one of those for the mother in law. Did some chicken in it and it was terrible. I've heard people say good things about them in other threads though.

    They have a good selection of work top ovens in Robisons on Charoen Krung road. All below 5k I think.

    I've had one for years. Roast pork, beef, chicken, casseroles and small pizzas. Always comes out delicious. It's simply a small convection oven.

    Wow- I really had no idea about these options/alternatives. Thank you all very much! Huh, who woulda thought Teak Door is good for info? Joking of course- again thanks guys. I'm going tomorrow to look into this! As white trash as it sounds (I'm American), I miss meatloaf- that's something a hotplate cannot produce!

    You can make your own pizza dough or buy the frozen ones from Makro. There about 20cm diameter. Put whatever you like on the dough. Tomato sauce, cheese, mushrooms, olives, etc. Pop it in the wee oven until crust is brown and crisp. About 15 mins.

    Well I'm sold, nearly bought one a few months ago, but thought it was some kind of steamer, thanks for the heads up. Next time we go to town I will get one, pizza, I'm drooling already. Jim

    You can pick up a fairly good convection oven, grill and rotisserie in Makro for less than 3 Grand. The one I have does a mean roast duck on the spit. The one thing I did do though was to add an on off switch as most have timer switches good for just 90 minutes.
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    To the OP. Another thing you might want to consider is a Slo-Cooker (Crock-Pot). Bung all the stuff in it before you go to work, turn on, and when you arrive back home your dinner's waiting for you.
    I made some rice pudding in mine the other day. Bloody lovely with a dollop of jam in it.
    Do not walk beside me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me for I may not follow. Just pretty much leave me the fuck alone!

    Teakdoor has been very useful the last couple of days - I have also yearned for an oven but never bothered to look into the options before.

    This thread and the UK TV thread has just improved my quality of life in Thailand.

    I have one of those Zanussi table top ovens, cost 4k, and really just like a smaller version of the big oven you are missing - no discernible difference. Just got it for outside use as an add on to the bbq. However, very good results and quite small. Last time I was in Home Pro they were in the sale as well.

    There was a small pizza outlet in our soi. They cooked small pizzas in a 2000 Baht special. Pizza Thai I think.

    My money is on the Zanussi type version. Like an oven except smaller!

    ^ snap - mine does as well. It comes out though and I guess for that picture, they did indeed take it out. After all, chicken fat dripping onto a croissant isn't so nice.

    I concur.
    Whilst not liking black pudding, it's definately not queer food.

    Well, as we seem to be in a helpful mood today, I'll chuck in the quest for a different oven... a Dutch oven, preferable the three legged camping version with reversible lid so that it can be used as a skillet/griddle.



    General info Dutch ovens | here
    Campchef.com | Dutch ovens and other iron cast cookware
    Even at the Walmart | Iron cast cookware

    I would really like to have one here in Thailand, but the original iron cast version is hard to find here. I know of the slow cookers at True value and Verasu but these are either enamel coated or too small. There's a moderator on TV who produced a batch of small ones for not too many money but..... I want a big one, a real one, one that can feed the whole family and more.

    Yes, these ovens are freely available on the internet, in many sizes and prices. Problem is, not many will ship outside the USA and even when they do, the shipping costs are often much more than the oven itself. I also wonder what import duties would be...

    Only option is to have somebody buy it in the USA, then lug it along two sets of underwear, only one t-shirt and a toothbrush as there's not much more room in terms of luggage allowance. These things are heavy. Meh... no American friends or distant relatives want to come to Thailand... summer is slowly arriving and the Thai baht is too expensive anyway.

    Once here, besides using it, I really would like to have a go at finding a company that could produce some offspring as I have the feeling that there would be a lot of customers, or should I wait for the 3D printers?

    Anyone know of possible other sources to get one? I'm in no hurry at all, just want one...



    Sorry OP, for going a bit off topic...
