    My new Convection Oven

    After much debating I purchased one of those glass convection oven and cooked some sausages in it.

    What else can I cook in it.

    Has anybody ever seen aluminium foil here?

    I was thinking of making flap jack but need to find some silver foil or a small tray


    Any suggestions as to what I should cook?

    The problem with Thai convection ovens is that they do not retain enough heat to cook properly. Well, the cheap ones that i have bought don't.

    I assume you are talking about a baking oven instead of a toaster oven.

    Figure on doubling your cooking time for most baking recipes.

    Aluminum foil is readily available.

    You can bake a fish, chicken or even a roast. Will post some stuff later.

    Flap jacks? I call these pancakes. How do you plan on doing this in your oven. I use a skillet for these, but remember that I am an Amerikan.

    Its one of those glass things.

    It cooked the sausages pretty quickly - about 15 minutes so not to bad and not fried.

    Oats, honey or syrup , nuts, butter and something else that i can't remember

    Mix it up an bake it

    here is a recipe

    ***** Chewy English Flapjack ***** Recipe #147286
    This recipe is for a tradional english cake/dessert/snack. everyone in my family loves this recipe, though its so old i cant remember where it came from. we all love it because its such a sweet, gooey, rich comfort food! its so easy to make, why not try it out? there are variations in this recipe, so you can try out the different optional ingredients, or even a combination of them!
    8 ounces plain porridge oats
    4 ounces butter
    4 ounces golden syrup
    4 ounces sugar (either brown or white, whichever is your favourite)
    optional ingredients
    2 ounces chocolate chips (white or milk or dark)
    2 ounces raisins or other dried fruit
    2 ounces nuts or seeds
    9-12 servings 9-12 SQUARES Change size or US/metric
    40 minutes 10 mins prep

    Put the butter, sugar, and syrup in a saucepan, and stir ir over a medium heat until the butter has melted.
    put the melted mixture into a miXing bowl, and add the porridge oats and any optional ingredients you want to add.
    put the mixture in a papered tin, flattening the mixture with the back of a spoon.
    bake the flapjack in the oven at about 180c for around 30 minutes, or until the flapjack has browned.
    note: if you are using raisons in your recipe, you might like to cook the flapjack for a shorter time, or for a longer time at a lower temperature, because raisins can burn and expand with the heat.
    once you take the flapjack out, you should cut it before it cools completely because it will harden.
    if youre impatient, eat some warm (if you havent already!) but flapjack is just as delicious chilled.
    ***** if youre a chocaholic, i would recommend that when the flapjack has cooled completely, you melt a black of chocolate and pour it over, and wait for it to set. *****.
    Lovely stuff

    Ahh, I was way off base. Anyway, my wife's father has one that he uses for Chinese chicken. What did yours cost? It looks like fun!

    Take a regular ol' yella onion trim the ends, peel; now cut 2/3rds of the way down from one end to wards the other in two equadistant cuts turn the onion and do it again. place a thick pat of butter over teh cut end, grnd some black pepper over that, wrap in foil and bake for about 20 mins at abt 350 (f), lonmger if you like 'em carmelized

    I thought this was the kind of oven you were talking about.
    Anybody know of a kitchen appliance warehouse in BKK?

    I did mention in another thread about microwave combination ovens. I think they're around 10K. Very good for cutting down the cooking time without obtaining the texture of 'melted' food that you get with a microwave. Baked pasta is my contribution - a great bacherlor's dish in that you can throw just about anything in. I opt for tuna, tomatoes, onion, garlic, with a topping of cheese.

    My experiances with cooking have generally tended to end up as a failure, the first time I made sponge cake I miss read the instructions, obviously it tasted the same but came out in chunks, it's so easy to get confused with mix in the jam and spread the jam, then my parents got a microwave, so I made myself some mash potato, you really wouldn't believe how long it takes to mash raw potatos, first you have to chop them up into little pieces and then bash the fok out of them, obviously now I realise that you have to cook them first, after many experiances like that it sort of put me off cooking.

    At uni one of my mates decided to boil an egg in the microwave so he stuck it in for 4 minutes or so (didn't cracj(

    He comes through to the living room and sits down gets his knife and cracks the top of the egg. The top of the egg blows up and sprays boiling hot egg onto the ceiling. Luckily it misses his face.

    He lived in an old victorian town house with 16 foot ceilings.

    Fucking messy.
