Microwave/oven combination - possible? good Idea?


Recommended Posts

We've broken the microwave.

Thinking about buying another a microwave but toying with the idea of buying a microwave/oven combination, that is if they have them here? Apart from the usual uses for a microwave, we just want to bake some cakes, hence the thought about a oven combo.

I read the topic http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/874603-table-top-oven-good-or-bad/ and some good info there.

Is there any microwave/oven combinations that are relatively cheap, but reliable?

We are in the Bangkok / Bangna area.

Ideas on models, prices and place where you can buy them/bought yours.

Thanks

Luke

Moved Topic to Int'l food. May get a more varied response. As shipping is easy from anywhere, did not seem to make sense to stick into one of the local forums. Good luck with your search.

I have an LG microwave that can grill, it was about 3,500 from Makro. I sometimes buy pizza bases from Foodland and make pizzas - it does grill but is obviously not the same as an oven.

The Electrolux microwave/oven combo linked to above looks very good, I've never tried one. I'd like to test one but for 8,000 baht, I'd be tempted to buy a separate microwave and an actual oven. You can get decent microwaves for 1,500-2,000baht and pretty large counter-top ovens for 2,500-3,000. My reasoning would be the cost of repairs - I'd be wary about expensive repairs. I've always found that electronics are almost written off when they fail in Thailand due to the cost of repairs (ie it's better to replace than repair).

@jadee.

We already have the Electrolux for a couple of years and we use it regularly, both Microwave and Convection oven. Never ever a problem and No repairs needed Yet.

However YMMV ;)

My concerns also, but I buoyed by the comments MJCM that the product is durable.

Appreciating all the comments thus far.

Please add more if you can.

Just seen that 2. But it's just an example as to what is available.

Sorry if it's not available but I have one (bought already a couple of years ago) and I like it (for what's it's worth)

:wai:

I've had a Sharp "Perfection" (model R988P) microwave, double grill and convection oven for 7 years and it is absolutely great........easy to use and clean and includes some preset menus and recipes.

Can't fault it and would def buy again if it comes to it.........but would suspect my model has been superseded by newer models now.

Great concept and works well for me.

I have a combination microwave, top grill and Convection oven. Works great it is in the catalogs at Home Pro but not usually in the selves.

My second on, had one brought from Europe for 10 years, found another here but different brand.

I had two sharp micro/convection/grill combos before leaving UK and can't praise them highly enough. I would love to be able to buy a similar one here but all the ones I have seen are smaller so sort of defeats the purpose of the convection bit.
