Convection Oven Recommendations

I am looking for an oven like we have in the west. I am ok with a smaller size. I have been browsing on Amazon, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? I want to get an oven to bake! Thank you!

    I'm not much help with this since I'm in the same no-oven boat, but I'm following along because I'm curious about recommendations too. I miss baking and also I miss oven roasted veggies! Hopefully someone has a good product they can suggest!

    We bought a used oven from our friend who moved. It's from Mujirushi and about the size of a small microwave. It works as a microwave, toaster, and oven, which is convenient... but the microwave stopped working (I think it was more than 3 years old at that time). Inside it has a round plate that rotates and I don't have a baking pan that's the right size for it. It's really not the same as the ovens back home. For these reasons, we only use it as a toaster sometimes. I wouldn't recommend this one. If you go to a home store that sells convection ovens, you could find one you like and see if it's sold on Amazon, knowing how much you can buy it for at the store.

    For its price and size, I recommend this one! https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B002MRRA0W/?coliid=IYDZ2SMARWSW3&colid=2VB82JGULLKKG&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it It's hard to find a decent one for under 10k, but this one should do the job.

    Hello! We bought our oven 3-2 months ago. It’s TOSHIBA ER-RD 3000. You can bake, roast, steam, and use it as a microwave. We bought it in Nojima. Their price was around 60,000 yen but on the internet it was around 40,000+ We bargained if we could have it around that price and the guy from Nojima was very nice and offered to sell it for about 41,000 yen. We bought it and so far so good. We haven’t tried it for baking though but we are planning on making apple pie soon :) Here is a link for that oven in Rakuten. https://item.rakuten.co.jp/emon-shop/er-rd3000-r/?scid=af_sp_etc&sc2id=af_113_0_10001868

    most any brand is great, but you are basically gonna wanna look for a microwave oven combo. the larger the size inside the higher the price. I have a preference for Panasonic but really I haven't found any oven to be better than another from brand to brand. Just size and options make a better oven. You can find really nice ones used as well if you check recycle shops

    I have a Hamilton Beach Countertop Oven and it works great! I paid maybe $50 no more than $70 for it because it was on sale. I purchased it from Yokosuka Base, but you can also purchase from amazon. I have had it for two years and no problems at all still works very well. I bake cookies, cake, pizza, lambchops, fish and more! It cooks just as well as a regular oven, smaller portions of course and I would say that the temperatures can vary and you just have to watch it closely. I would recommend this type of oven especially for the space available in most Japanese homes.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
