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.

Sending parcels overseas with Japan Post

I think I may have touched on this in one or two blog posts, and this is as much an airing of frustration as it is a question. For the last few years I've used but one Japan Post office, close to where I work. I'm a regular there when it comes to sending parcels home for birthdays, Christmas etc. In the early day, I would just be asked to fill out that little green slip about the contents of the parcel, and would also be asked if there was a letter inside. (To which I always replied "No," as it makes things more expensive.) The next stage was that staff would then started to look at what I had written on the form and if there was anything that might be construed as needing a battery, they would ask me to write "No battery" if one wasn't included. Are they ever? Fine. Then things moved onto asking me what was in the parcel before handing me the green slip, so I felt like I was having to announce to the office staff what a cheap skate I am when it comes to presents. And then we would do the green slip, and the "battery" questions. Now another layer has been added -- on top of the questions, the battery check and the green form -- I now get a separate form, a kind of tick-the-box checklist through which I declare that I'm not sending any cigarette lighters, matches, sprays etc lest I face prosecution. Then we get onto the questions, and all the rest of it. I'm just wondering if others are being taken through the same process when they send things overseas with JP, or is it just that particular branch ... or just me. It's kind of taking the fun out of trying to be a good uncle, brother, son, friend etc. Still, at least they've stopped asking me if there's a letter in the parcel.

About the artcile, Faced with destroyed crops, town encourages hunting as business

The above article dated on Oct 14, 2018, has caught my eye and I am wondering that Japanese translation about the guy in this article may be wrong, which was described as a suspect, Okano, "東京都の岡野恵介容疑者." I hope he is not a bad person. Editor, please check the Japanese translation for the sake of his credit.

Gently Used furniture

I will be visiting Japan early March and I want to arrange for the purchase of several pieces of furniture for my husband‘s new apartment. We are both well into our senior years and for health reasons can only see one another once a year. He needs a double bed, a small two-seater sofa or a recliner chair and a small kitchen table with two chairs. We cannot buy them right now but I do want to arrange to purchase and have them delivered before I arrive in Japan March 5. Bilingual. Any ideas?
