I've been using my SHARP oven for the past 2 months for my baking. This is a multi-functional oven which had served me well in microwaving, making crispy snack and a occasional grilling since Feb 2007 when I got it as a housewarming gift from my colleagues (they are mostly ex-colleagues now, but we are still very much in touch). Regretfully, I did not lay my hands on the conventional function until 4 years later when I started on my baking journey in Oct 2011.
As a beginner with zero baking knowledge, I thought it has been doing a good job until my muffins came out with uneven browning and some how or rather my muffins just don't look good. My decision to get a new oven is set when I was baking meringue one day, only to realise my oven is way too small to accommodate all the meringue I've piped. Eventually, I've to separate into 2 batches and the 2nd batch came out totally disappointing cos my batter was left out too long while waiting to be baked. I know it has tried it's best, so I just shouldn't expect much from a multi-functional machine to do what a specialist machine should perform, should I? It has already done its duty as a good microwave oven. For the purpose of baking, uneven heating and size are my main concerns, which is why I jumped into looking for a good convection oven.
My first stop was to Toa Payoh Courts and I was introduced to ROWENTA and TEFAL. And I also got to know about DELONGHI at Tangs. With more searching of feedback online, I'm still quite torn between ROWENTA OC7868 (SGD759) and DELONGHI AOV842 (SGD599). Been scratching head for the past one week. Which can should I go for? It's now 03:43, maybe I should turn in now and see if I can dream of something later. Haha.
