My wife has given approval to buy an oven. Our main uses will be for things like fish, chicken, and bread. Her budget is up to NT$20K, so we have some wiggle room. The only conditions are that it be apartment-sized, suitable for the higher temperatures needed for bread, and be 110v. Also, we’d like something Japanese because of quality, and it’ll most likely give us the best bang for our buck here (as opposed to something European).
Even if you don’t have any personal experience with this kind of oven, what are some things we should be aware of? Do I need the ability to steam if I’ll be baking bread in a Dutch oven? Do we need a fan? How do we determine the oven’s efficiency and ability to retain heat? What other things should we consider? Thanks.
