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.

How to deal with an inconsiderate Japanese hospital roommate

Hi guys, my daughter is currently admitted in a hospital in Tokyo and expected to stay for a minimum of 3 months. We are currently sharing a big isolation room with another patient. The mother of the patient is so loud that it will make you go crazy and will make your eardrums explode. I know limited Japanese but I know enough to understand basic convos. This mother is even badmouthing me to one of the nurses. I feel like this is some kind of discrimination. I swear we are not doing anything to her or to be an inconvenience since we share the same room. I'm thinking of bring this up to the ward head. Is it advisable? Or will just fall into deaf ears? TIA!!

Using your phone on the toilet

I've been in Japan for some years now so the international protocol regarding talking on the phone while on the loo (in a public toilet) is not so familiar to me. However, here in Japan I find that men do it quite a bit and it always surprises me. OK, so the dexterity is impressive (especially in the case of No. 1s) given the potential for an embarrassing mess, but when I see it, I always wonder if the person on the other end is aware of what's going on, and how they would feel about it. Especially if they are a member of the opposite sex. I'm yet to do it myself (I'm rarely keen to speak to anyone on the phone, let alone while I'm doing my ablutions) but I'm wondering if it's the norm over here, or, indeed, anywhere else in the world. Thoughts?
