Does anyone know where I can buy a real oven? I have a toaster oven but that really doesn’t but it for baking anything. I have heard a rumor that there is a market in West Chengdu that sells hotel supplies and I can buy a small commercial oven there. Has anyone been there? Do you know the Chinese name? Any help would be appreciated. ThanksSeptember 16, 2015 at 1:30 pm #48201Rick in ChinaParticipant
I’d buy one here.
I bought a Seimens oven/microwave combo for like 6k rmb, but it is one that needs to be installed in the cupboards so I’d imagine you aren’t looking for one like that – this listing has some of various types, including standing ones. I’d imagine you don’t need anything over 60L?September 16, 2015 at 1:35 pm #48203
There was a guy selling a used oven on gochengdoo about a month ago for 300 RMB. I spoke to him and he said that I could get a new one for 7-900. It is a stainless oven that is about the size of a large toaster oven except this unit goes up to 600*F, which is what I want. 6,000 is a little steep for me. Thanks for the help 🙂September 16, 2015 at 1:37 pm #48204
Also i already have a toaster oven similar to those on JD.com. It works fine but for baking bread it just doesn’t get hot enough for an ideal loaf.September 16, 2015 at 2:47 pm #48206

The ones linked to on JD.com are real ovens that can bake bread. I have an oven (didn’t get it on JD.com but it’s available there) which bakes everything I have tried without issue. I would also recommend JD.comSeptember 16, 2015 at 2:54 pm #48208
Charlie, what make/model oven do you have? What is the maximum temperature of the oven? My toaster oven tops out at 230*C and with a thermometer, it never gets above 200*C when I bake. ThanksSeptember 16, 2015 at 3:02 pm #48209

I’m not sure of the exact model (I’m not at home) but it looks almost exactly like this one, which goes to 250 celsius. That is basically how hot a normal oven in the states or Europe can get, to my knowledge.September 16, 2015 at 4:54 pm #48213Daniel WikstrandParticipant
Metro has an oven from by the brand Tomato for 700RMB that works perfect for bread, we used to do 3 loafs at the same time in it.September 16, 2015 at 4:56 pm #48214
Apparently there are a lot of people baking their own bread :-). Thanks for all the advice.September 16, 2015 at 5:55 pm #48217

Great to see you here Daniel – any chance you’ll come back to visit? Are you still in Seoul? (For anyone who doesn’t know… Daniel was the co-proprietor of one of the best coffee shops in the city a few years ago called Kaffestugan)September 16, 2015 at 6:38 pm #48218Daniel WikstrandParticipant
Yeah, still kicking ass in Seoul and loving it !
Slim to nil chances of a trip to Chengdu in the near future but will let you know if…
Thanks for the nice comment in above post 🙂
Check your PM…

The only problem with baking in toaster ovens is the size, but I somehow managed to squeeze a 6.5 kg turkey into my 38 L Midea… They’re cheaper on JD or Taobao anyway, but you can go look at models in a store, top floor of Ito Yokado has loads on display.September 24, 2015 at 8:50 am #48316OlsenParticipant
…or, if you’re lazy, the bakery around the corner from Waitan has nice European wholegrain bread that’s not too expensive.October 4, 2015 at 10:48 am #48423otchengduParticipant
I wish your shop was here, i have been searching for a good place and always here your old shops name popping up. Coffee shop’s in the “du” are not in abundance like those in Seoul. By chance do you have a shop in Seoul, i’m returning soon and will have a sip should that be the case. Will even bring in my IPL teram members.
