I also checked out the prices of some built-in ovens, and there is one that I like that costs something like $1600, but then, I don't have a built-in kitchen cabinet unit, so it would look totally ugly. Ya, I've seen some ppl just stick their built-in oven on the kitchen counter, and it does look odd like that, so no. I'm not doing that.
I've also checked out those ones with the stove/cooker on top, but I read somewhere that if I am baking, then I can't cook on the stove at the same time because it would be too hot. So that's out of the question, because in my experience of baking, I'd be melting the butter and the chocolate on the stove while the chocolate cake is baking. Or whatever. Sauteeing vegetables while my meat is roasting. So to me, the table top electric oven is the way to go.
After purchasing this oven, I will be so excited to prepare the recipes in Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook "Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food".
I bought it ages ago... In it, she gives you interesting recipes where you use pureed vegetables and mix it in with other ingredients, and bake it, and it will not taste like vegetables at all! So kids will eat it. Salma doesn't like to eat anything that's green in color. Even green tea ice cream.
She gives recipes for snacks, main course, desserts...
