1) Please search before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.
2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.
3) Please post separately for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.
Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!!
What's your budget? What size do you want? The cheap little ones (much bigger than a toaster oven, but too small for a turkey) are probably around $3000 and are available at all the mom and pop appliance stores as well as the big chains (RTMart etc.); for a step up from that, but without paying an arm and a leg for an import in Tianmu, you can check out the ones for around $7,000 at the baking supply in an alley next to the Minquan bridge. (See my post on previous page for details)
Since this was posted a long time ago, I was just wondering if there are any new places or if the stores mentioned still exist. I live in Taipei and I am looking to buy a convection oven,new or old. Something at a good price would be good. The little ones at 3C and Costco don't look all that good. They don;t seal properly, so I wonder of they retain heat. Any info would be great.
The DIY baking store near the Minquan bridge still exists AFAIK, as does the one in Donghu. Both sell the Dr. Goods, which I like. It seals well but the sides and back aren't very insulated so you can't have it touching flammable items or plastic. Please see the Home Oven Recommendations thread in the Food Forum area.
