Thanks Icon. I think I'll take it to Costco over the weekend.

Anyone have knowledge about superheated steam ovens like this one: http://www.appliancist.com/steam_ovens/ ... -oven.html

Might have a line on one at a cheap price, sounds good but I'm a bit leary.

Anyone have an opinion of Best vs Ariston? Seems to be a small sale going on. I've used Ariston in the past and it generally works well enough when you find the hotspots. ...The Best looks a bit sexier.

Maybe they have industrial ovens that are gas


Pizzas cooked on a pizza stone could do with even 400-450 deg c.


Could do, sure, but 'just' 250C on a well-preheated piece of stone or cast iron turns out great, IMO.


Yes, that would work, too. I set my Marupin commercial oven to its max of 300 deg C and cook a pizza (on a pizza stone) in under 5 mins. I pre-bake the base for maximum crispiness.


El Toro,

can I ask if you are satisfied with the Marupin and would recommend one.

Thanks

Just got the Dr goods oven, massive thing compared to my old one :-)

Wanted to know though, can it broil? I'm guessing no, but just wanted to check.

If by broil you mean cook at high temp with the top elements, then yes. You can control the top and bottom elements separately with the two knobs. The top has four elements whereas the bottom has only two, so it can generate more heat.

Thanks for that. So I guess its a case of putting the food on the top rack, setting the temp, then leaving the door open a bit so the thermostat will never get hot enough to switch the elements off?

If I recall correctly, when you turn them to max they don't shut off.

Rotalsnart wrote:I bought a Kaiser Chef oven at Costco a couple of years ago. I've used it less than once a week on average, and have found it serviceable.

But today it suddenly won't turn on. Has anyone else encountered this problem with this oven? Yes, it's plugged in, and yes, there's power in the socket it's plugged into -- is there anything else I might be overlooking, or does anyone have any suggestions of things to try to power it up?


Just to follow up on this if anyone has or is considering this oven. I took it back to Costco and they sent it to to the manufacturer who repaired it for free in a couple of weeks time, even though it was past warranty (evidently it was a simple repair). I only had to pay a few hundred NT in shipping and go through the hassle of dropping it off and picking it up at Costco.
