Meet My Ovens / Ovens which I Use / Best Oven to Buy in India

 I have been getting tons and tons of mails from viewers asking me what oven do i use..So i decided to do a post on it..I am also getting mails abour baking basics, will do a separate post for them soon..

Ok now coming to the Oven which i use..I use two ovens, Both are OTG type. One oven in my mom's place and one in my house. All the baking recipes which you see here is made in either one of these ovens.

I get so many questions from my viewers to suggest me good oven. Whether to buy convection or OTG. First lets see what is a Microwave Grill Oven, Microwave Convection Oven & OTG Oven.

 
Microwave Grill Oven:

1)You can cook foods, make curries or anything in it. 
2)You can reheat left over foods in it.
3)You can do microwave cakes it. Cakes will get bake but you wont get the nice texture and colour on them. And to note, you can only bake certain cakes in it.
4)You can grill foods in it. You can grill chicken or veggies in it. But the results wont be so perfect.
5)You can only use microwave safe bowls in this oven. No aluminum trays can be used.

Microwave Convection Oven:

1)You can cook foods, make curries or anything in it. 
2)You can reheat left over foods in it.
3)You can bake anything in it.
4)You can grill foods in it. You can grill chicken or veggies in it
5)You can roast anything in it.
5)You can use aluminium pan in it for baking.

OTG Oven:

1)You can bake anything in it.
2)You can grill, roast anything in it.
3)You cannot cook foods in it. 
4)You cannot reheat foods in it.

I have a Microwave Grill Oven and OTG Oven. I use my microwave grill oven to cook and reheat food. I use my OTG oven for baking, grilling, roasting. 

If you are looking for all the options in one oven, then go for a Microwave Convection Oven.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

MEET MY FIRST OVEN:

My First Oven which i bought nearly 4 years back when i initailly started this blog. It is a KORYO 19 Liter OTG Oven, Model No KOT 1921.

The features of this oven is 

1) Rotisserie Function
2)Easy Clean & Non Stick Coating
3)60 Mins timer
4)Temperature Control Upto 250 Degree C
5)6 Stage Switch Heating Element



I bought this oven for nearly 1500 Rs. At first i thought that this oven is not going to work for too long, because it was so cheap. But to my surprise it worked for nearly 4 years with no problem and still it is in a good condition. It is easy to operate and very user friendly.
 

This oven has heating element options too.

1) If you want to grill something, you have to set the option to top. So the top element alone heats and gives a nice charred or golden brown effects to your meats, buns and bread.

2) If you want the bottom of the food to toast and get nice crisp effect, heat the bottom element alone. It works great with bread.

3)If you want to bake cakes, cookies, cook meat or anything. You have to set the both element on. This ensures even baking.

There are still three more options, i have never used it so far.

And It has timer upto 60 mins, if you want to grill or cook for more than a hour, you got to come back at the ending time and set it for more time as you need.

The temperature of the oven goes upto 250 degree C. For baking i normally use 180 degree C. For grilling meats or cooking meats i use 200 Degree C to 250 Degree C.


This oven comes with a tray and a wire rack. I usually do my cookies or buns over this tray. I line a foil over it and brush that with some oil.When i want to place my cake tin in, i use the wire rack.

The oven has three adjusting height options, I use the center rack when i want to cook or bake. When i want to grill i put the tray on the top rack.When i bake any bread i use the bottom rack so it has room to rise.



Overall my experience with this oven is wonderful. If you are looking for a compact oven with low price. Then this oven is to go for. I strongly recommend it.. WORTH FOR ITS CHEAP PRICE.

MEET MY SECOND OVEN:

This is the oven which i bough two years back. It is a Morphy Richards 40 liter OTG Oven, Model No RC-SS. 

The functions of this oven are

1)Rotisserie function
2)Stainless Steel Outer Body, Mirror Finish Door
3)90 Min Timer
4)Temperature upto 250 Degree C
5)Convection  Function (It has fan)
6)Keep Warm Function


 Actually this oven was bought on a great deal. I bought it for 6000 Rs. Now the price has gone up. This oven is great when you bake huge cakes, because it has lots of space in it. It is easy to use and user friendly.



This oven comes with a tray and a wire rack. I usually do my cookies or buns over this tray. I line a foil over it and brush that with some oil.When i want to place my cake tin in, i use the wire rack. Actually the tray has high sides, so you can roast chicken or anything in it, it doesn't spill.

This oven has 4 adjusting levels. I use the center rack when i want to cook or bake. When i want to grill i put the tray on the top rack. You can bake bread in the center rack itself.


 
The temperature of the oven goes upto 250 degree C. For baking i normally use 180 degree C. For grilling meats or cooking meats i use 200 Degree C to 250 Degree C.



This oven has 5 heating element options too.

1) If you want to grill something, you have to set the option to top. So the top element alone heats and gives a nice charred or golden brown effects to your meats, buns and bread.

2) If you want the bottom of the food to toast and get nice crisp effect, heat the bottom element alone. It works great with bread.

3)If you want to bake cakes, cookies, cook meat or anything. You have to set the both element on with fan option. This ensures even baking.

4)You can even bake cakes without the fan option too. Just turn on the both elements on.



And It has timer upto 60 mins, if you want to grill or cook for more than a hour, you got to come back at the ending time and set it for more time as you need.



Overall my experience with this oven is so good. I love using it. I can bake 4 round cake tins at the same time. The space inside the oven is that big.

If your budget is little high and you have a big counter space for this oven. You can go for this oven.

  10. Thanks a lot for this guidance for oven selection. Have been in a dilemna as to what to select for a long time. Buying an OTG and a microwave separately seems to be the best option to enjoy baking.My family looks forward to the aromatic smells of baking bread and biscuits. Will also look forward to the basic baking guidelines from you; esp. for vegetarians.

    ReplyDelete
  11. @AnonymousYes aluminium can be used in microwave convection mode. For micro mode only microwave safe bowls and microwave safe glass bowls can be used

  12. @Bhumi ShethI am not familiar with convection oven.

  13. @nadiaIf you cook rice a lot, then rice cooker is worth. You can make pulav and biryanis int hat too. If rice cooker has steamer place, then momos can be made in that

    But my cake is cracking on the top if the top rod is on

  20. The rods in my oven become reddish when I switch on the oven, but then once it reaches the temp I have set (180 deg) it takes a long time to get back on and the rods never become red/reddish again. Once it restarts the red light glows for hardly a few seconds before it switches off again. Is this normal or is something wrong with my oven?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @SujiAs long as the oven is always hot when the cake is inside it, it is not a issue..

    ReplyDelete
  22. thanks for wonderful description . do you have any idea about Havells OTG? and wat capacity would be sufficeint ?

  25. Hi aarthi, I am planning to buy oven this christmas and want to try your all cake recipes. As per your information above microwave convection mode ovens are best right? we can bake cakes, reheat food, gill everything right?

    ReplyDelete
  26. @shwetha shenoyIf u want to reheat and cook foods, then convection is best. But for baking OTG is best

    ReplyDelete

  41. Hi.I have a LG convection microwave oven.cake baked in microwave comes out well,but not in convection.So I was wondering if otg would be better for cakes & breads ? Also would like your suggestions on which hand blender to buy for mixing cake batter for long ? Which would be better -a hand held one or the stand mixer? Thanking in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  42. @Saumya JoshiI have a OTG,it works like a charm for me. And for mixing cake batter, you can but hand blender if you have small budget, and a stand mixer if your budget is high

    ReplyDelete
  43. Finally got an Otg m.rich 28.gained confidence after reading your blog.you have explained wonderfully about the basics.
    I have few doubts.The salesman confused me saying that I cannot use aluminium foil nor glassware in this model instead mw.safe plastics alone!! Is it so.Actually he himself wasn't a pro so I didn't ask him further

    Any mw safe material like glass silicon and plastic are ok right

    ReplyDelete
  44. @CindhujaYou can use oven safe glassware, aluminum pans, aluminum foil, silicon, oven safe ceramics in this. But microwave safe plastics cannot be used in this

  115. Hi Aarthi

    I have the same oven. I generally use it for baking cake. Today I tried to make tangdi kebab at home but it didnt work... I was wondering if you could tell me what setting i should i have used (assuming my setting was wrong)? i did on the third one (which i use to bake cake) with 250 degrees and even after 30 mins no sign of it turning slightly brown.

  116. @Ashmitait depends on each oven. if you see the chicken is cooked. you can set the oven mode to grill and use it to grill the chicken

  129. Hello ma,
    I would like to get a mini oven for 10 inches round pan. But I'm somewhat confused as to the size (in litres) of oven I'm to buy. How many litres am I to get to suit my pan size?

    ReplyDelete
  130. @Anonymousi would suggest you to go for any oven more than 24 liters, which bakes cake good.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Hi I have the same oven but how do you manage to bake four cakes at the same time? I can fit only one 9 inch round on the wire rack at once and when I tried baking two cakes with the tray on the bottom, the bottom of the lower cake was burnt.

    ReplyDelete
  132. @Anonymousi used to fit 2 9 inch round cake pans in a rack and at the bottom two., you have to switch the racks half way through the cooking process.

  139. Hi Aarthi,

    Thanks for all your efforts to reply to our questions.

    I have few questions to ask:

    I have a Microwave Oven of Mitashi which has many functionality such as Grill,Convection,Microwave+Convection,Pizza etc.

    Let say I bake a cake at 180 degree for 40 mins at Convection mode,then my cake comes out as sticky in middle, its only baked at the outer layer and uncooked from inside,whereas if I bake the cake at same temperature and duration in Microwave+Convection mode, then my cake comes out as burnt.

    So to avoid these conditions, I bake the cake for some time in Convection and then for few minutes in Microwave+Convection.

    Can you please help me with this.

  140. Hi aarthi
    Sweta here...after reading your post i bought a 40 l morphy richards OTG. I wanted to know that if i bake 4 tins at the same time ..how should i place them in the oven. I faced the same problem of burning as i had put one of the tins on the cookie pan given and one on the wire rack. Both the pans have to be placed on wire racks..right?? And thanks a lot for your information.

  151. @hariniu can use steel ones, but steel will give you improper baking. You can line it with foil and use.

  154. Hi Aarthi,

    Thanks for the review. It's very useful.

    Can you help me choose an ideal OTG? I think I need a 28L one for a family of 4.

    But I'm confused if I must buy a Bajaj or Hamilton or Morphy Richards.Can you make a suggestion as to which brand is better in terms of appliance itself, baking quality & eventually service if you are aware.

    Regards,
    Deepika.
