My New Asahi Convection Oven

I’ve always wanted to buy a new oven. I didn’t want to spend for it, though. So what I did was I sold my portable sewing machine and used the money from the sales to buy the oven.

the oven that a portable sewing machine bought

My new oven is just a basic one. I bought it last Saturday from SM Appliance Makati. The brand is Asahi and I got it for only P2,525. It’s a convection oven with a capacity of 23L. It’s very ideal for newbie homebakers like me. It was actually this Asahi convection oven review that a blogger friend wrote that convinced me to choose this particular brand and model over the others in the market.

first finished product of my new oven

I kitchen-tested my new Asahi convection oven yesterday when I baked a giant brownie for my brother’s birthday celebration. It served as his birthday cake. I am happy to report that my first finished product was a success! My entire family loved it. I can’t wait to use my oven again this weekend in whipping up more yummy baked goodies. :)

      Thanks Leah! I used Betty Crocker’s brownie recipe with that. Sure, I have very good recipes on red velvet cake, pizza dough and banana cake. I’ll share when I get the time to bake them. :)

      Try mo sa appliance center ng SM Makati, sis. Doon ako nakabili, sa ibang SM out of stock sya. I think same price pa rin yan. :)

    Ilang inches po ng cake ang kayang I bake?may nakita po aq kanina dto sa ocampo olongapo d q sure kung same clang model Pero 3,5t na..

  5. jie says:

    Hi ask ko.lang po…kc i purchased the same brand po…kso nung nagbake aq ng chocolate cake na ung recipr na grab ko sa youtube nagdeflate po ung cake…end product naging cakey brownie xa although still good…i bake po for 40mins sa 8×8 square pan q…at 150°C mud cake po xa dapat…at first half ng cooking nag rise po xa kso nung pahuli bumagsak po xa..bakit po kaya? thanks

    • lifein says:

      Hi Jie! If hindi ka nagkamali sa pagfollow ng amount ng ingredients, baka dahil sa ang baba ng temperature, usually pag cake ay 175 degrees Fahrenheit na kapag iconvert sa Celsius ay nagiging almost 250 degrees na. Baka kaya dahil doon?

      • jie says:

        hello po…sa actual recipe po kc they use 8″ round pan, cook for 2hrs at 150°C…i ask them po what if i use 8×8 square pan? sbi nya masyado daw pong maliit ung pan q…try q daw pong ihalf ung recipe which i did..then ni-less ko din po ung baking time kc maliit nmn daw ung pan ko..kaso un nga po yung end product nagfall sa center…btw po if nagbe bake po kau san po dapat nakatapat ung selector knob dun po ba sa baba? 6 o’clock position? and pina follow nyo din po ba ung time at temp sa original recipe? kasi may mga nababasa aq na if convection oven dapat either i-less ang temp or ang time kc mabilis daw po maluto? thanks po…

        • lifein says:

          Waaah, ano kaya nangyari dun. I’m puzzled, too. Actually, based on my experience mas matagal maluto pag convection oven kaya need i-adjust ang cooking time ng konti. tatagalan mo sya ng konti. yes, 6 o’clock position para may init sa taas at baba at may air na umiikot. :)

  6. Neri Ann says:

    Sis may nakita na ko ganito and dito lang sya sa Eastwood Mall malapit sa work! Sa DIY Shop. 2,7+ na sya with 5% off! OMG, kelangan ko ng bumili I just need the budget. He He He.

  7. Tracy says:

    Hi po. I just got the same oven. But as it is my first time to use convevtion oven and to bake for that matter, can you help me po with the heat selector? I dunno what to make them of. Like when do you use each selector? I’ll greatly appreciate your response. Thanks in advance :)

    • lifein says:

      Yung heat selector ay posisyon ng apoy. I always choose the one with the two flames, ibig sabihin nun magkakaroon ng apoy sa taas at baba ng oven tapos may mainit na hangin na umiikot. Yan daw yung convection, equal distribution of heat. :)

  8. bless mallari says:

    wil purchase one pagkakuha ng bonus. lol. will try some of your recipes :D

  9. iezah says:

    Plano ko din pong bumili nyan kaso I was wondering kung pwede po bang magbake ng cake sa convenction oven. Marami kasi akong nabasa na hindi sya advisable for baking cakes :'( meron po bang option yang oven na ioff yung fan? Really need your advice po. Thanks and God bless :)

    • lifein says:

      Yes, I’ve baked several cakes na using it. Okay naman kinalabasan. May option to turn off the fan but you know, it’s the fan that distributes heat for even cooking. :)

  10. cha says:

    gudeve po…ganan dn po oven…as i observed po sobrang taas po ng temperature pg finollow ung nsa recipe mas madali po masunog panu po b gmitin para nd nasusunog…minsan ksi sunog na ung ibabae pero nd p xa luto..sa cakes po sinasavi ko..tnxs po..nid your help..

    • lifein says:

      Yung temp sa Asahi convection oven ay nasa Celsius (250C max nya). If ang nakalagay sa recipe ay Fahrenheit, i-divide mo lang into 2. Like if 350F, gawin mong 175 sa oven na ito. So far, okay naman ang mga cakes na ginawa ko using this oven. :)

  11. cha says:

    ganun dn po mam ginawa ko…but the problem ..mas madali po nasusunog ung ibabaw actually nd ko n xa inaalis sa 100C ung temp.
    …..

  12. cha says:

    ok namn po texture nung ung ibabaw lng po tlaga nasusunog agad…5mins p lng brown n agad

  13. cha says:

    panu po iturn off ung fan

    • lifein says:

      Ilipat nyo po yung heat selector, doon sa isa lng yung apoy, kasi ang alam ko yung may dalawang apoy –6 oclock position– lang ang may fan sa lahat ng yun.

  14. cha says:

    100c n lng po ung temp pero mdli pdn msunog ung ibabaw po

    • lifein says:

      Try nyo po kaya ilagay doon sa pinakamababang tray. Medyo hindi ko na rin alam ano gagawin dyan, hehe. Kakaiba. Yung sa akin naman, hindi ako nakaencounter ng ganyan na madali masunog. Cake po ba or ibang pastry?

  15. vicky says:

    Im also looking for a convection oven…28l lng po b ang pnkamalaki ng asahi….is it better than imarflex

    • lifein says:

      Sorry, I don’t know, I haven’t checked the other sizes. I also don’t know if it’s better than Imarflex as I haven’t bought an Imarflex oven before.

  16. Chris Ibarra says:
