    I don't use my conventional gas oven because it makes the kitchen too hot. However, I recently bought an infra-red oven, which you place on the counter top and I find it ideal for my limited amount of oven cooking without making everything else too hot.

    I use mine, cakes, cookies, bread  sometimes for the neighborhood as I dont think anyone on the block has an oven.

    Sure you can; indirect cooking is essentially baking

    Our oven hasn’t worked for years and we rarely used it when it did. My wife doesn’t use it to cook her food and I don’t use it to cook my stuff but others would seem to die without an oven.  Depends on the people. You could always get a counter convection oven if need be.

    Every dominican cocina needs an oven. Where else would your store your pots and pans?

    Well, if you buy a dominican POS, you can expect it to look cheap and ungainly, but it will oddly last way beyond what you expect it to. You'll likely beat it to the grave. But, everybody will assume you're dominican poor and you won't be robbed.

    Or, you can buy a high end, European model which will give you a hernia carrying it into the house, but look marvelous. People will assume that you have excess cash and now you are fair game for robbery. If you have a dog, say goodbye, as he's likely to be poisoned in one of the attempts.

    So, buy something along the looks/price gradient that you can live with, but in line with your security measures.

    My wife has turned our dish washer into a place to store fruits and vegatables... maybe the wave of the future on DR
