371 dishes? Is roast turkey one of them or do you have to pay more than 140,000 to get an oven large enough to roast a turkey?

I suppose, like most microwaves, its main use will be reheating coffee and tea.

Dim sum can be cooked in a rice cooker over the rice. Save your money.

Seems a bit high in price. My old stove broke down to many times SO I purchased a cheap Black & Decker small stove for thing like cook for 10 or 30 minutes & has worked for past 4 yrs, but must admit the hotplates on the old oven work & besides I do have a Microwave.

"Popular Chinese dim sum"? Is it so common for Japanese households to feast on a plate of beef tripe dumplings or chicken feet for dinner?
