    How do people in Seoul cook at home if they don't have an oven?

    Or is going out for food the main thing?

    My friends in Seoul have a gigantic apartment, especially by Korean standards. Their kitchen has a normal refrigerator, a kimchi refrigerator, and a range with a tiny oven.

    Meanwhile, one of the few things my current landlord has ever promptly fixed was the oven. When I was looking at it before I moved in, I noticed the oven door didn't seal shut. The landlord just bought a new oven to replace it. I suspect this is because, compared to the other stuff, you can really get in trouble for not having a working oven I guess?

    Yeah, you cook with your stove.

    Baked food like we think of it isn't really a Thing for Korean cuisine for the most part.

    My mother in law uses her oven to store things. All of her cooking is done on the stove top. All of it.

    From what I can tell, it's an Asian thing? Being completely generalised and stereotypical.

    Ah that's fair enough.

    My parents are Indian, so the oven AND the stove get used a lot.

    I can get you a good recipe that involves rice, chicken, cream of mushroom soup, and Ritz crackers that you bake in an oven.

    Results will vary depending on your cooker, might as well give it a shot to see how well it goes

    I honestly don't ever really cook with the oven myself

    I have a toaster oven I use for some things, but I'm almost entirely a stovetop cooker

    My roommate uses the oven a bunch, but there's very little I make in it (and those things are generally like, frozen foods that have been pre-made like french fries and pizzas)

    I guess roasts happen once a week or so? Baking rarely? I almost exclusively use the hob and grill really, ain't need to roast none for a curry.

    I think the majority of the thread knows who the real taste criminal is.

    Sweet potato fries are fine...but they are a very different food from regular fries, and really shouldnt be compared.

    I don't think I have ever seen a house/flat without an oven. Kinda assumed they were standard

    from what I hear it's super common across the pond in Europe to have a tiny range and maybe a microwave, and a dorm fridge

    they do not do eating like Americans do eating I guess?

    Japan in particular the kitchen is basically a fucking closet

    My stepdad and stepbrothers apparently used their oven for years exclusively as a place to stash empty pizza boxes, so they wouldn't all just transform into Bug Playgrounds on the floor by the trash can. They would do this until there were so many of them crammed in there that somebody had to stop being a lazy ass and haul them out to the curb for trash pickup. It was logical, in a very stupid single-dad-with-four-teenage-sons-at-home kind of way.

    The first time after they got married that my mom tried to preheat the oven, you know, to actually cook some food, she started the kitchen on fire.

    I will have sweet potato fries over regular fries any day of the week.

    Sprinkle some brown sugar on them.

    Or heck, go the other way and toss them with rosemary, garlic, and olive oil.

    The best.

    whoa. that induction hob.

    it's good enough for steamboat? We're thinking about getting a tabletop burner with the propane canisters like they have at the restaurants.

    but if we could get a portable induction hob like that which works well enough....
