planning to buy an electric oven. some questions in my mind: which brand is good and how much will the use of oven raise my electricity bill.

the first thing i'll probably cook in an oven is potato gratin lol.

It would depend on the size of the oven you plan to get...
table top ovens have a range of about 2000 to 3000 watts.
full size ovens can reach up to 5000 watts.

Current Meralco rates is Php 12 per kWh
a small 2000-watt oven would consume about Php 24 per hour of use.
a full size 5000-watt oven can use up to Php 60 per hour

@ 350
not as expensive as i thought. thanks!

i am eyeing an imarflex oven at festi. dunno if imarflex ovens are good, but i suppose it's enough for my needs.

the most durable ovens are those made by La Germania
ours is a 60L capacity oven and is more than 20 years old... no body rust, no chipped porcelain coating and heating elements are still available.

i bought a la germania range hood recently and the salesman told me that they use the good kind of stainless steel so its more resistant to rust than other brands.  seems to be true with your experience

my first coffee maker is this is what i see after 3 cups of coffee , is this normal or should i change my water provider




Unless you are using distilled water, thats normal. Wouldn't worry about it.

Actually he should be worried... because that part of the coffee maker doesn't really get hot.
I use filtered tap water for our coffee machine and we don't get any residue on the water reservoir.

Filtering won't help. Minerals in solution can only be removed by distillation. Thats just calcium carbonates and calcum phosphates anyway. Harmless, but if it really bothers the OP, use distilled water.
That's precisely my point, I only use filtered tap water and yet my coffee maker doesn't get any calcium deposits on the reservoir... my guess is that your provider is using "hard water" (or deep well water) hence my recommendation to change provider. Your coffee maker will eventually become inefficient if the heating plate becomes encrusted with too much calcium deposits.

Distilled water will make coffee taste more bitter...

My coffee maker gets some limescale buildup after a while even when using filtered water. I just use a limescale removal solution specifically formulated for coffee makers once in a while as part of regular maintenance.

Hey, I think using distilled water is a good idea. I guess, that's what I'm going to do from now on.
