Here's that micro-vection-toaster-grill-dehydrator you were asking for (smartphone-controllable, too).

  1. BUT you won't be able to operate it because the instructions will be poorly translated from Korean (possibly by way of Esperanto)

      (Side note: Esperanto has just turned 125 years old)

    2. Problem of attractive models....are that I wasn't looking at the microwave. :P

      Anyway, I am not sure if this is just a bad design. A lot of people, especially Americans, do not appreciate the space restraint which Koreans and Japanese face. So if they can replaced 5 appliances with one, why not? Not only time is money, space is also money too.

      Especially at 3:15 for kitchen.

        Damn, my microwave does all that except dehydrate though I think mine can steam, who knows what else it can do, I can't read the instructions yet. I can't use it from a smartphone either :( It is domed to mimic a bread/pizza oven though. Still have only used it as a microwave though, eventually I will make bread, I now have all the ingredients and a bread pan :P

          Wow. Cool. I am jealous.

          Your fiance can. Oh it must be made and market for a Japanese customer base.

            I think all microwaves can dehydrate. I think it's just a matter of juggling the power and time.

        2. I can see it now...the owner takes some fish or some chicken out of the refrigerator, puts it in a pan with some seasonings, and puts it in the oven...and then goes to work. Just before leaving work he dials up his oven to turn it on to cook it at a low temperature (so it won't overcook, lest he get stuck in traffic).

          What could possibly go wrong?
