Celestine, thanks for the links, but I'm not puzzled by the search for little-known brands.
Rem, Your advice to make inquiries at service centers is good, practical, but under my conditions it is not very feasible. We do not have such centers nearby. I intend to buy indirectly, through an Internet store in Moscow, to the address of my country neighbors who live and work in Moscow, and who have not yet closed the summer season and are visiting the country. I think that others who have similar centers nearby will use this useful advice.
Gypsy: "what kind of nonsense .. put it in the stove and she will bake it .. she doesn’t think that you slipped her a creamy sunflower over there."
- so it may be so, but not at all .... The stove does not care, no doubt, but our body, yes, not all the same. However, this is already a topic for a separate conversation, and does not relate to this topic ...
patrold, thanks for the tip, I really am inclined to buy the 1288th brand, but not because it is stainless steel, but because it is more spacious and powerful, has more impressive characteristics, in a word.
Thanks everyone , who in one way or another helped me to understand the essence of the issue, it helped me a lot. I had doubts that the automatics and programs would be capricious and refuse to operate the stove in cases of deviations from the recipe, but, as I understood, this is not entirely true. The stove will work in case of such deviations, but what will be laid down at the "entrance" will come back to haunt at the "exit". Blaming the stove in this case, of course, will be pointless.
Below I will explain my logic for choosing a brand.
It helped, significantly clarified my choice, oddly enough - the article on the link on this forum, which describes the history of world brands in our market. I decided to double-check the facts stated there regarding the company that interested me. The best option, in such cases, is to directly contact the original source, and I looked at the website of the company itself, since it has a Russian-language version.
Here are excerpts from there:
“1990 - Rolsen Electronics started its activity in 1990 in Seoul (South Korea) as an independent enterprise. At the first stage, large investments in production and research and development became a priority area of development.
1995 - Rolsen is the first foreign company to open in Russia the production of TV sets LG, JVC, Thomson, Toshiba, Philips, Daewoo, Funai.
1999 - entering the Russian market with its own trade mark - Rolsen
Rolsen Electronics manufactures 13 types of goods, has 12 structural divisions around the world with a total of more than 7300 employees.
Now, under the Rolsen brand in Russia, more than 40 models of TVs with diagonals from 14 to 34 inches, DVD players and DVD recorders, plasma panels and LCD TVs, home theaters, air conditioners, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens are produced. (including bread makers - my approx.), video tape recorders, audio equipment, wired telephones, mp3 Flash players.
The expansion of Rolsen Electronics throughout Russia is growing every year.
Currently, more than 350 Rolsen dealers operate in 197 cities of Russia. The network of Rolsen service centers (it is one of the most extensive in the country) provides an opportunity to repair equipment wherever a consumer can purchase it. The warranty period for equipment under the Rolsen brand is from one to three years, depending on the product range. "
The network of service centers in Russia is really impressive. Information that the brand of the company is allegedly "Invented in 1995 by a graduate of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology", turned out to be an ordinary journalistic "Duck". "Come up with" the brand of the company in 1995, which has already existed for at least 5 years, is perhaps not difficult: it is enough to translate the name of the company from Korean into Russian, and then, if he speaks both languages, and there was no translator from the Korean company itself ... The graduate could still cope with this, I admit. But what's next? Proceeding from everyday logic, it is clear (at least for me) that this graduate could not organize anything in this direction either himself, even if he "Seven spans in the forehead", nor with the help of his father - a large oligarch (suppose he has one).Since the organization of such a production, and especially an extensive network, is a very costly business, risky, requiring huge investments, engineering thought, the return on which is expected only in some historical perspective, after tens of years. Our oligarchs, as is well known, prefer not to take risks, as they are used to "Cut coupons" from the sale of raw materials, or at least semi-finished products from them. Partly because, own production in this direction (TVs, household appliances, etc.) "Copper basin"... As known, "A holy place is never empty", So the Koreans were in a hurry, they organized both production and service network, etc. In contrast to other world companies, in particular, popular on this site. They are confident in their potential to compete with other leading global brands. This instills confidence in the reliability of this brand's products. Due to the fact that the assembly, even if only "screwdriver", is established in our company, it is their products that are maximally adapted to our market, simplified, and russified. Well done. Worthy of respect. Of course, in the city, sometimes the hostess wants to “show off” a fancy expensive item of a prestigious brand in front of her friends, but in rural outback there is no one to “sparkle” with such things, and there is no need. Here, in the first place - reliability, ease of use, minimum distraction of human attention and time to this matter.
Approximately this is my logic of choosing this brand, and not another, more advertised, or vice versa, little-known. However, this is just my choice, my point of view, which does not claim to be the ultimate truth.
