Totally agree! I would never use a public facility when I can use my own. I know who the last person was to use it and it's much cleaner.

Made all sorts of cornbread in my portable camper oven, first the one you put over the burner over the stove, then the one with its own 1-lb cylinder of propane. Also made cookies, bread, cake, etc. also used the Dutch oven over the fire, which we still do. But it's a lot easier to just turn on the oven in the TT in the morning and whip something up! My favorite in the Dutch oven is peach cobbler, followed closely by freshly baked bread. It just doesn't get any better than that! These can both be made in the TT oven, but it's not nearly as much fun.

trudinator: I am sure when you bake some breads the whole campground is after you for the nice fresh baked bread. You cannot beat the smell of bread cooking!

I haven't noticed a big diference but I run an electric plug in fan for the most part instead of using the A/C. I usually like cooler foods when it's hot so I can't say I have used the oven much during summer.

Now days most Toaster Ovens are big enough to cook a pizza. We just tag along a little toaster oven. Can even plug it in outside if heat is a concern

I use mine on a regular basis. I have an apartment style propane stove in mine though.

We use our oven all the time. Only complaint is that your really have to be carefull with heat. We've burnt quite a few things until we figured out exactly how to set it.

We like to cook while camping - not your ordinary campers fare like hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. I'm talking prime rib in the Dutch Oven. Smoked Pork. Mushroom stuffed tenderloin. Homemade pasta. Fresh pizza on the grill. We always seem to have lots of interested parties in the campground when we hang the $90 prime rib over the fire. The first one was kind of scary, but we've made so many now that its routine. And we did burn the first loaf of bread we tried. But it's so much fun to see what we can do over a campfire.

The ignitor on the top of the stove does not light the oven. To light the oven, it is necessary to light the pilot at the rear, center of the oven with a match or lighter. Hold the knob in the pilot position for a few seconds to ensure that the thermocouple is heated. The adjust the oven control to the desired temperature.
