We bought an oblong pizza stone at Kitchen Collection. It stabilizes the heat for perfect biscuits.

Our last unit did not have an oven, it came with the convection microwave... I sure missed having a real oven.

I just wish mfg's would find a unit that is easier to light. It takes two people to get the pilot lit, and the person with the lighter has to be a contortionist.

I also use a dutch oven and have used my oven to make biscuits in the spring and fall when I'm to lazy to break the dutch oven out. I found that when I make the biscuits I turn the oven down about 50° lower than recipe calls for and bake them a bit longer also put a cookie sheet under them to delfect the heat to the sides of the oven more.

All our trailers have had an oven and everyone of them were used extensively.

that little oven

that little oven
in our mini-light is very cool
it does not cook exactly like our oven at home
man oh man do we enjoy it when we are out there camping
the last motorhome we owned
had the confection type oven
I did not care for it
give me the old fashioned kind that's been around forever

reminds me of when I was a paper boy
yes way back when
on those very cold mornings
I would fold papers in my grandfathers camper
with his oven on and open

Just this past weekend, my DW used our oven for the first time, and she said its a great oven. We did not use anything else or the pizza stone. This what came out of it

Our previous fiver (Sandpiper) had an over that we used extensively. Our Columbus has an over and in almost six months and 41 nights of camping...we haven't used our over once because of the convection oven. We had never used a convection oven before - but we're hooked.

In our previous oven...biscuits always burned on the bottom. With the convection oven, they bake to a perfect golden brown.

And...the pie above looks great!!

Got to have the oven, we barely use our stove top burners.
There's nothing like a good meal or snack coming out of the oven on a cold rainy day out camping...or when I'm too lazy to fire up the Q grill!

Pizza, cookies, biscuits, casseroles, pies...etc..

Couldn't find an unglazed tile at the box store I went to so got a glazed one. The oven worked much better-at least I didn't burn the rolls. Reason for saying to get an unglazed one?
