We saw to things:

1. Took a few minutes longer to heat up.

2. Temps were slightly more even across the oven.

(Ours fits with only a small amount of space around the edges)

When I measured the inside of my oven, I measured 14.5 by 15.5. I saw that stone and grumbled because I didn't think it would fit. Is it convenient for you to measure that stone and verify that it really is 16" wide?? Maybe that's just what they said on the box?!

I've always wanted to try an oven stone but my camper is on a seasonal year round property and does not get towed. I use the top burners only. Salem Grand Villa 40FLFB. I have 3 gas weber grills, 2 weber teardrops, 1 electric meat smoker, 1 charcoal meat smoker, 1 weber Smokey Joe and my favorite is the 22 inch dual truck rims with custom made cove for beer can chicken. If I can't cook it, I won't eat it.

We purchased this from American Metalcraft PS1416 Rectangular Pizza Baking Stone 14" x 16"


With Stone:
Ramped oven to 350 deg - 20 mins.
3 Temp Probes in different locations: All within 2 deg
Oven was set to 350 - controlled to 360 +-6 deg

Without Stone:
Ramped oven to 350 deg - 16 mins.
3 Temp Probes in different locations: All within 8 deg - center was hottest spot (as expected - stone test had the higher temps to outside edge)
Oven was set to 350 - controlled to and average of 355 +-8 deg


The important part is no burnt bottoms:



did the stone cover the holes in that divider above the heating element?

One thing I read suggested you should not cover those holes. It was not clear why, so I wondered. Looks like your results were fine with the holes covered.

I had a $.88 ceramic tile in ours. It lasted about 500 miles and several oven firings. The last trip we set up the camper and the wife opened the oven and our tile was in three pieces. I don't know if the heat weakened it or the ride broke it or the combination was too much for it. It seemed to make the oven temp more consistent though.
