I do like the oven when I'm in the mood for a soft cookie, though.

A convection oven is basically an electric oven with a fan to circulate the heat. So yes it browns the meat.

However big your oven unit is. Our old 2004 Fleetwood popup came with a micro/convection oven and a cooktop but no regular oven. The space the regular oven would've taken up under the cooktop was turned into a storage cabinet which added alot of space.

We have one in our house and I can't tell much difference in it and the regular oven. Maybe I just don't cook the right things. My wife doesn't seem to be sold on it either.

Ours is a Sharp combo in our 2011. After getting a little use to using it, it works just as good for us as the gas oven found in rvs. Seems to have much better temp control, is a little faster in it's cooking and a great deal more storage space under the cooktop. Think it's all about just getting comfortable with the new technology.

Thanks. I found a BOSCH model that has greeat reviews but costs $600 plus bucks! Stainless over the range version. Same exact size for install as the Sharp.
Bosch Model HMV8051U

We also have the Sharp combo model in our 2011' and it works fine. It's taken a little to get used to the technology, but we like it. Went to a seminar at Lazydays last year which helped the learning process!

Can you tell me if it is vented to the outside or not?
Also if you have the model number I'd like to look it up.
Should look like FGMV154CLF or something close
Lowes has this one for $499
Stainless Steel
