Is the convection oven worth it?

Is the convection oven worth it?
OK.... I don't expect you to answer me so go ask your dear wives the question and get back to me.

We are considering replacing our microwave with one.
I think they consider then a combo microwave / convection oven.
Is this right?
Hopefully it will be a plug an play install in my 2012 378ts.
What make and model please.
Thanks

I'm not asking DW cause I'm the cook in the family . IMO microwave/convection ovens are great. We have one, plus the oven in our stove is convection. They cook just like a regular oven but more evenly and quicker. They have a regular plug so 'plug and play install' is easy. One word of caution, because you can cook at high temps in a microwave/convection make sure you have adequate ventilation top, sides, and in the back.

I do agree on having adequate ventilation! Very important.

We have one in the Beast and feel it's the only way to go. Most of the time camping I'll grill outdoors, but for nachos or other indoor meals it's great. Furthermore we really like the extra storage not having an oven gives us. In the 10 years we had our Jayco TT, we never used the oven just the cooktop.

Plug and play installation makes it quick and easy.

How much storage? Size wise?
