Cooking in the oven

I have a 2014 Sunseeker and I was wondering if anyone else was having problems cooking in the oven. I've used it four times and each time I've burned the food. Just thinking that since the oven space is smaller it heats up too much. Next time I will take out what I'm cooking 10 minutes early. Any feedback would be helpful and happy travels to everyone.

You have to cut times down and really watch the food. Raw chicken takes less time because the oven is so much smaller than the home oven.

Wrapping the outside (yes outside) of the pan with aluminum foil will also help. Especially when baking.

Thanks for the response. I was thinking I needed to cut down the time. I know when I baked some biscuits I checked a couple minutes before they were ready and they were burned.

The foil on the outside of the pan really helps for biscuits!

Foil on the outside of the pan works as does using a pizza stone on the rack. Another thing that has worked when I bake cinnabuns is placing the pan of cinnabuns on top of an upside down disposable round pie tin.

A pizza stone makes a huge difference in more even heat.

For pans of cinnamon rolls, my wife used disposable pans and put parchment paper on the bottom of them before she added the raw cinnamon rolls. They were literally the best she's ever made (and it's a 10+ year Christmas morning tradition for us).

She also made filling balls (aka stuffing) on Christmas Day and again, they were AWESOME! The pizza stone really helps.

very very common problem when cooking with RV oven.

1) The bottoms of the biscuits will cook (burn) faster, so use a cooking stone.

2) The dear wife enjoys cooking the biscuits "on top of the stove", in a little butter. Cook one side, flip over and cook the other side. The biscuit will 'rise' and they are perfect.

many RV owners use a pizza stone or a ceramic tile in their ovens.
