EZ bake oven!!!

can anyone tell me why then even bother to put these things in trailers. You might as well try to cook with a light bulb. You might even get more even cooking with a light bulb. The oven i have in the trailer is made by Surburban. We are camping right now and my wife tried cooking some cinnamon rolls this morning. At the lowest temp which is 300 degrees the bottoms were burnt in about 5-7 minutes and so she took them out and flipped them with a spatula to kinda cook the other side. We've also had this experience cooking biscuits in our last trailer. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would have rathered a convection microwave with just a stove top then this thing, but it's too late for that now.

some have tried putting alrge 12x12 unglaxed tile on the rack over the burner to help smooth out the heat.
our oven has a very low setting of 225 and seems to cook pretty well.

We have had some decent luck with the tiles. I went to Home Depot (or Lowes) and picked up 4 - 6x6 (or similar size) tiles and put them across the bottom of the oven. I can't say that it has completely fixed the uneven heating but it has helped.

As you noted, it seems to burn things on the edges pretty quickly.

We actually use ours more as a second oven when we are cooking for family gatherings than camping. It cooks up my wife's baked beans perfectly, and on trips does fine with the cinnamon rolls.

We use a lare pizza stone and set it on the metal shelf that is directly above the burner.

It helps spread the heat instead of concentrating it in the middle.

We use a microwave, always had problems lighting the oven, so we gave up. Most of our cooking is done on the fire ring ( out side ). When bad weather hits we go out to eat. I guess that's not true camping!

I'll try for pics, but it might be a couple days.

I put the tiles right on the metal bottom of the oven. However, I do NOT cover the slits down either side - the oven flame does need to breathe. This is why we went with the smaller tiles.
