First time using the gas oven.

We went camping this past weekend and we decided on Saturday night we needed some desert! We ran to the grocery store and purchased a apple pie to bake. We got back to the camper and lit the oven! I didn't think about it being the first time we had used it and opened the door to put in the pie. The smoke alarm went off! LOL At least we know the smoke detector works!!

Another suggestion is buying a pizza stone such as a pampered chef and leave it in the oven to help evenly cook your meals!

Been there, done that! This was my first oven, so I didn't think about it. The furnace, on the other hand, I should have known about. It finally got cold enough to check it a few weeks ago so I fired it up when I got home from work..about 4AM. I don't THINK I woke anyone up. My smoke detector is about 6" from the wall and about 3' from the edge of the slide. I had my slide in and had a heck of a time getting to the detector to pull the battery....glad nobody had a video camera.

If you can't afford a pizza stone, go to HD or Loews and get some ceramic tiles. non glazed preferred. They work just like the stone.

Pizza stones and tile can crack from the bouncing caused by out nations "wonderful" highways and back roads. I use an 'air bake' cookie sheet which also takes away the hot spots and makes for a more even baking.

While some consider an oven a useless item in their campers, I enjoy fresh WARM baked goods right out of the oven in the fall, winter and spring. I must admit it is too dang hot in Florida to bake in the summer.
