I'm really amazed and thankful for all the responses. I had no idea I'd get this many posts. We are almost decided - though haven't ordered yet. Maybe next week. We are probably going to go without the oven. We are a family of 6, and when my wife puts a big enough skillet on the oven/cooktop combo, it hangs 1/2 off the stove plus there is no room for another pot or pan. With the cooktop option, we can use 2x burners at a time. Also, we bake a lot while camping, but that is what we use the dutch oven for. With 4 kids, if they want a cake or biscuits, they can also clean the cast iron...
. Thanks for all the input though, it has helped us clearly see the downside of not getting one.
