RV toaster oven?

We find with cooking less since it's just 2 of us, we like using the toaster oven at home a lot. It pulls a lot of electric, but less than the large oven.

Anyone know of a toaster oven built for RV use that pulls less electric? I doubt the one in our kitchen could be used in the 5th wheel.

I would think any toaster oven would work. You just have to remember "energy management". Most of us can't run the microwave and AC at the same time. I don't run our toaster, coffee pot and microwave at the same time especially if the water heater is on elec. Just think about what demands you are putting on the elec. circuit and you should be fine.

I would assume any built for the home would work in an RV. Should be designed to work on a standard 15A receptacle just like your trailer has. With that being said, if you are on 30A service, don't try to use any other appliances simultaneously. You should be able to run it with the AC on, but not AC and anything else like the microwave, a coffee pot, crock pot, etc. AC will likely pull around 15 amps, the toaster oven probably the same- so you are pretty much maxed out with those 2. Keep in mind that if you are using incandescent bulbs still, you will likely be pulling 10 amps or so there if you have most of the camper lights on. Consider the fridge as well if running on electricity. I am assuming water heater will be running on gas- if not, yet another thing to consider.

We have used small toaster ovens for years without a problem.
DW likes certain features on an oven, but nothing big or fancy.

Been using a regular household toaster oven on boats and RV for 15 years, some with 30amp and some with 50amp power. As previously mentioned, just be aware of the power requirements and plan accordingly. We use a set of TV mounts from CW to secure the oven to the counter top and it stays in place, hasn't moved in about 40,000 miles.

We use a Cuisinart Convection oven simular to this one in our fifth wheel. The convection feature provides quick warm up and very even cooking. It is fairly compact, yet large enough for main dish cooking.

Just buy a cheapy from Welfare-Mart and as others said, be aware of the amperage draw\power drain.
