Great! No good deed goes unpunished. I mentioned this thread to the wife. She was surprised that we have a convection oven/micro wave oven in the coach. After understanding what she has, she now wants one in the coach house at the resort where we own a lot! Using male logic I pointed out that she has never used the current convection oven in 6+ years we've had the coach. When at the resort, the coach is always there with us. Using female logic she said she would use it more if there was one in the coach house too.

Are there any females reading this thread that can help me with this? I'm confused.

Lizzy says the new ones will out-cook the older models, we have had both. One with a shelf is a great plus, gives you a variance of cooking temps. She says there is a learning curve, she got thru it pretty quick, has not used a gas oven in years, even tho we have had one in the last three coaches .
Other than the above post on boondocking, they are the better choice by far...

We've cooked using all three for Thanksgiving but could probably have done without the gas oven. Still it's nice to have just in case. As mentioned- in the mean time- it's great storage.

both of us really like or convection/micro
we cook pizza, fries, biscuits, cakes, cheese cake (omg divine if we are LEVEL ),
even did roast once.

we have used our stove maybe 10 times

did i mention mary b's biscuits...yum yum yum

if we cant cook it outside on the grill then we will use the convection oven
i have a hobby of eating,
so I am biased

did use the mix part once to cook a chicken and didnt really get it right so we use the convection part to cook all but popcorn

OK folks, you've convinced her! It looks like about 95%+ like the convection/microwave. That's good enough. We're trying to close on a Class A now that has just the convection/microwave. Thank all of you for your input! God bless!

I am a pretty good cook, have a convection oven at home and it's not one bit faster than tradtional. I have not used the micro/convection in the MH yet but we will be on the road for 3 months soon. I am not confident of it but this thread convinces me otherwise. I read someplace on here that it takes forever to preheat. Is that true?

My wife says she likes the convection oven. We have one at home and one in the RV. If she likes them I like them!!

Love our convection/microwave combo. Took a little getting use to, but would not consider a gas oven now. Like having the extra storage drawers under the range top.

Most of our cooking is outside. We replaced the gas stove with a dishwasher. Next i plan to replace the microwave with a combo convection oven.

We store the dishes, cups and silverware in the dishwasher. Works great.

My wife is so happy with the micro/convection in our coach, that we replaced the oven space with a dishwasher.

We have both and use both. DW likes using the microwave for some things and the gas oven for roasts and casseroles. We ordered the gas 3 burner Ammana/oven, the other choice was a electric two burner with dishwasher. We would never use the dishwasher, we only use our coach for a few summer weeks and the odd weekend so paper is perfect. I know the combo convection in our Discovery would not let you use the micro until the oven had cooled down after convection use, seemed to be an annoyance??

I also insisted on the propane oven in addition to the micro/convection in 2007 when we bought our Winnebago 35L. We weaned ourself off it (we both cook) so that when we purchased our current Country Coach, we could live without it. We have NO problem living without it and like others on this thread enjoy the extra cupboard space. We have supplemented the 2 burner stove and convection with a toaster oven and an electric frying pan, and we can cook ANYTHING we could cook at home -- we just have to think it out before we start.
