I've never used a convection oven before and neither has my wife. I do know that we've used the oven in our RV on just about every trip so we need to be able to bake even if it's just some onion rings to go with the burgers. How do these things work for baking and do you have to fire up the generator to run it just like you would if you were microwaving something?

Boy Max:

We just skirted that Year by one...don't have a clue what they're all about...but rest assured, someone will pipe up with some insight on them. I know for the house they're the cat's meow, but I've also heard they're kinda a PITA for a RV.

Just for poops and grins, I'm wondering if WW would offer a credit for NOT installing one so you could use te $$$'s to buy a regular oven....or they may have smarted up and decided to offer a choice- don't be shy in asking!

Good luck!

Sean

We have a GE Profile Convection microwave and have not used the regular oven in years, other than to store extra large pots and pans. We use the convection MW to bake cakes, cookies, broil chicken and generally bake or broil anything that you would do in a regular oven.

Just make the manual for the MW your best friend for a while and you'll love to use it.

That thing runs strictly on AC right, no propane?

Correct on the "AC only".

Thank goodness we have a real gas oven. Lady Di uses it all the time and we never use
the microwave.

If you're in a place where you can't use the generator or power hookup....... you're screwed.

Do you still have a choice to go with a gas oven?

I doubt it and even if you did, then you wouldn't have a microwave since the convection oven is installed where the gas oven would normally go. I guess you could rebuild the cabinets and wire in a microwave above though. I hate firing up a generator just to bake a few muffins. I've got a small Honda EU1000 generator that I always take for battery charging, it's the only generator I have since my camper doesn't have an onboard unit. But even my friends with generators prefer to use mine for battery charging since it's so quiet and runs forever on a quart of fuel. Mine won't run the microwave though and I'm sure it won't run the convection oven either so I kinda doubt I'll like the convection oven option.
