My only complaint with the convection/microwave is the cooling fan noise. We have a 16 year old Sharp in the MH and a new GE Profile in our home kitchen. I like the GE so much that I'm going to buy another one for the MH. Like any oven, there is a learning curve. Once you get a feel for how it cooks, it feels every bit as natural as a conventional oven.

I would not be with out it. When using the convection only it is just like a regular oven. You may need to experiment with your model as most find either a shorter cooking time or lowering the oven temp by 25 degrees works for them. When baking preheat, use the rack. READ the manual.
I've only used Sharp brand. It was the first thing we changed out in our used 5th wheel and Ron Jones that the reason we moved to a MH was so I could have a full size one that would hold a 9x13 pan

We have one, not sure what make or model it is. We were not excited about it at first but after 6 months full time we have learned how to use it and love it only down side of that vs a gas oven is we tend to boondock a lot and with a gas oven i can do things with power that i can not do in the convection oven unless I plan on running the gennie. Full hook up it is great, boondocking takes a little planning.

I use a hibatchi grill with cast iron in place ov the gas oven, Still have a gas stove so all is fine off shorepower, just takes a little forethought is all.

best thing we got for the oven was things like these........ Robot Check microwave safe, good for baking, light, take up next to no space.if i could use them on the grill i would own nothing else.

I agree with the comment that it works much better that any of our RV LP ovens ever did.

We use our convection/microwave oven all the time. I've yet to find something that it won't do.

We have a Frigidare micro/convection oven in a new my. Tried to cook a chicken pot pie brought from home . Innards were hot, but the crust that usually get nicely brown in toaster over, was pale and doughy. As with MSHappy campers, I will have to practice more to make it useful !

Liked the Sharp convection/micro that came in our '04 Diplomat, but when it started acting up was happy to replace with a Whirlpool unit that is 70% bigger on the inside and MUCH quieter based on new technology. Chose to have this one vented to the outside which was definitely worthwhile.

Thank you Nana25K. I have so much to learn on this adventure. Not pre heating was a definite mistake! Will try again soon ��

Another nice thing about the convection/micro units is that they typically have a mixed mode where it bakes but you can also have the micro run at 10-30% power. I sometimes use that on meats or frozen lasagna to speed things up.
