Convection microwave -- yea or nay??

just bought (haven't even taken delivery yet) a Forester 3011DS.

It has a convection microwave which we have never used before. How do these things perform? Good Micro bad oven, bad Micro good oven??

Don't use the oven in our present MH much but do like a pizza now and then. Will the convection do take and bake pizza?? Not really concerned about frozen but do like a fresh one every now and then.

Any comments or suggestions appreciated.

In the last three MH's we've had GE Advantium 120 micro/convection ovens. DW won't have anything else in the RV and neither will I. For some reason she doesn't insist on one in the stick house, maybe because we have a full size gas stove and regular microwave.

Works a lot better than the LP gas range oven that we only store bread and chips in now.

We love our convection oven. We also make our own pizza from our own ingredient's, nothing store brought all hand made. It comes out perfect!!! We are full-time, and my wife uses it all the time, making everything from bakes roasts, chicken, salmon, cakes, brownie's and her own sticky buns (they are the best!!). We do not pre-heat the oven, but just set the time and bake. Our original unit was a Dometic when we order our 5th wheel new. We replaced it last year with the GE Cafe. It has two rack's that make it easier to cook with multiple dishes on three levels.Your other question, both the Dometic and the GE microwave works very good too. As far as the space where the LP oven was, I installed an 18" apartment size dishwasher there. That got me a ton of brownie points! Again we love ours!!!!

Hope this helps and God bless,
Mike

Our Sharp is the original and I had only one repair to it. Not bad for 28 year old oven. It is a electric oven with a microwave built in and works great at both. Far better than the gas oven alone. Please read the manual first as you can have both on at the same time.

The big thing about convection ovens is to not be afraid of them and just try stuff. Many may find this hard to believe, but I can now cook, pork chops, chicken and ribeye steak better in my convection than I do on the BBQ. I use one of those black grill mats, cut down to fit the round rack in the convection oven, under the mat when I cook. The juices stay on the mat, the meat browns beautifully and everything is nice and juicy.

We also loved our convection. Everything you can bake in a regular oven can be done in the convection.

I have nothing bad to say about our covection/microwave. We never use it, use the conventional oven, there is nothing wrong with the convection oven, just haven't used it.

Many of my customers liked the Micro/convection ovens so well, they bought one for their house. We had one in our 1989 motorhome and my wife hated it. It was lousy. 1998 Pace came with one and my wife loves it.

Our MH had a convection/microwave in it when we bought it. My wife has had a problem learning to use the convection part, but as you can see from the responses, most folks love them!
