Smile Rv oven

Carol and I would like to use our RV oven more effectively. We would like to know how to better regulate our temperatures, as it seems to burn everything on the middle bottom. I have heard talk of putting a ceramic tile in the oven to better regulate the temperature. Does this work ,and if so how large a tile should I use. Do you have any suggestions on securing it so it remains in place and does not break. It is a shame to have the oven, and not be able to effectively use it. Thanks for your help in advance.

We also had the same issue, and bought a pizza stone that just fits in the oven (oven is 14.5 inches and the stone is 14). Made a huge difference, temperature is more even and no more burning of things in the center (hate burning a Pastie!). We leave our stone in the oven and last summer we spent 3 weeks traveling around Colorado, no issues with it breaking. The oven does take a bit longer to get up to temperature, but once it's there, it works great.

We have the pizza stone, no more burned bottoms on rolls. Last week while on use at 425 deg. it cracked in half. It still works broken.

You should under stand why a tile or stone helps the temperature. They have mass and can act as a heat sink and a heat shield. The heat sink keeps the temperature from changing too much due to opening and closing the door. The shield keeps the flame/heating element from being so close to the food that it gets burned by direct heat. An evenly cooked batch of rolls is accomplished much better by indirect heat.

Same here, got it at an outlet store very cheap.

Some folks just use a UNGLAZED clay tile from the home improvement stores (Lowes, Home Depot, Mennards, Et-al)
Home is where I park it!

Added two 6x6 tiles laying them on the centerline of the oven on the solid rack. Did not attach; aids in cleaning oven. JM2...

You can use an air pan for biscuits cookies etc I dont have tile or a pizza stone. Since using the air pan I dont burn anything on the bottom. Downside is if you want to use a different kind of dish like for a casserole the air pan won't help...unless maybe if you set the dish on the air pan. Never tried it.
