A blog about all my cooking issues? I already had one massive problem with the crock pot and wrote about that. But You may be right, it's about time to write about all my uncooked food... Honestly, Betty Crocker has nothing on me at home but a fiver makes me mortal in the kitchen. Dang it. Maybe I can also explain what happened to the oven tile after we got it. The oven is still heatless. And heartless.

Ok, one of the next blogs will be about the fancy miniature appliances.

Also get an oven thermometer. We discovered that a 350 setting resulted in a 300 actual temp. That & the tile solved my problems with baking.

We bought a portable induction cooktop from Costco....best money I have spent in a while...heats water in about a minute or less.....The other thing we have replaced is the shower head....we put in a Oxygenics shower head......greatly improves the water delivery...those can be reviewed and bought on Amazon.... And if you haven't already...think about protecting your rig with a surge protector, especially given that your living in it full time for a bit.....Good luck with your adventure.

Is there any chance a portable induction cook top catches food on fire the way the microwave does? I just feel like right now the camper is winning... Harrumph

be careful with those tiles.. we had a pizza stone shatter in ours. no big deal, but it scared the bejeebers outta us when it popped! it was a cheap one that we bought from the grocery store. we now have a much thicker (and pricier) one that i found on Amazon and haven't used the oven much since (we now bake outside) but it seems like it'll be much better.

BTW--most of our baking nowadays is in either the convection oven, or in the Camp Chef Pizza Oven (not their outdoor oven--the PIZZA one).

Hi Becky, and a belated welcome to the forum.

I read a few of your blog posts and got a good chuckle from Arco, and a chuckle from the "dog's dish."

Keep posting. I need it.

Go home and place this tile inside the oven directly above the burner on the heat plate. Leave it there forever. Now, when you cook something this tile will absorb and even the heat out. Things will cook great from now on.
Thanks for the tip!! That is one thing that always annoyed us in our old camper. Will definitely do this in the new 5th.

The induction cook top cools of very quickly. There is also a TFal non stick frying pan specifically for induction cook top http://www.amazon.com/T-fal-E9389784...onal+induction
