Converting oven to pan storage

We never use our propane oven and we would really like to use it to store our cookware. We aren't up to tearing it out and having the cabinets replaced. We want to be sure that the cookware doesn't damage the oven in the process.

Has anyone done this? What did you use inside the oven to keep the cookware from banging into the sides and door while driving?

Thanks in advance

Have always used oven for pan storage, both in the sticks and bricks and the motor home.. Works great, No problmes in the S&B and to date none in the MH either.. IF worried start with one of those fleible silicon baking pans as the first pan on the shelf, they provide a decent non-skid and if they should slide,, Well a soft Bumper when it hits the wall.

Not that that has ever been an issue for me.

Or put the pots and pans in a cardboard box to protect the oven rack, walls and door.

We use wicker baskets for storage in most all cabinets. I spray the bottoms with a adhesive and place a felt like product on the bottoms. Felt keeps the surfaces from being scratched when they are pulled out for quick access to stored items. Should work in the oven.

We use ours, with a cast iron Dutch oven, as a propane-powered slow cooker.

Buy a roll of Non-skid shelf-liner. Cut into pieces, place between pans to protect them. Tape a piece on each oven wall to protect the porcelain surface.
I suggest shutting off the propane line to the oven for safety of your family, and from making a mess of things if the oven is accidentally turned on.

I cut some scrap veneer plywood to fit on the oven rack to give a firm base for what ever I store in there. If a GF wants to use the oven to bake, then she has to unload it first.
If I want to BBQ, I have to unload it, hoses, etc from the bay storage.
I use the microwave as a bread box and cookie bin.

We use our oven for cooking biscuits, muffins, cinnamon rolls and many other things. Any thing in the bread family we flip over when it's half done and it turns out as good as the home Viking stove.

We use the convection oven for baking and roasting making the propane oven unnecessary. Thanks for all of the great ideas, as usual very helpful.

I keep my toaster oven on the rack in the propane oven. It fits perfectly. I use a very thin rubbery place mat on the rack to protect it, but nothing on the sides and so far, no damage in 10 years of fulltiming.

In the broiler section below, I keep a 10" nonstick frying pan, also sitting on a rubbery place mat. When I slide the pan in, I first set in on a dish towel and pull the edges up over the sides of the pan to protect the oven walls, but I don't do wrap the handle.

I recently bought a 12" nonstick frying pan with a removable handle so it would fit in there, and am in the process of making a fleece bag for it. That will keep the sides of the pan from bumping into the oven walls, and I'll also be able to set the 10" pan in the 12" pan without having them scratch each other.

I'd like to replace the propane oven with a dishwasher, but then wouldn't have a place for the toaster oven and frying pans.
