Oven

So I'm curios, does anyone really cook in the oven in your motorhome? Besides cookies and the occasional Stouffer's take and bake do you make real meals?

My wife loves to cook and bake, to which my waistline can testify. She was sorely disappointed when our MH only had a convection microwave (electric oven). When we had our 5er she was baking very often. She bakes a meatloaf that's out of this world.
The "secret" to using an RV gas oven is to place something inside to even out the heat, like a pizza stone or clay tiles. This is because the oven is so small it cools and heats rapidly. Just opening the door to peek will reduce the temperature drastically.
It's been 18 months now, and she's mastered baking in the convection-er, electric oven.

I don't bake very often, never in the RV long enough! but I was pleased that our new "off the lot" RV had the oven in it after seeing so many that didn't. I like a baked meal occasionally, so this was a plus for me.

I also wonder why so many don't have them, especially with how expensive these rigs are! I suppose needing two more storage drawers is important to some folks. I'm sort of a minimalist with the exception of baking cookies on a rainy day

We bake just about anything we would bake at home, but in the coach we use the big GE Profile convection/micro. Does a fine job.

It took DW all of a couple meals to master the convection. She likes it so much she started using the convection feature on the S&B oven that we have had for 10 years.

I can not tell the difference. She is a wonderful baker.

DW uses the MW/convection in the coach with no problems.

Have used the real oven in our Outlaw for everything from cookies to broiled steaks.
Propane is efficient and uses no power when off-grid or when there is no desire to grill outside.

Safe travels

Thanks folks- sorry for not being clear, I meant the traditional oven that is propane sourced.

My wife constantly makes meals in our oven. We just purchased a new MH and she insisted it be ordered with a gas oven....and a convection microwave. Yup, we have both in our new Allegro. Looking forward to some great meals when we are on vacation.

You can do just about anything in a convection oven that you can do in a propane oven, except the convection oven will probably do it faster.

I have roasted a roast or 2, And on Wed next I will bake a cheesecake, that is in the Propane oven.. I also have an electric, kind of a very large toaster oven (Does texas toast real good) that I use for everyday cooking, but I'm solo so I tend to bake small. But cheesecake takes the larger oven.

Many of us (myself included) have put a pizza stone or an unglazed clay tile in the bottom to even out the heat distrubition, this really helps.

Oh and Cookies (Which I did last Thu) go in the small electric oven.

(On Thursdays, where I am parked, they have a pot luck,, This coming one (Cheesecake) is the last of them however,, I am very sad to say.. I enjoied those and seriously like some of the people there.

We use the oven to store bread. I've owned 4 RV's and have never used the ovens. Can't remember ever using the stove top either. Microwave and grills, toaster.
