Outdoor ovens
 
Anyone have experience with the Camp Chef portable propane oven. It has a two burner cook top also. One came with my motorhome, unused and I am unfamiliar with them. https://www.amazon.com/Camp-Chef-Out.../dp/B07ZQNF2ZJ sorry, this is in the wrong category.

I'm interested in seeing if anyone responds to your question. My wife wants me to replace the dishwasher in our coach with an oven. I hadn't thought of a unit like this but maybe I should show it to her. lol.

We have one we bought a few years ago, and find it to be adequate. The 2-burner cooktop is nice - the burners are large and have good control. The oven is OK, but there is no thermostatic temperature control, you have to adjust the flame manually. It can reach a temperature of about 400F, but not much higher. Since most baking is done at around 350, it's not a huge issue. As with all small ovens, even the built-in RV ovens, the heat is a little uneven, so you have to move things around during cooking, and each time you open the door you lose a lot of your heat. For the price it's OK but it certainly doesn't take the place of the Thermador I have at home.

We bought one from Costco about 10 years ago. It was easy to use and worked well for what we used it for but found it was a major pain in the a#$ moving it around and storing in the motorhome. It was put into the garage after two camping seasons and forgotten about..... until now. I really should try to find another home for it as we'll never use it again.

That's what I was concerned with. I already haul around a 22" Blackstone and a Weber Q, both with stands. They take up a lot of space and I'm not sure adding a portable oven would be worth the extra aggravation.

Does the oven have to be outside? A number of people use regular toaster ovens that sit on a counter. If I want to bake outside, I use a Dutch oven, but that does require charcoal.
