microwave compared to a convection microwave.

We are going to take out our stove.. as the oven no longer works.. and going to do the counter and cooktop area.. going to a 2 burner cooktop and haven't decided on the brand of microwave or the type.. leaning towards a Samsung Roast and bake.. Has anyone tried these units and are you happy with the changeovers ..?? Thanks..

If I remember right my XC has a magic chef range/oven and I also think the microwave is Magic chef but it also might be Dometic...I know it's one or the other and either way I've had both in previous RV's. Whatever you decide to put in, I highly recommend going with one specifically made for RV's. Appliances made for home eventually develop issues when put in RV's that, well, move. Plus the power draw is much less (usually) on RV specific appliances than residential (for the most part).
I say this with one exception, if you're a full timer in a permanent spot...then I guess residential's that seems to be the trend in a lot of FWs made for full timing. Though I've seen a lot of massive LG refrigerators in a lot of Class A DP's I've been looking at and I've yet to find out if those are residential sized made for RVs...or if RV manufacturers are literally putting residential appliances in....if that's the case screw that I'd ask for a Dometic anyday...but my RV moves, a lot.

Sharp! my convection microwave is a Sharp (I just read another thread and it jogged my memory) but my range/oven is a Magic Chef...I'm replacing it with an induction cooktop and dishwasher.

I really think induction is the way to go. Efficient and no extra heat inside like gas or electric heating elements. Let us know what you find.

We have the Dometic convection microwave and love it. It is specifically made for RVs. Our Safari originally came with a Sharp which lasted 6 years.

I just wish we had a turntable option in our microwave/convection. I'd like to be able to disable the turn table when using the convection mode. That would allow use of bigger rectangular pans. The convection process doesn't need a turntable to cook evenly likes the microwave process does.

My LY diesel pusher came new with a Sharp Convection/microwave. It also has a 3 burner gas range but no oven. That space is used for kitchen drawers.

After I bought the rig last April, the Sharp did not function. Everyone that looked at it said its best to replace with a new unit. Found a nice GE convection/micro for about $450 at Home Depot. Installed it myself and really enjoy how it operates. Because its dual purpose, I would certainly recommend it to anyone doing a conversion and eliminate the old style oven. Use that space for storage or something else.
