Using the Convection Oven

Well, I did a test the other day of using the convection oven feature of the microwave to bake some cinnamon rolls.

It worked fine once I realized that you had to set the clock in order to get the oven to run for longer than about 3 minutes.

I do have a question for you more seasoned veterans of the convec/micro combo.

When using convection or grilling, do you still leave the rotating glass tray in place? The instruction manual seems to indicate you do, however the tray is embossed with the words "microwave only" which would suggest you don't. Anybody know the answer?

We have always left ours in, no problems. We have the same micro/convection oven in both our Airstream, and our stick-&-mortar house. No issues with either one.

The glass turntable should be left in when using the convection mode, and the metal tray should rest on it. That way the metal tray rotates while you're cooking the food.

The "for microwave use only" label is a "cover your butt" disclaimer by the manufacturer. If you use the turntable as a serving tray and it breaks in your hand, or if you use it as a baking sheet to make cookies in a regular oven and your burn yourself picking it up, you won't be able to successfully sue the maker because they clearly told you, "Don't."

I was just wondering the same thing. I have been taking mine out but it is good to know you can leave it in

We tried ours on convection & it got very hot in & around the oven (to the point that the door wouldn't close when we opened to check on the progress), but the center of the casserole was still cold & we had to wait for the oven to cool off so we could close the door & finish on micro.

Total CYA label. Though someone could probably still successfully sue if it's not large enough to grab your attention or too vague. The fact it's on there means someone probably sued before lol

We make toast by using the "grill" setting, and turning the wire rack over so that the bread is closer to the element in the top of the oven. Cuisinart micro/convection oven.

We recently purchased a 98 AS that had the microwave/convection oven replaced with a Dometic brand. I had the same issue with it shutting off after 3-4 minutes. I believe the clock was set. It also got VERY hot...I was very concerned it would overheat and die. There was no help in the manual and I couldn't see a tech support number. Very frustrating!

While traveling one time a fellow Airstream owner suggested that when not in use, the convection/microwave's power should be cut off at the fuse box since if the display on the unit were ever to go bad there is no repair available other than to replace the whole unit??

The only time the display is lit on the microwave in the AI is when the generator is running or hooked up to shore power which for me is only when I need the A/C or the microwave.

Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

PM me for sale info on my 2011. SOLD!
