convection microwave oven

I'm thinking of purchasing a combination portable microwave/convection
oven and wondering if any of you have done the same? Recomendations?

The Sharp R-820BK that came built-in in our rig is a convection microwave that also grills on an elevated rack. We have grilled fish on it and it works really well. It's available as a counter-top.

I bought one of the Sharp R-820BK ones after seeing the one that fr8shaker has. Great unit. There is a build in kit available from sharp but I'm not that impressed with it, especially for the price. I am going to build one out of perfed metal and angle and paint it black. Not only will it look better, the ventilation will be just as good.

You can get them at Amazon or Walmart.com for the same price, $279.89. Both prices includes free shipping—both are coming from CSN Stores.

Bilo Hak-sorry you're having problems with your micrwave. Good Luck on finding a solution.

I also have the same model in our trailer, and so far it's worked great. I've used it to bake, roast, toast and microwave. No problems yet!

My normal repair method (a good smack on the side) only worked until we got to our destination. This is perfectly reasonable since the ability of something to function correctly is in inverse proportion to the distance from a shop. The second fix was to take the thing out, remove the cover and look inside. I discovered a loose wire, reattached it and voila, the thing worked. But that only lasted a year. The next time, after going through the process, ( hit, take apart, look,) I discovered a blackened bit that I removed and took to a parts store. They sold me a new bit ($11.00) that I put in and voila, the thing worked. But that only lasted a year. The next time, after going through the process, I took the whole thing in to a repair guy. He told me that he could fix it for $300 which was a lot cheaper than a new one but it wouldn't last long. Cheaper than a new one, fix it. It lasted about a year. Sick to death of the process, I bought a new one, and have been a happy camper ever since. Jim

I ordered the Sharp Convection/Microwave option in my trailer. I hated it. I am technologically savvy, but this particular model is (IMHO) overly complex. Just came from a rally with a bunch of other A/S folks and we had many laughs about trying to use the Sharp. I eventually sold mine, put in a regular gas oven and also installed a Cuisinart Convection/Microwave underneath it. To my mind, the Cuisinart is FAR superior to the Sharp. It is also stainless steel rather than ugly dark brown plastic.

We bought a counter top unit for our FC20 and that convinced us to get the factory unit in our EB25.

I recently went a little crazy and built-in a 27" GE Advantium "speed cook" oven....

PSB9100SFSS | GE Profile™ Series Advantium® 120V - 27 in. Wall Oven | GE Appliances

This works as a regular oven, "speed cook" oven using microwave/halogen and other heating elements, and normal or convection microwave. I also removed my normal oven/stove combo and just put in a stovetop.

The question is what size do you need for the space? I've owned home units- Sharp, Panasonic, Cuisinart (current micro), Tappan, Haier, Emerson. My favorite microwave brand of these is Panasonic- hands down. They hold the patent on inverter technology. It cooks with a leveled constant heat versus on/off cycling and cooks more evenly.

The install space will determine size and limit the brand too. It did for me. I have a Haier in my AS. Don't like it much but nothing else seems to fit.

Our trailer came with a convection microwave. I have used it twice. Once, I made some toast to learn how to use the convection microwave. Then, we baked peanut butter cookies.

Another good point. When it comes to cooking, every time I have camped I have used the LP gas oven and stove. I bought one of those inverter cooktops and used it two meals a day along with the oven on my last four day trip- excellent gadget. It all depends on cooking habits. If you are not an oven person then you may not need the convection part. I wish that I could fit one in my camper. That would add electric to my oven option.

We have the built-in micro/convection and really love it. I've used it for roasting and baking quite a bit along with the micro. No complains here, plus, without the oven, we have a lot more drawer space.
