We replaced the old range with a Seward Princess, which I'm loving.

So the question is, how many chefs out there actually use the oven? Has anyone else done this and rued the decision?

Thanks!
It's ALL personal preference. Do what suits your personal preference. Personally I could probably do without either a microwave or an oven. Living alone means meals for one. I cook for 4 to 6, then vacuum seal the extra portions. They can be warmed in a skillet, pan or just simmered in the bag.

Oddly I seem to get the bug to cook in an oven during warmer months - which is Stoopid in an Airstream. There are lots of really decent alternatives. Mine? A dutch oven and charcoal outside. You can also buy a portable propane "camp oven" which is great to use outside. IMHO any outside cooking keeps smells outside and that is great ... well not so much in bear country maybe.

I actually use the microwave in my new one more than I did the ovens in the older ones. And don't forget that the microwaves Airstream installs are also convection ovens. (bit of a pain... I read the instructions every time I want convection mode.)

I am excited about getting a range w oven and new euro vent soon, at the end of Mar. I will have the standard aluminum vent, 3 burner cook top and micro/convection (in excellent condition) for sale after we install.

Most of our camping is in the warmer months so the oven makes our Classic 25 too hot so we cook outside or on the stove if the weather doesn't allow outside cooking We carry a toaster oven to bake cookies etc. Maybe if we boondock in the future we'll change our minds about the oven but I'd rather have drawers or cabinets where the oven is located. Too bad our microwave that hangs below the cabinet above the sink can't be replaced with a convection/microwave.

Ah, there's the post I was looking for . How can you possibly go camping and not have cornbread for the bean soup and chili? It's a "must have".

Just imagine garlic toast in the microwave or local berry cobbler in the number oven! An oven is a deal breaker for sure!
Our classic came with one, installed one on the PanAm the first week.

I have used the convection microwave 2 times. Once I made toast just to learn how to use the convection microwave. Then we baked some cookies.

Or fresh bread... I know it's not everybody's idea of a good time, but baking and cooking is something we enjoy, and stuff tastes even better camping.
