We got rid of the old oven and replaced with a new stainless 3 burner stove top

We use both the microwave and the oven. Also a great way to bake potatos... Nuke them in the microwave first, then finish them off in the oven. Keeps the TT cooler and uses less gas. Also like to nuke our popcorn!

Having gone without a oven, we wished we had one. So in my 1958 FC we just purchased a force10 marine Range/Oven. We are excited to have the option of a casserole or fresh muffins or cookies.

I have the convection /microwave; but for an oven, I go DUTCH. Easy to use and doesn't heat up the insides. Haven't used the stove in over 6 years. Most cooking done over the open fire or Coleman.

We have no oven and don't miss it at all. We use our microwave only rarely, to reheat or melt butter.

For baked-goods-needs, we use our Dutch Ovens.

The "oven thread" comes up often. Some people use their oven; some don't. Whether you do or not in and of itself doesn't tell much of a story. Neither does your favorite or most frequent thing to cook.

The story is in the why. From earlier threads there are some patterns that emerge.

What part of the country you camp in
The weather there
Whether you boondock
How long your trips are
Whether you eat in the trailer or eat out
The styles of food you like

The oven becomes important on cold, rainy trips where outside cooking is impractical. So if you camp in the desert maybe you won't want one as much as the guy who camps in Washington state or goes on duck hunting trips.

People who boondock and therefore cannot use a microwave or convection oven also place greater emphasis on a standard oven due to the relative unavailability of electricity. They also can replace a crock pot in this situation.

Over the last year I have used the oven for blueberry muffins, frozen pizza, and prime rib roast (with Yorkshires). I have broiled steaks when the weather simply will not permit the use of the outdoor grill. And I've made stews and potroasts, sometimes allowing them to cook while we are on the road.

But I recognize that there are many campers who never use the oven. Perhaps they make greater use of prepared foods than I do, buying their blueberry muffins in the store for example. Some have better weather and can rely on cooking outside. Others eat at restaurants more often. Still others build a camp cooking style around the cooktop. And a few use the convection oven.

Can we post this reply permanently on the portal? Great response.

I use it to store ziplock bags, foil, and cling wrap. Also a great place to store loaves of bread when traveling.

It does make good storage, but it's also fun on a cold morning to make muffins.

I noticed nobody has asked Hansel and Gretel what THEY think about ovens...

We use our oven frequently; I baked a blueberry peach cobbler for our Unit Summer Rally last Saturday. The oven was not baking properly, so I bought a thermometer to check the temperature and found that it is about 50 degrees off on the cool side, so I now set the dial to 400 degrees when I want to bake at 350. I also have a cushionaire sheet so that biscuits and cookies do not burn on the bottom.

Our last 2 RV's (Class A's) didn't have ovens and we never thought much about it nor thought that they would work very well. BUT -- every trip we've been on in the AS we've used the overn and found that it works very well and wish we had one in earlier RV's.

WE use the oven all the time. On the other hand we finally removed the microwave as we mostly used it for a bread box
