I used my oven again last night

Well I am getting into using my oven. This is only the second time I have tried to use it. One reason I am so excited about using it successfully is that many Airstream owners on this blog state that their ovens are practically useless. Yes they work but poorly at best. So here I am a newbi to this world of Airstream life and I have an oven that not only works but works amazingly well.
So I tryed my hand at baking chicken last night with one really big Valdada onion. I have never tried this before but, hey I like chicken and I like cooked onions so what the hell. Well I am proud to say that it was so good I couldn't believe I made it. So till next time Happy Mother's Day.

We normally bake outside in a Coleman camp oven, but this season in Alaska has been cold and wet so we decided to try our oven inside. I have been baking bread inside every week for the last month and it works like a champ. Now I think that I can get rid of my toaster oven and free up a little more space.

These ovens are great!

I can make a better Pineapple upsidedown cake in the trailer than I can in the house.

Mmmmm desert...
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

My oven has always worked like a champ -- the temperature regulation is better than my stick house oven. I am still going to replace it because the stovetop has four 5200 btu burners -- it can take weeks to boil water.

I'll miss that oven though...

We use our oven frequently. It works fine. Of course, we prefer to cook outside as much as possible, but the inside stove/oven and microwave are used as well.

I've had great luck with my oven when baking biscuits, rolls and italian dishes. I did add an oven thermometer to better judge the oven temperature. It works great.

Original oven worked great

The orginal oven in our 69 Overlander worked great. It had hardly ever been used and the temperature was correct. I just had to wipe out a little of the rust dust that was inside. We are renovating a 68 and I am insisting on getting a 3 burner stove with gas will work even if we are boondocking.

Nothing better then the smell of muffins in the oven on a chili morning.

broiled chops

steaks, pork chops and lamb chops (not too thick) braised on the bottom of the oven - both sides with a little butter and spices then baked at 275 until the meat is done - mmmmm

In my 89 Excella we use the oven a lot for various things; but it did not come with a broiler pan........what do you use? Do you crack the oven door and disconnect the fire alarm when broiling? Do you crank it up as it goes for the heat setting? How do you prevent splatter? If I do not have a dedicated broiler pan will aluminum foil lining inside of a shallow cake pan work?

I like using the oven. A microwave reminds me of home and when I am out in the Airstream I like to "slow" down and cook the old fashioned way. The oven works just fine and I have made many good meals out of it.

Love the oven! My favorite thing to do is make those frozen yeast dough cinnamon rolls. Let em rise in the counter all night and bake in the morning - no work. Yum.

The oven also makes great toast.
