I have the convection Micro and would like to have the gas oven as well. I cannot bake without electricity. My honda EU2000 will run the microwave. One hearty little sucker. It survived being ejected from the truck. Checked it out this evening. It still works.

Gas for me. It's nice to be able to broil some parmesan over tomatoes, or heat some frozen appetizers without the need for big power.
We don't use a microwave at home, so we do not miss it while underway.
Last year, while on a trip with my brother, we used the convection oven in his rental rv to bake his birthday cake, and it seems to have worked great, just took some serious figuring out of the digital interface. The oven manual seemed bigger than the one for the entire coach.

The container the mix comes in is perfect for the trailer's pantry (resealable, tall and narrow). Looks like you Texans know your biscuits! Thanks for the tip.
Simple & easy as can be! FYI, I'd advised Steph that we just about won't have biscuits any more without slathering them with either lavender or chestnut honey (European sources only -- but unique!). The websites for Pioneer are https://www.chguenther.com/store/ and http://www.pioneermills.com/. The Buttermilk Biscuit & Baking Mix is my favorite.

Steph, is there any life left in pulling for the Tigers? 2-3 in the seventh ... unhh!

We have the microwave/convection oven, which is great if you're hooked to power. But it would be nice to be able to bake while boondocking. Has anyone tried one of these Coleman folding ovens on their stove top?

We have a Coleman oven that we used to use with our Coleman stove and it worked well. It basically works on any gas burner stove but we have never tried it inside a trailer. I believe that it would give off a great deal of heat.

When we bought our 30' Safari, we chose to go with the oven as we did some boondocking at the time. However, we ended up with a microwave as an additional unit which took up space that we could have used otherwise. When we ordered our current unit, we opted for the combo unit as we realized that 1) we used a microwave more than we used the oven, 2) we really didn't want the heat from the oven in the unit, and 3) we recovered some space.

Its a personal choice based on the type of camping and cooking the you do.

All the posts here mirror our experience/thoughts ... we bought our '06 Safari with the gas oven/no microwave. We've learned now, though, that the oven is difficult to light and my wife won't bother to try any more; the oven makes the trailer too hot in our Florida heat; and the places we go all have electric so we could operate a microwave and would use it more than the oven. So, our next unit (already craving a unit with a slide out) will have the convection/microwave. We mostly grill outside anyway. Just depends on your personal cooking needs.

Here's a thought that might save counter space: with our convential gas oven, I'm thinking that if I find a microwave I like, maybe it'll live inside the oven itself (unless we're baking, of course!).

Might solve the counter space issue, should travel ok, though we've have a cording dangling out the oven door when microwaving...

Cheers,
-jd.

Great idea, we barely use the oven and currently keep the pots & pans (stackables) in there, but a small microwave would ride just fine in that spot.

We purchased both our AS's with ovens off the lots so no choices there, but
would still opt for ovens as no need for power and honda gen can power a small microwave. The oven is great for storage!

Okay, you got my curiosity with this one. Guess I don't get around -- at least when it comes to chain restaurants! Don't know what I think about Sprite in a recipe... I do know when the biscuit box calls for milk that water is a nearly equivalent replacement.

But found on http://www.realcajunrecipes.com is:
Popeye's Biscuit Twin

Makes: 12 biscuits
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Ready In: 45 minutes
This easy quick recipe has a mouth watering taste very similar to the famous Popeye's (fried chicken chain) biscuits.

Ingredients
2 cups Pioneer Buttermilk Biscuit Mix
1/2 cup lite sour cream
1/2 cup cold Sprite
2 Tbsp Butter

Directions: Melt butter in a bowl. Mix all ingredients together and form biscuit. Mixture will be sticky. Do not overwork; this is a drop biscuit. Coat the biscuit on both side with some melted butter and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.

We searched high and low for a 30' bunk with a micro-convection oven. That was the only way to get a microwave in this plan because the galley is on the street side and the micro door wouldn't open right. My wife's decision. She doesn't do biscuits unless they pop out of a can when you whack it up side the counter! Well, she does do the frozen kind you can get at Stupid Wal-Marts, but that's beside the point.

Anyway, she thinks she'll like the convection micro once she gets used to it. We don't plan on much boondocking and I don't expect she'll bake too many cakes or loaves of bread while we camp. Mostly, she wanted the ability to nuke popcorn to go with DVD's with the kids after the camp fire goes out.

I'm with you...except the new unit. I'm happy with ours until our kids are no longer camping with us.

... funny - and my wife is like yours as far as the canned biscuits!

As for the new unit, we really like ours a lot, don't get me wrong, but wish we'd gone a little longer and a little wider (slide out) - but that would've been too heavy for my truck. Now that I'm a year wiser, I'd also like one with permanent beds (front queen/rear bunks) so we don't have to mess with the dinette every night.

We went with the convection/micro but still haven't used it much, mostly just for reheating, warming up burrito shells, popcorn, etc. But we wouldn't have used an oven much either. We like cooking outdoors whenever we can to keep the cooking odors out of the living space.

Tin sista, now that you've given the biscuit mix the thumbs up I think I'm gonn have to try it. Anybody know if it's sold in stores in the Northeast, or is mail order the only way to go?

-Jamie

I have this thing about fresh bread....

I love the oven in mine. I used a bread machine for a long time. Mine died and when I was looking at new ones, it occured to me that all they do is mix and heat. I thought ( yes I did), hey I can mix and with the oven I can heat. No electric involved. Perfect for boondocking. So instead of a new bread maker I bought a couple baking pans and a larger mixing bowl. I have taken to making my bread and biscuts from scratch when I can. I havent had a microwave in years so I dont miss it. So whats the story on this pioneer biscut mix? Someone going to send me some so I can try it ?
