A tile in the bottom part of the oven makes a real difference - we use an old pizza stone, cut to size.

We do use the own. Baked oatmeal with berries for breakfast...

I was at target last night. In the outdoor section they of course carry gas grills. One brand called "stok™, has a section of the grill with a pizza stone. Around the corner is a section with all the Stok accessories.... one being the pizza stone. $12.99. it is visually the perfect size for our ovens!

My use of the convection microwave oven on this inaugural week long trip in virginia highland haven is slightly mixed. I've found, and another couple with a newer airstream apparently said the same, that the turntable in the oven is Teflon slick so placing any cooking dish in there for convection mode, if the trailer is off axis by a fraction, the cooking dish simply slides up against a wall and defeats the purpose of the convection. Does anyone know of use use a slip-stop material (sheet of silicone perhaps) to act as a sticky/friction surface for pots/pans?

Cooked a salmon steak at 275 at 15% time reduction and it came out perfect. Baked mac and cheese (Alton browns recipe tonight was spot on.)

I may consider replacing the cooktop with one that allows for a better high intensity burner or greater than ninety degrees of flame adjustment on the knobs.

We use our oven all the time. Have cooked roasts, chicken, Easter ham, breakfast casseroles, cinnamon buns and more. Seems like I don't use my oven at home as much as I do while camping.
Now to get a pizza stone to put in the bottom, I haven't had any problems but would like to try bread making and this is supposed to help the oven heat evenly.

Use the cooktop and oven all the time. Rarely use the microwave. Wish we had that place for storage. And our favorite is our O- Grill, outside.

We used ours, but good Lord did it heat up the whole trailer! I will say that it was nice to have, especially when Brooke cooked bacon. She got the idea from Helen Byam Schwamborn's cookbook, "Cooking on Wheels"....400° for 10 minutes and done.

A Lot

We use our oven a lot. In the summer, we just turn the stove vent on to vent the heat out and keep the AS cooler. We make Brownies, cakes, sweet rolls, roasts, made from scratch biscuits, and chocolate chip cookies.

I use it every time I camp although this last time I split the use with a new appliance I got for cooking with electric (when on ac landline) a flash oven- a newer type of oven that requires no preheating and cooks a bit faster than conventional oven. I believe it has a lot to do with what you eat and how you cook meat. Some people use a campfire nearly every evening to cook. I have since planned for cooking by energy type - electric, gas or wood/charcoal and purchased appropriately.

I'd like to remove the microwave and install a larger refrigerator, if it was possible. Hardly use the microwave since we bought our AS back in 2006.

You probably could. The 7 cubic foot unit is 24 deep by 23.5 wide by 52.58" high

Convection / Microwave makes me smile because DW ALWAYS has fresh cookies, biscuits, muffins, or cinnamon rolls ready almost before I have the EB set up! (Yes, she shares with our friends ... it is wonderful to have fresh chocolate chip cookies still with the chips melting - to offer to fellow campers. We often take a plate to those poor souls outside in the cold / tenters. I am a lucky guy!

With just the pilot going the inside temp is just right for making yoghurt or rising bread.

Oven works, never used it though...I use my oven to store the perishable items that don't really need refrigeration, things like corn and carrots, butter and such. That way I know where the perishables are and I don't forget about them in a cabinet when we get home. We leave our leftover non perishables and basic stock items in the trailer at all times as part of our earthquake emergency preparedness kit. Never had an issue with rodents, it is sealed up well.
