Replacement Pans For Ovenette

Just thought I would post a list of replacement pans for the West Bend Ovenette since this is the time of year they start popping up on Ebay.

I have seen the Ovenette without pans go for as little as $15.

Here is a list of pans that will work just as well as the original pans:

*-Meat Pan - This has always been the most difficult pan to replace, but not any more. It is actually better than the original since it is annodized and will not react with acidic foods such as wine, pineappple , etc. I purchased one and use it instead of the original since I like to use wine in my pot roast. Also makes a nifty pineapple upsidedown cake:

Fat Daddios Annodized Aluminum Contour Cake Pan with Rounded Bottom in the 8 in. X 3 in. size

*-Cake Pan - any 8in. X 2 in round cake pan without handles such as:

Wilton 8 in. X 2 in cake pan

*-Muffin Cups- the Ovenette originally came with 7 aluminum muffin cups. the Witon silicone are lightweight and very easy to clean:

Wilton Easy Flex Silicone Baking Cups, 3 inch , 12 count set

Hope anyone lookking for replacement pans finds this info helpful.

Happy trails,
'shaker

Thanks for the information, I will keep an eye out for an Ovenette. Sounds great. None on Ebay now.

Guardian Service aluminum pans

Some of you may be familiar with the name, but Guardian Ware / Service pans, originally manufactured and sold back in the 40's, 50's, 60's(?dates), mostly in the midwest and east coast, were actually meant to be used as stovetop oven type use. They are a bit on the heavier side, but the are made of cast aluminum . They are very durable and are great for making pot roast & a variety of other items. They make all sorts of sizes. I own many, including the XXL turkey roaster. You'd have to find a users manual & or recipe book from them to figure out how to use for this purpose on the stovetop. I have one around somewhere. I'm sure you could find info through a internet search too. Many are for sale on Ebay too (pans & books).

Happy cooking!

Mary

Looks a lot like the Cobb Grill that uses BBQ Briquets instead of sitting on a stove top...The Cobb is used outside so you don't have to fill the trailer with cooking fumes, vapors, etc...

The Portable Grill Store - The ultimate portable Grill site and Barbecue for The Cobb Premier, Volcano and Outdoorchef City Grill camping, tailgating, RVs and boating grills.

We really like our Cobb - only uses a few briquets, and is fine for smaller meals for two or so - you can cook a whole chicken or tri tip roast...yummy!

You did say Boondocking, right?

This box oven has been in use for family camping since August 1994, that's right I put the date on it when I made it. If you can keep it dry, well we are 16 years and still cooking.

It can be made from any stout cardboard box, I like aluminum rods for the rack system, a pie plate to hold the charcoal, 3 small rocks to elevate the pie plate. The box has a 2"X3" hole in the bottom and a series of holes across the top to let air flow out. You need airflow or the coals will go out.

I make liner walls to fit and wrap them with the heaviest AL foil you can find, duct tape the foil to the back. The 3 side panels hold up the top, the front flap folds down and with a little practice this Box Oven will go to 375 degrees w/o any problems.

I usually start some charcoal while I'm waiting for the coffee to perk, the coals go in white, not flaming, you can add coals if they are white and keep the oven going.

We have cooked cookies, cinamon rolls, pizza, full size cakes, coffee cakes and, well it's just limited to your creatitivity and cooking needs. You should see the stares this gets in the AM from early AM walkers as they smell the goods, but did not see a trailer to go with the smells. We are tent campers that just bought a AS. Cast Iron, dutch ovens, perked coffee and hardwood fires, that's my style.

I first saw this on a BSA leaders training camp and I think it must have caught my eye, I have made them and given them away as gifts.

This was from a quick weekend getaway in Calhoun Falls SP in SC. I didn't have time for our bigger setup this was a bit time crunched. My big coffee boiler holds 11 qts. thats right quarts. Cast iron a plenty, biggest is a 20" Lodge 2 handed skillet.

A thermometer in the box really helps master the temp and impress the non-believers.

Dutch apple pie is darn fine in one of these.

I think there is a thread for the cobb grill.

If I did'nt post on my eperience with my Cobb -I agree that the cobb grill is terrific for its intended purpose, I love mine.

Charcoal flavored desserts are not my favorite though.

Boondocking seems to be alot like FTing- Different meanings to different people.

I am sure others would appreciate a thread for homemade ovens, but I chose to start a thread on the ovenette for the following reasons:

-I am using something manufactured about 50 yrs ago instead of it going into a landfill .

-It can be used on my conventional stovetop. Also works well on my propane cook stove (i.e.-when burn bans are in effect) so I can bake outdoors. Prevents the heat build up in my unit during warmer weather .

-It can be used over a wood or charcoal open fire without imparting a smoked flavor to what I am cooking. As much as I love charcoal and wood flavor to meats etc. there are many baked items where these flavors are not a welcome addition to the dish.

-I don't have to guess at the temp. I just glance at the thermometer on top.

-Last but not least, it is not as heavy as a Dutch oven although many streamers enjoy this method it is not something I choose to do. I think there is a thread for Dutch oven cooking for those interested.

The Ovenette is another great addition for my unit that meets the criteria for my multi-functional, lightweight, compact approach to equipping my unit .

I am going to be a real donkey here...
Don't you people realize that there is an oven in every Airstream? Is there something wrong with using your oven? The reason there is a fan above the stove is to get the heat and cooking fumes out of the trailer. Since when was cooking fumes bad? Please do not invite me over if your cooking smells bad. Half of the sense of taste relies on smell so it might be a sign...
What happened to using the trailer as it was designed?

This thread has driven the demand of Ovenettes up for sure. Ebay should be very happy about that. Now if I can just find one of these things at a yard sale I will be able to cash in on the Ovenette craze of 2010. Where would I store it? I could put it in my oven...
