Hi, my eyes aren't getting any better, either, but at least I knew it wasn't a dish washer, because that's me.

Dishwasher challenged

Your enthusiasm for the oven club is humbling
Others might follow. Hopefully with a bit less bumbling.
Coven was the key.
But now that the secret is out;
underground is where we need to be.

Is that a whirlpool decal I just about can make out?

Those are real baked cookies actually. It's a Dometic fridge... maybe should call it a freezer though since it freezes the carrots...

I'm a newbie and our 'new' AS is still hooked to our pickup since we arrived home at 1am...and up at 5am with the puppy. In our last AS ('73 Land Yacht), I baked every trip we took. Can't wait to take our new 'baby' out and baking will be part of her life...ahhh...the aromas.

I rarely fry anything inside, hate the mess, so we have a coleman that we keep on the tailgate of the pick up. I kinda like cooking outside too, makes me feel young. LOL! (The days of tents and young children and Oregon rain).

We were camping this week, I had fresh baked oatmeal cookies - twice. Yum! We use the oven much more than we did the Microwave in our last trailer. Ideally I would have both, but the 21' is a little small.

Believe it or not, that little old stovetop Ovenette works well. As for the skillet, nothing but an old Griswold cast iron will do.
Well Sugarfoot...I was so inspired by your ovenette picture, I pick one up on Ebay. Paid $12.50 for it. Can't wait to try it on my next adventure!

Don't recall if I posted this, but yes, we do use ours. Norby even temp tested it and found it's pretty much dead on.

we don't have one and don't even use the one at home very much. the microvave/convection works fine. the convection learning curve is a bit like using the nuker for the first time.

Sugarfoot & Slowolf, tell me all about the Ovenette. It seems like I've heard that name before but ... ???? I dunno where - maybe much earlier in the oven thread perhaps?

Slo, you got a steal! I've seen them go for upwards of $75 on eBay for a complete set.

Sue, like Silvertwinkie says, the Ovenette is pretty accurate temp-wise. Don't know if this is fact, but I've heard these where available in the Airstream store back in Wally Byum's day. The base is placed on the burner, gas stoves only. Titrate the flame to get the temp where you want, high at first to preheat about 50 degrees greater than your baking temp. Put your biscuit pan on the wire rack under the lid, watch the thermometer and adjust accordingly. It preheats way faster than my Princess Oven, uses less LPG overall, and you have "oven" fresh goodies. There is a bit of a learning curve, but its a handy little gadget for low volume baking and does more than just biscuits.

Rivet Ovenette

Thanks for the info. Don't want to be a pest but what else can/do you bake in the Ovenette and do I need one?
Also, I think Silvertwinkie was refering to the regular oven .... after the Midwest Rally 2006 the Twinks, Norbie, Ike & I all went to northern IL. on a couple extra days and there was some oven talk. Norbie made the best pizza from scratch we've ever had! And Mrs. Silvertrinkie makes the most amazing mac & cheese!

Oh, guess I had ovenette on the brain.

But to answer your question Sue, you can use the ovenette to bake just about anything you bake in the Airstream oven so long as it fits under the lid on the wire rack. You don't NEED one, it's just another option. I still use my Airstream oven at rallies, large gatherings, etc. I use my ovenette when I want to save time, don't want to heat up the galley as much or want to conserve propane. I've made brownies, 10" frozen pizzas, biscuits, etc. I haven't tried casseroles or pies yet but wouldn't hesitate. I don't camp with a microwave so the ovenette fills the gap . . . sorta kinda.

Becki and I both like to cook and I really get into vintage kitchen gadgets. I have an old penguin thermos type food transporter...good for hot or cold. I also have several (OK, I got carried away on e-bay) 1930's era Waring "blendors" that still work great...makes the best frozen adult beverages and, with the beehive bases, look great with the Airstream. I really want an old Sunbeam stand mixer, but Becki says we don't have room in the cupboards or on the counters. These ovenettes look like they would be way cool to have. I'll have to keep an eye out for one on e-bay just to have as a conversation piece at home.

Now that I think of it, one would make a great outdoor oven to use with the side burners next to the grill...hey, I may have to go over to e-bay right now. Oh, wait, I'm at work and won't have time. Well, there's always later!

Flitzwhopper, I did a search on the word Broil and your post came up. To my wife and I broil means the heat is above the item being cooked. In our 07 AS we cannot figure for the life of us any change when we move our oven control from a regular temperature setting over to the broil setting. In both positions the heat is "below" the item being cooked.

I asked the tech at the AS dealership and he just looked at me like I was crazy. Am I??
