What is life without an oven?
I have two propane ovens and I take one with me everywhere I go. I use a 1961 Safari to carry one of them and a 1949 Boles Aero to carry the other.

When we ordered our 34 footer we specifically ordered it without the oven. The convection]micro combination unit does everything we want. Having the extra storage space is really nice, when we order another new one in a year or two it will be set up the same way.

We use our oven every trip, it is tradition to bake fresh cinnamon rolls at least once during the trip

I wouldn't know what to do without the oven when I'm at the deer lease.

Two minutes into a frozen pizza right now. After years in the Trade Wind where the oven didn't work, I'm thrilled to have one that works well.

when buying our AS it did not have an oven...just the confection. I had them put one in...... great when boondocking or those cold stops in the middle of no where on route to sunny weather from the cold north.

Be aware of CO poisoning

Just a quick reminder that ovens should never be used to heat the trailer. Ovens are a major culprit in carbon monoxide production; especially when starting. The reason is the oven flame touches the heat spreader which results in incomplete combustion. This is one good reason you should never cook with the flames touching or coming up the sides of a pan .

As we're getting into the colder time of the year and more likely to be camping inside with the windows closed and running the gas heat consider investing in a good carbon monoxide detector. Inexpensive battery powered detectors that give a visual readout from 10-999 PPM are cheap now and very reliable (~$50). For a little over $130 you can get a low level monitor (CO Experts) that will sound a audible alarm at ~30 PPM. Haven't tested one yet but the DuPont 828 appears to be an import version of the FireAngel 828 build to european spec EN 50291:2001 which is far more stringent than the UL 2034 spec or CSA 6.19 (a little better) which don't require an audible warning until it's a 911 call .

Fresh Apple Pie

Several years ago my wife and I were tent camping while waiting to close on a house. We ran accross some friends from Texas who were visiting family in Colorado Springs and staying in the same campground in their Airstream. One afternoon Mrs. Tilley broght down an Apple pie that she had baked in her oven.

After that apple pie, there was never any question for me......and my wife makes a fresh pie every time we take our Airstream out!

I tried baking cookies in my magic chef oven tonight but they got burned on the bottom and not cooked on top. These were not real cookies...just the frozen kind from the store. What am I doing wrong? Do I need one of those stones?

I would try putting a pizza stone in the oven to help distribute the heat more evenly. I put mine on the metal shelf above the burner. Also, pick up an oven thermometer so you can confirm the temperature is where it is supposed to be.

I found that a shiny metal sheet placed below the item being baked prevents burning about as well as a stone and is a lot smaller and lighter to store. I found the sheet I use in a kitchen department.

Whether it needs it or not

Way back in Post #137, I posted a picture of my dirty oven which was later quoted in another post to help explain how the broiler works in a gas oven.

In Post #172, another member took the opportunity to show off his clean oven, and it made me feel kinda bad. But I was able to shake it off without doing anything.

The mothership recently posted a lot of documentation on their website dealing specifically with vintage Airstreams. Would you believe the cleaning interval on the old Magic Chef ovens is every seven years?

While the consequences didn't appear to be as severe as those associated with neglecting running gear balance, I was moved enough that the oven was warmed up last night, and then sprayed with E-Z Off. This morning, in 18 degree weather, most of a seven year buildup was removed. Although the E-Z Off had done its job, wiping the grime out was kind of tough because the rinse water kept freezing to the oven walls.

But it was worth it - I'm now good for another seven years.

Tom

Congrats on the Cleanup ...

but my experience is that as soon as I expend lots of elbow grease on something like this (especiallly in very cold or very hot weather), it immediately fails in some non-repairable way and requires replacement. I think it's some corollary to Murpy's law that it be so.
