In our previous trailer- never. In our current trailer with convection microwave- we use the microwave. We have never used the cooktop in either trailer. We cook on the grill, electric griddle, or crock pots.

We use it regularly, and wouldn't be without an oven. Comments for our current previous trailers

We use our oven all of the time. The last 2 outings included stone baked pizza...a really good reason to run the exhaust fan and make ALL of the camping neighbors really mad...

We never use the propane furnace, either.

My wife bakes cookies, pies, cakes, and chicken in our convection M/W oven when we have hook-ups.

This may not work in a 28. In our 25 there is a gaucho sofa between the dinette area and the TV. We removed one cushion and put in a small cabinet with 2 shelves. We screwed it to the gaucho base and it cannot be used for sleeping. On one shelf goes a printer and the other has a zapper. Be sure to have some sort of stop on the shelves to keep either item from bouncing out of the cabinet and onto the floor. We found a small/medium sized zapper that fit the cabinet. It depends how you use that sofa space in your trailer and whether you want to eliminate part of the sofa.

What type of MW/Convection oven do you have. We are currently looking for one to replace our stove. Thanks!

Couldn't imagine living without my gas oven/stove top. Add a baking stone and it can't be beat. As a former Chef I wouldn't cook with anything else. Gas, stone and cast iron are all I use.

Anything less would not be cooking. I like the way you think/cook

I am the cook in our house. First thing we'll do when we start the reno on our new/old trailer will be to rip out the MW.

Why such negative feelings about microwaves or convection ovens? My husband is a chef, and has no problem using a microwave occasionally, to thaw, to reheat, etc. There are times when it's convenient.

I guess it's a matter of preference, which I suppose it's what everyone is stating - their preference. But I can't help but feel there's a general feeling of negativity towards the microwave and convection oven.

Am I just imagining it?
