DEFINITELY use the oven, bakes better than the one at the house and is more true to temperature. And the smell of home baking wafts out of the vent and through the campground making everyone envious. Not bad for a 46 year old appliance.

Hi, We have an oven, with stove top, and a microwave. We as of now have not used the oven, but did light it just for a test. We use the stove top and microwave a lot. We precook at home in our oven and reheat in the trailer's microwave. Frozen, boneless, turkey precooked at home and a few jars of turkey gravy is soooo good. This was part of our first Thanksgiving dinner in our trailer. Use the oven as a bread box! I like that idea. But now that my wife is retired, she promissed me that she will become "Suzie Homemaker" and that will include useing the oven. Of coarse now I still have to retire to benfit from this. We also have, in the trailer, a small electric coffee maker and a toaster that looks like an Airstream, sort of, and a stove top coffee pot for use when boon docking, not used yet.
For microwave pizza reheated, not cooking, I put it on a plate with a little dab of butter covered with plastic wrap, Uuuuuummmmm sooooooo good.

Bob

Absolutely use the oven. Nothing like the smell of fresh baked goods and eating cornbread while it's still warm right out of the oven. Smelling pumpkin pie cooking in an Airstream is just awesome

Oven

I use it enough to have paid a small fortune to replace the temperature control. In warm weather, I typically cook outside using the gas grill. In chilly weather, the heat from the oven when cooking cornbread or biscuits is quite pleasant.

Hey, that's a way to heat the trailer with the oven without people saying you are crazy! I like it!

Yummm

We are spending Christmas in the AS. I'm going to cook a standing rib roast in the oven. Yumm. I can imagine the aroma wafting through the AS already. When it's done, I'll bake some fresh biscuits to a golden brown to go with it. I feel like Pavlov's dog. The microwave just doesn't cut it.

Steve and Jan: If we didn't already have a bunch of family scheduled to show up here on Christmas, we'd be drooling outside your door at Lake San Antonio. You paint a very tasty picture. Enjoy!

Make some cardboard cutouts of the two of you, leave at home and come join us! You won't have to drool outside, you can come in and drool!

Each time we eat PIZZAs; Always a great moment , for the odor and the ramp fire view. Great feeling to be independant in the trailer when you can cook with good tools.

What we need is some data....

Just when I thought there was no clear answer to the question...
There is science. (be patience, it is a lot of data)

http://www.dfrc.wisc.edu/NIRS2003pdf...rying.ver2.pdf

Is haylage as good as cornbread?

I feel a poem coming on... or is it a magrine?

Standby.

Poem: Microwaved for 10 min. Half-baked for 30.

There has come a day
and you are not sure of the way
What ever did folks do
when there was only one way?

There has come a day
when some might say
you don’t need one of those
you need one of these.
How lucky folks were
when there was only one way.

There will come a day
when everyone will pay
for someone to tell or show them the way.
Folks were so lucky
when there was much less to do and say.

There will come a day
when we will all want to play
Pray, folks won’t divide up in Littles and Bigs.
We could have the best of both worlds
and find life is good in our shiny rigs.

There will come a day
when we stand back and say,
all that time spent wondering yeah or nay
we should have been searching for
more room to play.

There will come a day
when we drop down and say,
we can have Both and use them at will
To nuke or broil, to reheat or bake
folks will all smile and and join hands at a rally

because the food will be good
and the friendships will last.

em.

I'll add a little to robertsunrus on the stove top coffee pot .We use vintage appliances when we use the airstream ,GE chrome toaster and a waffle iron
from the rexall drug store back in the 60s I think .remember when the drug stores had their own line of products and stuff ,they had something for everyone it seemed .We use a werever stove top perculator coffee pot
and I will say it makes a great cup of coffee ,really tastes good .Agree
also with sugarfoot on the oven ,very true to temperature ,seems to do better than the house oven .

Biscuits...gotta have biscuits

or sometimes crescent rolls...brown and serve rolls too! But biscuits in the morning are critcal too camping. I'm in charge of breakfast in our camping group (usually 8-10)..most mornings its Biscuits, Eggs, Pancakes, Bacon and Grits. it seems everything but the grits go a biscuit if your under the age of 12..that way you can run, jump, ride a bike and eat.


Oh yeah...someone added a microwave under counter in my 53 Spartan...Tam says "its gotta go"
