We absolutely do use our oven and love it. Nothing cooks quite like it does in "the big house" so I do lots of monitoring...but so far so good! Temp's not too far off, and when camping, I try to keep it simple and easy so I'll probably never put the oven to a real challenge--like that gorgeous rib roast!

I renovated my 66 Caravel and took out the stove/oven. What a mistake! Too late now as the new cabinets are custom. It would have been nice to smell muffins baking.

My solution - Dutch Oven cooking. Still need to monitor the oven temp but I'm cooking outside. The plus with Dutch Oven cooking - You can feed an army cooking in one pot.

Thumbs up Oven use & smoke alarm

We were just in Death Valley last week, and our goal of making muffins was frustrated by the smoke alarm going off every time I tried to fire up the oven. At the time, I thought the siren was coming from the propane alarm, but today I discovered that the smoke alarm was the culprit. Good news is that the smoke alarm is easily detachable from its ceiling bracket and "stored" in a zip-lock baggie until oven use is over.

At the Florida Rally this past weekend we cooked twice in our new oven. Baked a loaf of bread for the Pot Luck dinner and made Monkey Bread for the Sunday morning breakfast. We also had to remove the smoke alarm - funny thing the PO never installed the battery and when I did my check out I put a new one in - now I know why it was left out.

I have that problem too. I try and remember to take mine down before cooking. At least the furnace doesn't set it off any more

Ya know, I'd have said that maybe a few years ago before I was there.

Got on the plane here in Chicago it was zero out. Landed in San Jose, it was 55 degrees and we all were in shorts, thinkin' Man is this great! Everyone thought we were nuts....then, after a few days, it seems chilly after it was in the high 60s.

We use our oven more frequently than we first thought we would. Baking, heating frozen snacks, cooking meat, it seems to work very well for us.

We've used it maybe twice in 3 years and we are retired and travel a lot. IMHO a combo convection/nuke makes better use of space.
