I am working on a plan to redesign the kitchen in our '74 Sovereign
, and am reluctant to add an oven into a permanent cut-out in the kitchen. I feel like the 'tech' in trailers dates so fast, I'm not sure I want to dedicate built ins to anything that won't stand the test of time.
I've been looking at options for my cooking appliances in the Airstream, and was wondering if any of you have the Anova Precision Oven
or been tempted to buy one?
Anova is famous for their Sous Vide cookers, but has now come out with an oven with steam, that could potentially give me the combined functionality of an oven-sous vide machine-microwave. This is AC power only (which is fine for how we camp), but in my mind would give me a lot more functionality (and better results?) than using a convection microwave.
It appears that it would be incredible for making bread, since I would have full control over adding steam.
One potential down-side I can see, is the amount of space it takes -- it needs some circulation space around it so it could not be built-in under a cooktop. There also is the water reservoir that gets topped up, so I'm not sure if this should have a vent nearby, or if cracking a window would be sufficient to reduce any humidity?
I don't see the space requirement as a significant problem, as I would then have storage space where the oven would usually be. My current design has plenty of counter space to spare. We also have a propane cooktop and bbq that we bring for outdoor cooking.
Any other potential cons I have missed?
