Tommyglen, Thanks for the information, but unfortunately the rotation cannot be stopped in my convection microwave (Contoure RV-200S-Con). If it could, then my toaster oven pans which I LOVE, could be used. I guess I’m going to have to adapt to using only 8” round and square pans. Tell your wife I said thank you for the input. Seanette

Alan, yep! That’s my problem. My Toaster oven size pans fits but not if the turntable rotates. And unfortunately, there is no way to turn the turntable off, so I guess I can only use 8” round or square. I was hoping there would be a way to turn off the rotation, but it doesn’t appear that my model (COuntoure RV-200S-CON) allows me to do that. THanks, Seanette

Stast01,
I agree! However, the ovenís manual says NOT to use the oven without the turntable in place and NOT to restrict the turntable. But....if Iím using the rack, there should be no reason why I need the turntable. Right? Iím going to call COuntoure and ask them WHY the turntable glass has to be used. Thanks, for this information.

IMO/FWIW

I would guess, Seanette, that the mfg. has certain design parameters about how hot the cooking container can get. Keeping it spinning on the turntable will tend to equalize any small internal temperature disparities.

Using a square pan, without the turn table turning, could result in random high internal temperatures at unpredictable spots, which might result in the container cracking due to internal stresses in the material.

Pyrex square glass baking dishes containers come to mind, as possibly subject to this IMO.

In any event, just as any manufacturer does, this one likely wants to minimize exposure for personal injury and property damage.

Peter

Yep, I finally broke down and bought a toaster oven. And I am learning to love it. Boy oh boy, there is always a new gadget or tool to try. I may find that the setup and heat up time for DO cooking is offset by the speed of a portable oven. Big quantities though, the DO's rule!

Iíve read the manual and it states to use the included rack and a pan without protruding edges, like the included round pan. The problem is that the turntable rotates, and there doesnít seem to be a way to turn it off, so using anything other than a round pan will interfere with the rotation.

Iíve looked online and other convection microwave ovens have racks built in (just like a regular oven) so that pans slide onto the rack, but in the Airstreams, it is a rack that is placed on the turntable....which doesnít seem to have an on/off switch.

Any suggestions? Do any of you bake with something other than the included round pan? If so, what do you use and does it cook/bake correctly?

Thanks,
Seanette Meserole
You can use any kind of pan that will fit in the oven cavity!

So just wondering. Could you remove the glass and wheeled circle and insert a pan upside down so that the rotating drive wouldn't be touching anything and then put the pan you want to bake in on top of the upside down pan. Would that work?

Thumbs down

That would seriously compromise the air circulation around the baking pan IMO, thus spoiling the even convection baking of, say, a cake or bread, which relies on very even temps all-around. Convection ovens are great because they surround the bread/cake with a very consistent air mass.

Yeah, but I do not see why you could not remove the rotating plate, put the wire rack in and put the pan on the wire rack. I just tried it in mine and the wire rack straddles the rotation element so the rack and whatever is on it do not move.

This sounds like it would be almost like a home convection oven. It would be nice if the rack didn't have the nubs sticking up on both sides. Then it would be just like home convection cooking. It would support the whole pan instead of sitting on the nubs with only three support points.

Our problem is a little different. We purchased a 2012 FC last year. It has the original Mic/Conv oven but unfortunately the previous owner didn't leave the rack behind. We have looked hard and can't seem to find the correct replacement. We are able to bake without it but no roasting. Any thoughts on where we can find a replacement rack?

Thanks

Chuck & Janet

What is the brand and model number, ChuckZ? Does the mfg. not list any parts available for it?

In the briefcase which came with the trailer, which contains your owner's manual, there should also be a mfg. pamphlet for the appliance, which should have a parts list IMO.

That's what I did. I took out one rack also. I never made friends with a convection/microwave. I burned everything, even vegetables.
The other issue was what to do with the parts you removed. They take up valuable counter space.
When I got the Airstream, I didn't want the microwave at knee level and so I opted for the oven (which I use to store bread) and the small microwave in the pull out drawer.

Can I use a metal convection cooking pan in this microwave if I only use the convection mode? Mine is the Cuisinart in the classic.

What does the instruction book say?



There should be one in the briefcase that contains your AS owner's manual.

The convection part needs the raised rack to get the hot air circulating.on all sides of the item being cooked. No hot air under the pan equals a raw bottom.

Get the model number off the plate on the oven. Then go to the manufacturer's website or the dealer, or.Amazon for replacement.

Thank you. The pan I purchased is made for air frying with open holes all around so it should work fine. I was just worried about the metal in the microwave but I guess I'm good.

Sorry for the delayed response Peter. All of that is in the trailer at the storage facility. I will try to get by there in the next few days.

Thanks

I thought it odd as well that it has to be rotating but I used it all the time in our 22íSport and opted to stay with the convection option and not the oven in our 30í.
I bake artisan bread in a French white Pyrex and you may have to adjust cooking times. I love, love this oven. It doesnít go to 450į but because itís convection I put my bread in at 425į and it comes out crusty with a great crumb after 40 minutes. I also bought silicone 8Ē square pans, as well as a silicone loaf and tart pan. The silicone can go up to 500į and Iíve baked a lot in this oven with the silicone and again, everything comes out great. I begin to check things approximately 10Ē before it should be done as convection cooks things a little faster. Iíve made lasagna in the two 8Ē pans. A little more work but thatís okay.
I bought some various sizes of metal cooking stands (like the kind you use in the Instantpot) and I use those when I need different heights to bake and I bought them at WM for $5. Great deal. I have not shut off the turntable as both manuals ( our Sport was a different model, a Cuisinart) recommend not to ever do that.
