I had a Coleman oven before and it did not work very well. That is why I am not sure that this other oven is worth the money.

Have you ever tried the charcoal box ovens? A simple cardboard box lined with foil and heatted by briquettes. We use them for scouts with good results. Can only be used when fire allowed, though. You can cook anything, just like a dutch oven. Much lighter,too!

Looks like a rebranded Brinkmann propane oven that was sold several years ago.

I looked at the web page selling the oven and it does look like a Brinkman. I did a search for reviews on the Brinkman and it does not sound like it is worth the $70. I have never used a dutch oven but maybe I should try one.

I have never tried that. What I used in scouts was wrapping the meal in foil and placing it in the coals and covering it. Then cook for 1/2 hour. I guess I was just looking for something easier.

Another possiblity is the Dutch Oven Dome which allows you to use a DO on your camp stove as an oven. With so many places banning use of charcoal or wood to cook with, it lets you still use your DO for baking. I have one stashed in my Casita.

Similar concept to the folding Coleman Oven discussed earlier.

I have two suggestions. We have used an Outback Oven. We like the way it cooks but some people feel it leaves the same taste in everything you cook. And getting the fiberglass tent arranged just right so it doesn't burn is tricky.

Recently we bought an Omnia Oven. Although we have only used it a couple times, it seems to work really well.

You can do quite a lot with a camp Dutch oven. At the Pocono rally last weekend, we cooked a chicken pot pie for the pot luck. I was able to cook the chicken, potatoes, etc. Then boil it all together, and finally bake the crust on top. All this on one Dutch oven!

We also inverted the lid of the DO onto campfire coals and cooked burgers on it. While cooking the burgers on the lid, we boiled corn on the cob in the Dutch oven.

The Omnia reminds me of a gadget my Mother had back in the late 40's or early 50's. A stove top potato baker. CampChef also had a DO with a similar design. Looks like good designs get used over and over.

Once we started using an oven we use it for 90% of the cooking just so easy. The one we use is the coleman instastart oven, hooks to a 16oz propane cylinder. I dont think they make them anymore but you can still find them online, see link below. I think anything like this would work. This is the perfect size to store under the front bottom bunk where some people put a porta pottie. Love it but you do have to get used to cooking on it. The controls allow you to control flame size and thus temp but you have to keep a good eye on the temp gauge so things do not burn.
