I bought a Stovetop Convection Oven at the thrift shop, therefore, no instructions.
There is a rack & a pan insert. I checked the net, but can't find instructions anywhere, can't even find the manufacturer. I bet it's made in China. Underneath there is a deep recessed area. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

I finally found ot on the net, it's a Conventionaire cooker. The recessed bottom sits on the stove. Pic follows. I still haven't found instructions that I can access.

I'd caution you about using it inside the trailer. Unless you get a go ahead from someone that's used one inside successfully. I'd worry about the excess heat. I can't tell from the picture how well insulated it may be.... I know the "oven" from the picture Morgan posted would put out 200-400 degrees of uninsulated heat.... enough to cause some serious heat issues. What I'm trying to say and seem to be doing it badly, is try it on a camp stove outside first...

Good idea! I'm going to see if it bakes a quick bread. Will try it on my kitchen stove.

Thanks bunches!

Morgan, does your camp oven really work, & do you use it outside or inside your trailer?

Ah, yes. It's coming back to me. A folding Coleman oven. Something about cooking muffins inside the trailer at the Spring Mill get together in Indiana. The story that was never told. Danger, intrigue and mostly melted trailer parts.

Use it outside the trailer and DAMHIKT!

I think it's called a Coleman Outdoor Camp Oven for a reason:

Lee used it at Lost Maples SP to cook cornbread. She cooked in the Casita with no problems, just watch that nearby parts don't get too hot.

Lee used it at Lyman Lake SP on a gas ring in the community center to cook burritos.

It's hard to regulate the temperature because, as Donna said, it is not insulated.

Hey!
I have one of those things. Works fine on an old coleman that uses white gas, but doesn't get up to temp on my propane camp stove. Yes I ONLY use it outside. Most of the time it's all packed up and on a shelf in the garage. Just too much trouble to take along. I'm already taking a stove AND a tabletop BBQ. When I do get enough heat into it it works well. It gets so little use that it's probably one of next years garage sale items for the Emily gathering.
If you try yours make sure to have lots of space around the pan. This lets the heat surround it. Too big of a pan and you have cool spots.

There aren't a lot of directions that came with mine. Here's what it says---
* * * *
1 Center oven over the burner of your camp stove.Protect your stove and oven from wind as much as possible.

2 preheat oven slowly and allow enough time for the desired baking temperature to become stableized.

3 Place pans or other materials, such as potatoes, in the center position of the oven. Do not use pans larger than 8 inches square or 8 inches in diameter.

4 Varying wind conditions and outdoor temperatures may cause baking time to change from that in your recipies. Use normal kitchen testing methods to determine when food is done.
* * * *
That's it. Have fun and don't get wet.
Jim
