Stovetop oven cooking.

Hi, I am new here but am having a great time camping for the first time in my life. Just took delivery of an Oliver last week and getting used to all the systems on it. I wanted to share that I came across a stovetop oven a few months ago and I love it. I didn't know if others have used it. The brand name is Omnia. It is such a unique way of cooking and I like it so much I use it at home too. You can google it to find out more about how it works. For campers with small units that don't have an oven it can do the job of baking just like an oven. I make all kinds of things in my oven. I have made biscuits, cinnamon rolls, lasagna, peach cobbler, meatloaf, sweet potatoes, baked potatoes, yeast bread, egg casseroles, and a few other things. I just wanted to share this with those on this forum. If I can answer any questions about how to use this oven, I will be happy to try to answer. I am excited to be a part of this forum, and look forward to learning from all of you as cooking in a camper is still pretty new to me.

Welcome to the forum.

It kinda looks like a Bundt pan with a lid...

Probably could do all that and more in a regular deep pot with a false bottom and a lid, but with more usable cooking area. Just my observation. Enjoy your new trailer.

Stove Top oven

I've used the Coleman stove top oven many times. You can use metal cake pans or small cookie sheets, etc. The neat thing is that it folds down when not in use, saving space. Widely available at Walmart, Amazon, etc.

https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-20000...+stovetop+oven

Best,
Fran

Wink Stovetop ovens

We have a Coleman Stovetop oven we we bought along with our tent, stove, sleeping bags, and so on, back the summer we were married in 1965. I used the oven a lot but never thought of using in a camper. Our oven is brown and battered but otherwise looks just like the one in the Amazon ad.

Our tent and sleeping bags have moved on to another life, but we still have most of the other camping gear.

Happy baking.
Jeanne

There are some Omnia oven posts on YouTube, but most are in Swedish or German.

Brand of stovetop oven.

It is an Omnia oven. There is quite a bit of information if you google it.

I'm sorry I was on the road all day w/o internet access. The Omnia was engineered especially for stovetop cooking in Sweden. They are manufactured in China. You can see a lot of information at http://omniasweden.com. I have some nice photos, but don't know how to post them here.
I have purchased two Omnia ovens so I have one at home and one on the road. So far I have been able to make just about anything I can do in my oven at home. It is lightweight, compact and I use a thermometer with it so I know how hot it is inside the oven. Recently, the company has come out with a silicone liner which means no clean up. I love my ovens.

A modern version of the old West Bend Ovenette, which work beautifully on a propane cook stove or an electric hot plate. I have a couple of spares in case anyone is looking for one.

I haven't looked it up but I would be interested in a West Bend Ovenette. Do you use them?
Thanks-Jan

I bake with an ovenette on the road. It has a thermostat and is quite handy. Warming rolls, making quiche, etc. etc.You can make muffins, meatloaf, virtually anything that you can do in an oven.

Google West Bend (or Stanley) ovenette and look at the images. Deceivingly simple.

Tom, you can find a lot of information in English on Facebook & by googling Omnia Stovetop ovens. I like your video. It does a good job of showing how the oven works and how it's engiineered.

Annell, The brand is Omnia. You can find information by googling or searching on Facebook. The key is to search using terms Omnia & stovetop oven. I have two and woldln't take for them. I have solar ovens which I like but too difficult to use on the road in most cases.

Good morning. I did check out the Ovenette. Quite ingenious. If you would sell one, please pm me.
Thanks-Jan

When we had the Casita I baked in the Omnia all the time. I really liked it. My daughter in law called 'dibs' on it when we bought the Escape with an oven (they have a 13' Scamp). Nice to hear they have the silicone liner, I'll let her know. I also liked the Cobb for baking (and still do). Cobb Grill America
