Although I have to brew cups one at a time, I've still found it to be my best solution.

The only draw back I've seen is that it does require electricity.
I have the four cup B&D from Wally and it has been great. Sherry, you don't have to have electricity to use these. Just boil a pot of water on the stove and slowly pour it in the top. We use ours boondocking all the time, and if we have hookups, then all the better.

Does anyone have ideas for an oven? I thought I'd like to replace the microwave with a convection oven, but they're WAY too big. We don't do the camp-fire iron pot thing, so I'm thinking there should be some other ideas out there.

PS: God Bless you Pete, you've given me so much advice.

Do you cook outside and have a propane/gas stove? If so, a Coleman Portable Camp Oven may work for your needs (do not use inside... generates waaaay to much heat). They've been around for years. My Mom used one to bake berry pies and biscuits when we went camping back when I was a kid. Coleman Portable Camp Oven

I have a toaster oven and works for my (very small) baking needs. I've baked cookies in it (about four at a time) and also the very necessary toasted cheese sandwich (with hot soup) on wet and chilly Pacific NorthWET campouts.

Cool

Toaster ovens are great. For just the two of us, I hardly ever heat up the 'big oven'.

Between a toaster oven and an electric skillet, you would be pretty well set.

Of course it depends on whether you camp with "shorepower" electricity or not. Powering either a toaster oven or an electric skillet by solar panel would be a challenge. I suppose a generator would work, but I don't have figures to hand.

The Coleman oven will work over most campstoves, so you can "power" it with propane, butane, white gas, etc. if you're boondocking.

I have a Black and Decker Toast-R-Oven Countertop Convection Oven. Purchased it at WalMart. I like it better than the old Toaster oven I had. This one is deeper so I can put a small pizza in it where I coiuldn't with the other one.

I doubt you'd ever be able to use solar. I happen to have a generator if I choose to use the Toaster Oven or the Microwave when dry camping. The micro has it's permanent place but to use the toaster oven I either put it on the stove cover or outside on a table. The exterior of it gets much hotter than the micro so I'd never put it in a cabinet.

Mine too Joy. It rides/stores in a cabinet, but I put it on the stove cover for cooking. Besides those cookies baking need to have the aroma swirl around inside the trailer!

A good toaster oven or the convection combo Joy described sound like a great idea if you have shore-power. I tried a cheepy just for biscuits or that 4-cookie batch once in a while. Didn't check the specs on the box - when we opened it, discovered it had 'on/off' and timer dials, but NO temp. indicator - DUH! And the instructions also said to 'broil' the top of items during last few minutes of cooking to brown - NOPE. That little learning experience was donated to the Quartzsite Women's Club Rummage Sale. At the same sale, I found a vintage (from the 50's) "Westbend Ovenette" in original box. Do a 'google' - this is quite a gadget ... a stove top arrangement complete with TEMPERATURE gauge. Since we went from RV park hookup to daughter's electicity, I haven't tried it yet, but it should be fun to use, and does not take up much storage space. If I don't like it, I'll eBay-it and make a profit! Happy campin' and cookin' - L 'n D

Good idea. I hadn't thought of that, but it certainly would work.
