RV ovens

I have heard some stories about RV ovens. My new camper has an oven and when I try it out I think I will bake gingerbread pudding cake. The huge plus for these are that they heat up perfectly in the microwave.

Here is a batch I made in the house oven.

I lived full-time in a larger travel trailer some decades ago. It had an oven, which I used regularly. They’re a bit fussy because they’re so small and the burner is so close to your food. One trick is to use a small pizza stone to even out the temperature and keep the bottom from burning.

Homemade biscuits and fresh cinnamon rolls... priceless!

I had heard about the pizza stone. I think I will order one today. Thanks for reminding me.

We use ours but mostly just for heating frozen foods and making meatloaf. No delicate baking yet.

I opted to forego the RV range, and when I did my custom cabinetry I added a marine range, the Dickinson Caribbean. BTW, I got it for a heck of a lot less than advertised on their site. We absolutely love this thing, the stovetop burners are first rate, both going from a wee simmer to boiling water fast. The oven works great too. It has a broiler we have used, which works okay, but not as good as an electric one which is way hotter. Electronic ignition for all burners is great, plus it is constructed of top notch stainless steel.

For us, well worth the investment. My wife loves it.

Casitas don't have ovens. Not even offered as an option. But I do like having my Cuisinart Toaster Oven. Even though it's just something else to schlog around, I don't mind because it is very handy and a true multi-tasking appliance, especially for small trailers without the luxury of a built-in oven. They do require electric to operate, so it might not be the first choice for boondockers, but we rarely ever camp without full hook-ups, so it works well for us.
It does emit a lot of heat when it's running, so we usually set it up outside on the "wheel well table" that I made from a WearEver "full sheet" baking tray. It's handy because it's right next to the outside convenience outlet. Works for us anyway.

I have used a tile but it cracked 1st time using the tile in preheating the oven, Home depot has a 13" round pizza stone for 13 bucks and fits perfectly. They are used for grills and such and can handle heat to 500 degrees.

I've heard it said that the main reason Jon Vermilye moved up to the larger Escape is because it had an oven for his blueberry pies.
Nah, really?

Nostalgia BST3AQ Retro 3-in-1 Toaster Oven, that's great! I bought this for my cabin in the mountains, as I do not have a stove there. I was cooking using microwave, griddles, the open fire pit, and an electric hot plate. This 3 in 1 toaster item is awesome. You can consult here: https://vogeltalksrving.com/best-toa...r-rv/#more-873 where I have consulted for buying this oven.

Granite tile

Instead of a pizza stone I got a granite tile 12" X 12" for $3.00. For 3 bucks I have to give it a try. The size seems to be perfect for this size oven. I made cornbread today. So far so good.

I saw this on Van City Van Life (you tube). He bakes using a deep Cast Iron frying pan and skillet set on his burner top. He heats the skillet and frying pan first then places the food inside the frying pan and puts the skillet on top. Lodge sells a 10.5" combo cooker set and Cabela's sells a 12" set of pans. He does pizzas, cinnamon buns, muffins, cupcakes and more. Even though heavy they takes up a lot less space than an oven in tight spaces, and both pans can be used for other things.

That's a nice set. I'm surprised I've never seen it before. Thanks for the tip.

In scouts when we made pizza on camp outs we used a Dutch oven upside down. We made the pizza on the underside of the lid. Lifted the oven off the lid with a magnet used to hold a flashing yellow light on a pickup roof. Hole in the center with a 3/8 X 6” eyebolt and a pair or welding gloves. 12 inch oven: 9 briquettes on the bottom under the lid suspended by 3 pieces of 2 inch copper pipe. 15 on the top ( bottom of the dutch oven.)

We purchased a Casita with the optional micro/convection oven and have been second guessing that decision ever since. It uses a lot of space that could be better used for storage.


I'd like to hear more about stove top baking ideas but with a bit more detail. Stove top baking with a cast iron skillet combo sounds interesting and would love to hear if others have experimented with the technique.



Thanks.

We use an omnia oven when we don't cook on the campfire. https://www.amazon.com/Omnia-Oven-st...2371375&sr=8-1

It is semi-small, but ample for two people. Mainly used for vegetables or cakes
