Has anyone got any tips on cooking in the oven in their RV. I made cornbread and was very disapointed. It was crunchy on the bottom and pure white on top. I've used gas ovens at home and haven't had results like that. I'm thinking that space could be put to better use if this is as good as it gets. I could just have a countertop and use my microwave.

I don't have a clue about your oven Sparkle, but I don't have an oven in my rv. I carry a toaster oven I got at Walmart for about $50 that will bake a 9" pan. I've baked cassaroles and cakes and cookies in it and it has done pretty good. Fernie

I don't know this personally...but I have read on other forums that women install a stone insert IN their RV ovens to hold and distribute the heat better, to make them work and brown better. I don't know how my oven works in our trailer..I have never used it and don't intend to. I too, like Fernie, have a portable electric oven..I cook everything in it from cornbread and cakes to casseroles to whole chickens and it works marvelously... works on electricity, therefore the parks dime..I store the electric skillet and other pots and pans in our oven.. I seldom use the cooktop either. Could take that complete unit out and put all sorts of things there instead..

I do have a pizza stone. I hadn't thought about taking it with me. I'll try that first. I hate the thought of buying a new appliance, I'm trying to download what I already have! But if it makes a difference in my lifestyle I'll go with it. I made Jade and Ruby Stir-Fry, Shrimp Fried Rice, and Battered Chicken Strips with Dipping Sauce the last time I was out. The list of ingredients was tremendous, and frankly Chinese Restaurants do it better! I'll order out next time. Then I made Spicy Turkey Chili and cornbread. It was good, but I could have fed the entire campsite. I need to cut my recipes way back.

I use the pizza stone under the bottom rack, it does help to even out the heat and I learned a trick from others to cook things 25 degrees less and a little bit longer. I also cook 25 degrees less in my convection oven....yeah take out tastes much better especially Chinese food...YUM! Seeya down the road, Jenny

Hey Sparkle, just saw this post....sorry. I read on another forum that a couple of the ladies got those baking pans that have an air cushion on the bottom and they said that worked great. Kept things from burning on the bottom. When I had an oven in the other house, I usually lowered temp by about 25 degrees and seemed to work fine. Don't have one in this house, I have the micro-wave/convection. Didn't see the need for an oven 'cause the only thing I baked in it was cornbread for DH. I would just as soon fry my cornbread as bake it. When I make it. Which is not often now. He was the big bread eater. Sure do miss baking, though. Good Roads, Sharon

It worked! The pizza stone worked! I made a vegetable and cheese roll up with Phyllo Pastry and it didn't burn on the bottom and had a beautiful crisp flaky golden top! Oh I'm so good to myself....

It was so pretty I should have taken a photo...and taste...Oh yum...although with all the hiking I had done that day Roast Boot would have been delicious too.

Hmmmm.......Roast Boot....Don't think I've tried that one. What seasonings do you use and how long do you roast it? Can you use a crockpot? :p Good Roads, Sharon
