    Big shallow Teflon coated pan with a glass lid. Put on low gas ring,perfect for finishing off part baked bread.
    How often do you cook a Sunday roast whilst away in the van....or for that matter how often do you bake a cake.
    Ovens are a complete waste of space in a MH. If you cant possibly live without one get a halogen oven.

    We have a SMEV oven in our van - I never use it - it heats up the whole van too much!

    I do roast beef and roast potatoes on my Weber BBQ! Perfect results!!:thumb::thumb:

    We thought we would need an oven when we bought our van but have never used it - and neither did previous owners. Double skillet does a great job.

    All our oven does is add weight !!
    It has not been used since new. I did fire it up once just to make sure it worked but thats about it

    no oven...no problem

    We have a combi microwave unit if we need an oven.. the double skillet works fine.. on our second one now ..1st one over 25 years ago. we also use the Cobb outside.. that can bake, fry, griddle etc., never had the need for an oven on an RV or european in 20 plus years John.. waste of space. Plenty of other ways to get round the problem.

    I learned a long time ago that a large heavy bottomed Teflon coated pan with a glass lid does exactly the same as an oven.
    What I do use a lot is my slow cooker, I have a separate 500 watt inverter wired to the engine battery and when traveling long distances load the slow cooker before leaving and then plug into the inverter,hot meal when i stop. Also on the rare occasions that I have hookup I use it all the time.
    I also have the halogen oven instead of a microwave, it does the same job only better. Regarding FB pies...............Errrrr cant think of anything that I would want to do with one except use it as a frisbee.

    if you have to MAKE do to get around not haveing a oven then your van is incomplete,bit like saying i dont need a sink as i can make do with a washing up bowl:RollEyes:,if it aint got four ring's a full grill,and an oven its a incomplete motorhome.
    And as far as FB pies go,the best thing ever invented for the motorhomer:Rofl1:

    never been in a situation where iv had to eat soggy cardboard, so cant compare it to a FB pie:Wink:
    so how do you cook a 5lb chicken,roast spud's,roast parsnip's,roast onion,and yorkshire pud and apple pie all at the same time without a oven???
    5 romoska at the same time?:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
