    Don't try to cook your food directly on the shelf above the gas flame. You need a wire rack type shelf which you can put in higher up.

    The trick here is to put a pizza stone on the metal plate directly above the flame ,the Americans also use a ceramic tile .

    You will find nothing burns on the bottom and things cook more evenly

    we have a clay pizza plate.

    pop it on the plate, put in the oven and it comes out cooked.

    dunno where we got it though. :Doh:

    is your oven temp control (thermostat)working ok ?

    We mastered ours in about 11 months but it was hard work so in the end, like scotjim, we binned it and bought a 'Bush' electrical oven with rotisserie and griddle plate mounted on top.

    Magic - there is nothing quite like a 'joint' properly cooked on a rotisserie - we have to fight the cats for the 'pork crackling' - or the taste of a properly cooked pizza.

    We are looking around for a dish-washer small enough to fit in the space left vacant by the oven - maybe a 'drawer' type dish-washer

    As well as Smev and the other brands mentioned, you can also fit a Stoves oven, they offer an LPG range which you can pick up for best prices from local Narrowboat chandlers. Their 500 DIT model fits in the space of most US RV ovens and includes oven, seperate grill, 4 burner hob with a glass lid (which can be removed if neccessary).

    Bonus being is that with the warranty if anything goes wrong, a nice fella from Stoves will come to you and sort out any problems.

    Personally I would bin the magic chef and replace with a popular European model.

    If you're not up to binning the oven yet, the owners manual suggests that burnt food is caused by insufficient pre-heat time.

    As the "blow torch" used in this oven warms the interior, the base plate gets much hotter than the desired temp until the selected temp is reached.
    give it a good 10 minutes to warm up properly and cook high up on a shelf and it will be fine

    After burning far too much food, I've not had a problem since i allowed the preheat time.

    Quite right, We not only cook but bake in ours, everything is perfect.
    Have heard many times the words,"I cant get on with the American oven."
    If you leave it on for 15 mins before you cook with it,it will be fine.
    Dont forget to convert from F to C though.
