We bought a low wattage toaster from Asda, Montrose for the Gobur Folding Caravan, and, thanks to the extremely limited work surface, managed to burn a large hole in the 'cool wall' plastic on the first afternoon ... It's since won 3rd prize in the Halloween Competition and can cook toast as quickly as 1 slice every 5 minutes when the sun's shining [1 side sunburnt, the other peely walley from all that heat ...]On our fourth van now and have opted for no oven after van two, we found we rarely used it and when we did it wasn’t that great. We now use a double skillet and we even do toast in it.
Omni oven.Hi all,
We are due to pick up a "new to us" van next week, 2015 Carthago compactline. It has no oven and grill, just a 3 burner hob. We have been looking at perhaps buying a small electric mini oven and grill but thought we would seek some good ideas from other funsters.
I just wanted to update my post, now that we've used our new Cadac Grillo Chef 2. I must admit we're chuffed to bits with it. We are using it with a reusable / washable BBQ mat which is easy to wipe off, so the grill doesn't get messy. We heat the Cadac up on full heat then turn back to medium after a few minutes, and for us it cooks brilliantly. We've got it connected to our MH BBQ gas point using a 2m hose. So far, so good!Another vote for the Ridge Monkey - we've got the XL version after recommendations on here, and it really is excellent. We've cooked beefburgers, sausages, toasted sandwiches in it so far. If you go for the low fat sausages etc then we find those suit the RM better as there are less cooking juices.
We've also got a Cadac Grillo Chef, but that's yet to be used for the first time, so I can't comment on how good (or otherwise!) that is yet
Finally we've got one of the smaller Remoska cookers that we use when we're on hookup, and we really like that as well - it's handy to have.
I guess it's a case of finding what suits you most. An oven was on our list of "wants", but was the only thing our motorhome didn't have, but it's proved not to be a problem, and tbh it's good to have the extra storage.
