Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

Here's a response from Fox Hill.

....

The baking area is limited to the size of the pan that comes with the oven. We include a non-stick baking pan that is 8x8x2. The Single Oven has one 8" pan, and the Double Oven has two 8" pans. You can use almost any pan that is 8" or smaller. I have a 8" spring form pan for cheesecakes that I use in the Double Oven. You have to use a baking pan for your food.

About cookies, I can usually get 6 cookies in my 8" baking pan (but I like large cookies).

Yes the loaf pans are only for use in the Double Oven. There you have the height necessary for the loaf pans to fit.

....

Now I just need to measure our favorite Amy's pizza to see if it would fit.

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

Are you going to come to the Escape Rally in Osoyoos for a bake-off with Jim Bennett?

You're a sure-fired winner if the rules say you must bake inside the trailer.

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

I'm game, but we are not sharing the results.

Plus, I can use my oven in the trailer, no problem.

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

You can use the Outback in the trailer?
Where do you build the fire?

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

It uses a stove. See the first picture above. You do have to be able to turn the burner down real low though, as it is extremely efficient with fuel.

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

And, I've been thinking you had it over a wood fire ever since you first posted the pic.

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

I'm not that primitive, you know. Though I do know a few people who use reflector ovens to bake at campfires, and they work real good.

I recall reading a post a few years ago on the Casita Club forum from someone that had used the Coleman Oven in tbeir Casita. They noticed that the fan hood starting making an odd sound while they were baking. When they checked they discovered that the heat from the oven had melted the plastic fan parts enough that the fan assembly assembly seized up. The oven being essentially a tallish uninsulated metal box made this seem fairly plausible

Re: Omnia oven/Fox Hill oven

We use the Omnia oven in the trailer all the time. It requires the lowest temperature setting possible on the cooktop. The cooktop knobs feel uncomfortably warm after the oven has been on for awhile so I just pull them off after adjusting the flame. I could just cover them with foil.

We have an Outback oven also. It also works well but we have two complaints. You have to be very careful to avoid scorching the fiberglass cover. (I have heard that some folks just replace the covers regularly like a maintenance item.) And my wife insists the Outback imparts a funny flavor to everything we cook in it.
