We went back and forth about the oven as well (actually included it on the first build sheet). After reading the posts and seeing how small the internal size of the oven was, we took it out of the build. We also thought about using it as storage; however, the thought of pots and pans rattling around inside and possibly doing damage squashed that idea. (Note: For Christmas, we received a Coleman camp oven from the kids and are anxious to give it a try.)

Like balgo alluded to, a BBQ works good too. I put a griddle, or a tinfoil tray, under what is baking to remove the effect of direct heat.

Not sure if it was here, or over on FGRV, that that Omnia and another stovetop oven were discussed. Both seemed to get good reviews, and produce good stuff.

edit: Found it. The other was a Fox Hill Oven.

Who needs a built-in oven. My 12" dutch can cook anything you can and still enjoy the satisfaction of outdoor camp cooking!

when the ground is frozen or it has been raining for 3 days, remember that. cooking/baking outside has always been an option available to everyone, but inside…….??

I have used a dutch oven a lot, and it is a great cooking vessel. However, it is way too heavy for me to want to bring along in our trailer, plus unless you bury it in coals, or at least put them on the lid, it cooks from the bottom up, leaving many foods cooked way more towards the bottom of the pan. At home, it is always the go to pot for cooking in the oven though, where it is fully surrounded by heat.

As shown in the link I provided for those two stovetop stoves, I have used the Outback Oven hordes of times in the past, mostly while on backcountry canoe trips. It is very light and packs small, plus works very good. You do have to be able to produce a controlled small flame to make it work good.

I have been reading a bit on the Omnia and Fox Hill ovens, and it seems the Fox Hill might be the best performer, not too heavy, but a bit on the bulky side.

I really like the idea of the Omnia, and am very tempted to pull the pin on ordering one. Very light (0.5 kg), and not to big. The biggest downfall seems to be storing it, as it is a light aluminum.

Still, the BBQ does work great, but the Omnia could be making some nice bread while the steaks and corn are on the barby.

There's nothing more satisfying than the smell of baking fresh bread in the camper on a hot, humid, rainy day inside. Or, slow cooking that big casserole, or a whole chicken, in the propane oven. Stovetop cooking might be more efficient but not if you got tendonitis, plenty of spare propane, or hate stirring things. If I had a stove I'd use it all the time not because I like to bake but just just to justify/even out the price-weight differential between a stove and a cast iron 4-quart-er. Yep, that's why we camp--so we can cook stuff longer like when at home. :
