Glad you ordered a Road Pro oven. You know, those truckers know all about 12v appliances. They even have a small 12v crock pot. Put the food in the pot, turn it on, and dinner is ready when they arrive. And Bob's your Uncle...as they say.

SO funny you say "Bob's your Uncle." I had never heard that expression until visiting Dave (17B owner) in B.C. last week.

Excited about getting the Road Pro. Thanks again! Have to check out the crock pot. Another priority is a 12V flat iron. Never wore that much makeup but have given it up and it feels great but though I like curly for others, have to keep mine straight!

If the Road Pro oven only goes up to 300 degrees F, it is already, more or less, a crock pot. You won't get crisp fries.

My focus with the Road Pro oven was to bake potatoes, which it did beautifully. I sliced them thin first, a little butter on top, and 45-50 min later, voilá. Just an inexpensive way to bake small items of food when the stovetop won't do. And takes up hardly any storage space. I also bought cookie dough in a tube and made cookies.

I hadn't heard of the Road Pro before, so looked it up. Other than the advantage of heating while on the road, how is it beneficial over a stove top or BBQ method of heating and cooking? I ask, as it does not sound like an oven for baking things, more for just warming up.

What I had planned to get, was a stove top oven. Lots of different brands out there.

Sometimes I just don't feel like cooking over a stove and Ned is barbecuing something, so I just put a big sliced potato in, butter on top, cook for 50+ min. (Maybe longer, can't recall). I know it only heats up to 300, but it works. Yes, there are many ways of cooking, but this worked for us in the Casita.

Gotcha. So many ways of cooking up good food, and as long as we are getting good eats, all is good.
