Coleman's Creative Oven....

Years ago used one of these ovens on my boat. Also used a 'Flame Tamer" or flame spreader under it..... what ever you call those things wthat look like a flattened fry pan with holes in it. Also used to place sheets of foil on the top and sides to try to even out the heat a li ttle. Some times, due to the heal of the boat, when making layer cake layers ..... they would come out wedge shaped ....just rotate the next layer 90 or so.

I checked a couple you tube videos and think I'm going to like this gizmo! Here's one:



Looks like the bottom glows red so your flame diffuser idea seems like a good one.

None of my one burner stoves are going to work so it's looking like I'm in the market for a new stove. Some folks seem to have success cooking over a campfire, maybe try that later.

Trial cookie and muffin run tomorrow on the kitchen stove. Maybe I'll try "beer can cookies" and save an empty can for the cookies.

Take a look at 2:26 into the video.
Wouldn't you like to see the bottom of those cookies?
Have to admit, I fast-forwarded and didn't have the sound up. But, those cookies look crunchy.

A couple other videos said they thought the temp gauge tended to show a little cooler than reality and to plan accordingly. Another said they place a pan underneath so things don't burn.

The oven is indeed a little crude, sort of like a dutch oven, but the possibilities seem intriguing, sure better than those nasty microwave brownie globs when the munchie urge strikes.
