We have it and I realize that it can't be used inside. We would have it on the floor burning up the place in no time.

We never use it except to have bread rise in it at home. Will have to actually use it when camping and see how it does with bread or anything.

Atwood, right? Their ovens are generally match-lit and have a pilot and thermocouple, so the thermostat can turn the heat on and off, and so that if the flame goes out the gas is shut off. Usually only the stovetop burners - ironically the ones which would be trivial to reach with a lighter - have a piezo ignition in the ranges, but I understand that the stoves used by Escape don't have igniters.

Downside is you loose some drawer space and counter space if you went with a 2 burner cook top.
One reason I ended up getting the oven is the way it's installed: as far to the dinette bulkhead as possible, whereas the cooktops are installed with what looks like 4 or 5 inches of counter space between the stove and that bulkhead. I've been very happy with how it looks (the stove is also black, like the oven, as are the cover and range hood).

Counter top burners on our oven are piezo ignited; oven is a manual light

That is how our oven works and burners work too . Nice surprise do not need to use match or lighter to light burners like we did on previous burners . Also burners you really can control flame . The oven is the same as it always was , you do need to light .We do not find it a problem and once pilot is lit ,you can just leave it until you won't have any use for it . All worth it to have the oven for us . Pat

Some folks who are handy with tools have actually added an igniter to their oven. You can find quite a few threads on the subject in other RV forums. The other choice is to have a box of the very long matches. Makes lighting it easier.

Maybe this clarifies the choices a bit:
  • The Atwood range (with oven and stovetop burners) has a piezo igniter for the stovetop burners (so I assume it's the Wedgewood rather than the base model). The oven burner is match-light with a pilot burner.
  • Atwood makes a corresponding cooktop that installs similarly and has the same features, but that's not what Escape uses; instead, the stove-only appliance is a completely different design which drops into the countertop - that means it can be rotated a quarter-turn if that fits your style of countertop use better.
Does this seem right?

I find a barbecue/grill lighter much more convenient than matches, but I agree that length is good.

True, but ours seem to always be out of gas when we need them.....
