Default Toaster Oven?

When we got Alligator last year it didnt have a toaster oven, now we're on a month long trip and the wife is making noise that she wants one.
There is a 14-1/2 by 8-1/4 hole to the right of the sink that should hold the TO.

Has anyone replaced their oven? Which one fits easily?

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Joe & Pat

In our GMC my wife wants to get rid of the oven for a cooktop and more storage then replace the regular microvave with a convection one as it will also brown.
Our BB has had the stock stove replaced with a regular motorhome type oven below/range on top - the toaster oven idea is a good one as you won't have to fire up the big oven and waste propane if your'e plugged in.

Just have to watch how you dissapate the heat from the TO/convection oven if the space has a cover/roof on it.

Dear Joe,

I would encourage you to do your homework on toaster ovens. Silly as it sounds, most toaster ovens out there do not make toast worth a ****. We have Black and Deckers both in the house and in the RV and they both will burn one end of the toast while the other end is raw. I did a lot of reading on toaster ovens (after the fact) and found out that they all have that problem. Toaster ovens, generally speaking, make great small ovens, but if you want toast, get a toaster. Our convection oven does work very well as a microwave and as an oven as well.

Good luck!

Thanks!

Since the TO's are pretty cheap, $30-40, we may try one out.
The Convection/Microwave is the only other oven we have so it might be worthwhile.
That link was a great help, thanks again...

Default Toaster Oven?

Good Christmas morning all!

I have just installed a new GE microwave - straight microwave with no convection. I never liked the old Kitchenaid and especially didn't like the convection feature - too slow, hot, and difficult to use (burned the @#%$! out of me reaching up and taking a hot casserole out).

Since I do most of the cooking, a microwave and gas cooktop is sufficient for all my cooking.

Martha however, wants something baked every once in a while.

Anyone had any experience with convection (not the ususal "toaster ovens") countertops?

There are several on the market from the very cheap to the very expensive. If you have one, suggestions would be welcome.

Tommy,

Merry Christmas!

A little clarification... Who burnt their hand on the hot casserole??

We actually like our Sharp convection/microwave??

Check out the link a few threads above. The internet has a lot of "oven" review sites. You should be able to get a good heads up there as well as a few chiming in here.

Keep us posted on what you find too!

Default Toaster Oven?

It was me! Fixed one of my famous cheese/enchillada casseroles and after baking it in the KitchenAid M/W convection oven for about 2 hours spilled melted cheese/enchillada sauce on my hand. Next time I cook something like that I want it at counter level, not overhead.

When the KitchenAid died a couple of weeks ago, I decided to get just a microwave. That's why I was looking for a good countertop convection oven.

For a oven, we use a electric roaster oven such as:
http://www.google.com/search?q=roast...rlz=1I7SUNA_en

We have cooked turkey breast, bbq, potatoes, chicken, and much much more in one of these ovens very successfully. In summer we set it on a table outside the rig, in winter it helps heat the rig while cooking. Works well for us as fulltimers. We keep it in basement storage when not in use.

Most roaster ovens can also steam and act as a slow cooker. In this way, it is more versatile than a traditional oven. However, a roaster oven does not have the ability to broil foods.

Chicken enchilladas, yum, yum especially with green chillies in them

We use a standard toaster oven for lots of things except... toast of all things. Having read the toaster oven reviews we found out that virtually all toaster ovens stink at making... toast. We usually just take with the toaster from the house on those trips needing toast.

Our Sharp convection/microwave primarily gets used to store bread and chips. It does work well especially with frozen pizzas! I have toyed with the thought of a countertop convection too.

Once again, keep us posted on your countertop oven adventures!
