Took this baby to Cumberland Island to make camp pizza in the wilderness. Tied it up in a tree with my dough on a 9" pizza stone and lit a candle lantern below it to get the dough to rise and went off to shoot the sunset for 1.5 hours. Came back and the dough had doubled in size. Used a 1944 coleman twin burner gas stove and quickly got the oven up to 350. Made a mushroom and gorgonzola pizza sauce and topped with Salami, mushrooms, mozzarella and dill havarti. With the exception of the sticking to the stone a little the pizza came out perfect - like a brick oven. Best pizza i ever had - Chef Ramsey - kiss my blank
Love this product! We aren't minimalists but are avid car tent campers. We are the ones with the big coolers full of frozen vacum sealed steaks etc that find campfire meals a big part of the fun. This little contraption was exactly what I wanted it to be. Nothing like fresh baked muffins in the morning and rolls with dinner. Awesome! MY family commented on our recent trip to Big Sur that I baked better in this little thing than I did at home. LOL. It fit fine on my old GreatLand Camp Stove too. We discovered when we got home that it works great on the side buriner of our home BBQ grill too!
It's a great product for Scout Troops looking to add a little extra for when they use their camping stoves. It packs up really small. Although we haven't used ours yet, we've seen other Troops that said when the weather is quite cold it doesn't hold the temperature as well, but it still works. A possible solution could be to get some foil or other insulator for the sides to help it hold heat better. There's holes on the sides and top, so as long as one surface is uncovered it should be able to let the air in. All in all, good product for the money.
Easy baking in camp
I call this little portable oven my Easy Bake Camp Oven. First time out I baked gluten-free brownies, cornish hens and made the most delicious, if not the best yet, baking powder bisquits with the gluten free Bisquick mix. I was beyond thrilled at the results of the three things above. One suggestion -- get the temperature at least 50 degrees above what is needed so it will hold the temp where you want it. This was gourmet camping at its best for [$]
Great for Peace Corps Volunteers!
Without access to an oven on a regular basis, the camp oven allows me to bake whenever I want. I've been able to cook biscuits, bread, quiesh, etc. It can be a bit unstable on my gas burner, but I'm learning how to work with that. I have found that folding it up after every use has caused the sides to bend out a shape a bit, so now I just leave it set-up. Though overall it is a wonderful product!!!
Great item for "glamping"
We used this for a weekend to roast a 10-lb beef roast for pulled BBQ sandwich contest among 25 other campers. It turned out very well and perfectly cooked.
The oven is a plus to help us win the contest!
It is easy to clean and compact by folding flat and easily store-away for future use. Definitely a great kitchenware to add to your "glamping" experience - Camp well & Eat well!!
great stove top oven
I use this with my Coleman stove for lunch at the sign shop.Great for warming up food while I bop around the shop.Still new with the oven on breads and biscuits.I will be steam cooking Ribs,next go around.So far so good.I think some type of insulation to the exterior would shorten warm up time and hold heat longer...But of course that is for my needs...
ONE HOT PRODUCT
baked some great biscuits and brownies, easy to use. watch your time, because it holds heat well, it is hotter than a regular stove.
When you open the door, heat escapes quickly, so becareful
It works best over a camp stove where temperature can be controled
Tried it over the fire, couldnt get hot enough and temperature was not consistent.
Great camp kitchen addition!!
Before I go camping I like to prepare meals at home in an aluminum pie pan, then when I'm all set up in camp and ready to eat, I put the pans in the oven to bake. Great for chicken, shrimp, salmon...and best of all blueberry muffins for breakfast.
Temp stays fairly uniform when used with Coleman stove.
10 years plus and still baking
Great oven when you want more options with a meal during camping trips. Have used for making buscuts, muffins, cookies and cinnamon rolls. Just place on top of stove and you are ready to go. Have had mine for over ten years and would not travel without it. Kids love pizzas during campouts.
