Is anyone else finding the microwave/convection oven a pain to use....seems everything I bake in it comes out half done or burnt....and I follow their chart to the letter...tired of cold pizza or burnt biscuits.

Lou, we took a course on the use of the oven at Lazy Days in Tampa. You have to use convect bake for anything you would put in a normal oven and watch the time. Also do preheat then adjust the time on your standard receipe by reducing about 20-25 % the first time you cook and adjust from there. If you have a stoneware pizza pan you can cook your pizza on the grill (if your grill has a cover). Taking the course was a great help to us. Hope this helps you. John

They talk about reduced cooking times, but we haven't found that to be true in the convection/microwave in our old Montana or the Redwood, unless you're using the combo mode of both convection and microwave. We did that with baked potatoes and they were done quicker, hot inside, and crisp outside. Other than that difference we love it and that's part of the reason we opt'd not to get the conventional oven. Plus like the fact it exhaust the heat outside rather than heating the inside, especially when you're running both AC because the outside temp is in the 90s.

I hate to admit it but we're convection stupid We have one in the RV and we have a new 6 burner stove/convection being installed in our house within a few weeks but so far I can only cook popcorn in the thing. Who would have ever thought we'd have to read a book to operate an oven. After I master the oven I'm sure they'll come out with a complicated iron.

Thank you for all the info...guess I will just have to fiddle with it until I get it right. Just frustrating when you think you have done everything right and things just aren't right.

Everything we own and wear is "Wash-n-Wear", but in keeping with the theme of this thread, we love our Convection/Microwave. Learned to use the one in the Montana, so when we ordered our RW we opt'd for the storage drawers vs a conventional oven. Used an RV oven maybe twice in approx 25 years, but use the covection all the time.

I have a convection oven in my stove at home - my question is, would the convection in the micro be the same (only smaller) as using the one in the s&b stove? I almost never use anything but convection in the oven at home any more.

I would think that it would depend on the one in the S&B, is it a gas or electric and does it use either gas or electric to suppliment the Hot Air from the Convection?? Some oven to use both, but on the flip side if you use the right dishes you can use both Convection and Mircowave at the same time (we've only tried Baked Potatos using both). I just wish there was more info avail on the different functions, as I've even gone the the Mfr Web site and no more info there either.
