Coleman Instastart propane camping oven

April 10, 2007 - 7:42pm -- slothbear

I was wondering if anyone has experience with this oven. At home, I bake two to three times per week. Right now, I'm traveling across America in an RV that doesn't have an oven. I'm really starting to miss baking my own bread.

I think Coleman came out with this oven last year and I haven't been able to find a lot of reviews -- and none that cover baking bread. This is certainly the opposite of a super-precise commercial oven with steam control -- but I'm willing to accept some imperfect bread instead of store-bought bread.

Do you use convection?

April 6, 2007 - 8:21am -- thetwood

I'm just starting to experimnet with my new all-gas range with convection oven. I was wondering if others with convection ovens used the convection feature, or do you turn it off to bake bread? If using, do you adjust the temperature down 25 degrees as the manual states? I'm sure I'll try all of the variables, but it will take some time and I've got bread to bake for Easter. Knowing what others did would give me a good place to start.
