What are you using for baking? I would like the opportunity to bake a potato, pizza, muffins or bread. I have seen the Coleman oven, which isn’t available anyway. Anyone else have an idea?

I have the Coleman oven and used it to cook bisquits and potatos. It worked but seemed wasteful of fuel and dificult to keep at temperature if there is any wind. It requires a pan that fits in the oven in which to put your food.

 

I bought the Swedish Omnia oven and while I have had only a short while and  cooked only brownies, it cooked well. There are a lot of recipes for it. Its design includes the pan in which you put the food.

 

The silicone ring and mufffin pan make cleanup a lot easier. As pizzas don't cook well in a shallow bundt pan, they have recipies for converting pizza to calzone.

 

You will need two pair of OvGloves to save your fingers and hands. Everything on it gets hot.

 

I really got it for my wife to cook her favorite chicken wing recipe. Will be trying that soon.

The Coleman Oven I believe is still made, it’s just not currently available on Amazon. They can likely be found at your local Sporting Goods or Hardware store. My Bimart had a couple on the shelf last time I looked. They aren’t a bad idea, like a lot of camping stuff It’ an art to get the most out of them. A lot of people put a baking stone in the bottom to regulate the heat. Nice that they fold down.

If you’re a watcher of Craigslist or the like, Pyramid made what I thought was a good one. Once in a great while one shows up.

Good luck with your search.

We use a Sun Oven    https://www.sunoven.com  since our idea of winter camping is usually Baja.  We cook brownies, cakes, chickens, all kinds of stuff.  It's bulky though, but we put it in our trailer with my ARB Freezer and my roll-up boat and motor.

I use the Outback Oven - it packs down really small.

If you add a ceramic pizza stone to the Coleman camp oven it helps to regulate the heat and helps prevent hot spots that burn your bottoms (of muffins & bread). Also, the temp gauge on the front is not at all accurate.

I'm hoping to try the Omnia soon.

I've used the Backpackers Pantry which is no longer made, works well but is small.

And the Omnia oven with mixed results -

And just purchased the Bemco oven from the guy who makes them https://www.backpack....com/oven-specs but haven't tried it yet.

Another  possibility is the Volcano Grill. https://volcanogrills.com/

 

We have one but have not taken camping, primarily because it is a heavy duty unit with emphasis on heavy. We use it at home with the propane adapter and a large wok for stir frying for which task it is magnificent.

 

The grill can make use of charcoal or firewood as fuel, also. It also accommodates a 12” dutch oven inside the unit for baking or roasting.

 

I’ll have to try using it with my dutch oven during this Covid downtime.
