Thanks again for the suggestions, links and pictures. It looks like there are some options out there after all.

We have used the Backpackers Pantry Outback oven for about 15 years. It''s been great. However, I think they are now out of production, though there's one on eBay.

 

One of the best parts is the lid. If you get the Omnia, I suggest that if it does not fit your current frying pan, that you switch to a frying pan over which lid fits. We use the oven about once a month - the lid about every other day when traveling.

Well alright then!... Have bought one (with the red liner) and tried it out on our house gas stove top .... what the heck we went simple too test drive and made pigs in a blanket.... they came out great. We used a BBQ digital thermometer as the top has the right sized holes to keep track of the oven temp. 

 

What I would love to find is a list of meals folks have made... recipes not needed just what have you baked, warmed up or ????

I know it will really be handy for reheating leftovers but was looking for "ONE POT MEALS" (great book) for the Omnia. What is possible? Or what is stupid to try?! Baked apples?.....  soufflĂ©?

9" pizza. You have to hunt them down. Trader Joe's has them but TJs are not so plentiful in New England. Try Wegman's, Hannefords, Whole Foods, maybe even Aldi, or any upscale grocery. Our local New Seasons has 9" cornbread crust pizza. YUM! We often add more vegetables and/or Italian meats on top.

Great idea... There is a TJ's an hour from here and if I'am going on a trip could get a couple and freeze... Thanks

Keep the ideas coming!

"Well alright then!... Have bought one"

 

Bought one what? A number of items were suggested.

 

If it was the Omnia, we also bought one about two months ago. So far have done frittata, corn bread muffins, brownies, and cake. Looking forward to trying pizza and meatloaf. A bit of a learning curve but it is far superior to the Coleman Stovetop Oven we have. There is a Facebook group for Omnia owners. They are pretty active and post lots of recipes.

I'm officially confused now. How does one place a Trader Joes 9" pizza in an Omnia oven without blocking the heat flow?

Do their pizzas have a hole in the center? Do you cut a hole in the pizza to allow the heated air to reach the top of the oven? Do you burn the center and eat the raw surrounding parts? Inquiring minds, etc.

 

Without the hole, seems like the toppings and cheese would flow to the circumference and drip into the pan.

 

Looks like that there must be a hole in the pizza center prior to freezing it for the trip. 

 

Looking for enlightenment.
