Convection Oven can do all of that. I'll never have a regular propane oven since using a convection oven.

I never thought much of electric broilers though I do have years of experience with them, we use our RV oven and broiler several times a week. Practice, with any cooking method is the secret. Try a wood stove for some interesting cookery.

If I tried to fit a good loaf of sour dough under my broiler flame it would be like sticking a bagel in a regular bread toaster.

Broil on RV oven. I know this is an old post. This s the first motor home we have owned with oven. Too windy to BBQ outside & wanted to broil a couple of pork chops. Looked online and could not find much definitive info. We too were a little leery of the correct way to broil. Finally found the Atwood manual and it says "center the broiler pan under the broiler flame". Sweet! Worked great!

Thanks for the question and answers. I've not been happy with our oven, but it is better than no oven. I might buy a small toaster oven to take with us.

Next is to get the oven door to close properly, that will probably help remove some of my dissatisfaction with the oven.


Looking forward to new adventures and new friends.

DW has loved RV gas oven since we had our 1st Caveman Camper. She loves to bake, gas useage is not bad at all.

My gas oven had a broiler drawer under the oven. It was the bottom oven burner that was on, but it was above the food in the broiler drawer. The electric oven had a heating coil at the top that only heated if set on broil. Again, the heat from the top. I don't have an oven or broiler now, just a microwave and convection oven --- I do my chips & cheese in the microwave.
