More often, now, you’ll see that RVs are coming equipped with a combination microwave/convection oven. Most of us haven’t really worked with one before and it can be confusing. A lot of people mention that they had their rig for a long time before even trying the convection option. Most of them tend to say that they should have done it sooner because now they love it.
The convection part of your microwave uses heat and a fan to cook your food. One of the first rules to pay attention to is reading the owner’s manual. Really, you should read it. There is a lot of information in it that will help you to get so much more use out of your convection oven if you read up on it first.
You should use the racks that come with it because your food will need to be suspended so heat can circulate around it. Regular cookware works just fine though some people recommend choosing shallow dishes instead of deeper ones.
Be sure to let the oven preheat. Most of the early mistakes we hear about is that one. They failed to preheat the oven first. Cooking times are about 20% faster and temperatures are somewhat lower, too. So read the manual and preheat the oven. When you do those things you are more than half way there.
Your food will cook through and you can achieve a crispy crust outside and maintain a soft interior, just like in your regular oven. Some people remark that they now use their regular RV oven for storage and use their convection oven solely for cooking the family meals.
