Baking in an RV Propane Oven

Baking in an RV Propane Oven

Everything I try to bake in the oven gets too brown on the bottom. Anyone have a tip on how to prevent that?

I’m sure others will have tips but do you have an oven thermometer? Sometimes the temp inside the oven is much different than what you have it set to. It sounds like yours is running hot.

Mine has always operated perfectly, but I’ve seen other posts advising to put an unglazed floor tile on the floor of the oven for more even heat distribution. You can get them really cheap at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Happy baking!

The last two tips should cure your problem.

If you can’t get an unglazed tile right away,try a piece of tin foil.

…or another cookie sheet on the lower shelf, if there is one, to distribute heat and prevent the black-bottoms.

We used the tile from Lowes and it broke after a short time but did help. I finally went on line and got a Pizza stone that a lot of people had recommended and it works pretty good. Thing is these aren’t real house ovens so they don’t do as well.

I used “air bake” cookie sheets and baking pans in my 5th wheel oven. Two layers with air between. Usually can find them at Walmart.

I don’t have oven in this rig. It has microwave/convection oven.

Rather than a Pizza Stone, you should try a few Fire Bricks that you can get at stores that sell wood stoves. I say a few because they vary in size, but are designed for extended periods of high temps. You probably want to cover about 50% of the bottom with them.

Have a good one.

If you ever run across someone throwing away a soapstone that is large enough you will have the golden fleese for your oven. Happy Trails.

So we found a square pizza stone for the oven, but soapstone would work better? Does it spread heat more evenly or what?

We had a 1 inch thick soapstone stone pizza/oven slab many years ago and yes it seems to conduct heat very very efficiently and more uniformly than a standard pizza stone slab. The major issue is that soapstone is much more expensive when compared to other pizza/oven stones. Many pizza stones are about 1/2 inch thick so 2 or three of the standard pizza stones may actually preform as good as a 1″ soapstone.
