Got one in the house, sitting on the counter taking up space. Used it for a short while and not been touched in years now.

I guess our camping cooking style is different than yours. We fix, pretty much everything, outside on a flat electric griddle. Only on rare occasions do we fix anything inside, other than pop-corn in the microwave oven.

Our gas oven in the camper works OK for us, for the few times we've used it. Took a while to figure out how to make it work best, but we can produce anything from it, baked even and not burnt.

For "toast" English Muffins, we just use a simple 2 slot toaster, or toast bread items over the fire pit.

Delonghi countertop convection toaster oven for us. Compact, works admirably. Preheat is only 2 or 3 minutes. We store it in the conventional oven when travelling.

We love convection ovens including the convection microwave in our rig, although there was a bit of a learning curve it does a great job with nearly everything we have tried. Had to use the operations manual the first few times to get the hang of it, many meals are already programmed into our unit and there is no preheating required. We also enjoy our toaster oven at home, we made sure to purchase one that had a convection feature, gets plenty of use particularly during summer months.

We found that our Sharp Carousel convention oven/microwave also slow to heat up. We found this Cuisinart Convection oven a great alternative to the larger Sharp. It has a small footprint but still large enough to bake a medium frozen pizza. It has heats evenly while baking. We use it daily. I don't remember the last time we used the oven part of our Sharp.

Get a GE with a combination microwave / convection setting. Faster cooking makes up for preheat. I can do an eight pound oven stuffer to perfection in under 2 hrs!

I use a NuWave induction cooktop outside for the majority of all my cooking. I also have a portable Camp Chef LP Stove/Oven for those times when I just can't live without a biscuit! Otherwise, the convection/microwave MIGHT get used to cook a baked potato and that usually bakes in about an hour. The gas stovetop inside the RV is only used to boil water....thinking very seriously about removing it and claiming that space as countertop. I might turn that gas cooktop into an outdoor kitchen to fry bacon and other stuff at our house instead of stinking up the kitchen!

Toaster oven? Haven't found a need for one. Had one at home and never used it. Opted for a regular pop-up toaster instead.....

If you don't want to spring for a GE Profile that will cook in combination mode (BTW my roast chicken done therein has a beautiful golden skin too!), try this. Cheaper, fast and works great. Yes. I have one of these too. There is a learning curve with both but well worth it. In this one I've done a great roast chicken with seasoned roast potato wedges on the side in short order! Just remember, a true convection oven is not and never will be as fast to cook as a microwave.

You store it in the propane oven? I store my Black & Decker toaster oven in there, but it's kind of on its last legs and could use replacing. But I didn't think any of the ones out there these days would fit in there--they seem to think bigger is better.

Which model Delonghi do you have?

lets remember that these counter top, etc. jobbies are only 120 volt 15/20 amp so they can't be compared with a 240 volt 30 amp or gas oven.

We don't like the microwave/convection combo, either. We carry a Black and Decker digital timer convection oven in one of the outside bins.

We also use one at home.
