Definitely worth it. There are times we want to cook one thing at 350 and another at 425 simultaneously. Regular oven plus micro/convection lets us do that. Cooking in convection only slightly different than regular oven.

I’ve had zero luck with the convection side of the microwave. Unless you’ve used convection before, it seems to me that it will take a lot of experimenting to figure it out.

If it's all you have and your fulltime you read all you can about cooking with convection then find some simple recipes. The one thing I don't care for is how long it takes it to get up to temp.

I love my micro/convection combo. I use both every day.

I have a Panasonic microwave/convection oven and it works great. Cooked a 13.5 pound turkey in it for Thanksgiving. Mine comes up to temp quickly.

When we bought our fulltiming rig 14 years ago, it only had a convection microwave. I didn't think we would survive.

Here's the scoop. A convection oven is a regular electric oven with a fan. That's it folks. Because the fan circulates the hot air around the food, it may not take as much time to cook as the other. And you just have to become familiar with your oven. With mine, I set the dish for the minimum time. If it says 30-35 minutes, I use 30. That's it. . . comes out perfect every time. Nothing to fear. It is a REGULAR ELECTRIC OVEN WITH A FAN.

It's the oven bakeries have used forever because it bakes cakes more evenly, etc.

The only time I wait a little longer to preheat is if it is 400 degrees plus. Sometimes, I use 375 if I don't want to wait for preheat. . . like if I'm heating up french fries or something like that.

The other thing I learned early on. . . If the oven is hot from baking something and I have something else to zap in the microwave, you can't use paper or plastic because it's too hot. So I bought a couple silicone pans. That way if I have a side dish to heat up after my oven dish is done, I drop the food in the silicone and zap away. Perfect solution!

While I thought initially I had to have an RV oven, I do not miss it. The ones I had used were far less efficient and always burned stuff. Love my convection.

The things that I try to bake in the convection oven don't rise, what's up with that?

Been using the same Sharp Carousel combo unit for 18 years.

After saying this, it will probably break next week

Only thing you need to "figure out" is temperature and time on our Convection Microwave.

When we upgraded our rig it came with a GE Profile convection microwave. Easy to use, Select Convection bake, enter temp. then press start. When desired time is reached the microwave beeps. Put food in and set time.....That's it.
Our convection has whats called an Offset. You enter standard temp/time and the offset makes the adjustment for Convection cooking.

Have not used the gas oven for 4 years
