Coleman Packaway Oven
About this deal
If your portable camp oven comes with specialised pots, make sure you use them. Most are designed to optimise cooking and cleanup for your specific unit.
Coen and KM, enjoy the bread. Just as you, here in Mali its hard to find whole wheat flour, so I am interested in all your recipies. Reply The most common form of stove is the traditional two-burner with a single, large cooking grate. But should you want a grill and stove combo, say, for cooking sausage and eggs, a hybrid option like the Camp Chef Rainier 2X is pretty appealing. Keep in mind that the grill portion takes up about 2/3 of the cooktop, which can swallow valuable space for fitting a large skillet or pot. Coleman’s Cascade 3-in-1 solves that problem with both burners and removable grill/griddle accessories. Similarly, stoves like the Camp Chef Explorer allow you to swap out accessory tops, including a barbecue box or pizza oven. Griddles are separate attachments that fit over top the burners, and just like at home, they’re great for cooking up items like pancakes or a grilled cheese.

The baking area is 26 x 12.5 inches (66 x 32 cm) and the total dimensions are 32 x 14 x 9 inches (81 x 36 x 23 cm). The oven weighs 41 lb (18.6 kg). The only issue is that you can’t really force it to stay at a certain temperature the whole time. So, even if you need to cook something at a really high temperature, you can’t just put it in the oven and then forget about it. You will have to monitor the temperature and open it up every now and then to let out some of that heat. Otherwise, it will stay at 600ºF, and that will just scorch anything inside. And it’s not meant to be used with outdoorgrills or open fire, so keep that in mind. It might weigh 25lbs less than the Camp Chef oven, but that doesn’t account for the weight of the other stove or burner you would also have to bring on the camping trip.
If you’re looking for a lightweight option to carry on the trails, you’ll want to take into account the weight of both the oven and the fuel source. If you’re planning to use the oven frequently during a hiking trip, it will require more fuel. In this case, a solar oven — which requires no external fuel — might be a good option if you’re planning to heat up pre-cooked foods while on the trails. This means that even though this oven is smaller, cheaper, and lighter, that won’t be the case in practice because you can’t use it on its own.

It’s really easy to use the oven. As long as you have it set up correctly, it’s easy to get to the temperature you need and regulate it. Sophisticated meals sometimes need sides like pasta or rice. Higher-end portable camp ovens often come with range-style burners to provide more cooking options or let you cook multiple dishes at once. Keep in mind, if you’re using heat in more than one area, your unit will consume more fuel than ovens using only one heat source. Portability This is one of those that need an external heat source. So you can use it with a wood-burning stove as the picture above shows. There are many such stoves from the same brand and you can see them here.
An alternate option for larger groups is to choose a stove that can be daisy-chained to another system. For example, the Jetboil Genesis Basecamp System and Eureka Ignite Plus can be linked to other Jetboil or Eureka models and connected to a single propane bottle. This allows you to increase cooking space without having to lug around a heavy freestanding stove. And on outings where you don’t need the added burner(s), simply leave one of the stoves behind. Two burners are sufficient for most campers Burner Power: BTUs Many solar ovens work well in the range of 150 to 200ºF but have difficulty climbing much higher. While some users are able to cook impressive dishes using solar ovens, these are usually best for heating foods that have been pre-cooked and simply require re-heating.The oven weighs 32 lb (14.5 kg) and the inner dimensions of the oven are (L x W x H) 11 x 16 x 9 inches (28 x 40.6 x 23 cm). So you realize this is a full-size oven, and it can provide the temperature in the range 250 – 400° F (121 – 204 C). Obviously, the first step is to decide about the type, with or without a burner. There are big differences in size and weight that are related to this issue, and with this also comes the question of functionality.
