I have decided to stop using my oven as storage for my cast iron pans and use it to cook in. I realize that the oven operates on 110 volt current, and there for cooks slower than a 220 volt oven. Can you give me ideas on things to cook in this oven? Things that don't take all day to cook. How long do you need to let it preheat? What about broiling? Thanks for your help.

I do all the cooking on board and use the oven all the time. It takes longer to warm to temperature that your at home oven, but once it's up, it cooks about the same time as at home. 350 degrees is the same whether you achieve it using 110 or 220.

Usually takes about 15 minutes to get up the 350. A tip for quicker warm up, turn off you battery charger and hot water heater on the breaker panel. Ice maker too if you have one. Just remember to turn them back on once up to temperature. A cold shower in the morning really sucks!!

I do chicken, roasts, nachos etc. basically the same as at home. If I'm cooking on the stove top or the BBQ ,i put the oven on low to heat the plates. Just did a small turkey in it a few weeks back.

Yes, the broiler work fine for steaks. Just turn your overhead fan on if you have one or it gets a bit smokey.

The princess will cook just like any oven. It may take a bit longer to get to temp but once its there cooking time is the same.
Before we switched to propane we cooked anything in it that we would cook at home. Bread, cakes roasts, whole chickens, etc.
We didn't broil meats in it or in the propane. Too messy. we use the BBQ.
Broiler works good for browning.
If your on doc power you may need to monitor your amps. With my 12.5kw it was never a problem.

Cheers,

Chris

I agree. My husband does the cooking, but I bake pies, baking powder biscuits, muffins. The Princess oven takes a while to heat up, so we replaced our microwave with a convection oven and what a difference that made! It heats up quickly (within 5 minutes up to 400 degrees) and I bake all of the aforementioned in it and they turn out great.

We used our oven on the weekend. It did not seem to take too long to get up to 350. We then did these individually wrapped in foil, with some spices, and slices of lemon. 10 to 12 minutes later, just beautiful.

Our biggest problem with use of the stove top is the coil burners just take so long to heat anything. Could there be a problem with the coils ? Or is there just deficient electrical power w 110v?

Swap the coils around to see if it is a connection vs the coil being bad.

Ours makes fabulous meals so heating isn't a problem.

What do you cook on at home? Gas, or electric? The 110vac burner are probably lower wattage (btu) than with a 220vac range.

If your stove top is the 3 burner like mine in my 3988 then one of the coils is a lower watt then the other two. The rear burner is the lower of the three on my stove top.

Correct, the rear burner maxes out at Medium, says so right on the dial.
