Hi all,

Having owned a Cobb oven for a couple of years, I am now totally satisfied with this product.

I have had pretty good success cooking roasts, poor success cooking steaks/chops.

Last week we purchased the Frying Pan ($39.99) and just tried cooking pizza. It works fantastic. We cooked 3 pizzas with 7 heat beads and still have enough heat for many more.

Regards
Phil P

Phil p,
Try inverting the holder for the heat beads, so that they are placed on the top and closer to the frying pan.

This gives more heat.

CAn't help smiling at all the new "gadgets" that newbys get sucked into buying. I have used a frying pan and camp oven over hot coals for many years. It's not hard to light a fire you know and my gear cost a fraction of the fancy stuff. There's even a "cooker" on the market that actually requires you to cook the food before putting it into the "cooker" which just keeps it warm!! What'll they think of next? Probably someone will try putting water in bottles and selling it for a couple of dollars for half a litre ..... nah noone would fall for that when you can get it out of a tap.

Andrew,

You seem to know all about them mate!
Can it be that you are a little envious of those who can afford something different???

There is something to be said sometimes for cooking with 7 head beads instead of half a tree trunk!!!

As someone once said "A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing".

You happily keep burning the bush, Andrew.

Try cooking a tender moist roast in your camp oven and then follow it off by some bread and buter pudding for dessert, with a hand full of heat beads you got out of a bag not cut down from some tree?

Im glad I got sucked into buying one of these gadgets as it works great.

Problem is now days most places we go (National parks etc) you can't light fires. Hope you carry a gas cooker as well as the fry pan....

Cheers, John.

And as for the misunderstood allusion to the dreampot - try puting a roast in your camp oven, heating it up then putting it in your wagon for 5 hours and eating it. These "gadgets" do different things for different people, no need to slag off products you don't understand. The Cobb has won so many awards, i don't have one but in the inceasing realm of fire bans in national parks, i am heading towards one. I have seen what they can do for a roast chicken and it came out the same as a weber which costs a helluva lot more.
