I know this maybe a silly question but can I use my camp oven on the stove top. As you know some places do not allow open fires and I am trying to cut down on the amount of pots and pans I take.

Exactly what sort of a stove are you talking about
In a van or what.
Bit hard to advise if the facts arent known


Would think that weight is the governing factor in what to take rather than the quantity.

The short answer is YES. You can use it on a stove top. Especially for dishes that don't require heat on the lid too much, ie bread, scones etc. But no probs with soups, stews, casseroles and the like.

Enjoy.

yes, i have done some nice roasts in the bedorie(spelling).I use a trivet in it to keep the food off the heat, just useing a gas ring or sitting the pot on a heat source. MEAT,COOK,EAT.

My wife often cooks spaghetti sauce in the camp oven at home. It's part of the kitchen cookware and taken outside or away when needed.

They are great to use on the stove top. I did lamb shanks the other night and they were great. Just be careful with the temperature and stir every 1/2 hour so you dont burn on the bottom.

Gday,
You can use it any where you want. Its just a cast iron pot with a lid.
The only thing I wouldnt do again in a camp oven is boil Yabbies! Took ages to get the taste out.

Did a roast chicken a week or so ago on coleman dual fuel stove.
Just kept the heat fairly low, and the chicken cooked in the camp oven beautifully.
You can put a folded cloth on the lid to insulate it a little bit, just watch the edges don't catch alight.
cheers

When the weather has been sour we have often cooked in the camp oven on the van gas stove with great results. Plus the stove heat has helped keep the van warm. Double bunger.
We have even done roast lamb, you just do it slower and it comes out fine. Do not lift lid until it is time to put the veges in this way the heat stays contained.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Used it in the over at home a few times to cook a roast. As mentioned above, it's just a cast iron pot.

I cooked one of the best Xmas lunches we have had last year and lined up 3 camp ovens and put them in the BBQ, pulled down the lid and away it went. Checked once to turn the vegies over and everyone said how good it tasted.

if doing a roast,put the lid on another burner and get it very hot befor placing it back on top of the camp oven,keep re-heating as necessary.
