Omnia Stovetop Oven

It seems like conventional ovens have pretty much disappeared from RVs. Yes, you can have a convection microwave, or a counter-top oven, but they all require electricity to operate and take up a lot of space.

Years ago, I removed my old RV oven and converted the space into a cabinet for storage and put in a 2-burner gas cooktop. It does the job, but sometimes you want to bake some biscuits or a casserole, and there’s just no way to do it without an oven. Or, is there?

My buddy, Sky Renfro #78690, recently discovered an intriguing gadget, the Omnia Oven.

Made in Sweden, it’s quite simply an oven that is designed to bake on any type of burner: gas, electric, kerosene, camp stove and even on a grill. It’s great for boondocking! (Note: does not work on induction cooktops)

It’s compact, easy to use and easy to clean. In fact, the concept and engineering behind it are outstanding and, with a few accessories, such as silicone baking pans and racks, the sky’s the limit!

I contacted the folks at Omnia, and they kindly sent me the complete Omnia mega kit.

This includes the oven, a couple silicone baking pans and a wire rack that fit inside the doughnut-shaped oven, and a neat carrying/storage case that everything fits into nicely. I also received an apron, some potholders and a trivet, the optional thermometer, an insulated carrying case for transporting the oven with hot food inside, foil pans and a cookbook. Wow!

OK, so it’s nifty and well accessorized, but can it cook? Oh, Yeah! I did a quick skim through the instructions and grabbed a can of Pillsbury Grands biscuits out of the fridge. In the RV kitchen, I preheated the oven on the stovetop for a few minutes, put a piece of parchment paper on the rack and placed six biscuits around the circular cooking area. About 15 minutes later, I had yummy hot biscuits! I can’t wait to try some of my favorite casserole recipes and potato dishes in this thing. Oh, and baked potatoes! Sure, you can microwave them, but I think they are just better when cooked in an oven.
