Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Cookware/Bakeware


Friends:

We just purchased a new 5th wheel with a Sharp microwave/convection oven. I have never used one before but am excited about the possibilities. The manual says it if fine to use metal or aluminum foil pans for convection or combination cooking but I'm wondering if it might make sense to go with mostly silicone bakeware since it would work with the oven, the microwave and convection cooking and also be lightweight. I have some inexpensive silicone pieces that I don't like too well. I have been reading about some higher-end silicone products called ORCA that seem to get good reviews.  Has anyone seen or used this bakeware?  Or do you have other suggestions?  Many thanks.

We don't currently have a convection oven in the RV, but do have one in the house.  I LOVE it!  Use it just like you would any other oven, just adjust either the cooking time or temperature down a little and keep checking till you figure out what works for what dishes.  Generally I adjust the temp down 25 degrees for things like pot roast and adjust the time down 5 min for baking things like cookies.

As far as the silicone bakeware, I like the ones I have with one exception.  They are not the easiest to get REALLY clean without a dishwasher.  If you are going to use them I strongly recommend going with the more expensive, better quality ones.  I saw some nice sets on Overstock.com the other day.  I'm thinking about getting some silicone muffin cups to use instead of the paper ones.  They seem pretty cool.

Silicon bakeware can be had for reasonable prices at outlet malls so you can check the quality and save money. We roll ours up and store them in plastic freezer bags.
Ckerr: Diane loves the silicon muffin cups as small serving bowls, like for dipping and condiments like sour cream. They come in their own storage container.

That's a great idea about using the silicon muffin cups for serving pieces.  They would make cute ice cream cups too.  Tell Joyce thanks for the idea Bill!
