Has anyone seen one of these, before? How neat this is! And reasonable, as well ... it's now on my 'wish list'! I in NO WAY have anything at all to do with Coleman .... I just think this is so neat! And it folds flat!
Coleman Portable Camp Oven
 
Made of smooth, aluminized steel that folds flat for easy portability, Coleman's Camp Oven is perfect for baking and keeping foods warm while exploring the great outdoors.* Great for baking muffins, potatoes, pies and more as well as heating up cans, pot pies and frozen entrees. Comes with an adjustable steel bake rack and an easy-to-read thermometer.
*The Coleman Portable Camp Oven requires a camp stove as the source for its heat:
  • 1. Center the Coleman Portable Camp Oven over the master burner of your camp stove.
  • 2. Preheat the oven slowly and allow enough time for the desired baking temperature to become stabilized.
  • 3. Place foods, cans or other suitable products in the center portion of the oven and let heat.

OK, I give up. Do you know its manufacturer? I would like something I could put on the grate of a low burning wood fire pit. Does this work for that purpose? I am intrigued. Thanks

Doesn't it need a lot of propane if you would want to bake bread on a regular basis?

I thought of buying one too, but then thought it must take a lot of propane to bake bread in a 350/400 degree oven for an hour or two, every other day.

MajDad, have you used yours before. How long does one bottle last?

I picked one of these up for hurricane season, and just left it on the shelf. When I started prepping in earnest, I did a dry run with muffins and bread. Worked great, but search around for smalll muffin and bread pans. If they are too big, you get poor circulation and uneven cooking. Also, if you go to the home center and buy a cheap unglazed terra cotta tile, and have them cut it down to 10.5 x 10.5 inches, it will fit on the bottom of the oven, give you more consistent and even heat. Finally, there are refill adapters available fairly cheap that allow yopu to refill the 1 lb bottles from the typical 20lb BBQ tank. This cuts the cost of the small bottles to about .45 cents. I've got 2 20 lb tanks and a 40 lb tank. I'll be cooking for a long time. There are also hoses which will connect the camp stove to a 20lb tank so you dont even have to worry about filling the little one. I got the refill adapter for the gas lanterns, but plan on running the stove right off the 20 pounder. Costs work out about like this: 20 one pound bottles: $65.00 on sale. Refill for one 20 lb tank: $11.00 at my local fruit stand.

You've all talked me into getting one!  Walmart?? I'll have to look. Geeze ... Walmart is making a bundle off of all of us!  I Love the refill idea on the little bottles ... that would be good for travel purposes. Can't believe the difference in multiple bottles vs one tank.  That would be one of the 'last run' items.  I dont' think that a lot of people would be going after propane if they haven't prepared ... they'd be thinking of immediate needs: food/water/gas, maybe.  -k  ps. got my double burner stove tonight!  Yipee!! (and it's not even my birthday ... just an extremely busy newsday that made me real nervous!)

They are made by Coleman, and i got mine for 29.99.  I thought it would work on top of my porcelain wood stove, but it didn't quite get hot enough. works well on propane though!!

Ok, I am now really confused. I thought ReadyMom said:
"I in NO WAY have anything at all to do with Coleman"
I read that to mean she isn't buying anything by Coleman. Did I miss something here? I had an old Coleman stove about20 years ago and cooked with it over a grilled open fire pit. It seemed to work. Yes, I was concerned about the amount of propane to bake bread daily. That is why I was looking for something to go over an open fire. Rocky

Sorry Rocky .... I meant I'm not plugging it cause I'm making $$$ off of it! LOL! Must have been tired during that post, too!  I just thought it was so neat .... first I had seen one.  Much better than making a solar oven ... and relatively inexpensive and it folds FLAT! We have electric EVERYTHING in our house, so this will be great to keep on hand.  And with our kids being teen age, they are getting the age, where they'll be able to use them, on outings in the next few years, as they get older, if they choose.  Worth getting and keeping on hand.  Especially since they are a reputable brand that seems to stand the test of time!-k

I picked up one of the folding camp ovens but have never used mine yet either. We have an old gas countertop range and tiny gas wall oven. The oven won't work if the electricity is out. I bought ours from amazon.com with free shipping. Think I paid about $32 for it which would make it roughly the same as the Walmart price after tax.

I figured I might be able to bake in the camp oven on the gas range burners. We picked up a used dual fuel 2 burner camp stove too so hopefully it will work on either of them.

I'm planning to try the windshield shade solar cooker for some things like beans that need to cook forever but hope we continue to have natural gas supply for making coffee and things indoors.

Some one was looking for a solar charging unit for their batteries.  Try this
 
 
On the over, it will run for 4 hours at 500 degrees on one bottle or 5 hours at 375.  I only intend to bake bread every other day and I have 48 bottles of gas  for a total of 192 days of cooking time.
 
I have 2 Coleman Camp Stoves and have included the Drip coffee maker in the mix.  I have 6 20 bottles of bulk propane.  Added a splitter tree and will be able to run both stoves off of one tank at the same time. 
 
I am looking at a camping sink with water on gravity feed running the waste water into the garden. 
 
Get that done and the wife will have a 4 burner cooking set up with separate oven and a sink for the dishes .
 
I have the solar lanterns so we should be good for cooking with.

0knut.  Soak your beans overnight and then use a pressure cooker.  The beans should cook in about 30 minutes.

Super idea! I'll have to get that oven. I've been concerned about the solar oven baking bread properly. This oven would be just what I need. I have a hundred pound and four 20 pound propane tanks.

I'm actually looking for a small stove that can be used while sitting on a grill above a low burning camp fire (wood coa;s, not charcoal). I think the Coleman oven is probably designed to be used with their camping stove.

Thanks MAJDAD!
I rediscovered my small pressure cooker just 2 days ago when digging through a deep cabinet to give some huge stockpots to a friend.
It was back behind them and I thought it had been lost over the years. I'll put it to work, it's been ages since I've used it.

Just got back from WalMart. I picked up the oven and noticed that the drip coffee setup was on sale for $25, marked down from $37. Of course I had to buy it also.
 
Coleman oven - $27
Coleman drip coffee maker - $25
Fresh coffee and cinnamon rolls when the 'lights go out' - PRICELESS! Wink
