Omnia oven

Iíve just been reading an article in a magazine where the owner of a camper van (sorry Roger Iím washing my mouth out) decided against an oven in favour of an Omnia pan. Reading the blurb on the JustKampers site it reads well, possibly a useful bit of kit particularly if youíre off grid.
Has anyone on here got one, seen one in use or even heard anything for or against?

I think I can see how it works, but I'm not sure. Do you think you cook in both of the containers. https://www.justkampers.com/camper-van-m...e-top-oven.html

From what I can understand you cook in the middle bit although Iím not sure then what the purpose of the bottom bit is. Thatís why I was hoping someone on here was an Omnia expert. Thereís plenty of us Remoska aficionados about but weíre thinking of going off grid if the site charges for electric become prohibitive and then Iíd be Remoska less 😲 thought the Omnia might do the job as an alternative.

I keep looking at the Omnia ovens too (despite having a Cobb BBQ, Cadac Safari Chef, Remoska, and Lotus Grill). There is lots of info and videos on You Tube to give you a better idea of what they are all about. I would buy one, but think Mrs W would then make me live permanently in my 530 with all the camping cookers.

I have a friend who has one. I've asked her what she thinks and I'll get back with her ideas. It's cheaper than a Remoska but it is a funny shape. I think you have to use the 3 elements all the time and just cook in the doughnut.

Thanks Islay, it will be good to hear from someone who has actually got one. If it needs all 3 burners that doesnít sound like a very fuel efficient option.

Robbie, Iíll have a look at YouTube. We only have the Remoska at the moment and I donít really want to carry more kit if it wonít get used. We leave our bed made up in our 530 which means we lose two areas of storage so travel light.

Hi Julie, search Ominia oven on Amazon. There over 1000 rave reviews from happy owners. Based on all that owner feed back it sounds like a great bit of light weight cooking kit. I actually like the idea of cooking in the doughnut. Do a nice stew or roast and then bring the hot meal to the table and serve. It also looks much smaller in overall bulk than all the other choices for cooking in. Love the red lid too.

Julie, not three burners but the base, the doughnut and the lid! My friend hasn't replied yet. She's about to go into labour so we may have to be patient LOL

Under the circumstances her delay in replying is acceptable. She may just have her mind on other things 😁

She's not yet in labour LOL She says :
She's very happy with it. There's quite a learning curve. Forget roasting chicken or cooking pizzas, but gratins, lasagnes, bread, cakes etc are all very successful.

Going back umpteen years I bought a traditional double skillet at one of the camping shows as an oven substitute, the Omnia appears to be a re-invention/development of it. The double skillet does have the advantage of "no hole in the middle" cooking and also gives optional use of the pans as frying pans or shallow saucepans. The original company that supplied them went out of business but they appear to be available again, worth considering as an alternative. My double skillet is still providing good service along with an early model Remoska both of which have survived extensive use on a yacht as well as campervan/caravan duty. An internet search for "double skillet cooking" should take you to more information.

Thanks Islay, the rocket stove isnít so much of an option. It means cooking outside which is weather dependant, also youíd need to carry the fuel, wood or coal, with you. The other is a possibility although I think the Omnia would be more space efficient. More ideas to ponder though, thereís too many options when you start looking into it.

A lot of people are using the remoska with solar power.
