We use our convection oven at home for a few things, but we've never used it in the Rpod. Go figure. What we do at home is (usually) the same temperature, but for a shorter period of time. That may not be what you're looking for, but it is what we do. We have found that baked goods (cakes, cookies, muffins) work better on plain bake instead of convection. It seems to dry them out too much.

You may find these recipe adjustments usefull.

I know this is an old post and I watched some of the videos. I'm going to be camping by myself with electricity (something that's now rare for me) and I want to experiment wiht the convection oven.

 I can't for the life of me figure out how to use it.  I mean I get that if I want to cook one of the preset things I can push a series of buttons...but I don't cook most of those things. How do I set the convection oven to a specified temperature? Is there an equivalency chart somewhere? I want to cook salmon at 475. Any experts on this here?  Confused

If you are using it in convection mode that should be fine.

In the Facebook group, there's a "rite of passage" of baking cinnamon rolls in the convection microwave. It's a pretty flexible rite though: basically, you can bake anything to pass.

We recently purchased both of Janet Sadlack's Microwave-Convection Cookbooks. We haven cooked six recipes, they all turned out great.

I emailed her a question about one recipe, she responded in one day.

In the previous three seasons with our R-Pod we hadn't experimented with this feature, it really works good.

Thanks for your reply StephenH! Good advise on not spilling liquid on the glass turntable. I used the convection oven and baked some rolls at 350 while leaving the glass turntable in and everything turned out great.
