So I’m struggling with a couple of things on using the convection microwave oven. I’ve read on other RV forums that some ovens require that you remove the glass turntable when using the convection oven as it’s not rated for the high heat. When looking at the glass turntable in my oven it’s stamped with a label that says microwave use only. 
I downloaded the manual for my model oven and it contradicts this by saying to use the turntable for all cooking. In addition, if I were to remove the turntable the legs on the metal rack used with convection cooking really done have a flat surface to set on.
Am I ok leaving the glass turntable in the oven when convection cooking?
Also, is the metal rack with plastic end caps able to be used when grilling, or would the plastic melt.

I've left the glass turntable in while using cooking with the Convection Oven part of this device. The glass turntable has survived just fine. However, I would not spill liquids on as that sudden temperature change might risk breaking the glass. Now for the ends on the legs, they are silicone rubber and can take the convection heat. I'm not sure about the grilling part though.When I have used them, they tend to pop off. That may be due to trapped air expanding and pushing them off.

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.

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.

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.

Can you place a metal pan in the convection oven?

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

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
