I did chocolate chip cookies, but it was in an RV...doesn't help ya much, I know. I've heard good things about the Costco type ovens, though, for basic baking.

I have had this one a few years. People seem surprised when they smell pizza. Good as a toaster oven. Haven't actually tried to bake anything.
Less than a hundred bucks.

It takes some practice and watching, but we made fresh biscuits and sweet rolls. We cheated and used the prepackaged ones because making fresh on the playa would take too much prep and clean up. we may make dough to take. Larry has built a nice cabinet for it. So far so good.
Who has tried baking bread on the playa? Cookies? Cakes?
