Review: Omnia Oven

The Omnia Stovetop Oven offers a logical solution to a common problem in camp cooking. If you’ve ever used a camp stove, you know that the heat distribution is frustratingly uneven, with a scorching-hot flame in the center and no heat around the edges. The Omnia Oven is a donut-shaped pan, like one you’d use to bake a Bundt cake, with circular lid that covers the entire pan. This creates a more even heat distribution in two ways: first by removing the center that’s susceptible to burning, and second by distributing the heat rising up through the center toward the edges underneath the lid.

It works like a charm, lending itself to recipes you’d normally only cook at home—pasta bakes, roasted potatoes, cinnamon rolls, and more. Plus, you can buy special-made foil baking dishes that fit inside the oven to prep meals ahead of time. Or, just prep your meal in the pan and cover with foil.
