No oven? Figure you can’t bake? Actually, you can!
With a special pan — called an Omnia Stove Top Oven — you can have real baked goods over almost any type of stove burner — gas, electric, kerosene, alcohol or even a camp stove. And it can be used on a grill, too.
Now, admittedly, you’re not going to roast a turkey in one. The baking pan is a tube pan, fairly similar in size to a Bundt pan or angel food cake pan. It’s great for pizza, cakes, bread, quiche, casseroles and more — and I’ve even baked a cut up ham and chicken pieces in mine.
For years, people have tried to bake in Dutch ovens and pressure cookers, with less than ideal results. Often, food would be soggy as it was more steamed than baked, and frequently the bottom would burn while the top was still raw.
The difference with the Omnia is that it was designed from the beginning to bake. You’re not trying to use a pan designed for something else and then find “work arounds” for all the problems.
If you’ve heard enough and just want to get one, here’s the link. Otherwise, I’ve written several articles on the Omnia and they are listed below.
