Setting up and installation of your Road Chef oven is extremely simple. Once you’ve determined which method you will be using for your power supply, simply plug your Road Chef oven in, set your temperature gauge to the required temperature, turn the timer switch on for the time you will need to cook and after preheating the oven, put your food in. It really is that simple!
Here are a few other things for you to consider when setting your oven up:
1. Your oven comes with a set of ‘tie down’ clamps that can be used to securely attach it in your vehicle or the like. There are slots at the top and bottom of the oven allowing you to secure it to a shelf or roof of your vehicle. Simply insert the two prongs into the slots in the side of the oven and screw the brackets down. Periodically check the attachment to ensure it has not become loose.
2. The baking racks can slide in and out of the oven making it easier for you to reach your food. Be aware that the baking racks get very hot and appropriate hand protection should be used when handling them. The trays do not have a stopper on them, however they should ONLY be extended so that 1/3rd of the rack is out of the oven. If you extend it further than this the tray may buckle and/or fall out causing injury.
3. If the oven is ‘rattling’ when you are driving, when the oven and racks are cool, you can gently pinch down the arms on the sides of the racks so that they hold tightly onto the arms inside the oven.
4. The oven does not require any ventilation at the rear, sides, top or bottom and as such can safely be recessed.
5. The oven is insulated on 5 sides using fibreglass insulation. This should keep the outside temperature below 40°C although this can vary depending on the ambient temperature. The door is insulated through a double wall which only allows convection to heat it up.
Set your Road Chef oven to the desired temperature with 180°C the approximate maximum temperature. Most modern recipes and instructions provide cooking time for a fan forced oven. As the Road Chef is not fan forced it will take longer to create similar results. To achieve the best results, we suggest you preheat the oven for 20-30 minutes, especially if you are cooking with fresh ingredients. The Road Chef oven’s heat source is on the bottom of the inside of the oven and heat is transferred throughout the oven through conduction of the metal and convection in the air. We recommend that you do not over fill the oven, which reduces air flow and to rotate your food between shelves and on the shelves through out the cook to avoid hot spots. Food in baking trays and alfoil or similar coverings can be placed directly onto the bottom of the oven however you should check it regularly as it is easy to burn food using this method. If you are reheating or cooking frozen food we suggest that you rotate your food between shelves and on the shelves throughout the cook to avoid the outside burning before the middle is defrosted.
