Convection Oven Rack Question

I have a dumb question, but I figured I'd be better off asking rather than experimenting.

The metal turntable rack in our Hummingbird convection oven/microwave has red rubber caps on the feet.

Are these rubber feet just meant for protection of the glass turntable during transport or are they meant to be left on while cooking?

Thanks.

Tundra,

I have left mine on during cooking and have had no issues. I have used the oven every time we taken ours out (7 times since we bought it). I have a convection oven/microwave at the house and it had them on its rack too- never had an issue.

Thanks Paggy!

We haven't used ours yet but we may try it out during our upcoming camping trip.

I enjoy using our Coleman table top grill with a Lodge griddle so much we haven't ever turned the oven on, or tried the gas grill or stovetop. But we probably need to make sure it all works at some point.

We have a convection oven microwave in the house. We use it a lot. The little rubber feet stay on all the time.

Which Coleman stove are you using? We have a Weber Q we are using but would like a tabletop stove to use outside sometimes instead of the cooktop inside.

Using the mini-bottles. I've cooked breakfast and dinner for two trips and only used a little over one bottle. I thought about converting it to low pressure but honestly I kind of like the idea of having a few different fuel sources for cooking.

Plus my favorite tool of all time for getting fires started uses the same bottles.

Getting back to the OP's question, those rubber "feet" are meant to stay on all the time. They are there to keep the metal rack from grounding and sparking when using the microwave. The metal rack/shelf in a standard microwave oven is held in with plastic clips that do the same thing.

Another related question -

I noticed in the owner's manual that it says to remove the glass turntable when traveling.

I've been leaving our in the oven and I have noticed that it tends to jump a little off the turntable wheel track, but it doesn't go very far.

Not really sure there's anywhere much safer to store it in the TT.....I guess I could throw it in the middle of our bed, but that just seems to be extra work and something else to forget to do. I'm definitely not going to stress trying to find a place in the TV to store it every time we're in transit.....plus with dogs and 3 yr. old toddler, I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's wayyyy safer being left in the TT.

Seems to me that they would install an appliance that is up to the duty of traveling....you know, being in a "travel trailer" and all .

What is everyone else doing during travel with the glass turntable in their oven/microwave? Has anyone experienced a turntable or oven door glass get broken during transit?

The only other thing I can think of is throw a towel in the microwave and then lay the turntable in it.....again, just more work and clutter, but this may be the best solution if it is really a concern.

Thanks.

DW gets the kitchen ready for the road. She leaves the glass turntable in place, but puts two kitchen towels on top of the turntable.

Those two towels usually hang on the oven door but slide to the floor when on the road. She had to put the towels somewhere to keep them off the floor so the microwave seemed like a good place.

Yeah good point. I was just here thinking that we have a spare dish towel stored in the cabinet that could serve double duty, that way we don't need to add anything else to the TT.

Thanks.

We put a dishtowel down and tucked a little bit of it under the plate. We also use ours as a bread box, so we have a little weight on top of the glass plate while traveling.

The silicone feet are for (2) reasons. 1) they isolate the wire rack when the microwave is running to prevent the light show, 2) the provide a cushion for the glass turn table, and so it doesn't slide around.
We use our convection oven every trip one of the kitchen's best features, the microwave not a much.
We have a Weber Q100 that we had a hose made to use the propane plug on the camper and it works very well. We tried the same hose with our Blackstone 17" tabletop griddle and is can't supply enough propane to get it hot, but it does light.

We travel with it in place but we put our dish drainer ontop of it then put the wire rack in the cabinet. The small dish drainer fits snug enough to keep the glass from moving. Also we were told not to use the wire rack in the microwave. We haven't ever done it at home with our convection microwave. But the book says you can as long as the feet rubber feet are still on it and it doesn't come into contact with the oven wall. But Like I said we have never tried it.
