1. How the Omnia oven works
1. How does the Omnia oven work?
This extra mini-oven has been specially designed for nomadic meals when camping, bivouacking and on road trips. Its operation is simple and very efficient. It is composed of three parts: a stainless steel base , a mold and an aluminum lid . These three parts combine to create the perfect appliance for cooking all kinds of food on road trips.
- The base of the oven, in direct contact with the heat source. It distributes the heat evenly without the food coming into direct contact with the flames.
- The mold, which holds the food. The central chimney raises the heat to diffuse it on the upper part of the food.
- The lid, placed above the mold, makes it possible to maintain an optimal temperature and to diffuse the heat which rises through the chimney. The oven cover has a central handle to handle it and holes to create ventilation.
2. Where and how to use the Omnia oven?
We use this portable oven both indoors and outdoors. This oven is therefore suitable for all seasons! The Omnia oven is also used like a traditional oven, it does not require any special installation.
It can be used on all types of fire (stoves, gas stove, electric plates) except on induction plates. It is placed on a stove or in the center of a hob.
Cooking times are more or less the same between a traditional oven and the Omnia oven. It is also important to take into account the differences between cooking systems. The Omnia thermometer will help you adjust cooking times and power.
Attention, if the Omnia oven is easy to use, it remains however a device which gives off a strong heat. It is then necessary to ensure its stability in order to avoid any risk of incident.
3. Accessories for optimal use of the oven
Many Omnia accessories are available to complete the auxiliary oven and to be able to diversify the preparations.
1) Silicone molds
The Omnia silicone mold is our essential to prevent food from sticking to the mold (to avoid spending 30 minutes scratching the dish). :) Silicone molds are perfect for all your preparations . They will also ensure that the food is not in direct contact with the aluminum wall of the oven.
Among the various silicone molds, Omnia offers a muffin pan which makes it easy to prepare 6 cupcakes in the oven. Perfect for a snack or, in a savory version, for an aperitif! ;) And for large preparations, a set of two molds is available.
The little trick: put the silicone mold in the dish BEFORE putting the food in it. This will prevent your liquid preparation from falling into the hole.
