Furrion Oven

I am interested in others results and opinion with the new Furrion oven.

Pros: the electronic ignition and no pilot light is a great addition.

Cons: the lack of a broiler and poorer temperature control are detractors. When you set a temp via the knob and let the oven warm, the digital temp display rarely matches what was set. You can then change the knob to get the display of the temp to match what you want but we don't have real confidence it is actually displaying the actual oven temp. Our results actually baking things are mixed.

We don't like the oven. Temp control is a joke, noisily fan that runs the whole time the oven is on

We actually much prefer the Furrion as compared to .....that we have had.
Glass oven door, bigger capacity, electronic ignition and overall good looks.
The temp control certainly could be better but all one needs to go is add a store bought oven thermometer to compare how far out the actual temp display is and you are away.

You're right is is a good looking oven and easy to lite. But, why does the noisy fan have to run the whole time the oven is on!!!!

Compared to the older ovens, this one is great. The temp control on the old ones were questionable too. Not having to get on my knees to light the pilot is worth any issues with the temp control.

Never used the one in the old rig. Use this one frequently and like it.

we love ours, can actually cook a decent frozen pizza and I don't have to stand on my head with the lighter while the wife holds the "pilot" knob down, as far as the fan, you need to run a vent fan anyway when the oven is lit

And all of you are happy with the noisy fan in the oven that runs the whole time the oven is on. I'm not talking about the exhaust fan

Yes, while it is on the noisy side we find there are more positive improvements that outweigh a little fan noise. Heck our roof vent fan almost makes as much noise.
But that is just us.

Maybe after you use it more you will become familiar with it...we did. Doesn't bother us at all now and we don't find it excessively loud. As others have said the pros outweigh the cons of the new oven.
