try a multi cooker if on ehu.  Also if using a frying pan use spray on oil as you only need a very small bit (but do need a good non stick pan) it avoids that fried smell

I used the microwave inside the van last weekend- great. Minimal food smells if at all. May also get a halogen oven as they seem almost made for campervan use. Its " open pan " cooking that is the culprit- whether its a pan or frying pan ....

I use a Remoska Electric Pan,its brilliant, its a bit like a mini oven pan

It roast a lovely chicken with pototos around it, does brilliant Baked Potatoes.

Toasted cheeds sandwiches, Casseroles, anything really and is suppose to be cheaper to run than a light bulb!

It keeps all the smells in while cooking

The Cook's Candles worked for me when I rented a small cottage, so perhaps they'd work in your camper.

Id love a Remoska but at over 100.00 dont think so......maybe a halogen oven which seems just as usable and a lot cheaper...

Sorry Cath, I haven't been back on here recently.

The Cook's Candles are about twice the size of a tea light and they come in pale green tins and they absorb cooking smells. Waitrose (amongst other places) sells them.  I think there are various other types too, to absorb cigarette smoke etc but I haven't tried them.

That's probably not much help really is it?  I'll check on the tin when I get home!

Cooks Candles are made by Price and cost 3.75.  They last for ages though.

We like the idea of the Halogen Oven  definitely worth a go with this.

No idea whether this will stop the smells but it might reduce the moisture. Provided you have an electric hook up - you can get fairly small de-humidifiers for around the 35 mark. I'm guessing the moisture does not help.

We use a slightly larger one in our flat to help dry washing and keep condensation at bay. Not the most environmentally friendly in terms of energy use, but it does give off a little warmth at the same time, which can be useful. One of the best things we've bought.
