Campfire reflector ovens are designed to make cooking by campfire as easy as cooking at home. While they are designed to offer consistent cooking, recipes may need to be tweaked.
Reflector ovens are designed to absorb the heat given off by a campfire. Their dark color is designed to absorb as much heat at possible, and their metallic design helps regulate heat, preventing the oven from becoming too hot.
While cooking times should be similar to cooking at home, users must learn how long it takes for the oven to reach the appropriate temperature. In addition, different fires produce different amounts of heat, so learning to build a consistent fire or adjust cooking times is necessary.
