I am like others... At home I use my oven frequently. I would expect that as a feature of any home I would buy, to live in.

On vacation I rarely use an oven. Occasionally I stay someplace with one, and use it, but I wouldn't not stay in a rental because it was missing an oven. I do agree I would expect the cooking room of such a rental to be labeled a "kitchenette". Even if it had the best toaster oven on the planet on the counter.

I would tend to agree, at least to the extent that presently available portable ovens leave some things to be desired. On a day-to-day basis, I find a conventional oven a nice convenience. I certainly could get by w/o one, and do a very respectable job, but really don't care to.

WRT "How Necessary is That Conventional Oven", I submit that it is certainly very possible and plausible to prepare very excellent baked meals w/o one.
