    Which one is better and more efficient for "oven on the stove", with or without hole at the bottom?
    by 'oven on the stove' I mean a nearly air-tight metal box having door to put in or take out something into /out of it, put right on the fire of the regular kitchen stove.
    The stove is used to bake any suitable bakery food.
    So is it better with or without hole at the bottom through which the fire heat can directly

    Depends on what’s being make. It’s good for some things, bad for other things.

    Oh yes that’s a camping oven. Technically it functions just like a regular oven, so any regular baking sheet. Such a camping oven though is not insulated and you cannot control the temperature inside very well, so baking with it is more challenging. But that Coleman oven has been around for decades. It works.


    A perforated (holes) baking sheet is only used when you want to dry out a dough, like a pate a choux when you make eclairs. Or if you want your rolls to be crusty. Or you’re baking something you want to be crispy, like potatoes, then use a perforated baking sheet or A perforated baking mat over a regular baking sheet.


    The perforated baking sheet allows for water evaporation under the food. But that is not always desirable, as it can cause your baked goods to dry out. So when you use either a perforated baking sheet or a perforated baking mat on a regular baking sheet you have to make sure it is appropriate to what it is you’re baking.
