Helpful Elements

Convection cooking: This method uses a fan or multiple fans that circulate hot air throughout the oven, reducing cooking time and hot spots. There are two types: those with heating elements on top and bottom, and those with a concealed rear heating element.

Quick tip: The hot circulated air in a convection oven cooks foods faster than conventional radiant heat. Check foods 10 to 15 minutes sooner than you would in a regular oven. Most higher-end convection ovens have preprogrammed options to make the necessary time and temperature calculations for you.

Halogen lighting: Bright halogen bulbs illuminate the oven’s interior more clearly, giving the cook a better view of foods.
