The oven is a vital kitchen appliance and perhaps one of the most used, but what if you could find an oven that was more efficient and cooked your food better? There is one out there – a convection oven. To check out some different models for yourself, visit your nearest kitchen
or appliance supplier.
About Convection Ovens
A convection oven is a type of oven that uses internal fans to evenly circulate the hot air inside the oven. The use of fans means that the temperature inside the oven will be the same everywhere – at the top, the bottom, in between the racks and so forth. All “hot spots” are eliminated. Convection ovens are generally more expensive than a standard oven but they have many more advantages, justifying the extra expense. Both electric and gas ovens can be convection.
Advantages of a Convection Oven
The major advantage of a convection oven is the way that it circulates air evenly, eliminating hot spots. This means that your food will cook faster at a lower temperature. You’ll also get a better result from cooking! No more burnt bottoms and barely browned tops! Convection ovens are more efficient than standard ovens as they cook food faster. This means that you don’t have to have your oven on for such a long period of time, saving you money on your electricity or gas bills. Plus, you won’t have to heat up your kitchen as much when making dinner!
Convection ovens are just better at cooking full stop. The action of the hot air flowing around the food means that you can get more flavour from them, which is especially true of meat as the convection action helps to seal in the juices. Also, baked goods such as cakes, muffins and pies are more evenly browned across the tops no matter where they are placed. You can also cook more food at the same time as you have even heat on all the cooking racks. You can fill the oven without worrying about having to rotate the food.
