In a convection oven, the fan-circulated hot air continually
distributes heat more evenly than the natural movement of air in a
standard thermal oven. This movement of hot air helps maintain a
consistent temperature throughout the oven, cooking foods more
evenly, crisping surfaces while sealing in moisture and yielding
crustier breads.
Most foods can be cooked by lowering cooking temperatures
25°F to 50°F (14°C to 28°C), and cooking time can be shortened
by as much as 30 percent, especially for large turkeys and roasts.

Convection baking can be used for baking delicate cakes and
pastries, as well as foods on multiple racks. It is helpful to
stagger items on the racks to allow a more even flow of heat. If
the oven is full, extra cooking time may be needed.
When cooking an oven meal with several different types of foods,

be sure to select recipes that require similar temperatures.
Cookware should sit in the oven with at least 1" (2.5 cm) of space
between the cookware and the sides of the oven.

Convection Cooking

(on some models)
It is important not to cover foods with lids or aluminum foil so
that surface areas remain exposed to the circulating air,
allowing browning and crisping.
Keep heat loss to a minimum by opening the oven door only
when necessary.
Choose cookie sheets without sides and roasting pans with
lower sides to allow air to move freely around the food.
Test baked goods for doneness a few minutes before the
minimum cooking time with a method such as using a
toothpick.
WARNING
Burn Hazard
Use a meat thermometer or the temperature probe (on some
models) to determine the doneness of meats and poultry.
