This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best culinary results when baking with multiple
pans and racks. Multiple rack baking may slightly increase cook time for some foods but the
overall result is time saved. Most foods cooked in a standard oven will cook faster and more evenly
with Convection Bake. Convection baking uses the three elements and a fan to circulate the oven's
heat evenly and continuously within the oven. The temperature probe can be used in this cooking
mode. The oven can be programmed for Convection baking at any temperature between 170°F
to 550°F with a default temperature of 350°F.
Convection Baking Tips:
Always preheat your oven before using the Convection Bake mode.
If your recipe cooking temperature has already been converted for convection baking there is
no need to reduce your oven temperature. If your recipe has not had the temperature
converted for convection baking you can easily reduce using the Convection Convert feature.
Please see Convection Convert section on next page for further instruction on temperature
Use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection baking when using this mode. With
single rack convection baking the some foods may have as much as a 25% reduction in cook
time, check food at minimum time. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount and
type of food to be cooked.
When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place oven rack in position 3 or 4. If cooking
on multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 2 and 6 or 1, 4 and 7.
Most bakeries (except cakes) should be baked on pans with no sides or very low sides to allow
heated air to circulate around the food.
Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.
