Benefits of Convection Bake:
--Some foods cook up to 30% faster,
saving time and energy.
--No special pans or bakeware needed.
pad controls the Convection Bake feature.
Use the Convection Bake feature when cooking speed is desired. The oven
can be programmed for Convection baking at any temperature between 300 ° F
(149 ° C) to 550 ° F (288 ° C).
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat evenly and
continuously within the oven (See Figure 1). This improved heat distribution
allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking
results when using 2 or 3 racks at the same time. Breads and pastries brown
more evenly. Most foods cooked in a standard oven will cook faster and more
evenly with Convection Bake.

When using Convection Bake, decrease your normal cooking times as shown on page 37. Adjust the cook time for
desired aloneness as needed. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount and type of food to be cooked.
Cookies and biscuits 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.
Preheating is not necessary when cooking casseroles with Convection Bake.
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 1,3 and 5 (for 3 racks) and positions 2 and 4 (for 2 racks; See Fig. 2).
Cakes have better results when baked with the Cake pad in the Food Categories feature.
