space between cookware for proper air circulation.

bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temper-
ature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some

bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and
For batter and dough-based baked goods such as
cakes, pastries, and breads, use the convection
