In today’s hurry up and get it done world, spending a huge amount of time waiting on something to cook is not a high priority. That’s where countertop convection ovens can make a huge difference in the operation of your kitchen.
A convection oven can cut cooking time by up to 25 percent. It can cook at a higher temperature, as much as 30 percent higher than a standard radiant oven.
A good convection oven cannot only cook your food faster and more thoroughly, but it can also perform a variety of cooking methods, from roasting to just keeping it warm.
What is a convection oven?
Convection ovens are named for the circulating effect that internal fans have on the heated air inside the oven. These are commonly referred to as fan ovens.
A traditional oven uses heat radiated from the walls and heating elements, either electric or gas powered. A convection oven uses internal fans to spread hot air in a continuous cycle.
This cooks food faster by creating a uniform, even temperature over every surface. Because of this, there’s no need to worry about the bottom of food burning before the upper portion is cooked thoroughly.
Advantages of a convection oven
In addition to the even temperature, using a convection oven allows you to prepare any dish that can be done in a conventional oven.
