The Advantages of Using a Convection (fan) Oven

Convection ovens are known for their popularity in the hotel industry / commercial cooking facilities. However, recent domestic designs follow this convection method in order to reap the benefits of this commercially designed oven. A convection oven can cook more quickly and thoroughly than conventional ovens and at relatively low temperatures too. They use a fan which circulates the heated air inside, and in doing so cooks the food quickly. This also helps cook the food at a same rate, no matter where it is placed in the oven – your food will be evenly cooked! This blog will help you understand more about convection ovens.

They cook evenly

If you have ever baked something and found the top of your food has baked before the bottom, you should consider a fan oven. They will be able to get a more even result throughout. The fan inside the oven allows the hot air to circulate and maintain the consistent temperature within.

Shorter cooking time

Efficiency of the fan in the oven makes it possible to cook food at lower temperatures. Where you would normally to be cooking at 350 degrees, you could potentially cook food at only 300 degrees in a convection oven.

Multiple dishes at a time

If you are throwing a party at your home, you may need to cook more than one dish in the oven at the same time. If you try to cook more than one dish at a time, the temperature will drop in conventional ovens. This in turn makes one dish cook faster than the other leaving you with uneven, undesirable food. This isn’t the case with the fan assisted models. They ‘see’ different foods as one single item and cook it all at the same rate. In a fan assisted oven, you can put dishes anywhere you want in the oven – without any risk of burning!
