What is a Convection Oven

Don't get us wrong, we love a good cooker but even we understand how all this oven talk can be a bit overwhelming. With so many cookers on offer it can be hard to know which best suits your requirements, so let's take this one cooker at a time. In this blog, we will be answering the common question "what is a convection oven?", which will hopefully get you one step closer to knowing what will work for you. 

What is a convection oven?

So actually this really isn't a complicated question, it basically all comes down to the fan. A convection oven is a cooker that has a fan and exhaust system that pushes hot air evenly around the oven cavity. This allows the hot air to steadily cook your food and give you an even bake. This also cooks your food more quickly than a traditional oven would. 

This is why convection oven is generally the preferred cooker choice for many people these days. As the hot air is more evenly dispersed around the oven it means the person cooking can spend less time checking on the meal and having to turn baking trays around, for example. 

Benefits of a convection oven

  • Food cooks more evenly - As we mentioned above, allowing hot air to be pushed evenly around your oven means that your food is all heating up at the same pace. This should stop that old dilemma when you have half your meal cooking and the other still looking raw. That can be a real pain which is why an even bake is one of the most beneficial features of a conventional oven. 
  • Food cooks more quickly - We want our food and we want it now! Okay, maybe we aren't that impatient, but it is nice to know your food will be ready as quickly as possible without the risk of burning it. Okay, so there's always a risk you're going to burn your food if you aren't careful, but convection ovens still heat up food around 25% faster than traditional ovens. 
  • Saves energy - Because your food is cooking at a quicker speed and at a cooler temperature (generally speaking) you tend to use less energy to cook your meal. This makes convection ovens slightly more energy efficient which should save you money.
