Setting Convection Bake
The CONVECTION ..... _B_,k_! 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 170 ° F
(77 ° 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. Convection bake
cooks most foods faster and more evenly than conventional bake. This oven is
equipped with multiple fan speeds for even cooking when baking and better tasting
meats when roasting. Itwill use a slower fan speed for baking. The slow fan speed
will be used for slowly and evenly move the air through the cavity and produce
lighter flakier crusts for pies and evenly brown cookies.
