Q. What, if any, are the advantages of roasting meat in a convection oven?

—Marcia, via's CooksTalk forum

A. Large cuts of meat cook faster under convection than in a conventional oven. I also find that I don't need to sear roasts on the stovetop before putting them in the oven because the continuous circulation of the hot air under convection sears and browns the outside of the roast beautifully.
