Ask the Expert: Cooking with Convection

Faster and more efficient, convection ovens deliver impressive results—once you make a few adjustments

Fine Cooking Issue 92

Convection Tips

  • To get comfortable with using a convection oven, cook one of your favorite dishes and record the changes in temperature and time. The more you use a convection oven, the better you will know how it cooks.
  • Always test for doneness a few minutes before the minimum time suggested until you get comfortable with cooking the convection way.
  • When shopping for a convection oven, a major consideration should be the availability of repair service, if necessary. It’s great to have the latest and greatest stove, but if it cannot be serviced easily (either by the company or its contract people), it can be a nightmare and very expensive.
