Going to choose an oven, you will definitely come across the concept of convection. You will recommend it, calling it innovation and describing the benefits. Is it really so? Let's see what is necessary for convection in the oven and due to what it happens.
Before turning to the consideration of complex induction processes, let us recall how an ordinary oven functions.
In the lower part there are burners providing heating. Adjustment occurs by changing the intensity of the flame and the height of the baking tray.
What happens to your culinary masterpiece? Its upper part is heated only by natural convection, that is, by moving warm air masses inside the oven.
That is why it is often possible to observe the picture: one part of the dish (located closer to the wall) already beckons a golden crust, and the other (closer to the door) has not even thought of reddening.
And begins the demonstration of ingenuity. We overturn the baking sheet, trying to equalize the heat, remove the burning pies, leaving some of the baking.
And everyone seems to have become accustomed, but exactly until a “whimsical” dough falls into your hands, which does not forgive the opening of the oven and juggling with the baking sheet.
Part of the situation saved the model of ovens with heating in the upper and lower parts. But even such a combination will not guarantee a uniform baking dish.
And all because natural convection is very slow and uneven. It is at such moments that all the advantages of ovens with forced convection are revealed.
Everything you need to know about forced convection
Principle of operation
The forced movement of hot air is provided by a fan. A hot vortex evenly heats up the prepared dish, and you can always forget about "pale" cakes and a burnt casserole.
In the presence of convection, you can quickly bake the meat with a whole piece, bake a whole baking sheet of small pies or one large one, dry the crackers, citrus fruits or herbs.
Electric oven with convection can be used to defrost food. To do this, start the cold convection function.
Does the convection mode always turn on in the oven? Not! Use it, focusing on the requirements that are put forward to the process of cooking a particular dish.
I determined for myself that the function is simply irreplaceable if necessary, quickly evaporate a large amount of juice, bake whole poultry or a large pie, get a crust on the surface of the dish.
The most common type of convection that can be installed in an electric oven.
The main task is to move the air smartly. In more expensive models, a heating element is installed next to the fan.

With one touch of a button, you not only make the air move, but also saturate it with steam. Due to this, the dishes do not dry out during long cooking.
The function will certainly appeal to supporters of healthy eating, who prefer to cook for a couple.
Such models of ovens are offered by the brand Neff. What is the advantage?
The rapid flow of air instantly creates a crust, preventing the juices from evaporating. The result is a juicy culinary masterpiece.
Not so long ago, the convection mode in the oven was attributed exclusively to electric models. Today brands are Beko, Gorenje, Bosch, Electrolux, Zanussi, Freggia, Gunter.
