The convection oven is great. You must
use the metal stand when cooking anything. The stand allows the heat to be moved (with a fan) all around the food. Take any recipe and set the oven to the recipe temperature. No preheating is necessary because the oven allows for that and the heat is almost instant. Now the best part...if the recipe calls for 45 minutes you take half of that and add 5 minutes for cooking. i.e. 45 minutes is cut in half to 22.5 minutes plus 5 minutes to equal 27.5 minutes total cooking time including the built-in preheating. I know it sounds strange but it works! Any cooking time
is cut in half plus 5 minutes. We have the convection/microwave oven in our coach and it is called a "half-time oven" for that very reason. The micro is used without
the metal stand just like any ordinary microwave.
After using the convection oven, we wonder why we don't have it at home. Unfortunately, we have a new oven at home that is not convection. We didn't know what convection cooking was until having it in our coach. You will really like it. Happy travels, Joe
