Encyclopedia > Convection oven

Convection ovens or fan ovens or turbo ovens augment a traditional oven by circulating heated air using a fan. The fan motor is in a separate enclosure to keep from overheating. Food warms faster in a convection oven since the moving air strips away the thin layer of air which otherwise would surround and insulate the food. Technically, all ovens have natural convection currents, which vary with food placement and position of the heating elements. For this reason a more accurate term would be "forced-convection oven." The popular term, "convection oven" could therefore be construed as a shortened version of this more precise name. Image File history File links Question_book-3. ... Oven depicted in a painting by Millet An oven is an enclosed compartment for heating, baking or drying. ... For other uses, see Fan. ...


By moving fast hot air past the food, convection ovens can operate at a lower temperature than a standard conventional oven and yet cook food more quickly. The air circulation, or convection, tends to eliminate "hot spots" and thus food may bake more evenly. Convection in the most general terms refers to the movement of currents within fluids (i. ...

A convection oven will have about a 50 degree Fahrenheit reduction in cooking temperature, compared to a conventional oven. This comparison will vary, depending on factors including, for example, how much food is being cooked at once or if airflow is being restricted by using an oversized baking tray).[citation needed] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 450 × 600 pixelsFull resolution‎ (634 × 845 pixels, file size: 75 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Rivers Langley, http://www. ...

Many convection ovens also include a proofing capability using the same fan but at a much lower temperature. A residential double oven will often include the fan capability in only one of the two ovens.[citation needed] Challah proofing in loaf pans. ...


Convection microwave ovens combine a convection oven with a microwave oven to cook food with the speed of a microwave oven and the browning ability of a convection oven. A Convection Microwave is a combination of a standard microwave oven, and a Convection oven. ... Microwave oven A microwave oven, or microwave, is a kitchen appliance employing microwave radiation primarily to cook or heat food. ... Browning is the process of becoming brown, especially refering to food. ...


Another form of a convection oven is the commercial impingement oven. This type of oven is often used to cook pizzas in restaurants. Impingement ovens have a high flow rate of hot air from both above and below the food. The air flow is directed onto food which usually passes through the oven on a conveyor belt. Air flow rates can range between 1-5 m³/s. Impingement ovens can achieve a much higher heat transfer than a conventional oven.


Like the "impingment oven" a convection oven usually has the radiant elements in view of the food which improves heat transfer and speeds cooking from initial cold start. Some ovens have the heating elements placed in an outside enclosure and hidden from the food. This eliminates radiant heat from direct contact with the food.

Convection Oven (511 words)
Operating on standard household current, the convection oven uses electricity to heat the air in the oven.
Since this heat-circulating fan is not inside the oven cavity, the oven can be filled from top to bottom as long as an inch of space is left for the air to circulate between the food and the oven walls.
Convection ovens provide more uniform heat than regular ovens by moving the oven air away from both the heat source and the top of the oven cavity.
Convection oven - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (138 words)
Convection ovens use heated air that is forced into the oven by fans located in the back of the oven, generally for cooking food.
By moving heated air past the food, convection ovens operate at a lower temperature than a standard conventional oven and they can cook food more quickly.
With a convection oven there will be about a 25 to 30% decrease in cooking temperature and a 20% decrease in cooking time as compared to a conventional oven.
