What is a convection oven?
A convection oven has a fan and exhaust system that helps circulate hot air around the cavity of the oven, helping to reduce hot and cool spots and for more even results with multi-rack cooking. Convection ovens can also have a third heating element, called True Convection, to help foods cook faster by distributing hot air around the top, bottom and sides of your meal. They are ideal for roasting meats, baking and may eliminate the need to rotate your dishes in the oven. Learn more about how convection ovens work to cook your food.
While cooking with a convection oven, be mindful that recipe times and temperatures may need to be adjusted. If you notice your oven’s temperature is off, it may need to be calibrated before use. Select Whirlpool® gas and electric convection ovens are equipped with a Convection Conversion feature that does the math for you and automatically adjusts the cooking time and temperature for your next meal.
