- A hot air convection fan (simply convection fan) is a device found in ovens that are often included inside modern cookers.
- A convection oven primarily works through a convection fan that blows hot air all around the food.
- The hot oven air is then vented back out through an exhaust system.
- The fan helps the even circulation of hot air around the food and it quickens the baking.
- Modern cookers have both fan-assisted ovens and regular ovens.
- Regular ovens do not have a fan and exhaust system.
- The kind of food you prepare determines whether or not to use the convection oven.
- For cookies, for instance, you need the convection oven setting to enable you to bake more than one tray of cookies simultaneously without having to rotate them midway through baking.
