what to do w/ combo setting on convection-microwave

vjb | Dec 20, 201412:24 PM    

Hi, folks, we have this Panasonic convection-microwave oven that has a combination setting, and we've never used it in the three years we've owned the oven. There are 4 temperature settings, ranging from 275F to 375F, and each uses 30 percent microwave power. There is no information in the instructions about what one would use this combination for, nor how to choose which of the 4 settings to use.

Do any of the 'hounds use the combination convection+microwave settings in their C-M ovens? If so, for what kinds of foods or dishes? Why use the combo rather than just, say, convection? Does the microwaving and, uh, convecting happen at the same time or sequentially? Any learning experiences to pass on about what to do with the combo setting and what not to do with it?

Looking forward to hearing from the convection-microwave-combo-cook pioneers……!
