Convection Oven fan

pkuditipudi | Apr 14, 2007 10:44 AM

I am trying to decide between a Whirlpool GMC275PRB and Frigidaire GLEB27M9F.

Whirpool is a coventional oven (no fan)
Firgidaire is a convection oven (fan)

I am worried about the fan noise being loud and also the fan running for an hour or more, even after the oven is turned off.

When we have company I do not want my friends to run out of the kitchen because of the sound. I think the Frigidaire has a option to turn the convection option off. (not sure though)

Also to consider:
Whirpool - has controls all in one place
Frigidaire - has separate controls and the microwave is removable - in case it stops working in the combination unit - don't need to replace entire unit - just replace the microwave.

Please help me decide.
