Did my convection oven kill my custards?

Claudette | Jan 12, 2008 04:27 PM

I've made thousands of custards, flans, and les cremes brulees over the decades, and since I got a new convection oven, they've been burnt on the sides, separating and not setting in the centers. Today, after watching them jiggle for over 90 minutes, I turned off the convection fan, and then they set up immediately, just like the old days. Do any of you have problems using convection ovens for custards? Just curious.
