Convection Ovens 101

Zedeff | Nov 20, 2008 04:44 PM

I feel silly typing out this question. I make everything from scratch: my own stocks, candies, breads, and soon, my own chocolate; yet here I am with a beginner level question: how the heck do I use a convection oven?

I'm moving from my rental property with a non-convection oven into my first condo which has a convection oven. Every recipe I read, every cookbook I have, all of them specify times and temperatures without reference to convection settings. So, if I have access to a better oven, how do I adjust my cooking to use it properly, and what specific foods are best suited to convection? Do I decrease time and leave the temperature the same, or do I decrease temperatures and leave the times the same? Do I decrease both?

Thanks so much for your help!
