is convection worth the cost??

Hi there hounds-

We're in the midst of a kitchen remodel, and are generally buying mid-range standard appliances (i.e., nice kitchenaid, no wolf or anything like that) as we're not going to be in this house forever.

We've bought a gas stovetop and pop-up downdraft, and just lack a wall oven. We're moving from a gas range to an electric oven, so I think that will be a step up in terms of consistency/even-heating, but I can't quite get over how much more the convection ovens cost.

My question is- is convection worth paying several hundred dollars more?? I should add that I use the my oven a fair amount, but do very little baking. More meats, lasagna, things like that.

many thanks!
