Electric oven - heat from above, below, or both?

musicalchef | Jun 29, 2013 09:35 AM

I just bought a small electric oven, and it has the option of setting it to heat from above, below, or both. Which option should I choose for what?

I baked cupcakes yesterday and selected "below," because I thought that's where the heat came from when I baked in a normal oven (although I'm not sure because I've never thought to pay attention), and they turned out ok.

What if I want to make roasted potato wedges? Steak? Lasagna?

Thanks, and sorry if this is a stupid question!
