101 0

It’s time to switch your oven. But which one should you get? This blog post will compare Conventional vs Convection ovens and help you make the right choice! Convection ovens are costly compared to conventional ovens so that it can be a hard decision for many people. 

How convection ovens work

This oven works by using fans to distribute heat evenly around the oven. It is much more energy-efficient than its comparison and allows you to cook faster, which is a massive benefit for people who do not have a lot of time on their hands.

Features to look for in convection ovens

If you’re a starter and looking for a new oven, make sure you get the one that has an option to turn the fan off. Most people prefer ovens with four controls: bake, broil convection roast, and convection bake.

Convection cooking is great for crockery items meant to be eaten fresh, such as fried rice or porridge. The lower fan speed of an oven creates lovely dried-out vegetables with crispy outsides, while the higher speeds specialize in chunky meats and beautifully caramelized roasted veggies!

It’s also worth noting what we at home could get up to if only our oven had this fancy technology: perfectly evenly browned toast; Incredible cookie scores plated onto warm doughnuts dusted liberally.

Convective Pros:

  • Convective ovens are more energy-efficient than conventional appliances. They use less power because it cooks faster and doesn’t require preheating, which saves you time in the long run!
  • The convective countertop can be very cheap if you buy one that’s refurbished or second hand-it will still pay itself off in no time.

How Conventional Ovens Work

Conventional ovens heat food using radiation from the flame that surrounds it in the centre of the oven. This type of oven does not cook as fast as convection ones, but it is much cheaper.

Drawbacks to Convection Ovens

  • They are costly when bought brand new
  • It can burn your house down if not used properly.
  • Convection can leave cold spots on your dish where the heat does not circulate appropriately during baking or broiling. These areas will generally need additional preparation or longer cooking times to ensure that everything is evenly cooked throughout the dish. 

Drawbacks for conventional ovens

These drawbacks include:

  • The food does not cook evenly
  • The temperature is harder to control (especially when roasting meat).
  • It’s time to switch your oven. But which one should you get? Convection ovens are more expensive than conventional ovens so that it can be a hard decision for many people.
  • They take a reasonable amount of time to heat. 

The best: Conventional Vs Convection Oven

While convective ovens might be more beneficial in specific ways, it doesn’t mean conventional ovens should never be considered as well! The benefit between these two types is really up to personal preference and what exactly you’re looking for when choosing an oven. If time isn’t something you’re too concerned about, and the price is – convection may end up being the best option for you.

Finally, I know I may sound too technical in comparing the two most used terms in selecting an oven for use in homes or commercial places. I have also taken my humble time to address the different types of ranges available in most markets both in Kenya and beyond in another very informative article, “The Different Types of Ovens: A Comprehensive Guide.”
