Convection Oven Buying Tips and FAQ

Are there different types of convection?

Answer:

Not all convection ovens are made alike. “True,” “European,” “Pure,” and “Fan-Assisted” are just a few of the phrases thrown into the mix to confuse consumers about their ovens. “True” or “European” convection refers to the third element in the back of the oven cell, similar to Dacor’s Pure Convection™ mode. This is the most crucial part to achieve even baking in a convection oven. “Fan-Assisted” convection refers to using the bottom element along with the fan in the back to distribute the heat. This would be Dacor’s Convection Bake™ mode.
