Convection Gas Range

A convection gas range can make cooking a lot easier and faster. Convection ovens also offer better tasting foods when fully cooked as the device will make sure the food is heated evenly and thoroughly. A convection gas range will include a fan which is used to circulate hot air within the oven. This is the main reason for the device being able to heat the food more evenly as it prevents there from being any hot or cold spots inside the oven.

A convection gas range will cook food quicker than a conventional oven will. To prevent food from burning you will want to make sure that you are cooking it for the right amount of time and at the right temperature. As convection ovens work slightly different to conventional ovens this means that you will have to make modifications to recipes. Most recipes are tailored for conventional oven use which typically takes more time and a higher temperature to cook foods in comparison to convection ovens.

Using a Convection Gas Range
When using a convection gas range you will need to make minor changes to your recipes. For instance, you will want to decrease the cooking temperature by about 25 degrees for everything you cook. Keep in mind that any recipe you read is designed for conventional oven use unless stated otherwise. So, decrease the cooking temperature by 25 degrees for every recipe you use and for any cooking at all.

Food burns much quicker in a convection gas range as well. After the food is fully cooked it could burn in no time. Usually food will burn slowly over a period of time in a conventional oven but it is a much quicker process in a convection oven. To prevent food from burning your best bet would be to regularly check on it when it is close to being finished.

Convection Oven vs. Conventional Oven
A conventional oven generally does not include a fan to circulate hot air throughout the oven. Due to this it will be required that the food is cooked at a higher temperature. There is also a greater chance of there being hot and cold spots within the oven and food not cooking evenly. The result of this will also be food burning more frequently than you would likely. A convection oven burns food faster but it is less likely to occur if you are observant and choose the proper cooking settings when preparing the device for use.

Buying a Convection Gas Range

If you purchase a new convection gas range then you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000. The price will vary by the brand name, specific model, size, features, and more. You should purchase from a trusted brand which has an extensive history in the kitchen appliance industry. A few popular brands of kitchen appliance suppliers which have a decent line up of convection gas ranges include Kenmore, Electrolux, and GE. Take a look at their products and do some research on specific models to get a better idea on how good of a deal you may be getting.

Final Thoughts
A convection gas range is energy efficient and can cook foods much quicker than a conventional oven can. You spend less time preparing the device (pre-heating) as you are cooking the food at a lower temperature. The food will also cook more evenly and thoroughly. Overall, the cooking experience from a convection gas range is considerably superior to that of a conventional oven. To close, this is a worthwhile investment and is definitely worth considering by anyone that is looking for a new kitchen oven.
