If you’ve been looking at ranges and wall ovens at your local home appliance store, you may be wondering about the difference between conventional ovens and convection ovens. Both conventional and convection wall ovens are available with either gas ranges or electric ranges, but each oven distributes heat differently.
The source of heat in a conventional wall oven is fixed, or stationary. The heat typically radiates upwards from the bottom of the oven. This may cause pockets of hot or cold air throughout the wall oven, and food on bottom oven racks may undercook, while food in upper oven racks may overcook. Convection ovens utilize fans to circulate hot air throughout the oven. This allows for more even and efficient cooking.
