## How do I convert a recipe to a convection oven?

Reduce the original baking temperature by 25°F. For example, if your recipe calls for baking the food in a 375°F oven, set the dial to 350°F. If it calls for 400°F, set it to 375°F. What about 450°F? You got it, 425°F is your convection oven temperature.

**How do I calculate cooking time for a convection oven?**

When following recipes for conventional ovens, the formula is this: Reduce the temperature by 25 degrees and reduce the cook time by about 20 percent. To calculate the latter, multiply the cook time in minutes by 0.8.

**How much faster does a convection oven cook than a regular oven?**

25 percent faster

Also, even with the temperature adjustment, you’ll find that convection ovens cook 25 percent faster than conventional ovens, especially if the food is a large item, like a turkey. You will need to reduce the cooking time, or at least keep an eye on your food. A faster cooking time is good, though.

### What is convection convert on oven?

The convection conversion feature is a function that converts a standard thermal bake cook time and temperature into an ideal cook time and temperature for convection cooking.

**How do you convert cooking times?**

How to adjust cooking times for different temperatures.

- Work out the percentage difference in temperature. Start Temperature / End Temp = % Difference.
- Adjust Expected Time. Multiply initial time by the % Difference.
- Add a safety margin.
- Opening the oven.
- Space around the food.
- Shelf Height / Position in the Oven.

**Does convection baking take less time?**

Convection ovens cook food faster than conventional ovens. To cook in a convection oven, follow this easy formula: reduce the temperature by 25 degrees or reduce the cooking time by 25%.

## Why does my convection oven only go to 325 degrees?

If you enter a regular recipe temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit and press the start key, the display will show the converted temperature which in this case would be 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Because convection cooking is a more efficient in transferring heat to the food, it doesn’t require as much heat.

**Is convection oven same as fan?**

A convection oven (also known as a fan-assisted oven or simply a fan oven) is an oven that has fans to circulate air around food which gives a very even heat.
