Baking cake in convection oven is better or conventional oven

My oven has both heating elements in convection and conventional mode?? Which feature is best for baking cakes?? My electric oven does not have only Lowe heating element feature..


Hi saimak66

My personal choice is convection but both have their advantages. Convection/ fan ovens circulate the air inside the cavity to give an even, faster cooking. Temperature usually runs approximately 20 degrees higher than a conventional oven. If baking or cooking more delicate recipes, reduce the temperature by that amount to prevent burning or drying food. Conventional ovens take slightly longer, baking and cooking at a more steady pace .

For more detailed information please google
‘ convection oven v conventional’.

Hope suggestions help 🙂
