Convection ovens are an environmentally friendly option as a cooking appliance, as they significantly reduce household energy use. They use a fan technology that cooks food quicker that other types of ovens.
Convection ovens use one-third less energy than conventional ovens due to their efficient process of evenly circulating heated air for cooking. In addition to saving energy, convection ovens are also generally easier to clean than traditional gas and electric ovens as they come primarily with an easy to maintain stainless steel finish. Also, many convection ovens are self-cleaning, preventing the need to use chemicals or other substances inside the oven.
