Convection ovens use a fan to distribute heat throughout the oven evenly; they are otherwise similar to standard ovens. Frigidaire offers both gas and electric convection ovens.
Although heat spreads through all ovens, conventional ovens heat the air surrounding the heated surface at the bottom of the oven, which takes time to spread throughout the oven. As a result, some parts of the oven might be warmer than others, and foods may cook unevenly. Convection ovens circulate air throughout the oven, which provides faster cooking in certain situations. On most Frigidaire convection ovens, owners can turn off the fans, which allows owners to use them like conventional ovens.
