Convection element
« on: July 18, 2019, 05:36:41 PM »

Why is a convection element included when there is already a bake element? And when does the convection element come on? Does it cycle or run continuously?

This is what I have in mind:

There are ovens that have a fan but no convection element. That's not true convection, true convection requires a convection element. It cycles like a normal bake element, the fan runs continuously.
