Learning to use my new oven!

I've never had a convection oven before.  In fact, I even asked the sales person why I needed a convection oven!  The new oven can be used either as a conventional oven or as a convection.

So I opened the owner's manual and followed the directions.  But no matter what I did, the convection oven came on (that's my side of the story).  Finally, I sent an e-mail to the sales person at Charlotte Appliance.  She responded, giving me the same instructions as I had been following.

"What am I doing wrong?" I asked myself.

When I turned the knob for conventional baking, I immediately heard a sound that I swore was the fan for the convection oven.  Only this time, I opened the oven door and stuck my hand inside to "prove" that the fan was on. . . except that the fan was not on!

I can laugh at it now, but I was getting really frustrated for awhile. 

I cooked a roast, using the convection setting one night this week.  It turned out great.


  1. Oh I've done things like that before. Good thing we can laugh about it later eh?!

  2. Let me know how you like it. Eventually the 70 year old gas oven is going to be turned into a neat table for potted plants on the sun porch.

  3. Sounds wonderful! :) And, lots of fun, too.

    Happy Valentine's Day!
