I've never used a convection oven before but I'd like to know too as I just ordered a double wall oven with convection on the top for our new house.

I personally prefer convection as it's what I learned on in school and what I use professionally. Unfortunately, for my home baking, I'm stuck with conventional at the moment, but when I get that new kitchen, I plan on double wall oven with convection on top!

I just bought a new oven with double convection... paid a pretty penny for it, thinking this would be great for my cakes... well, while reading the instruction booklet (yes, I'm one of those nerds that reads the books from cover to cover) it actually said that it was best NOT to use the convection feature for cakes - (it has a seperate "cakes" button)..

not sure if this is very helpful.... but it does warrant a bit more research..

good luck!

Deana, what brand did you buy? Is it a "true convection" or just convection? The one I just purchased was expensive but the True Convection is more expensive and if I remember right not available in commercial ovens.
