I went from conventional to convection 4 years ago, and I really like it. All I've had to do is lower my cooking temp by 25 degrees. So, instead of 325, I set my oven for 300 degrees on convection. I love how my cakes etc rise evenly, no turning pans, brown on top and bottom, love love love. I would totally recommend convection.

I have a convention oven as well... I will never go back to the old one. My oven automatically adjusts for the temp difference. If the recipe calls for 350 degrees, When I pick convection and 250 degtrees- it automatically adjusts and only heats to 325. I have never had an issue with uneven baking. I wouldn't trade ovens for the world. Love love love it!

We bake with a convection oven at work and I absolutely LOVE it. I agree with what the other posters said about lowering the baking temp 25 degrees F. Cakes come out beautifully baked.
