I just got a convection oven two months ago and have been struggling a little with it. It is one of the "good" convection ovens, with the heating element around the fan, as opposed to without the extra heating element. It auto-adjusts the temperature to account for the fact that I'm using it on the convect setting. And I put a thermometer inside and have verified that the temperature is accurate. I've found that everything is taking longer to bake than the indicated time on the recipe. Granted, I've been using recipes that I haven't used a huge number of times, but ALL the recipes are taking longer than suggested. I know I can go back and use some cookie recipes I've been baking all my life but I'd rather not make dozens of cookies I don't want just to test the oven. Can anyone tell me if this is typical, or does it sound like I got a lemon? Thanks!
