What should I know about different oven settings?
March 19, 2014 9:33 AM Subscribe
My oven has the following settings:"Circotherm" (IE, convection); top/bottom heat; "Circotherm intensive" (which seems to be convection + bottom heat); "Circo-roasting" (convection + grill); full-surface grill; center-area grill; bottom heating; low-temperature cooking; and defrost. I know that convection cooks things faster, so I need to reduce either heat or cooking time when adapting recipes. What else should I know to take full advantage of all these different modes?

(The manual has a small amount of advice on when to use each setting, but it's not tremendously helpful, and in any case, there's a lot of party-line stuff about "Your new oven will produce succulent and tender meat!" I'd love to hear any real-world experience people have had in the various methods of cooking.)
