Baking enthusiasts and home cooks often wonder about the efficiency and versatility of fan-assisted ovens. Muffins and cupcakes typically bake in 15-20 minutes, while a 20cm/8-inch Victoria sandwich cake takes about 25 minutes. Other cake layers can vary, usually requiring 25 to 45 minutes depending on the tin size. The top fan oven is ideal for quick midweek meals, offering up to 15% time and energy savings. For larger meals, combining both top and bottom ovens allows cooking on up to six shelves.
The main electric fan oven ensures fast, even cooking. Food is cooked evenly, resulting in crispy exteriors and juicy interiors. The standard setting for these ovens usually features a fan symbol within a circle. To assist with temperature conversions between gas, Celsius, Fahrenheit, and fan ovens, a simple oven temperature conversion chart can be handy.
Our range of ovens, equipped with clever features, makes mealtimes and mastering new cooking skills easier. The oven’s fan can continue operating for up to 30 minutes post-use, aiding in cooling down. The heat in fan-assisted ovens is generated from a circular element surrounding the fan at the back, ensuring even distribution.
Compact ovens with microwave features, like the 44 litres, 9 functions, stainless steel New Timeless model, offer versatility in a compact form. The Cookology FOD60SS is another example, boasting a 61-litre capacity and true 1800w fan oven with an easy programmable timer in stainless steel.
For those who prefer electric ovens, brands like Electra, Indesit, and Beko offer budget-friendly options with user-friendly controls and useful features. The built-in double oven design is perfect for multitasking in the kitchen, allowing you to bake a soufflé while roasting meat.
When using a fan-assisted oven, it’s advised to reduce the temperature by 20 degrees Celsius compared to conventional ovens. For instance, if a recipe calls for 230°C, set the fan-assisted oven to 210°C. The Statesman EDC50B, for example, is a fan-assisted double oven electric cooker with a 4-zone ceramic hob and integrated grill.
Built-in electric fan ovens are designed to save time in the kitchen. Technologies like AeroPerfect minimize temperature fluctuations for faster, more even cooking results. The Beko KDVC563AW electric ceramic cooker features a 58-litre fan oven, providing ample cooking space. For ease of reference, consider downloading a temperature conversion chart to keep in your kitchen.
These electric ovens, offering consistent temperatures and even cooking, are an excellent addition to any kitchen, blending seamlessly into your decor. Bosch’s built-in ovens with an integrated microwave offer maximum flexibility in smaller kitchens, combining multiple cooking functions in one appliance.
Understanding the hourly cost of running these ovens can help in estimating specific running costs. Conventional single electric ovens, like those with a twin grill and double-glazed door, further exemplify the variety available in today’s market.
