How do I adjust cooking time or temperature when I use the convection setting on my oven? 

Convection cooking is often faster and always at a lower temperature than regular oven cooking. Set your convection oven for 25 degrees lower than the recipe calls for, and feel free to crowd your oven: even with food on every rack, convection keeps the air circulating and the food cooks evenly. (That makes life easier when you're entertaining!). A whole roast‚ be it a whole turkey, leg of lamb, pork roast or crown roast‚ may cook in 25% less time (using the "convection roast" setting), while several trays of cookies may bake (again, at a 25 degree lower temperature) in just a little less time than the recipe calls for.

For a collection of appetizers, main dishes and desserts that are baked in a convection oven, see Convection Oven Cooking.
