A convection oven that is also a microwave is a cooking appliance which works by circulating air around the food to heat it and cook it evenly. This article will discuss how these types of ovens work in greater detail, as well as how one might be able to purchase such an appliance.
This type of oven can be used for so many different purposes that there really isn’t anything you cannot cook in them. They are designed to not only heat up foods quickly, but also cool them down at the same time.

Benefits of a convection oven and a microwave
Make popcorns, warm food, bake, air fry, and even defrost
Faster cooking times due to a combination of convection and microwave cooking.
More even cooking with convection setting.
Racks that allow you to microwave multiple dishes at once.
Operates with a timer, so it won’t overheat when you are not around
Avoid the messes of a traditional oven while still cooking food
Inexpensive to buy and easy to operate, making them a good idea for anyone with limited cooking space. That is why I recommend using an oven that’s also a microwave for all your needs.
Are convection ovens worth it?
Potentially, a convection oven is a great investment. They can be used for baking and air frying. In fact, a convection oven is designed to do the same thing with less energy and heat. They are also designed to run quietly so you can watch TV while your food is cooking. Most of the time convection ovens have modes for grill, bake, roast, and even pizza.
Is convection oven better than oven?
While a microwave oven is great for uniform reheating, cooking and defrosting, a convection microwave is great for grilling, baking, roasting, browning and crisping foods. A convection oven is more energy-efficient than an oven, toaster and griller (OTG).
How do you use a microwave convection oven
Most convection microwaves use glass turntable or a microwave plate. If a glass turntable is used, most of the time it must be filled with water or grease to prevent the plate from burning on the food. This can be dangerous and should not be used as an alternative to using a regular oven. In large microwaves, there is also a problem of overheating and burning because of this.
Use only special utensils, designed for UHF-ovens.
Make food in such a volume so that it won’t come out raw.
Every model should be accompanied with a special rack that allows airflows to circulate around the cooking dish.
To get crispy crust, use convection with a grill. This will help to save not only energy, but also your time.
Before starting baking (bread, muffins, biscuits) and roasting (fish, poultry and meat) preheat the oven for 10 minutes.
Differences between a convection microwave and a regular microwave
Convection microwaves are designed to combine the most efficient way of cooking food with the use of a microwave. Convection microwaves are designed to heat food with hot air. In a regular microwave, microwaves cook food directly, and in doing so, it usually ends up burning the food. With a convection microwave, the hot air circulates around the food, causing it to cook more evenly every time.
How are convection microwaves different from regular microwaves?
Convection ovens operate on the principle of hot air cooking. The food is placed in a rotating turntable, which is filled with hot air. Convection’s most important feature will be the ability to rotate the turntable every 10 – 15 seconds. So every 10 – 15 seconds, hot air will reach the food and make it ready to cook.
