Ovens

Question: What's the difference between fan and fan-assisted ovens?

Fan ovens have a heating element around the fan behind the rear panel. The electric element heats the air being circulated by the fan and evenly distributes it throughout the oven. Fan-assisted ovens, on the other hand, have two heating elements, one in the roof and one in the base with the addition of a fan in the rear. This allows you to use all the shelves at once without the flavours of different foods intermingling. You'll save time, energy and money too.
