Fan assisted oven

After 22 years, I have had a new cooker, Duel Fuel fan assisted oven. All shiny and new but a complete enigma to me at this point I have never used Electric for cooking.
Cooking times appear to be so vague. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Fan assisted oven

Hello Amanda,

All Delia’s recipes are tested using conventional heat. If you have a fan assisted oven that can be switched to convectional top and bottom heat we would advise you do this particularly for baking.

If you cannot stop the fan then the general advice we give and is frequently discussed amongst the forum contributors is to reduce the recipe temperature by 20 degrees.

Ovens do vary and you will probably have to to go through a bit of trial and error until you get comfortable with your new oven.

Best wishes

Lindsey

Thank you for your reply. Looks like I'm in for a few roller coaster rides.

New Ovens

With a new oven the very first thing I test it on are Yorkshire Puds. They usually give a good indication of heat and timings you need.....and the ingredients don't cost much if your original test is a bit out of range as it were !!
