Very true, especially if it's a structural option such as a loft, for instance.

Went to looked a model JUST like the one we bought!
Did I say I'm excited?
SO!
Our countdown is on to when the contractor will break ground on our new home... and I started think about all of the options that we chose.
I couldn't remember the model # of the range that we get, so I pulled down that HUGE binder that they give you at the first design meeting

DANG IT!
It doesn't have convection mode!
I love that for baking!

Dear DC pals, do you bake with or without convection in your gas oven?
Does it make that big of a difference in a gas oven?
Should ask for a different model?

I don't bake Kgirl, but I sure like my convection roast setting! Hear that crispy chicken skin?

I've never used convection for baking. It seems to work fine. I do use it for roasting meats and veggies - and chicken - and they're done faster and very delicious

+1! Makes a nice crust on a medium rare roast beef, too.

I have never had the privilege of using a convection oven. But every person I know that has one or did, love it and will never go back to having a stove without one. Make the change now. Then you won't have to live any regrets. Only happiness.

Agreed!
Convection is wonderful for cooking things other than baked goods.
It seems that I have using the convection setting on my electric range here in the middle of the desert for the most part.
But what I was wondering was does anyone have a GAS range with convection?
I've been reading so many different opinions online about this.
I was reading on one site that it's not a true convection with gas, only electric.

Any opinions, first hand experience out there?

No first hand experience but I don't understand the statement that a gas oven isn't a true convection. Convection is related to a fan blowing the hot air around the inside of the oven to ensure more even heat distribution. That works with any fuel source.

I have gas with convection. That's what I was talking about. I believe Kayelle does, too.

Me three.. Love convection for roasting, but I rarely use it for baking. I would go without self cleaning before giving up convection.
