I use the convection setting most of the time. The savings in time is most pronounced if the cooking time is long. I've noticed very little difference with cookies and cakes. I usually check about 5-10 minutes early. The more you use it, the more familiar you will be with when to start checking.

I'd love a convection oven. Def use it!

In culinary school classes we used convestion ovens and all our baked goods finished faster. It's important to get a handle on how much faster that is so that you don't overcook things.

I am no expert but my convection is good for cookies and roasts. Anything that is in a flat type pan.

Last thanksgiving we cooked a turkey in one at my brothers. It was great!! cooked all the way through but the bird remained nice an juicy with a great golden skin. It took much less time to cook than with a conventional oven.

ITA with Jeff. My turkeys come out great and much faster. Also, Elaine is correct, use shallow pans with no lids. I'm sure you are going to like it.
