Going appliance shopping and want the low down on what’s new? Here is the low down on speed ovens  

 What Is A Speed Oven? 

 At their core, speed convection ovens are simply a compact, faster version of a standard convection oven. High-speed ovens combine multiple cooking methods into one, powerful appliance. Although the technology and combination of heating methods differ depending on individual oven engineering, adding a speed oven to your kitchen can increase preparation speed without sacrificing on quality. Along with three sources of heat, one of the main advantages of a speed oven is that they are ventless. This means that now you can offer food products without the need of a expensive hood! Along with this you get better results than just simply using a microwave! 

What is a speed convection oven’s heating method? 

  • Microwave: In general, most high-speed ovens include some form of microwave heating. Microwaves are designed to warm-up the inside of the food. Microwaves work by causing vibration in water molecules, this vibration and friction at a molecular level is what causes the food to quickly warm up from within. 
  • Convection: Convection heating helps circulate air by using a fan at the back or top of the oven’s interior. This gives products even heating, a crispy base, and beautifully browned tops. Convection brings high-quality standards into speed cooking. 
  • Impingement: New to high-speed oven technology, impingement heating is an advanced—yet simple—process to reduce cooking time. This method fires hot puffs of air at 60 mph directly on top of cooking products, so impingement can create a browning or even melting effect on pizza, lasagna, and other dishes.
