  • When to Switch to Your Oven’s Convection Setting

    If your new high-end oven has a convection setting, you may find yourself wondering what exactly makes a convection oven different from a conventional oven. The difference is simple: Unlike a conventional oven, an oven with a convection setting has a fan that blows hot air to cook food. Then, the hot air is vented using an exhaust system. The convection setting provides for faster, more even, and more efficient cooking. Here are some cases when the convection setting is the right choice to achieve the most delicious results:

    You’re baking a batch of cookies.

    The convection setting isn’t recommended for cooking some popular desserts, such as custards or cakes. It’s great for making cookies, however, because it ensures that the treats will be baked evenly. Instead of having to rotate the pan of cookies, you can simply wait until they’re finished baking.

    You’re making a casserole.

    The convection setting is great for cooking anything in a covered dish, since it makes it easier to cook the food all the way through. While using the convection feature tends to dry food out, this won’t be a problem if you have the food covered while it’s cooking.

    You’re roasting a meal.

    If you want to make roast chicken, roast duck, or even roasted vegetables, the convection setting will come in handy. Not only will the convection feature speed up the cooking process, but it will also make the food crispier on the outside while keeping it tender on the inside.

    You want to dehydrate your food.

    Using the convection feature is one of the easiest ways to dehydrate food. If you want to make dried fruit as a snack, for instance, you can do it effortlessly by cutting up the fruit, turning on the convection setting, and letting the fruit dry out on a baking sheet inside your oven.

  • Spotlight on the Benefits of Vent Hoods

    When designing the luxury kitchen of your dreams, don’t overlook the benefits of installing a top-quality vent hood . This appliance, which is positioned above the stovetop, works to remove smoke, steam, and contaminated air from your kitchen. Here is a brief look at the benefits you can enjoy by adding a high-end vent hood to your kitchen:

    Protection from Fumes

    When you use a gas stove, it emits carbon monoxide into the surrounding air—which, in high doses, can be dangerous. One of a vent hood’s functions is to remove carbon monoxide and other emissions from your indoor air, helping to keep you and the other members of your household safe.

    Reduced Odors

    Cooking and food preparation results in a lot of diverse smells. When these smells linger, they can make your kitchen a decidedly unpleasant place to be. Using a vent hood will ensure that odors are captured and removed right away, keeping your kitchen smelling clean and fresh.

    Cleaner Stove Area

    When the smoke caused by cooking isn’t removed from your kitchen, the resulting grime will stick to the walls and your stovetop. Along with making your kitchen dirty, this can foster the growth of bacteria and mold. A vent hood will make it easier for you to keep this area clean and sanitary.

    More Comfortable Kitchen

    Vent hoods take much of the heat produced by your stove out of the air, which helps to keep your kitchen cool. If you find yourself running the air conditioning whenever you use your stove, install a vent hood to enjoy greater comfort as you prepare home-cooked meals for your family.
