In this era of diverse oven controllers, there exist various disparities in oven types and functionalities. The question arises: how do you determine which oven best suits your needs?

gas oven

Electric ovens employ a metal heating element to reach a specific temperature, emitting a red glow while in operation. Typically, these elements are situated at the base of the oven, accompanied by an additional grilling element at the top.

Upon utilizing electricity, you'll discover that it heats up more rapidly than gas, and the temperature remains more stable.

A gas oven incorporates a tube burner ignited by a spark to combust gas. The heating element is typically located beneath the floor, while the grill burner is positioned on top, similar to that of an electric oven.

While some models feature a bottom drawer specifically designed for rotisserie chicken, others solely offer drawers for storage purposes.

Gas ovens exhibit more temperature fluctuations than other types due to the burner's on-off mechanism as it heats and maintains the desired temperature. Although mechanically similar to electric ovens, gas ovens' heating elements require a longer time to reach the desired warmth.

Therefore, it is extremely important not only to identify hot spots, but also the quality of your oven controller so that you can personally monitor these temperature changes.

The silver lining is that gas tends to be more economical than electricity, offering a more natural heat source due to its consistency and ability to introduce moisture into the oven's air through combustion. This often results in excellent baking outcomes. However, the elevated internal humidity levels can occasionally pose challenges for certain recipes, causing browning issues and hot spots, particularly in older models.

In the case of a convection oven, you'll encounter a third, circular element positioned around the fan at the rear. This oven type is typically found in restaurant kitchens, and if you have a double oven set, it's likely that one of them offers convection functionality.

When using a convection oven, it's worth noting that they tend to generate more heat, which is circulated by the fan to achieve a more uniform cooking experience. Nevertheless, this doesn't guarantee the absence of hot spots. It's crucial to test with convection models, as they may still distribute heat unevenly within the baking chamber.
