Tips for Cooking with a Convection Oven

Electrolux EW30IS65JS Convection Oven/ Range

After cooking the inaugural meal in your brand-new convection oven, you notice that your food is burned or overcooked. Confused, you check the instructions, but can’t figure out where you went wrong. Take a deep breath, you just need to tweak your recipes a little.

Both regular (conventional) and convection ovens use burners to heat the air inside the oven and transfer the heat to the food. In a regular oven, the air is stationary, which can result in burnt food on the bottom rack (where the heating element is) and overcooked food on the top rack (because heat rises). A convection oven uses a fan to circulate the air throughout the oven. This allows for faster, more even cooking. It also means that your recipe has to be adjusted.Electrolux EW30GS75KS Inside

A good rule of thumb is to remember the number “25.” You either need to reduce the temperature in your convection oven by 25 degrees, or decrease the cooking time by 25 percent.

Here are some other tips for convection cooking:

  1. When baking breads, cakes, cookies, and other desserts, reduce the temperature, not the time. This will give you more control and help prevent burning.
  2. When roasting meat, reduce the time, not the temperature. This has the added bonus of speeding up the process!
  3. Covered dishes prevent the air from circulating around the food, so keep the time and temperature the same.
  4. Cookie sheets without sides allow the air to circulate better. Similarly, pans with low sides will allow air to circulate better.
  5. Parchment paper is light so it needs to be weighted down (pie weights work well for this). A silicone mat is a better option for convection ovens.

CES 2013 Rumors

Consumer Electronics Show- CES

Every January, thousands of people flock to Las Vegas for one of our favorite events of the year: the world’s largest Consumer Electronics Tradeshow (CES). This is when brands like LG and Samsung unveil their latest technologies and product lines to the public. This year CES is taking place from January 8-11, and rumors are already circulating!

Here are some rumors on what several of our favorite brands might unveil:


LG announced their new line of televisions and home theater products on Christmas Day, which was a nice surprise. Some of their new offerings include:

  1. 4 new soundbars (Compare to current models here.)
    1. 3 of these models offer built-in Bluetooth and a wireless subwoofer.
    2. 2 of these models come in a larger size, designed to complement 47-inch TVs.
  2. Blu-ray home-theater-in-a-box systems
    1. All new models feature built-in Wi-Fi and LG’s Full Smart TV suite of apps
    2. 3 new Blu-ray models (Compare to current models here.)
    3. 2 of these new models feature a “private sound mode,” which allows you to listen to the audio of your Blu-ray player via an app on your smartphone.
  3. New TVs (Compare to current models here.)
    1. LED backlights in entire LCD range (replacing CCFL backlights)
    2. Upgraded Magic Motion remote featuring “natural” voice recognition, dual-core processors, and more
    3. Enhanced home dashboard with custom folders
    4. Improved sharing with devices like smartphones and tablet


Samsung Transparent TV

Unlike LG, Samsung has been vague on the details of their new product line. In a blog post the other day, Samsung posted an image of a television that’s sitting vertically instead of horizontally. The set appears to be transparent, letting viewers see the background behind it.

Samsung had only this to say about the set: “A true innovation of TV design is coming up with an unprecedented new TV shape and timeless gallery design.”

Rumors regarding this new television have been circulating the web. Will it be a transparent TV? Or maybe one that shows programs in portrait mode instead of landscape? Or will it be a flexible TV?

We’ll just have to wait until next week to see. (Compare to current Samsung models here.)


Westinghouse is rumored to release UHD TV sets ranging from 50” to 110” with a resolution of 3840x2160.

(Compare to current models here.)

It will be interesting to see how many of these predictions come true. What would you like to see introduced at CES this year?

  1. LG's 2013 home theater line doubles down on sound bars, Bluetooth speakers
  2. Westinghouse Preparing Budget Hultra-HD TVs for CES 2013
  3. Samsung's New TV Design Teaser for CES 2013

With Christmas and New Year’s just around the corner, last-minute holiday shoppers are scrambling to find the perfect gift for everyone on their list. Electronics and small appliances make great gifts for everyone in your life. 

For the music lover…

Between smart phones, tablets, and MP3 players, headphones and portable speakers are an essential for pretty much anyone. BiGR Over-the-Ear headphones Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

  1. In-ear headphones:  In-ear headphones are an option that is portable and affordable—perfect for the music lover who is always on the go. The House of Marley Smile Jamaica in-ear headphones are an option that comes in a variety of colors.
  2. Over-the-ear headphones: Another great headphone option is over-the-ear headphones. Baseball lovers will support their favorite team in style with BiGR Over-The-Ear headphones.These headphones not only come with a variety of team logos, but they also feature a built-in answer button and microphone, making them perfect for people who can’t put down their smart phone.
  3. Music  system: A slightly different option for music lovers is a portable music system. The Sonos All-in-One Wireless Music System Play 3 or Play 5 allows you to stream your entire music library and radio stations in several rooms at once, streaming through your home wireless network.

For the TV watcher…

Whether someone on your list is addicted to soap operas, sports, or reality TV, a brand-new television or television accessory makes a great gift for a variety of people. Toshiba 32c120 720p LCD TV

  1. Televisions: For a big-ticket item, you can’t go wrong with a quality television. LCD televisions like the Toshiba 32C120 are slightly less expensive, while LED televisions like the Sansui SLED3228 have richer colors, and plasmas like the Panasonic TCP50U50 offer the richest color palette and best viewing angles of all.
  2. Blu-ray players: Maybe the movie lover on your list has the perfect television already, or you’re looking for a more affordable option. Blu-ray players like the LG BP620 or Sharp BDAMS20 are a great gift option. Because Blu-ray discs are capable of storing more information than DVDs, they offer superior image and sound quality, as well as more room for special features.
  3. Accessories: Someone who owns a 3D television will appreciate an extra pair or two of 3D glasses like the Samsung SSG4100GB, while just about anyone on your list would appreciate a universal remote to simplify TV watching.

For the foodie...

If someone in your life loves food, a small kitchen appliance can make a unique and thoughtful gift.

  1. Wine: An electric wine chiller or warmer is a great gift for any wine lover on your list. The WaringWaring Pro SCM100 Snow Cone Maker Pro RPC175WS is an affordable option that chills or warms a bottle of wine to its optimal serving temperature within minutes.
  2. Coffee: Who doesn’t like a fresh cup of coffee to kickstart their morning? A programmable coffee or espresso maker like the Cuisinart DCC-1200 makes a great gift option.
  3. Ice cream makers: Kids and adults alike will love to make something sweet with an ice cream maker like the Cuisinart ICE-21R or a snow cone maker like the Waring Pro SCM100.

Home Appliances Now at Paul's TV.

In the past two months, a lot has changed at Paul’s TV. One change has been major….MAJOR Appliances! Paul's TV is proud to expand our product mix to include affordable home appliances from top manufacturers, like Electrolux, Frigidaire, and Samsung.


Stainless steel refrigerator with bottom freezerFrench Door, Side-By-Side, even full refrigerators with matching freezers are just a few of the large appliance options that can be found at Paul’s TV. Choose from classic colors such as white and black, or sleek and modern with stainless steel. We even have refrigerators with LCD touch screens and door alarms; no more holding the door open trying to set the temperature or check the filter, all of that can be done from the external touch screen. Tired of the kids leaving the refrigerator door open and allowing food to spoil, many of these refrigerators will include an alarm that sounds to let you know the door has been left ajar.

Washers and Dryers

Front-loading washing machine in whiteOur washers and dryers include top-load, front-load, gas and electric with features galore. Many of our washer and dryers can be stacked to save space and reduce their footprint. Another great feature, which will help reduce the spread of germs, is the sanitization feature you’ll notice on a lot of our washers and dryers. My personal favorite of these washers and dryers are their moisture and soil sensing technology. Some washers and dryers are equipped with sensors to determine the drying time needed based on the amount of moisture in your clothes or the wash time needed based on the soil on your clothes; one of the neat energy-saving features.

Stoves, Ranges, & Ovens

Stove, range, oven combination with a black cooktopCreate the kitchen of your dreams with dual or single, electric, gas, or induction stoves and ranges; the latest in cooking technology can be found here. Choose from options that incorporate the latest convection and self-cleaning technology. We offer complete ranges or you can go for a simple cooktop, in-wall oven or a stand-alone warming drawer; the selection is endless. If you go for that “space-age” induction range, don’t forget the proper pots and pans.

Dishwashers and Microwaves

Stand alone microwave oven in black and silverThe smallest of the major appliances and a wide array of sizes and colors to compliment any kitchen. Microwaves that are capable of cooking an entire holiday meal and a dishwasher that will wash all the dishes without having to rinse them first.

For years we’ve been your experts and “go-to” guys for home entertainment, now we’re your “go-to” guys for home electronics. What’s your favorite feature on your home appliances?
