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.
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:

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:
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?

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.
French 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
Our 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
Create 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
The 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.
Whether you’re looking to build a new home or update your outdated appliances, Paul’s TV is striving to be your one-stop shop and become a name in your household.
