It will be enough just a couple of times to try to cook food in the convection oven to appreciate all the advantages of this very clever kitchen wizard.

Before you start cooking in the convection oven for the first time, it is imperative that it “idle” for a certain time to warm up, i.e. without product loaded into the flask. In models endowed with electronic control, this is done using the “Warm up” button (or similar), and a model having mechanical control can be started on the “idle cycle” by setting the maximum temperature for 10 minutes.

To do cooking in the convection oven, you can use absolutely any utensils that you have in the house, except perhaps plastic and wooden. Pans, pots, baking dishes, glass and ceramic dishes - all this is ideal for use in convection ovens. In aerogrill, in contrast to the same microwave, there are no wave emitters, for this reason you can safely start cooking in metal cookware in aerogrill.

Cooking in aerogrill can be completely different. It is possible to boil, bake, fry, simmer foods in it: one it can replace with itself an entire army of household appliances. To cook food in the convection oven, choose the required temperature, speed and time of work. There are countless recipes for a variety of dishes prepared in aerogrill.

For example, a very accessible and incredibly simple recipe for cooking baked poultry in aerogrill. You can take the chicken, rub it to taste with spices or pickle in your favorite marinade, then place it on the upper grill of the air grill, setting a high speed and maximum temperature. A small-sized chicken will be ready in about 40 minutes.

In conveying oven, you can cook pastries: muffins, biscuits, puff pastries, etc. The secret of achieving with the help of aerogrill successful baking is very simple: the first twenty minutes pastries should be covered with foil. As the 20 minutes expire, the foil can be safely removed and then baked to a state of readiness. For example, a biscuit in convection oven will be ready in about 40 minutes (minimum speed, temperature 200 ° C).

Many of the drawbacks of aerogrill often include an unnecessarily long cooking time, the risk at the end of cooking to get almost a half-baked dish. For this reason, in order to cook everything in the convection oven correctly, it should be remembered that several small portions of the dish will be cooked much faster than one large portion, and therefore try to use the portion of the dishes. For example, three 0.5-liter pots of soup will be ready in thirty to forty minutes, and one 1.5-liter saucepan is cooked for over an hour.

Convection oven - an indispensable tool in any modern kitchen, it has a huge number of truly undeniable merits. Nevertheless, he still cannot replace the usual cooker completely, therefore, it is necessary to use the convection oven not in place of the already traditional kitchen appliances, but only in addition to them.

How to cook in convection oven correctly: 10 tricks

1. Each convection oven has its own "character" and specific qualities, which will have to be fitted. At first, you should carefully look after the prepared dish and adjust the timer readings prescribed in the recipe, under the behavior of your particular device.
2. Cooking is best on the lower or middle grill. There, the product will receive optimal processing and will not turn into a cracker, as may happen on the upper lattice tier. Pork in the convection oven will be the most juicy and soft if you bake it at the lowest level.
3. Products in the convection oven are processed using hot air streams and the risk of overdrying the dish is always very high. That is why experienced cooks recommend that you add some water to a glass flask or to the baking dish itself. So you keep the natural juiciness of all the ingredients and are guaranteed to get a palatable dish.
4. Water added during cooking must be hot. This will speed up the process and save money for the electrician.
5. Rarely place the product directly on the wire rack. It is very difficult then to wash off the pieces of food stuck to the rails. It is better to use a frying pan without a handle or a special baking dish. A breast cooked in a non-stick container in an air-grill will only taste better and you will not have to suffer from cleaning the grill later. Also fit classic pots of heat-resistant ceramics or forms of tempered food glass.
6. Separate dishes, for example, cutlets, can be lightly browned on both sides in a frying pan and only then be brought to full readiness in the convection oven. After this treatment, the dish will be more delicious.
7. In general, without sunflower oil, it is allowed to cook the same foods in the convection oven as in the oven. All other oils can be added significantly less than during cooking on a gas or electric stove. However, it is not possible to completely eliminate the oil. The fact is that it forms a thin film that does not allow the products to dry out and gives the food a brighter, richer taste.

Tip: For those for whom the absence of oil is important (diet, health, etc.), it is recommended to bake the products in foil or food sleeve (at a temperature not exceeding 205 degrees). If the ingredient needs a powerful heat treatment, you should buy a hot-hose for convection oven, which easily withstands high temperatures.

8. For maximum effect, it is better to cook dishes in a convection oven at low fan speed. The most powerful airflow quickly dries the products and leads to the fact that the upper crust burns ugly. If it seems to you that the processing is not fast enough, try to increase the temperature by one step, and leave the fan speed the same. In single-speed convection ovens (high), it makes sense to cook only on the lower grill or use an expansion ring, increasing the internal volume of the bowl.
9. Try not to fill the convection oven to capacity. This worsens air convection and significantly increases the cooking time. The best is considered to be filling at 50-60% and it is desirable not to exceed this figure.
10. The device allows you to smoke fish and meat both hot and cold. Mackerel in aerogrill is very tasty, does not lose its density and does not break into pieces. For proper smoking, the bottom of the unit is filled with alder chips (usually sold in supermarkets in the original packaging), and the product is lubricated with a special smoke composition.

Bird in convection oven

How to cook vegetables

Ordinary potato in aerogrill is baked at a temperature of 210-220 ° C for 30-35 minutes. Pre-tubers need to rinse with water, clean and shallow incise. Then carefully coat with a mixture of salt, olive oil, paprika and black pepper and place on the lower trellised tier for processing.

And in order for your acquaintance and culinary communication with convection ovens to be as pleasant as possible, let us present some recommendations on the use of dishes in convection ovens, summarizing the long-term experience of using convection ovens by Russian hostesses:

* it is better to use dishes that have a high thermal conductivity: non-stick dishes (“Tefal”, “Kalitva”, etc.), aluminum dishes, food-grade silicone (“Horse”, “Milleforme”, “Proflex”) conduct heat very well, thin-walled ceramic dishes and thin-walled glassware from heat-resistant glass, glass-ceramic ware ("Vitroflam", France)

* If you want to speed up the cooking process, it is better to use thin-walled dishes (for example, heat-resistant glass of the Pobeda factory (Tatarstan) or domestic ceramic ware)

* it is better that the diameter of the dish does not exceed 24 cm (especially for baking dishes) - then the hot air flows freely around the flask and evenly affects the dishes from all sides

* it is better to use portion dishes: for example, 3 (or even 4) 0.5-liter pots with soup will cook for 30-40 minutes, and one pan of 1.5 liters (= 3 pots) will cook for more than 1 hour, besides, the contents of each pot can be different - to the taste of every household!

t 180 С, fan speed is low, time depends on the amount of dough.

How to fry patties and small cakes

If you want to fry patties or patties from the batter that will flow through the bars of the grates, we recommend using a steamer, or simply putting foil or baking paper on the grates.

The cooking mode of cutlets: t 235 С, speed - average, time - 20-25 minutes, depends on the quantity.

How to defrost food

Defrosting products in convection ovens can be carried out at t 65 - 80 С and at low fan speed, but not higher, otherwise the product will be prepared and not thawed. When defrosting, you can put the product in a plastic bag so that condensate does not accumulate in the flask. (If you decide to use the bag, defrost to produce at t 65 С) But it is not necessary to do this, it is enough to slightly open the cover of the convection oven with a skewer or stick.

Uneven browning

Foods (pies, patties, vegetables, etc.) are roasted on one side only if the heating element of your convection oven is heated unevenly. In this situation, you need to contact the service center, the address of which must be specified in the warranty card.

What can be cooked in a flask

In the flask you can cook only mulled wine and shot, because only these drinks require “not to bring to a boil, with constant stirring”, the remaining dishes must be warmed up completely. Otherwise, your (soup, cereal, stews, etc.) will be heated unevenly and undercooked.

Principle of operation

The most important thing in aerogrill is the lid. It contains a heating element, a fan and a control panel. A glass flask performs the function of an oven or chamber in an oven: it is in it that dishes are prepared. During the operation of the device, the heater or halogen lamp heats the air in the flask to a predetermined temperature, and the fan creates the necessary circulation.

As a rule, in any convection oven several operating modes. That is why it is possible to cook a variety of dishes in it: soups, different kinds of cereals, pastries, baked meat - in a word, everything that could have been cooked in a Russian oven before. And even a little more: modern models will help you to dry fruits, make canning or smoked products. But for this you need to follow certain rules.

We use the new device correctly

A glass flask is not yet a saucepan, although it is very similar. You do not pour the soup directly into the oven? Before the start of cooking, it is necessary to place a special baking sheet in the convection oven or put a small heat-resistant pan. All necessary accessories are usually included.

Important: if you wish, you can even place several dishes in the convection oven if there is enough space for them.

Set the desired temperature mode, set the time and set the intensity of air circulation. The whole cooking process will be clearly visible: this is the beauty of cooking in the convection oven. After use, do not forget to wash the device immediately.

How different models of aerogrills differ from each other

How are different models of aerogrills?

Before turning to the main topic of the article, let's say a few words about the parameters of aerogrills differ, and comment on them:

  • The volume of the bowl - from 2 to 12 liters. The amount of capacity depends on how much food you can cook at a time - for example, just one steak or a large chicken (duck). For those who live alone and do not receive guests and do not cook for a week right away, a small convection oven will be enough, and there is no sense even to look at models with a bowl less than 7 liters.
  • By the design of the cover - it is removable or hinged. Fans have both options. На наш взгляд, съемная крышка удобнее и безопаснее – вы отставляете ее в сторону и у вас уже нет опасения, что, вынимая или переворачивая пищу, вы обожжетесь о раскаленный нагревательный элемент.
  • По типу управления – механическое и сенсорное. If you do not chase after super-gadgets, but are looking for a reliable, simple unit, then you should know that the mechanics are quite enough to perform the bulk of the aero-grill operations involved.
  • By functionality - simple and multifunctional. with such additional programs as warming up, defrosting, baking (although in simple models this can be done without problems).

Benefits of convection

Convection oven firmly won the love of those who care about their health, but at the same time loves dishes with an appetizing brown crust and tender, melting in the mouth pulp. In this device, all the fat is melted from meat and poultry, and at the same time what unscrupulous manufacturers pump them. All this does not accumulate on the baking sheet (in a frying pan, pan, etc.), soaking back, and flows into the bowl. Provided, of course, that you are cooking on a grid, and not in baking forms or in closed containers.

Let's designate other obvious advantages of aerogrill.


Convection oven quite successfully replaces the oven with grill and convection, toaster and roaster, frying pan, steamer, skewer, smokehouse, drying for fruits and vegetables, sterilizer cans, yogurt maker and microwave. He bakes and cooks, cooks soups, has the effect of a Russian stove, defrosts and warms foods. And at the same time it takes much less space than almost each of the above units, and if you consider that one convection oven is able to cope with the tasks facing several appliances, then if it is present, you significantly save kitchen space.

No need for special dishes

In the convection oven you can cook in any dish, except wooden and plastic. Particularly successful are the dishes in clay pots - if you make porridge, soups, or roasts in them, you get the impression that they were taken out of a real stove. By the way, for frying and roasting meat, poultry and fish, separate dishes are generally not needed - enough lattices, skewers and tripods, which are already included in the kit.

Minimal or low oil consumption

You do not need oil for cooking products in the convection oven, and if you want to add it, for example, to create a very crisp crust or to flavor an oil-herbal mixture, you can just lightly smear the chicken, fish or chop with a silicone brush. So you get absolutely healthy and healthy food.

Ease of cooking

When cooking in the convection oven, the products practically do not burn (the main thing is to set the temperature and time correctly), and the cooking process itself does not require constant presence in the kitchen. In addition, due to the presence of a fan, all dishes are cooked evenly, so there are no unbaked or non-fried places.

For example, those who often make cutlets in breadcrumbs (or buy similar semi-finished products) know how difficult it is to fry them in a frying pan - the breading quickly burns, and in the middle the stuffing remains raw, and the butter needs more than usual. The convection oven perfectly copes with this task, it is only necessary to grease the patties and the pan or the grill with a small amount of butter and bake for 10 minutes on each side. So you get a completely roasted minced and delicious, but not a burnt crust. The same applies to barbecue wings, which in the pan never turn out so tasty and crispy as on the grill.

Time saving

In the presence of a double lattice in the convection oven, you can cook two dishes at once, for example, bake pieces of chicken on the upper plane, and potatoes on the bottom plane. Poultry juice will soak the tubers, so then you only need to sprinkle them with greens, and you get a luxurious side dish. If you do not want to get fat on the potatoes or other vegetables, just swap the ingredients in places.
