Hello folks:

We have been looking to replace our almost-40 year old GE wall oven with a new model.

We are trying to decide between the GE JKP25 nonconvectional & JK915 convectional models.

Although we use our oven almost every day, there are just two of us and we don't do any big cooking projects.

Anyone have any opinions to share re whether we should spend the extra money for the convectional model?

Thanks in advance to all respondents.

Like was mentioned, you can still cook without the convection on a convection oven....but no way possible to cook with convection on a non-convection oven ;)

My wife would divorce me if I where to get rid of our convection oven! We started out with a microwave with the convection and liked it so much we got it in our free standing range as well.

Convection cooking has a small fan that helps to circulate the hot air around rather thna use natural air movement inside the oven, with convection things cook approx 5-10% faster and you can usualy turn the oven down 25ºF from what the recipy says.

Don't get caught up in that "cook 3 pans at the same time" routine that most sales people say....I ( we ) found that normally isn't the case. Two cookie sheets at a time works well.

Hope something here helps,

I would think your most pressing concern might be finding a replacement which will fit *into the cutout* the original one fits into... unless you're planning on doing a cabinet remodel at the same time?
