In a convection oven hot air is pushed through fans to circulate heat around the food. This cooks the food quickly and evenly. When compared to a standard oven, food cooks faster in a convection oven. Restaurants often cook bacon in their convection ovens. It makes it easier to cook a large batch of bacon, without the fuss of turning individual pieces.

Cook Bacon in a Convection Oven

Step 1

Set the convection oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Line a cookie sheet or sheet pan with parchment paper. If you do not have parchment paper, spray the sheet with non-stick pan spray. Do not line the sheet with foil, as the cooked bacon will stick to the paper.

Step 3

Lay the bacon strips across the pan in a single layer. Do not overlap edges. Lay flat.

Step 4

Place the pan in the oven on the center of the center rack. Cook for about ten minutes.

Step 5

Remove the cooked bacon from the pan and lay on sheets of paper towel, to absorb the grease before serving.
