Yes and no. It cook evenly food needs rotated, a turntable will eliminate the need of rotating 1/2 way through the cooking. I've had both, and I vastly prefer the one with turntable. A major problem with microwaved food is heating unevenly. A turntable virtually eliminates the problem. Also- put a saucer in your microwave, and put the plate or microwave dish on top of it. It will heat more quickly, and more evenly, because the waves can enter the food from the bottom as well as top & sides.

Yes, this Jenn Air microwave oven does have a turntable for you to place food on.

Microwave energy is a form of electromagnetic energy. However, a microwave oven, which is also referred to as a microwave, can have mechanical parts, such as a turntable, a convection fan, or a mechanical timer.

Yes, there is a turntable inside of the microwave so the food will be cooked evenly.

This probably refers to a turntable inside a microwave oven.

This Microwave Oven does have a turntable inside. The dimensions of the turntable are 10 3/4 inches.

The turntable in a microwave oven is driven by an alternating current motor which may start in either direction at random and continues to travel in that direction until stopping. The reason for using a turntable in a microwave oven is that the microwave energy is not evenly distributed across the oven. The turntable allows the food to receive an equal amount of energy by turning across the uneven microwave field. The microwave energy is turned to heat within the food. It actually does not matter in which direction the turntable rotates in order to evenly cook the food.

The difference is in the features. A regular microwave only features the normal microwave functions. However, a convection microwave oven also has a built-in convection oven in it.

While microwave technology allows you to cook food quickly, the white Whirlpool GH 7208XRQ convection oven includes microwave as one of its features of convection, microwave, steamer, and oven; therefore essentially making the convection oven a more functional kitchen appliance.

In a convection and in a conventional oven yes. NOT in a microwave oven. Sure as long as it is not a microwave oven.

The turntable in a wirowave oven is there to rotate the food so that it is heated evenly, if the turntable was not there, food would be heated more on one side than the other.

convection heats your food in a microwave oven because it heats the fluids and water in the food to gradually cook it

I bought a microwave-convection oven at Sears, but you can find them at any good-sized appliance store.

According to a document from the Sharp Corporation (refer to the link below; n.b., it is a huge PDF document!): "1966 R-600 Turntable Microwave Oven Sharp developed the world's first microwave oven to use a turntable, introducing it as Japan's first consumer model."

Yes you can, in a standard conventional or convection oven but not in a microwave oven.

You can make a pizza or cake in your microwave oven without a convection mode, but the results may not be as desirable.

What you have is a microwave oven that cooks like a conventional convection oven. It uses fans to distribute the heat more effectively than a regular microwave. The cooking times will be far less than a normal convection oven. Myself I like some things cooked slowly and others fast. For fast cooking I'll stick with a regular microwave and for the other stuff a regular convection oven. That's just my opinion other folks may have better ideas.

Yes this has a convection cooking control feature as well as a durable stainless steel finish.

All microwave ovens have turn table. The heating in microwave takes place due to radiations and for getting uniform heating turn table is necessary. The fan helps in uniform distribution of heat which means the oven with fan for air convection will give better results.

Your microwave oven has "combination" features, most likely a combination of microwave and convection cooking. Consult the user manual for your specific oven to find out how to use these features.

yes but only in convection mode setting..NOT to be used in microwave setting

A convection and microwave combination oven is an appliance that combines the functions of both units in just one piece of equipment. This appliance will look much like a microwave oven, but will have conventional resistance (electric) heating elements in it as well as the little fan to provide the convection. This unit will function in either capacity, and about the only drawback is that the convection oven has a limited volume. Bon appรฉtit!

A turntable in a microwave oven rotates the food being warmed or cooked, with evenness of heating being the aim. A microwave oven is a sealed box, a Faraday cage, into which microwaves--nonionizing radiation of about 2.45 GHz frequency--are injected. The microwaves are generated by a magnetron and fed into the box at only one point via a waveguide. So better ovens will use a microwave stirrer, a turntable, or both to help the microwaves more evenly reach the food.

A microwave oven is an electrical appliance. About the only simple machine involved might be the turntable, which is a wheel and axle, and it could be argued that the door is a lever.
