Frying and Sauteeing Foods

Frying food is cooking in hot fat or oil until it is browned on all sides and cooked through. Frying is usually done in a shallow skillet. Sauteing is a dry heat cooking method. The pan is very hot with just a small amount of oil or fat, and the food cooks or browns quickly.

Is food cooking in a frying pan convection?

This is a more complicated question than you might expect.

There are three basic way heat moves, convection, radiation, and conduction. Convection moves heat around by the rising and falling (currents) of some medium like air or water. The currents form, because heated material (in general) is less dense than cooler material. Therefore, convection *never* happens in the absence of gravity.

Radiation is always in the form of light, specifically infrared. The warmth you feel when sunlight touches your skin is this kind heat.

Lastly, there's conduction where heat moves from one thing to another by contact.

Frying pan cooking (dry) primarily uses conduction, but radiation and convection do play roles. Frying pan cooking (with oil) primarily uses convection, but conduction is involved if the food sticks to the bottom.
