Turn conventional oven into convection oven with this

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

There is a store in my area called Tuesday Mornings. It has upscale merchandise discounted up to 60%. I bought a Nordic Ware Oven Aire. It is a very HEAVY metal wind up fan that sits on the oven rack and circulates the heat. The fan runs over an hour with about 30 cranks of the handle. The purpose of the thing is to make any oven a convection oven. I have used it for about a month and it really does work. The cooking time is less and it takes less time to preheat the oven. I think it will be useful for using in the BarBQue for baking. I paid $14.95 for it marked down from $49.95. The box is labeled "as seen on TV". Anyone have one?

Thanks for the hot tip. We have Tuesday Morning here also. I will go check them out.

Carol...Never heard of that store here on the Mid-Atlantic, but this product sounds like it might hold some promise for various uses. IF problems continue into the summer and elec. is either now and then or not at all...it might be nice to have a wind-up fan just to move the air around. Is there any info. you might be able to give like a toll free # or something? Thanks ahead.

This is not a fast moving fan, but it will circulate air in a small space. On the instruction sheet it says: If you would like more information on Nordic Ware products, please write us at: Nordic Ware, P.O. Box 16132 Mpls. MN 55416 There is web site: http://www.nordicware.com/ That might have a toll free number. I haven't looked at the site yet. I immediately thought of how useful this could be and for $15, I could not go wrong. I don't think I would have paid $50 for it though.

Thanks for the reply Carol. I'm surprised noone seems to have come up with a crank generated fan. IF prob. with utilities may exist in summer of 2000 you'd think someone would have thought of it. There were lots of deaths due to the extreme heat this past summer. Oh well. Thanks again.

I think it would be useful for keeping air moving over whatever you're dehydrating. Must remember to at least buy a small battery operated fan for that.
