Using Oil in the Countertop Convection Oven
There is little need to use oil in the Countertop Convection Oven. The food will cook without needing any oil. Any fat in the meat will drip down to the bottom of the glass bowl, away from the meat and help to create a healthy meal.
If I wish to add oil for flavour, I prefer to use an Olive Oil Sprayer. This reduces the amount of oil needed. I have two – for olive oil and garlic oil. I’m considering getting another couple for chili oil and a mix of oil and vinegar.
If the food is covered in a sticky marinade or I think it might stick to the racks, I will spray the racks to prevent it.
I do use oil in some marinades however it’s not necessary for cooking the meat, it’s for flavour.
Using oil in the countertop convection oven is really a personal preference. If you want to cook food with it, you can. It doesn’t smoke and may help with the cooking. If you don’t want to use Oil, simply don’t. The food will cook without it.
Depending on what you prefer, it’s up to you. If you want to get an olive oil sprayer like I use, they are available at Amazon.
