Let’s talk convection ovens for a moment.  The true measure of a good convection oven is how evenly the oven cooks at a set temperature.   Southbend ovens feature a soft heat mixing zone technology that allows hot air to be mixed with cooler air to produce tempered air.  This ensures even baking and cooling!  A few other features that set their ovens apart:
