Disclosed is an oven which may or may not be incorporated in a domestic cooking range. The oven is characterized by the presence of a fan inset in one side wall of the oven. A plate having upper and lower slots approximately aligned with the conventionally located upper and lower oven heating elements overlies the fan. The slots or openings in the plate provide discharge apertures for the fan so that the air streams from the fan sweep past the heating elements to provide forced circulation or "convected" mode operation. Since the oven heating elements are conventionally located, the oven may be operated in the conventional, radiant mode by halting operation of the fan. The oven is thus easily convertible to either radiant or convection mode of operation.
