The invention resides in an oven which is capable of recirculating air in a laminar pattern around food stuff supported within the oven cavity. The heating elements of the oven are disposed at the lower portion of the oven with the food stuff being supported thereabove. Air which is drawn in by an impeller at the top of the cavity is driven downwardly through a duct and redirected below the food and across heating element(s) and thereafter redirected upward in a recirculating pattern to effect uniform cooking of the food stuff located therein.
