Gas oven "quick bake" feature

Our gas oven has a "quick bake" feature that starts afan inside the oven. Do I want to use this when baking bread or not?

Thanks for any replies.

I can only guess that the quick bake is like a convection mode. Bread is fine when baked with the fan on, but it only speeds the bake time by approx ten percent. If you have a use and care manual for your oven, read what it says about that feature. If you don't have one, visit the company's website; most manuls can be found online. Hope this helps.
