Fundamentally Dumb Question
Been baking regularly for a year or so. My basic question regards oven baking mode. When baking basic bread (FWSY), should I use the convection mode on the oven or simple bake? Convection moves the air around for an even temperature and I use it for baking when using containers with a lid like a Dutch Oven. But I usually switch to the Bake mode when baking on pans w/o a cover. Will the convection mode dry the bread too much? Which is preferred when following a recipe that just says "bake at xxx F for so many minutes? I like crusty bread, FWIW.
