ProBake Convection is a feature in LG ovens that improves multi-rack baking and speeds up preheat times. It also provides a more accurate temperature readout than ordinary electric convection ovens.
Modeled after pro-style ranges, the LG ProBake Convection moved the heating element from the bottom of the oven to the back wall for optimal heat distribution. The adjustment of this heating element provides a multi-rack convection baking experience that offers a consistent and even bake, no matter what rack you place your food on.
In traditional ovens, the preheat cycle can often take a long time. With the ProBake Convection oven, the preheating process takes a few quick minutes. The ProBake uses radiant heat from the back wall of the oven to heat faster than traditional ovens.

What to Consider When Buying an LG ProBake Convection Appliance
The size of your unit will depend on the amount of available cooktop space within your kitchen, and how much oven interior room you want. Luckily the exterior dimensions of most LG slide-in and freestanding ranges are relatively standard. This is so most units can fit flush with the average countertop height and width. The average LG range dimensions are 30 inches wide, 36 inches high, and have a depth of 25 inches.
However, while the exterior may remain standard, the oven interior is an area where you can increase or decrease your cooking capacity depending on the size of the LG ProBake Convection oven you chose. Sam's Club sells the following LG ProBake Convection capacity oven sizes in:
6.3 cu ft.
6.9 cu ft.
7.3 cu ft.

What Features Come with LG ProBake Convection Ovens?
ProBake Convection: A convection oven has heating elements in the top and bottom of the oven. However, the ProBake Convection developed a heating element around the convection fan, which offers even baking results on every rack, every time.

Either way, this LG ProBake range offers optimal heat distribution with both traditional and convection settings. This provides the user with an option to switch between either traditional or convection heat.
Fast Boiling Burner: This feature offers intense heat for precise control. It quickly transitions from warm to high heat in minutes for quick cooking.
EasyClean: The LG EasyClean is a new oven-cleaning feature designed to clean the inside of your oven without harsh chemicals. The EasyClean process uses low temperatures to loosen leftover grime before a hand-cleaning with a wet towel finishes the job. This is a fast oven-cleaning feature which takes three steps, does not produce chemical fumes or high heat and leaves behind a spotless oven.
Largest Capacity Oven/Double-Oven: Oven capacity for the LG ProBake are 6.3 cu ft., 6.9 cu ft., 7.3 cu ft. Even the smallest single oven offers multi-rack convection baking, and the double-oven version can cook meals at different temperatures, with dishes cooking separately on the bottom of the oven and also on the top.
Slide-In-Range/Freestanding Range: The LG ProBake Convection oven offers two models for your kitchen design. The freestanding unit pushes up against a back wall and has the control panel in the back. The slide-in-range has the control panel in the front and offers a seamless cooktop look within your counter.
