You're not going to bake a birthday cake in a microwave, but convection makes cookies possible.
Most microwaves are lousy at baking. But models that include a convection heating element can offer a little more help in the kitchen. True convection elements include a heating element with a fan, and can brown food quickly. We even tested microwaves with cookies, and found that many of them did almost as well as a conventional oven with baking.
If you're not sure about a recipe, higher-end microwaves feature controls that automatically select the right temperature for cooking with convection.
