Is it the same temperature for a fan assisted oven? Thanks. OK, we don't have a fan oven but having asked around we are told that if you are using a fan oven reduce the cooking temperature by 20C less than the recipe states and keep the same cooking time. We can't promise this but hope the advice helps. The Cookit Team
