Don't use convection for Challah.

I do too, especially when I am baking two trays at a time.
I do see a difference in the challot though, between convection and conventional heat.
The challot baked with convection come out a bit crustier and browner. They also rise a tad higher.
That said, sometimes I prefer a softer crust and slightly denser, moister challah so then I will bake them on conventional heat.
I bake cakes almost exlusively with conventional heat. The top tends to dry out and form a crust with convection.
Bottom line is you have to experiment and know your oven and then decide what you prefer.

Convection is better for everything but you need to adjust down by about 25 degrees if the recipe isn’t meant for a convection oven.
