The subject may be a bit misleading. My real question is a bit more complex.

Our relatively new KitchenAid oven offers six primary modes of operation:

Regular: Bake, Broil, Roast
Convection: Bake, Broil, Roast

The oven itself has 3 heating elements in the bottom, back, and top.

So far as I can tell:
Bake: only the bottom element is used.
Broil: top & bottom elements are used
Roast: all three elements are used.

What's not clear to me is this: In convection mode, does this really make a difference?
