Conventional microwaves work by emitting energy waves from the 'microwave' range on the electromagnetic spectrum. these waves are emitted by the magnetron and bounce randomly around inside the microwave until the come in contact with the food. the energy is transferred into the food and causes the water molecules to become excited and move around inside the food. this movement cause heat to be generated, effectively cooking the food. A convection microwave solves this problem by 'heating up' the entire inside of the microwave, and cooks the food this way. if the user was trying to bake a cake, the microwaves emitted by a regular microwave would speed the cooking process too much, and the resulting cake would not be cooked as intended.
