Working so intently so early, though, sent the day into an odd pattern. I did make pumpkin pie without the crust. We have a metal rack from our old convection-cum-microwave oven that is half the height of the one that came with this oven. I was able to have a pie on each rack and, once i finished reading the baking instructions (oh, reduce temperature and bake 50 min more!) i was able to have both pies baked.
Only rarely do i need more space in the convection oven. Nonetheless, demonstrating that two racks will work just fine is a delight.
