Radiant Heat

Radiant Heat. In baking, the heat energy that emanates from a heat source, such as a burner flame, electrical heating element, or the heated internal surfaces of the oven chamber (q.v.), and is transmitted through space directly to the point of absorption, i.e., the product being baked. Other means of heat transmission are conduction (q.v.) and convection (q.v.).
