We bought this six weeks ago and like most all features except the microwave time function: It forces you to only select in 15 second segments, nothing less. More selections in 5-second intervals would be better. All choices (for both ovens) are made through a dial, which gets constant use -- for both the micro and oven -- and I can guess this may be the first part to wear out. I was surprised the convention oven does not provide any other choices than 250 degrees....more options would be much better to keep food warm (some require less heat! Again, more choices would be better, like 150, 180, 200, 220 degrees). The lower oven racks are coated and slide easily, especially the middle one on a sliding support! You have to be careful casserole dishes don't come flying out, but it is very easy to use. The racks do have a new "anchor" system that takes effort to learn how to get in and out; I find these difficult because of the twisted end piece which anchors both sides of each rack. It was a nice surprise to find three oven racks, adjusting them is a challenge though due to the design of the racks.. The oven light dims when you shut the door, a nice feature to check positioning. The unit looks great, so nice and clean and exactly fits the old spot! Matching the old footprint was critical, the price incentive made it doable. Clock: We lost power recently and the clock function keeps going out now. How do we correct? Tapping the Start button brings it back, but it eventually goes out. Before, it remained on for quick reference. All in all, a worthwhile investment that adds to the value of our kitchen and our home (we recently upgraded all appliances).

The features are great benefits. There is lots of room in the oven and microwave. Everything cooks evenly and the microwave cooks great. It was easy to install. Overall, the product seems very solid. The two most common complaints i've heard are the dial, and the sound of the beeping. The dial is a little strange to get used to but if it means less buttons taking up space and more space for the microwave and oven, then i'm on board with it. The beeping sound that it makes when the microwave or oven is done is way too quiet. It frustrates me when i can't hear it go off. It's particularly annoying because when the microwave finishes, the fan is still going making it sound as if it's still running. Freaked me out a few times cause i though my food was still cooking after it beeped and i didn't hear it. Here are my additional complaints. It's fancy having a microwave door feel like a double oven because it folds down instead of swings out, but in this case GE chose design over functionality. I would say that if you are about 5' tall, do not consider the recommended height from the floor to access two-handed items inside the microwave comfortably. I have the oven 5" higher than the recommended height because that's how it worked with my cabinet. I'm 5'8" and it's almost awkward with the arms trying to reach over the door. Since the door swings down, not only does it cause your body to be further away and harder to reach in, but you may need both your arms to take out an item, so you then have to pull the item closer to you, step back, then turn away. Also, the drop down door is also harder to close and less convenient to close than a swing out door. A swing out door it's just the flick of a finger. The fan in the oven makes a humming/vibrating noise. When i have the convection fan running. I sounds loud when it cycles off and on. so loud i can hear it hum out of the kitchen and down the hallway. Ironic thing is that i bought a side-by-side GE fridge a few years ago and the same thing happened with the fan in the freezer. it was too loud and eventually had a service guy come out and replace the fan motor. Still is loud once in a blue moon. The most crucial appliance of the kitchen by the most experienced appliance manufacture shouldn't still be struggling with these small usability issues.

Slow to heat and wastes energy
from North Carolina, United States
The oven is attractive and versatile because it can microwave, convection bake, and regular bake. The bad news is it not energy efficient. No matter what setting is used (microwave, oven or convection) when the cycle is done a cooling fan begins to run; it can run as long as fifteen minutes to cool down the appliance. I would prefer to just open the door to let out the heat or leave the door closed and let the oven gradually cool down over several hours. Further, the convection and regular ovens cook very slowly, approximately 25% slower than the previous oven.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Versatile cooking options
Before my previous built-in microwave/oven combo broke, I did not realize that a convection oven could be combined with a microwave in the same device. The knob+button technology is intuitive and the design attractive. Both small and large ovens cook evenly but the small one is an excellent option for cooking projects that I used to do in a microwave to save time and energy.
Improved design and features
from Gilford, NH, United States
I just had my new wall oven/microwave combination appliance installed and I am enjoying it's new features and design. The new one replaced an older version of the same combination by GE and this newer, sleeker design is very eye catching and appealing. I have used both the oven and microwave and, so far, it works great and is much quieter than my old convection oven. I would highly recommend it!

I like the Microwave and small convection oven together
Excellent Performance, Appearance and Reliability
from Catonsville, MD, United States
Both the microwave and the conventional oven perform extremely well. The microwave provides far better results than any other microwave I have used, with programmed options that perform extremely well. The capacity is large, making it far more versatile as both a convection and microwave oven. The conventional oven does an excellent job roasting, broiling and baking. I have been extremely pleased with the performance of the sensor probe. It is extremely accurate, and gives me a degree of control over roasting I did not have with my old oven. I like the fact that broiling occurs with the oven door closed, keeping the kitchen cooler, cleaner and less smoky. Both ovens work very well as convection ovens. Neither seems to get overly dirty, and both clean easily. The controls are fairly intuitive, and I adapted to them easily. I have been extremely happy with all aspects of the oven and expect to enjoy it for years to come.
from Bradenton, FL, United States
I had this installed 2 weeks ago. It would not turn on and smelled up the whole house with a burning smell. I could not get a tech to check it for a week. So I got to stare at my pretty new oven without touching. The tech found it was set to power save mode andhe corrected it. Also warned us not to do the Sabbath mode because it will not turn on then. I was told I needed to do a self clean or I will smell something burning every time I use unit until the coating has burned off. All windows & doors have to be open for 4 hours. Well with work schedule and household animals, we haven't done it. GE tech was very nice & helpful.
Beautiful and functional!
from Salem, NY, United States
Everything I was looking for in a wall unit! Ease of operation, multifunction, and does not heat the room. Highly recommend!
So happy with this new unit! Love all the different options it gives you for cooking in each oven. It is so user friendly and such a sleek design. It looks great in my kitchen.
