We purchased this GE Advantium Microwave Speedcook Oven to replace an old regular GE Profile Microwave and also remove a little convection oven we kept on the countertop - to avoid firing up the big oven during hot months. This meets the need well.Will have to report back on overall dependability and longevity of the unit as have heard mixed reviews. Our old GE died after 10 years so hope this one last at least that long. As for some review information worth calling out:1. SpeedcookThis feature is taking some getting used to be we seem to like it. It does cook faster, heats well, crisp things, and the menus that are included already have most foods in them or it is easy to customize an entry. You basically set how long to use upper lamp, lower, and microwave. Results have been good. It does remind you when to use the metal tray (for cooking with lights/convection) versus the glass tray (when just microwaving). Only pain is swapping them frequently if you switch a lot.2. ConvectionHave used this the least but seems to work ok, not as good as a full size oven though. It preheats pretty quickly still compared to a regular full size oven.3. Noise LevelThe microwave and fans are pretty quiet overall - compared to our old one a little quieter and has pretty good suction. We vent upwards out of the house. You do hear clicking on and off when speed cooking as the lights cycle on and off and microwave cycles but it is just a little noise also.4. Stainless InteriorThis seems required since the thing gets really hot inside but already are seeing little spots here and there due to oil popping or food sizzling. Very hard to clean up aftwards and it'll never look perfect after you use this oven for a while - seem like it'll start to always look pretty dirty after years of use.5. InstallWe installed this ourself pretty easily but but do be aware of a few things. It can sit on a previous same size GE mounting bracket so no need to install the new one. Finally, it comes with a mounting bracket literally screwed on to the back of the oven already that you need to take off before mounting - not in instruction manual and looks like part of the oven.6. EnergyThis is NOT an energy efficient appliance at all when speed cooking using like 2000 watts sometimes. Supposedly the time savings make up for that though.Overall though if you don't mind the pretty big increase over a regular microwave with convection the speed cook feature is pretty much worth it. Adds additional use to the oven. Oh, and the inside capacity of this thing really is pretty big - a 11x13 casserole dish really does fit pretty easily.Enjoy.

This a good microwave. Only issue we have is that the vent is worthless. Seems to pull more air in from the vent above the door then from the vents below the microwave. We rechecked all ducting and installation per the installation instructions with no issues, yet it still fails to draw much air into the lower vents. We ended up taping over the vent above the door to force the fan to draw the air from the lower vents which helped. Seems to me that if you spend a lot of money for a microwave it should be the best at everything it does. Contacted customer service, which responded promptly, but said that if the technician that was sent out could not find anything wrong with the microwave that I would have to pay for the service call.

Great oven, but very hard to clean
from Acton, MA, United States
I have this appliance for 3 month. It is very good, a lot of cooking options, but suggested timing is not enough to cook. Have to run for the second cycle. It has perforation on the bottom and it almost impossible to clean spillage

When we moved into our new place, the first thing I noticed lacking was a GE Advantium microwave-convection oven. I immediately replaced the installed microwave for my Advantium. I have used it in the past, and it never fails me. I can bake in shorter amounts of time than the regular stove convection oven and save time for quick meals. Also, the Advantium does not heat up the kitchen in mild weather San Diego. It is perfect for the two of us now that we are empty nesters, since we now have a choice of using the Advantium or stove microwave for big meals. I love my Advantium!
Looks great is great.

Speed cook was great. Cooked my first toasted cheese sandwich, it came out great without me watching and free of pan grease. Looking forward to other speed cook items.

Purchased it a week ago and have used most features and all work very good. Speedcook works very fast.
Not too bright!
from Daphne, Al
We love the features of this oven, and have had it over 8 years. The biggest problem is that the bright lighting it cooks with kept burning out prematurely, and GE's repairman followed the tech guide from GE and blocked off the main light that allowed us to see the food during the heating process. That bright light was the main reason we first got the oven and we feel a bit cheated that GE never came up with a fix, only a band aid. BTW, the repairman is not at fault, he is actually a good employee, and following orders from the top. Our entire kitchen is nothing but GE Profile products.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love this microwave convection oven. Great for a single person easy to use cuts cooking times more convenient to cook small portions
Does it all!
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
We purchased this for our new home. We are learning the endless options for cooking. We love that you can convection, speed and microwave cook all in the one unit. Speed cooking has brought a whole new way to cook into our family lifestyle. We love it
You only need one!
from Spokane Valley, WA, United States
We are very happy with this microwave. You can bake, broil and microwave in the same appliance!
What an excellent product.
from Spearfish SD
I have moved from a previous home that we had purchased and installed a 240v Advantium. When we purchased our new home we HAD to have another. This time we purchased the 120v (for sake of convenient power outlet). We absolutely love this product! My wife hated the "standard" microwave" and uses the speed cook/microwave/convection of the Advantium at her ease and finger tip decision. Why was this product discontinuued from manufacture?? When we sold our previous home, buyers, realtors and lookers never had a clue of what the Advantium was. They thought only a "microwave" - - until they realized what the Advantium was. We loved BOTH the 240v & 120v appliance!
