Comments about GE Profile Advantium 240 Over The Range Black Microwave Oven:
We had an older version of this in our previous house and just installed this model in our current house. (Obviously we found it worth the premium over a standard microwave.)This is not like any other microwave on the market. Yes, it does everything a standard microwave does and it does them really well. For example, the "reheat" setting has options for soup, plate of food, beverage, etc. The sensors work really well to get each food to just the right temperature. But the magic of this machine is its ability to essentially bake like an oven, without the need to preheat. Everything cooked on its black pans turns out just like it was in a regular oven - pizza, chicken nuggets, French fries, fish fillets, lean pockets, you name it. It is also perfect for reheating when you want the food to stay crispy, not get soggy like in a normal microwave. We use it to heat baguettes and other bread all the time and it comes out perfect, not like it would in a normal microwave. My only complaint is the flip side of what I love about it - because it has so many functions and features, it takes a while to learn where to go on the controls to do what you want to do. In this model I can tell they tried to simplify it from the precious model we had, but it still isn't intuitive.One note on installation... Putting the unit in was pretty straightforward but did require two people as the unit is quite heavy. However, it does require a heavy duty outlet like the one a stove or dryer plugs into. We had to have an electrician add this for us as our old microwave had a simple three prong plug.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Port Angeles, WA
I bought this oven when remodeling a kitchen for the convection oven feature, so that I would have that "extra" oven for those times when a single oven isn't sufficient. We do primarily use this as a microwave, but the speed cook and convection oven features are great to have. All the features are great and it's been fun learning to use this new appliance. I understand this oven is no longer being manufactured, but if GE has another similar appliance, I would highly recommend.
Wonderful and Easy
from Jupiter, FL
This oven is the best. You can cook an entire meal with this oven. We have used it to cook a variety of meals and each one came out perfect using the built in recipes.
Love my Advantium oven!
Got my first Advantium when both oven & microwave went out at the same time. When the first one bit the dust, I had to get another. Only use my regular oven when cooking large items. It cooks everything fast and tasty!
I finally understand why salespeople are so excited about this product!
from NEW YORK, NY
My husband and I went back and forth as to whether to buy this product. Truthfully, it was more than we thought we should spend on a microwave. We finally get that it is so much more. A salesperson said that he owned one and he would be willing to trade his fancy range for this microwave and that convinced us. We are very glad we ended up purchasing one!
13 years and still going strong!!
from Pontoon Beach, IL
My current Advantium Oven is still going after 13 years of daily use. IT DID NOT WEAR OUT, but I am replaceing it with a new color !!!! I love this oven. biscuits are a breeze, and look like they came direct from the conventional oven. I have made whole roasted chickens. Yumm! Pizza's are wonderful; You would never know it came from this microwave looking oven. I use it for a microwave too. Worth every penny & I HIGHLY recommend this product! It is a wonderful time saver.
I cook most everything in my Advantium
from Bartlett, IL
I love getting in and out of the kitchen fast with food that tastes oven baked but in a fraction of the time! This oven could not be easier to use. If you can read you can run it! You will buy it as a replacement microwave and also use it as a replacement oven. This is the best way to add an extra oven in even the smallest kitchens.
from Marietta, GA, USA
It heats my food evenly and is nice to look like. It cooks well.
from Mesa, AZ, USA
I had purchased this 2 years ago and since I purchased it I have used my oven a lot less. You don't realize until you have one of these convection ovens how much use you can get out of it. Living in Arizona it is very nice not to heat up a large oven. I highly recommend this microwave.
Wow! This is an awesome microwave
If you are looking for quality, look no further. This microwave has it all.
