Amazing time saver!

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

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.

Easy to use
Powerful and Solid
from Pittsburgh, PA, USA
This 240V unit is powerful and the Advantium browning feature helps keep some foods crisp during cooking.
from Barboursville, WV, USA
I purchased this Speedcooking Oven to replace a very old over the stove microwave oven. I did have to install a 220 volt receptical, but the investment was well worth it. This oven is a tribute to technology. My family uses is far more than we do the "traditional oven". In short, it is easier to use, more convenient, and cooks in far less time than our traditional oven. I would highly reccomend that anyone interested in upgrading their old over the counter / stove microwave, take a very serious look at this product. I have zero regrets.
A Great Upgrade
from Decatur, IL
I love the two shelves in this micro as it gives me versatility to heat three platefuls of food at a time--great for leftovers. I haven't had burnt popcorn yet from this micro, and the quick timer features save my busy fingers from hitting power, time, and start buttons. In all, I am most satisfied with my GE cooking replacements. I only wish I had purchased a GE refrigerator at the same time instead of buying from a competitor.

A big time saver...
from Winter Park, FL, USA
I am still finding features on this wonderful Oven...it is amazing at what it will do for us! After checking the menu that is built in, I found everything that I could have wanted right on the oven. Suggest that if you are in the market for a replacement, this is the oven to buy. Worth the price!

Great time saver - great results
from Denver, CO
It's amazing what you can do with this thing. A frozen pot pie takes 45 minutes in the oven, or 7 minutes in the microwave but with a soggy crust. It's 6 minutes in this thing to a golden brown and crispy crust. One short on baked potatoes? 4 minutes and you have a crispy skin with a light, fluffy center. It's an amazing time saver, and doesn't produce that microwave-like soggy food you get from a regular microwave.
