The microwave works very well. It heats quickly and does a great job with popcorn and leftovers. I use the timer function a lot in my cooking, and the microwave will not work when you are using the timer. It is incredibly annoying. Every time I put bread or something in the oven, I have to decide if I am going to want to use the microwave at some point while the timer is still on. I had to buy a separate timer because of this issue. We had a cheap microwave oven before this one and you could use the timer and the microwave at the same time. It is an extremely poor design and I will never buy a microwave with this issue again.I have never used the convection function of this microwave.

I have always, as my parents did, bought Frigidaire appliances in our 55 years of marriage, and been very satisfied. Now, however, I have 4 top-of-the-line new Frigidaire stainless steel appliances in my newly-remodeled kitchen, and am highly disappointed. The biggest problem is with the microwave/convection oven, which I have been told cannot be remedied. The small print of the lettering on the keypad need to be read with a flashlight in hand by everyone, young and old. Completely ridiculous for one of your best models. There is no backlight, to make the selections readable, disappointing as the microwave was expensive. My friends and family just shake their heads when I show them my new kitchen and they note the problem with the keypad of a brand-new appliance. My French-door refrigerator had the ice cube mechanism freeze up and needed to have new insulation gaskets installed. Also, I was not told that in order for the dishwasher to work properly, the tank holding the "Finish" liquid had to be kept at a high level. When my kitchen remodeling was finished in Oct. of 2014, I left my home in Nov., 2014 to spend the winter in FL, and after a six-month absence, resumed using my new kitchen and appliances in May, 2015. Over this summer I have come to be aware of the difficulty using the microwave. What can Frigidaire do to make a loyal long-time customer feel satisfied with my purchases?

Comments about Frigidaire Gallery Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Convection Microwave:
We bought this microwave few month ago with the whole Frigidaire gallery appliance package. The seller point was the Smudge proof stainless steel and also because the house we sold had Frigidaire professional series appliances that we enjoyed using with out any problems for 11 years. However installing and using all of the appliances we were sure disappointed on the quality of the appliances, seems that manufactures make poorer quality appliances not like they used to. This microwave is stainless steel inside and is harder to keep clean than white coated interior microwaves. I used the convection option to cook chicken nuggets for my kids and it's definitely not the same as cooking in a regular or toaster oven, not too impressed with that feature. Also the beeping sound after its done cooking is so loud and annoying and drove us nuts. So my husband finally figured a way to turn it off. For those with the same issue, press User pref, than 4, than *, this will turn off the buzzer and no longer beep after it's done cooking. It's an ok microwave but I don't think its worth the extra money for the convection option if you are used to using a regular oven to bake. Oh and the smudge proof feature is not completely smudge resistant, you still get smudges on it and still have to polish it, maybe not as much as some other stainless steel brands on the market.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very versatile -- truly another oven!
from Delanco, NJ, USA
I got this appliance in the fall when I had to redo the kitchen because of a refrigerator hose leak which ruined the floors and cabinets. I changed over to stainless because there was a new line of smudge free appliances: Frigidaire's Gallery series. I had always wanted a convection microwave for when I wanted an extra oven, so this time I got one, which is much more than an "extra" and has the versatility and features to be the go-to over much of the time. I still have many more features to try, but I love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Microwave-Broken Bulb
The microwave is gorgeous and works great so far. However, I only had the appliance for a week and the bulb blew out underneath it and I had to call for a replacement. I dont feel that should happen with a brand new product that wasn't even used yet.

We bought this a month to replace a broken microwave. I have always wanted a convection oven. It works great and easy to use. Best part of it is that we don't need a toaster oven on the counter top now, since the convection oven is built into the microwave. The only thing we don't like is the sound after the microwave is finished never stops. It reminds us forever that it's done. We turned the sound off. Besides that it's excellent.
Love the look, love to cook
My husband and I bought a foreclosed house, unfortunately the kitchen appliances were totally useless. The good news is we purchased a few new items, one was the Frigidaire Microwave Convection oven! I absolutely LOVE it! The first thing I cooked was a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. While my free-standing oven was roasting the turkey it took up the entire oven. The Convection Microwave was a life saver I LOVE IT.. Oh by the way the pie turned out PERFECT.
Perfect replacement for our old Frigidaire non convenction. Even used same brackets. Took about 10 minutes to exchage and most of that was changing the exhaust direction.

We ordered this in August for September installation as part of our kitchen renovation. It looks great, and performs equally well. We love the convection feature!

I love how this microwave bakes & microwaves. I've used it to bake muffins, bake chicken as well as regular microwaving. It's excellent.

Micro was working great but today noticed door on side of opening is cracked already. Haven't used it that much in the 2yrs I've owned it. Very disappointed
Works and looks great.

We have six people at home so the microwave gets much use all day long. It is efficient and works perfectly.
