This is my second GE combo convection/microwave/exhaust oven. I cook a lot, live in an apartment with a compact kitchen. This appliance is perfect for my space. The unit is very handsome. Each function is more than adequate. The convection application takes a while to reach temp, operates below the set temp, after disarming the auto-stepdown which most convection ovens have built in. The exhaust is quiet on low (the previous model was so loud, I never used it.) Difficult to clean. Can't use any ammonia products. The chamber is a beautifully polished stainless steel that scratches with the first cleaning. I found baking soda does the safest job.My biggest complaint with this version and the previous one: the interior light is not a user-serviceable part. Once it burns out, it's a $200 service call.The surface light is twice as bright (40W) as the previous model.The microwave works fine. I use it to to reheat leftovers and melt chocolate.Took an experienced maintenance guy an hour to remove the old unit and install the new one. Simply plugs into an outlet.I bought this GE unit again because any similar combo-products by other manufacturers seem to have more problems than this. The previous unit started arching inside the sealed unit during microwaving. 8 yrs old.

This was an absolute mistake. On my second one of these, as I thought the first problem (less than two years installed) was a fluke. After about 5 months of using it, the touchpad that controls ALL functions (except the light and turning on the vent) stopped functioning proprerly. (do an internet search, it apparently happens to A LOT of people). I replaced it with the same model, and guess what? Less than two months, and the touchpad stops working. Repair folks say it is a function of the machine not being able to withstand the stove top heat from the oven below, said he has to do a lot of these repairs... Thankfully, we had the store's extended service warranty, otherwise we were out of luck with GE. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless Steel Convection Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
The features blow me away. It's like having a second range, the convection is quick and so even. The microwave is fast and efficient.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Exceeded my expectations
from Tyler, TX, United States
This is great!!!! I've used the convention oven to make a roasted vegetable frittata, zucchini muffins, and baked two loaves of bread in it, I still can't believe a microwave was able to do all this, but still haven't used it to "microwave" anything yet but the oven features are amazing!!!! Now I have three ovens that I can use with confidence!!!!
Still learning the features but so far, worth the price

The defrost feature and timer are excellent. The appearance goes so well with the other CafÃ© appliances and it looks great over the stove.

We purchased this item along with the GE Cafe Series oven and its looks and functionality are surpassed by no other on the market.
