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.

Sharp looking Microwave
from Lake Saint Louis, MO, United States
I bought this built in microwave because it matched all the other appliances in my house... Full disclosure we typically only use our microwave to reheat things or to pop popcorn. We have been happy thus far and it looks very nice in the kitchen. It has more gadgets than we will probably ever use, but we like it...

The exhaust is so weak that it does not exhaust anything you are cooking on top or in the oven,
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
So Far Working Great
from Merrick, NY, United States
Ive had the microwave for 4 months now and it has work very well. The convection is a key tool to have when cooking multiple items at once. I also love the popcorn feature. Cooks it great everytime

I bought this microwave last December, I am a home canner and the plastic on the bottom of the door has melted twice.
Works fine, but cheap handle
from Gaithersburg, MD
We "upgraded" our appliances to the GE cafe when we bought the house. It hasn't been 2 years yet and the handle (which is plastic wrapped around with a fake silver wrap) is peeling off. My husband peeled off the section that was hanging off so that we wouldn't cut ourselves on it.
