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.

Design issues

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless Steel Convection Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

Overall fairly good microwave with some design flaw issues. Oil from exhaust fan accumulates through the upper registers and your seats down on the inside of the front panel behind the front door. Upper facia panel plastic tabs breaks easily whenever removing to clean excess oil from vent.

Underpowered

By 

from Wilmette, IL, United States

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless Steel Convection Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

I have this installed above my range. It looks good, except for the cheap black sides which I had to replace myself. My old counter-top had more power, so I am disappointed this one takes a bit longer to cook food. At this expensive price point, more power should have been provided. Not had a chance to use it as a convection oven yet and probably never will.

Nice looking microwave

By 

from Arizona, United States

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless Steel Convection Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

I purchased this microwave to update my kitchen. Its a very nice looking appliance. The stainless steel is bright and eye catching. The microwave has many features - too many to use! If you are looking for a regular microwave, this is not the one for you. The buttons and dials can get confusing. I hope to learn to use more features of the microwave over time.
