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:
This was bought to furnish our new home that was destroyed with Sandy, the reviews and recommendations ware excellent. It also had the strongest over the range vent. The only thing that is cumbersome is to set the time to cook.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have used this Cafe Microwave for a few months now and love the convenience settings. Still learning how to use the conduction bake and roast but my GE Profile Stove does an excellent job at that. The only caution I share is the heat it gives off when using induction features. Overall love the appliance.
Great microwave/oven combo!

I bought this oven for our new home and it works great! I have used it for microwaving, convection baking, and for venting over my range. It is very easy to use and keep clean.
Excellent looking and functions well...

This was one of 5 cafe series appliances we bought recently. Overall, I like the look and operation of the microwave. Fan is quiet, lighting is excellent onto our cook surface. The only thing I am a little disappointed with is that you can't adjust the clock brightness. It is 1/2 as bright as my GE Cafe series wall oven. I also find the keys should be back-lit the cancel button is awkward to find, doesn't stand out or sit in a unique location. I also don't like that the time changes in 30 second blocks, sometimes I want a smaller number.

Wasn't too sure if I would like or use the convection bake but I love it.

It is a breeze to operate and looks great above my stove. Love the programmable night light feature too! I no longer walk into a dark kitchen in the mornings!

We placed this microwave into service about 4 months ago, and it has been fantastic!!! Everything about it has worked well. My wife baked roll's in it using the convection option, they were perfect. The heat sensors are a bomb! Fabulous. The only down side is, I wish GE would use the highest grade stainless for their products. Then they would be a real deal.
Many Features !
from Washington State
We have not used this microwave for much more than re-heating. We had one unsatisfactory experience with the cooking oven aspect. Although the convection oven degrees did convert upon baking squash the food actually took thirty minutes longer to cook than our traditional and lower oven did with the same food. Plus the food was not cooked throughout the shell. We threw it out, since we had already finished our meal. I could not recommend this product without further cooking use.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
