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 oven is outstanding. Plenty of power for microwaving and can cook conventionally with ease. The convection feature is great! You don't need to use your large stove and a bunch of electricity with this oven. Easy to use and quite frankly nice to look at in the kitchen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Makes kitchen look like a magazine photo. Great product
Great Features. Inferior plastic door handle
from Cincinnati, OH, United States
I bought this GE CafÃ© Series a week before Thanksgiving in 2014. I love the microwave feature and the two shelves for convection baking. The finish on the handle has peeled off as it is plastic with a laminate contact paper over silver foil. I am trying to get this replaced. If the handle was solid plastic or stainless it would be much better. I believe at this price point it should be stainless.
best microwave i have ever owned
from Charlotte, NC, United States
I cook alot and love the features of warming levels and seems to have a mind of it's own. Love also having a second oven when needed.

Microwave was bought for my new home. Nice features and very pleased with the performance.
from Lake Worth, FL, United States
This microwave is like having a mini oven, I'm obsessed to say the least! with a family who loves to eat and throw holiday parties, having an extra "oven" is something to smile about. Unlike a regular size oven, this micro, when used on its oven features doesn't always heat evenly throughout the unit...just requires a little more attention and rotating

This microwave does everything. It bakes. It defrosts without cooking the meat. It has many, many options to do just about everything. If you are two, you can bake a small dish without turning on the big oven. Save the $$$.
Handel looks like plastic

Bakes perfect pies and mic's perfect leftovers

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.
Not worth the money
