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.

GE CAFE Series Microwave CVM2072SM3
Comments about GE Cafe Stainless Steel Convection Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
After three years of service, the control panel on this model went dead. Tried all the trouble shooting tips offered in the manual, but nothing seems to fix the problem. After reading the reviews by other owners, I concluded this is a nice looking pretty expensive junk. On top of it, the model has been discontinued and without informing current owners of the product about this continuing and recurring problem with the model and the solution to address it. What a shame!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My new Convection Microwave
from Doylestown, PA, United States
I have not yet used all the features this model have to offer. But what I have used is great. It does take a little getting used to, not as easy as the spacesaver microwaves. Looking forward to discovering more about my Microwave.
Great styling and features
