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.

Horrible interface and seems low power.

By 

from New York, NY, United States

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

I am giving this microwave two stars because it looks great, it gets a 5/5 for looks. If it weren't for its good looks it would get 1. The interface is just so non-intuitive, and ti already needed a repair after a few months. You have to click the control knob and various buttons differently depending on what feature you are using which makes no sense. This lack of consistency means I have to re-figure out how to use ti every time I use it. It takes much longer to turn it on, I also don't like that everything has to be increments of 5, 15, or 25 depending on the function. Every guest I have over has trouble using it, even after explanation. Also, the microwave seems to cook much slower than my previous microwave of equivalent power. I expect more from a top-of-the lien microwave.

Versatile

By 

from Park Ridge, IL

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

We bought this oven as part of an appliance package for our new home build project and use it to complement our GE Café series gas range. We love it. We use it primarily as a convection oven. As it is an over the range oven and we have small children, our countertop microwave is more convenient for the kids to use. Prior to purchasing, I was concerned about the complaints regarding the handle "peeling." We have had the oven for eight months and have no issues. Yes it is pricey, but given that it is essentially three ovens in one (standard, convection, microwave) it seems like there is good value here. We use it in lieu of our gas range for smaller meals and when we don't want to heat up the whole kitchen. It does seem like it takes a while to preheat but I believe that to be a product of the fact that it is electric.

Great look matching GE Café Range (which also has a convection feature). Don't know if I will use the convection feature in the microwave. Needed recirculating ventilation however fan is very noisy.

By 

from Tampa, FL, United States

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.
