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.

good looking appliance.

Beautiful appliance. Easy install. Great microwave.
Great Microwave/Convection Oven
from New York, NY, United States
This microwave is nice and easy to use. The knob in the middle seems a bit out of place but is only used during setup. The only complaint is the door handle is a cheap plastic bar with silver wrapping. This replaces an old GE Cafe Microwave which was over 10 years old.

This is a replacement for GE with digital pad that went wrong.
Not Happy with this
from Troy NY
I purchased this microwave in March 2015. In July I decided to microwave 4 russet potatoes (total weight under 32 oz.). Sensor went off. Thought perhaps it was something I did. Fast forward to August. Decided to bake two potatoes. Sensor went off, this has happened four times now. Today, I did two potatoes total weigh 25 oz. no sensor alarm, but potatoes were not cooked, I micro waved them for a total of 4 minutes and still they were not cooked inside. Can anyone who has this model tell me how long it should take to cook two potatoes?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We ave had this microwave 2 weeks now and really love all of the features that we have figured out so far. Can't wait to figure everything out.

Good microwave- but a little loud!
By Nancy J
from Littleton, CO, United States
This is the 2nd GE Cafe microwave we've had and like all of the features this one has to offer. We haven't tried the convection yet but plan to soon. The only complaint we have i that it's a little loud compared to the 1st one we had.
GE cafe models not worth the money

Bought April 2015. Manufacture sticker says built jam 2015. Door handle is tin foil over plastic. When I went to claim manufacture warrantee. They said unit is over s year old. Had too jump through hoops for repaid. Produce receipts pictures of serials etc. the receipt should be enough.

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.

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.
