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.

Everything I'd expect from GE
from Narberth, PA, United States
Even cooking. Has many functions. Gives me an extra over as well as a microwave. Works well.
Nice Microwave, Handle Peels
from Auburn, WA, United States
This is a great working microwave. Only problem is that the handle peels due to the heat from the range below.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Nice looking addition to my Cafe range. GE makes a dependable microwave.
A lttle bit disappointing..
from Downers Grove, IL, United States
All works well, but, 3 months after I purchased it, the "chrome" started peeling off the handle, exposing the white plastic underneath. It is very disappointing for such an expensive microwave.
from Jamesville, NY
GE replaced our original Cafe Series 'Over-the-Range' microwave with this model, due to a defective part. This microwave/convection oven is wonderful! I use the convection oven almost daily - it really saves having to turn on the big oven. The microwave functions perfectly also. I highly recommend.
