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.

I bought the GE Cafe over the cooktop microwave in January 2017 to replace a 2010 GE Cafe over the cooktop microwave. Previously, I had purchased the entire line of GE Cafe appliances--dishwasher, gas stove, cafe refrigerator, microwave--and I wanted to match the 2010 appliances. Unfortunately, the new microwave has an all plastic front exterior that only looks like stainless steel. To the touch, the surfaces even feel like plastic. No longer does the GE Cafe microwave look like the professional that I was hoping to duplicate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not User Friendly!
from Cary, NC, United States
It doesn't display constant time. Don't like the fact that there is no key pad for entering cook time. A dial is used instead and this makes it difficult for an individual with tremors. Kitchen timer is not loud enough to be heard, especially when there are other noises in the background.

Just installed our Little Beauty a few days ago and we are so thrilled with how it looks, the features it comes with and especially the first button being "Popcorn"! Totally sold my husband! LOL Easy to navigate and we love it's modern appeal!

Having a the convection feature is great - Just love it!
from Olathe, KS, United States
It's a microwave. It's a convection oven. it matches the rest of my GE Cafe series appliances. What more can be said? It has so many features that you'll want to read the manual, but it's pretty intuitive for simple functions.
