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.

Replacement for GE Monogram
from Gulf Breeze, FL, United States
Just installed,looks great,like the stainless steel interior. However was disappointed when we discovered that Clock display turns off after 30 seconds. Not able to set to stay on as we liked having that on our old microwave to see time of day at a glance. You have to open door to bring clock on, or be cooking to see clock displayed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Clearwater, FL, United States
I bought this microwave two months ago. I use my microwave allot and am enjoying the accurate cooking temps along with the ease of use. It took me less than 3 minutes to learn how to use it, and I even taught my husband. I haven't used all of the cooking features, however am looking forward to learning more capabilities. I really love the way it looks, very sleek, modern and is easy to clean.
