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 love the fact that it is a Covection & Microwave in one. Only issue I have with it is the tone at the end of the cycle is very hard to hear!

Great to use for cooking frozen veggies or warming up leftovers. Large enough to handle most dishes
Service and delivery comments:
Took 2 attempts to get the microwave as the first one delivered was severely damaged. It was surprising that this wasn't discovered prior to delivery. Fortunately a replacement was in stock so we were able to keep on schedule.

The microwave works fine. I am very disappointed that the time display doesn't not stay on. I looked in the owners manual and it indicates that to meet a 2016 energy standard the time display goes off after something like 5 seconds. What good is a time display if it is never on. The unit was supplied by the builder. But if I had a choice I would select another model that has a constant time display.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Replace previous model that quit
from MN, United States
We bought this as a replacement because our Cafe microwave quit AGAIN and the extended warranty had expired. Since we had a lot of problems with the previous CafÃ© model, I was leery about buying the same model, but wanted it to match our other CafÃ© appliances. We did upgrade to the Convection version though and bought the extended warranty again. We absolutely love the Convection option. We were able to get rid of our counter convection/toaster oven. It works great for times that I don't want to start our convection oven. We have made many things including frozen pizzas, brownies, garlic bread, etc. I even tested it out making a casserole. I do wish that the inside wasn't all stainless steel. It's harder to keep clean than the typical white interior. The button and dial display is very easy to operate.

WE BOUGHT THIS 4 MONTHS AGO AND WE COULDNT BE HAPPIER!
Beautiful appliance but key pad not working
Well, this one is a toss up - I am sure that GE will get everything resolved, but it is a bit frustrating to install a brand new appliance and not have it work properly from the start.
