We bought this six weeks ago and like most all features except the microwave time function: It forces you to only select in 15 second segments, nothing less. More selections in 5-second intervals would be better. All choices (for both ovens) are made through a dial, which gets constant use -- for both the micro and oven -- and I can guess this may be the first part to wear out. I was surprised the convention oven does not provide any other choices than 250 degrees....more options would be much better to keep food warm (some require less heat! Again, more choices would be better, like 150, 180, 200, 220 degrees). The lower oven racks are coated and slide easily, especially the middle one on a sliding support! You have to be careful casserole dishes don't come flying out, but it is very easy to use. The racks do have a new "anchor" system that takes effort to learn how to get in and out; I find these difficult because of the twisted end piece which anchors both sides of each rack. It was a nice surprise to find three oven racks, adjusting them is a challenge though due to the design of the racks.. The oven light dims when you shut the door, a nice feature to check positioning. The unit looks great, so nice and clean and exactly fits the old spot! Matching the old footprint was critical, the price incentive made it doable. Clock: We lost power recently and the clock function keeps going out now. How do we correct? Tapping the Start button brings it back, but it eventually goes out. Before, it remained on for quick reference. All in all, a worthwhile investment that adds to the value of our kitchen and our home (we recently upgraded all appliances).

The features are great benefits. There is lots of room in the oven and microwave. Everything cooks evenly and the microwave cooks great. It was easy to install. Overall, the product seems very solid. The two most common complaints i've heard are the dial, and the sound of the beeping. The dial is a little strange to get used to but if it means less buttons taking up space and more space for the microwave and oven, then i'm on board with it. The beeping sound that it makes when the microwave or oven is done is way too quiet. It frustrates me when i can't hear it go off. It's particularly annoying because when the microwave finishes, the fan is still going making it sound as if it's still running. Freaked me out a few times cause i though my food was still cooking after it beeped and i didn't hear it. Here are my additional complaints. It's fancy having a microwave door feel like a double oven because it folds down instead of swings out, but in this case GE chose design over functionality. I would say that if you are about 5' tall, do not consider the recommended height from the floor to access two-handed items inside the microwave comfortably. I have the oven 5" higher than the recommended height because that's how it worked with my cabinet. I'm 5'8" and it's almost awkward with the arms trying to reach over the door. Since the door swings down, not only does it cause your body to be further away and harder to reach in, but you may need both your arms to take out an item, so you then have to pull the item closer to you, step back, then turn away. Also, the drop down door is also harder to close and less convenient to close than a swing out door. A swing out door it's just the flick of a finger. The fan in the oven makes a humming/vibrating noise. When i have the convection fan running. I sounds loud when it cycles off and on. so loud i can hear it hum out of the kitchen and down the hallway. Ironic thing is that i bought a side-by-side GE fridge a few years ago and the same thing happened with the fan in the freezer. it was too loud and eventually had a service guy come out and replace the fan motor. Still is loud once in a blue moon. The most crucial appliance of the kitchen by the most experienced appliance manufacture shouldn't still be struggling with these small usability issues.

Awkward Top Microwave
from Fredericksburg, VA, United States
Comments about GE Profile 30" Black Built-In Convection Combination Microwave Wall Oven:
This double oven combo came as part of the appliance package in our new home.... we did not select the item, and after using it, probably would not have. The dial feature is "interesting" but without the ability to control microwave cook time to the second, it is a bit frustrating. The microwave only sets in increments of 15 seconds. Added to that, with a drop down microwave door, instead of opening to the side, it is difficult for a shorter person to reach in to the back of the microwave for both cleaning or reaching food. Have not used the lower oven much yet, but on first look, the porcelain coated racks "stick" a bit when trying to remove them from the oven. Would expect much more thought in what is a very expensive oven combination!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We bought this combo unit to replace an older model, are are very disappointed. The end of cycle beeper is useless, the sound is faint, and despite a GE Tech replacing the circuit board containing the beeper, no improvement. I would not spend $$$ for a product that is not fully functional. The older model beep was much, much louder and this model only gives and on or off with no adjustment for volume.
from Chapin, SC, United States
This combo has been the perfect fit for my kitchen. By having the microwave on top, it saves counter space. It also cooks very evenly and quickly. Really happy I purchased this product.
Love this oven
from Eagle River, AK
This is a great oven set! I especially like the bottom rack of the large oven, it has a roller system which helps to move heavy items out of the oven. Very spacious inside the large oven and it cooks perfectly! The microwave/convection oven is very nice a well. I find it cooks very well, but when using the convection oven you must remember to turn the oven back on after you open the door to check on your food. The Microwave functions very well, but it does take extra time to punch all of the buttons of the control. It might be nice to have a couple of 'quick' selection buttons. (i.e. 1 min on high)
Replaced 15 yr old model with new - fit perfect!!
from Culebra, Puerto Rico
Bought this one to replace an older unit when microwave went out. Excellent buy - fit right in builtin spot - no additional trimming. like the 2 oven use - plus microwave -
Lots of features
from Maryland, United States
I just bought this one as a replacement to my GE combo unit which developed enamel coating problems inside the microwave. The new unit has stainless finish so I hope I would not have same problems. Still we learning the new unit as its operations controls are totally different.
