We've had this oven for a couple of weeks now, have used it several times, with and without convection, to roast vegetables and meat and bake a pie. It works well. The fan that comes on during convection is audible but quiet - it does not intrude on conversation right next to the oven. The non-convection cooling fan is almost inaudible. My husband and I cannot understand the complaints about fan noise - our previous 20-year-old Not-So-Magic Chef was *much* louder (just the cooling fan was a low roar and it didn't have convection), so this oven, by comparison, is a quiet pleasure. The temperature registered about 25 degrees high on my portable oven thermometer, but I don't know how accurate that thermometer is - all I know is my old oven always registered 50-75 low on the same thermometer and took forever to cook things, so this is an improvement. The user interface is pretty intuitive and I like the look of the whole oven. When the oven is off, you don't even notice the programming panel. I love the wipe-clean smooth floor and the huge window and the double lights. Since we killed our previous oven's program module twice by trying to use the self-clean feature, which is apparently too hot for the circuit boards, I don't plan to ever try self-clean with this oven.

To begin with, the user interface design was not thought out very well. You can set up the temperature, mode, delay information, etc. and if you happen to brush against Self Clean button on the way to the Start key, everything goes away and you have to start completely over. If you're in the process or baking something and you happen to brush against the Start key, --- same thing happens --- everything turns off and you have to start the oven completely from scratch. Would it have been so hard to require that the Self Clean button be held in for two seconds before it does anything ?? When you are setting the clock, you enter a value and then you have to press the Start key -- pretty standard. The problem is, there's no indication that the Start key was pressed. The display looks the same whether you press the Start key or not, so if you happen to miss, its going to take a while for you to find out. Perhaps an LED to indicate that the timer is running is too much to ask?? -- or perhaps switch to a minutes / seconds display and start counting down seconds. Here's a really dumb one -- you want to cook something for 90 minutes -- you enter 90 into the timer and it just beeps at you. You have to enter 90 minutes as 1 hour 30 minutes. The computer is smart enough to know that 90 is greater than 59 (anything above 59 minutes is illegal) but not smart enough to convert 90 minutes to an hour and a half ???? The start delay function setup sequence is not intuitive, but it can be learned. You will be digging for the manual for a while. The temperature control algorithm blows my mind. There is a LOT of relay chatter going on. The user manual warns you about this and assures you that this is normal. What does all of the relay activity do to reliability? Those relays are under load and they are constantly being turned on and off. This is a service call just waiting to happen. You will find that the unit is VERY slow to preheat, and during preheat the relays are clicking away. Why do you need to be turning elements off when the oven temperature is 100 degrees on the way to 400? Given that its 2016 and not 1977, there are a number of other pieces of useful information that should (and easily enough could) be available such as time the oven was turned on, or how long its been on, how long till the oven comes on in a delay cycle,..... I have a GE Profile cooktop and GE Profile Dishwasher. This oven was a real disappointment.

I just got it. It has all the features I wanted, including convection and self-cleaning modes. I know I'm going to love it already.

we replaced our old white 15 year profile built in oven with this one and it looks great!
Feels and looks cheap

I was excited to have this new color in my kitchen. It's a warm color and matte, which I like, BUT, it's plastic and feels cheap. I miss my 13 year old black GE oven, but it stopped working so I had to get a new one. The start button has a 1-2 second delay after you push it, so you're not sure if you pushed hard enough and end up pushing it several times. None of the other buttons are like that. I wish I could exchange it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought the oven to replace a older model, the convection oven side has made baking easier.

Since I have a support issue I cannot comment on this matter. I do like the oven however.
