Summary: I immediately noticed that this unit has an appetite for light bulbs and unfortunately the one inside the oven went after only a couple of weeks. I say unfortunate because it appears that this bulb is not meant to be user-serviceable and is a complete pain to get at.
Summary: I had an older GE microwave above my range that died after about 8 years. When looking for a replacement I decided to go for another similar GE in order to swap it out easily, figuring it would use similar hardware. That was my first mistake.
Summary: Lots of control features for both microwave and convection oven. Convection oven does nice job without heating up the whole house. Microwave works as expected, and the dials and buttons are quickly learned. Good built-in help feature for the controls.
Summary: When you buy it, the salesman might mention 5 year warranty on the magnetron, but when the magnetron goes out (and it will with this POS - mine lasted almost 4 years), the GE warranty people will not give you a quote for labor when you call them. They say it'll be $85 to drive out to your house.
Summary: I've had this convection microwave for 4 years & haven't had a problem with it. Overall my experience with it has been great. KEYPAD VS. DIAL My biggest hesitation with choosing this model was that it has the dial knob instead of a keypad.
Summary: Overall, I really like this microwave-convection oven combo. Mine is black but the unit is the same as the stainless version. The microwave works like any other so nothing to report either way - the convection option is great.
Summary: I purchased this over the range convection microwave/warming oven when I remodeled my kitchen and was excited to save countertop space, have a microwave and convection oven/warming drawer all in one. I was wrong.
