Summary: I just got a call from the extended warranty people that my extended warranty ends on Saturday. I'm sorry that I haven't written a review before. Clearly we have had this for 3 years now and we did have to make 1 service call. I was so nervous to spend so much on this 'microwave' and a few reviews had mentioned it failing around the 2 year mark, so I got the warranty.
Summary: "wall oven" does not do this appliance justice. The Advantium is in a class all by itself. Microwave, convection, speedcook. Get the 220; it cooks so fast and so well on speedcook that we love playing with our new toy. The Jetsons would have been amazed at what this puppy can do.
Summary: "Love it. Used it almost every day since it was installed. The presets are more than a novelty (criticism in some other reviews) they actually work! Pizza and cookies come out great with no preheat. Convection oven mode preheats quicker than the full size oven and is a good option for appetizer or side dish while the main course is in the bottom oven. For quick week night dinners from real ingredients, this is my new go to appliance.
Summary: I am amazed that the features and utility offered by this product are relatively unknown. This thing is so much more than just a microwave oven. You can actually "broil' a steak, control the external versus internal cooking temp, truly roast something, all in addition to the ordinary microwave stuff.
Summary: In 2009 I bought the monogram fridge, advantium, oven, 6 burner gas range, and dishwasher. So far I have had the $1200 dishwasher completely melt on the inside and a $500 repair bill on the microwave. I do love the looks of the monogram? Of course! But GE has some major quality issues. I would NOT reccomend these products because they are too pricy to be having these types of major repairs when the appliances are only 2 years old.
