Summary: The Bosch 500 combo looks nice but is a piece of junk. We have gone through two microwaves in two years. It took forever to try and fix the first one so it isn't even worth the aggravation. It runs for 10 seconds and shuts off and apparently everyone else has the same issue.
Summary: Pros: Oven works great. Beautiful exterior. Powerful microwave. Cons: - Lasted 18 months before microwave stopped working. Would start and then turn off after 11-12 seconds. - This product should be recalled because there are numerous complaints around the internet about the known problem of an unreliable magnetron tube and inverter board. Look at Amazon and AJMadison and Consumer Reports. - Costs >$700 to get repaired.
Summary: "This oven is the best! It cooks well and evenly and I have never been able to bake pies as well as I do now with the pie setting. It is quiet, the convection cooking is useful for most of my baking and roasting. It is super that I can turn out the light when the door is open because after I finish cooking and turn off the oven, I leave the door open to glean the heat (in the winter time).
