This Microwave/Convection oven has every possible feature.
I have used this oven for microwaving and convection cooking. Every feature / function has worked perfectly. The stainless interior is easy to keep clean, and the microwave heats all areas evenly. This oven has all the features one needs for every day cooking as well as entertaining large groups.

The knob control is a bad idea.
Our GE Profile microwave convection oven, which was purchased by the previous owner of our condo, performs well as both a microwave and a convection oven, But the control panel layout is a bad idea. Instead of a conventional 10-button number panel, you must make all numerical choices through a rotating knob. Since the knob turns in 15 second and 30 second increments, you can't nuke something for, say, 18 seconds. The design turns out to be a nightmare for my short, legally blind partner, who cannot see the display, and must rely on the unit's few presets for all his cooking needs. I have added colored dots to the most used buttons so he can see what to push.
Another complaint: the microwave's defrost function almost invariably leaves food half frozen, and the extra increments the oven offers never complete the job. I usually have to dial in somewhere from 45 seconds to a mnute and a half at power level 3, check the food, turn it over, and repeat before I can let the food finish defrosting on the counter.

This oven saved us
After losing the built-in oven we had in the basement in last years flood, we found ourselves without the second oven necessary for holiday meals. To our delight this, we found this oven while redoing our kitchen and it solved all our problems. It bakes cakes, cookies and casseroles as perfectly as our range oven yet microwaves faster than any microwave we've ever had. The reheat function is amazing. Rice and pasta reheat without becoming burned or crunchy. The convection/microwave function lets you cook a roast after work without having to wait for a weekend. This product is a spaceship.

This microwave/convection does everything I need.
I needed a microwave / convection oven that was large enough to use for large items (like a turkey). This model had everything I needed and has worked perfectly with daily use for over nine months. Almost every function has been used with perfect results every time. I would highly recommend this unit, it is the epitome of function and reliability at a reasonable price.

Love the Features and the Profile Style
We are very pleased with this microwave. It also has the capability of a convection oven. Perfect for summer when you don't wish to heat up the whole house. The fan, however is a little too loud and I wish it had a non-stick interior surface which would be easier to clean, but just heating up a cup of water and letting it steam the interior works well too.

I probably shouldn't say this because it will jinx me, but I have been using this microwave/convection oven for well over a year now and it works great! I love the fact that I can bake in it as well as use the microwave. Unfortunately it sat in a box for about a year before I started using it, but actually that too worked out ok considering my circumstances! Anyway, I would recommend this appliance to anyone! LOVE IT! Only thing that confuses other people is the dial timer not a keypad...but oh well, it keeps them outta my kitchen!!! LOL

Product failed within 11 months
Thankfully, it was still under warranty. Also, don't get service from Geek Squad, they take forever to fix it.
