Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size & great functions! I just bought this after our 7-year-old GE over the range microwave went up. ??Thought I'd try a convection/microwave. ??Haven't had the chance to try the "convection" part yet. ??It's very sleek looking, functions great! ?? Negative is the black display panel is not illuminated. ??Sometimes hard to read the panel. ??Also, just getting used to the dial function instead of a number pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the update Replaced a 22 year old GE Profile Convection over-the-range with a new one. Easy to use. Very nice, faster microwave. More even convection cook oven temp. Old minor loss is old one had timer and reminder clocks. No reminder now but the many more options more than compensates. Great buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FYI We replaced our 17 year old microwave with this model because of the convection bake ability. I am an avid baker and the option of an additional 2 racks for baking appealed to me. However, I do not recommend it for baking. The cookies I've made do not cook evenly, even when turning the trays half way through. There seems to be a hot spot in the middle, side to side of the oven. The oven works fine on microwave as well as convection bake. I have not used the quick bake yet. The molding surrounding the glass on the door is PLASTIC and completely scratched on my brand new microwave. Part of the keypad is also scratched. It is more scratched after using for two months than my 17 year old microwave was. I was told by GE that it is because I used paper towel (Bounty). I find that unreasonable that paper towel cannot be used on a kitchen appliance when I've been using it my entire adult life for cleaning my kitchen appliances. It seems to me that an appliance that gets daily use, should be better quality. It aggravates me every time I look at the microwave and see the scratches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features!!! I purchased this to replace the exact model which I had purchased in 1999. Hopefully this one will last as long. I still love all the features expecially the convection cooking!!
