Do not purchase
Posted by: Bobdonna1024 from: on
I advise you not to purchase the GE Convection Microwave Oven. We purchased one at Best Buy in December and never used the "convection" portion until January. You have to use the oven rack placed in the center of the oven. Everything over cooks or burns in the back of the oven. Best Buy's Geek squad finally came out in February to look at it. The geek told me the convection isn't supposed to actually be used as an oven. Well why the heck did I waste my buying this thing if I can't use it as an oven. Best Buy won't take the thing back after 15 days so we can't return it for a refund. Even though we purchased the extended warranty the Geeks are telling us we need to contact GE's customer service. What a waste of money!

Nice Replacement for old GE Profile OTR Microwave
Posted by: GeezingInVA from: Clifton, VA 20124, USA on
Very easy install to replace our 2001 version of this unit. Able to retain the old mounting plate, plus all hanging screws, rear vent, and power cord lined up perfectly. A 10-minute change out of the old unit and install this unit. Some features updated/improved over the past thirteen years, including the handle that used to break off. Only obvious design flaw is the two main control panel buttons, "Start/Pause" and "Cook Time", have defective almost-invisible text compared to all of the other highly-visible buttons. Where was the quality control during manufacturing?

Never got to use it
Posted by: RichardinSC from: SC on
Purchased this item on line. Installed it and my wife said I can't read the key pad. Hmmmm I looked and I had trouble reading the key pad. Instead of white numbers on black background it has dim grey numbers. With a flashlight or some other direct light I could read it. We invited 4 neighbors to look at it and they all could not believe how hard it was to read. I called and scheduled a service visit. They ordered and installed a new key pad. Not any improvement. Thankfully Best Buy allowed us to exchange it for another brand that has a key pad we can read.

Bought a GE Profile microwave/convection oven on 9/25/15. I had my own installers since wall vent had to be moved and they arrived on 10/23/15. Upon uncrating microwave we found the door dented as well as inside the door the frame was bent in two places. I called Best Buy & they blew me off saying I had only 15 days to return something and sent me to GE who is going to send someone to analyze. I also bought an extended warranty. I asked for a printed copy in the store and they told me to go on the website and I could download one there. That is a confusing mess. No where could I find a "specific" description of my microwave extended warranty. Also - it does not say anything about the 15 day return policy on the receipt nor did anyone in the store tell me I had only 15 days to return anything.

Great extra oven!
Posted by: DisapointedKYuser from: Louisville, KY on
I love my new GE convection microwave oven. It is really easy to use. Just follow the laminated card that comes with the oven and you are ready to go! I had some reservations about transitioning to a microwave oven with a dial, but after getting the oven and using it, I love this feature. The additional instruction booklet provides easy to follow steps for setting up some of the extra features but most of the extra features are already pre-set to "on" and you would only need to change them if you wanted to turn them off but why would anyone want to turn them off!?! This model comes with more features than I thought and I'm really glad that I did not spend the extra money on the GE Advantium. I love the automatic vent and the nice bright light over my range! Also, this model has 3 cook methods (not just two): Convection, Microwave and Speed Baking (which combines microwave with convection). The model comes preset to reconfigure your oven temp using the convection bake so you do need not do more than follow your normal recipes (unless you are using recipes specifically designed for convection). I baked a pan of brownies last night using the convection bake setting and they turned out perfect! The oven pre-heats very quickly and does not put out as much heat and cools off much more quickly than our large oven. I have not used the speed bake yet (it requires cooking with non-metal) but I'm eager to cook my traditional cornbread pudding in glassware using speed bake. This oven will save us the frustration we encounter on holiday family gatherings trying to get everything on the table with just one oven. We'll now be able to quickly cook our sweet potato casserole and corn pudding using the GE convection oven while the turkey bakes in the large oven. It's only been one day with the new microwave oven and I'm inspired to start cooking again!

Microwave worked great, but convection failed
Posted by: PeterS225 from: on
After researching the GE Profile microwave/convection oven extensively we decided to purchase the product over the internet from Best Buy. Delivery from was within 2 - 3 days which was great as the other suppliers were at least 10 days. However when I opened the box the glass plate support ring was broken. The ring was replaced by Best Buy at one of their stores. However I had a feeling the microwave was a return. The installation was extremely easy. The Microwave worked great. A few days later we tried to use the convection oven and there was this horrible noise coming from the rotating plate. It looked like the plate was trying to turn but couldn't. We returned the unit for a full refund.

Excellent dual use microwave and oven
Posted by: thespy from: New Orleans, LA on
This doubles as a convection oven and microwave, and it handles both jobs well. The convection oven feature can take a bit of time to heat up, but that's not surprising as it's 120V. One thing to keep in mind is while it comes with metal racks, unlike some other microwaves, you can not use them in the microwave setting; you can of course use them in the convection setting, but surprisingly, you can also use them in the "combo bake" feature, which utilizes both microwave and convection to cook food more quickly. The fan vents out and is very powerful at clearing a room of smoke.

Good microwave, as expected.

very happy with our microwave

We just purchased GE Profile Series - Profile 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave. We are very happy with our choice. We made chocolate brownies and they were perfect. Moisture sensor creates moist baking. Very Happy.
