Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Posted . Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
I gave it a 4 stars rating because I’ve not used all the features yet but what I have used is what I expected since this is my second GE PROFILE microwave/convection oven.
Easy to install & use. I set up the Bluetooth connection with my oven to turn on the fan & light when a burner is turned on. The microwave works perfectly. Still haven’t tried to use the convection bake feature yet.
This over-the-range convection microwave has been an excellent addition to my kitchen. The microwave works well. I am very pleased with the convection baking functions. The baking oven preheats a lot faster than my full-size oven, and has done an excellent job with the pizzas, pot pies and other foodstuffs I have cooked. The rapid preheating reduces my cooking time for small items that don't need the full-size oven. This was an excellent purchase for me. At the time, Best Buy had the item in-stock, when other retailers could not promise delivery for 2 months or more. Delivery and installation were on-time, as promised during purchase. Thank you.
We wanted to share the fact that there was a minor confusion in the model number of the delivered product to the BestBuy and GE team.
We ordered the GE microwave model number "PVM9179SKSS" from Bestbuy online portal. We got delivered the GE microwave model "PVM9179SK5SS". There is a subtle difference in the model number.
The model number "PVM9179SKSS" has the description that interior of microwave is Enamel based on the Bestbuy website. The model number "PVM9179SK5SS" that got delivered to us has interior Stainless Steel.
Also, we cannot search the model "PVM9179SK5SS" number online, as there are no results found for that.
We wanted to know if the model "PVM9179SK5SS" is a stable model, and if there is any reasons that the model "PVM9179SK5SS" was not found in any public internet searches (like new, or discontinued, or recalled, etc) ?
Appreciate you clarification.
We appreciate you reviewing this microwave. Our most sincere apologies to hear that your previous model died after two repairs. We trust that your replacement will have no issues. If you do need anything, don't hesitate to reach out to us. Have a wonderful day! Mike@GEA
