    Good features for the price

    Our 20+ year old GE microwave/Oven combo finally gave up. After a lot of research we settled on this 27inch GE combo, partially biased by the great price we were getting (price dropped by a few hundreds!). Pros: * It is quieter than my previous one. * HUGE microwave capacity compared to my previous one * Nice looking Cons: * We really miss the numerical keypad for the microwave & oven. It is a considerable pain to go thru multiple menu/submenus to select the time to cook. They also have a "add 30sec" button but it only increments in 30 seconds intervals. We knew before we bought but compromised on it for the price difference. * Microwave fan keeps running even after cycle is over. It states it is cooling the interior. Wish it didn't have to do this as it keeps running almost always until you take your food out AND press clear. Major pain. Not sure if other brands do the same * The stainless steel finish is slightly shinier than the other stainless stell Samsung/Bosch appliances we have. Didn't realize it would be that off.

    Great wall oven/microwave combo unit

    So far I love this combo unit with one exception: The oven vent is right under the oven door and all the heat blows out from there making the kitchen very warm. That is a benefit in the winter but not so much in the summer. Other than that, it's perfect! Even though they are the same size, 27", this combo unit doesn't take up as much wall space as my previous wall oven/microwave and they had to install a filler panel at the bottom. However, the interior space on both units is larger than my previous wall oven and microwave and a regular sized baking sheet fits inside now. Other reviewers complained about the fan being loud and staying on for a long time after finished cooking, but I don't find that to be an issue with mine. The oven does take a little longer to preheat, but that's not really an issue either. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

    Good, but missing ability to set exact seconds

    Very good unit for cooking and microwaving the big items. However, it does not have the settings for the microwave to allow you to set exact seconds to cook. Instead, you can only set for 15 second increments. I cook an egg for 54 seconds in my old microwave, but to do that on the new GE, I need to set the timer to 60 seconds and the power to 9/10. A hassle! You cannot set a timer for 10 seconds and leave. You have to set it for 15 seconds and stop the unit when it counts down to 5 seconds. This is a cheap way to make such a nice unit, that I do not understand why GE would design a unit like this. You can do work arounds, but for a $3000 combo, the extra $10 it would have cost to add this feature makes this a unit that is questionable against others. The major item it had working for it was that it fit in the previous cutout, and the sale price was significantly reduced.

    Very versatile once you get used to it

    I was very happy to find an oven without the convection option. Talking to friends that had that option, I learned that they seldom use it anyway. The installers arrived on time and were extremely professional, answering any questions and patient with my hovering husband. After three weeks time, we are getting used to the multiple choices and have little to complain about except that the " beeper" on the microwave is so quiet that, even with my hearing aids, I can barely hear it and my husband cannot hear it at all. Other than that, we are happy with our choice. I will probably buy more products from GE in future as our three year old washing machine has given us great service with no problems.

    Great Choice for Replacing my Vintage Oven

    With a vintage opening of 25", my options for my kitchen were limited. I thoroughly researched my options and am very pleased with my decision to purchase. The knob control in lieu of traditional numbers of the microwave does take some getting used to. Aesthetically and functionally this is a very nice oven/microwave combo. My opening was 48" and with this unit being just over 41", I installed a piece of stainless steel (cut to match) below the unit.

    Wonderful Oven

    This combo microwave and oven was a great choice for my smaller built in oven space. It was difficult to find the combo in this small size, but the microwave and the oven are both larger than my old Whirlpool and work very well. I was hesitant about the dial selection feature for the microwave, but it is easy to use and I like it better than the old pinch the numbers to select time. I love the 30 second option for short heating items. Love the oven and microwave. So happy I bought this combo.

    I read reviews online before purchase and I don’t understand some of the complaints like the buzzer isn’t loud enough and the knob setting for the microwave isn’t easy to use. There was also a complaint about the 30 second setting for the microwave I find all of these features to be easy to use and improved functions over my 15 year old oven. Setting timer and microwave are much easier than punching in numbers on a keypad. The buzzer plays a happy little tune rather than the old time irritating buzzer sound. I LOVE THIS OVEN!!

    Perfect Microwave Oven Combo

    LOOKS GREAT, EASY TO USE, LOTS OF FEATURES. During our kitchen remodel we replaced our wall oven and over the stove microwave vent oven with this all in one unit. No regrets with that decision, it allowed us to install a hooded vent over the stove and have both oven units in the same wall cabinet. It looks great, works wonderfully, and totally help us to achieve the kitchen we envisioned.

    I replaced a double wall oven and an over the stove microwave with this unit. Installation was easy and it fit perfectly except for the extra space at the bottom due to it being shorter than the old one. The one knob function control is nice, just took some time to get used to. Interior area is more spacious than our old one. Have had good experiences with GE appliances in the past, the double oven was a GE, 21 years old and still working. Only replaced because of a kitchen remodel.

      Hello Maverick - thank you for providing a review of your new combination 27" microwave / wall oven. We're glad the installation was easy and that it fit perfectly other than the back height. The new models may be slightly shorter in the back.. We're glad you find the one-knob function nice as well. We hope you are able to use this appliance for many years to come. Thanks for providing your feedback and review. NANCYatGEA GE_Appliances

    Very satisfied with unit after using over 9 months. The only issue that I have is that it does not allow you to set a timer in increments of one second. It sets by a 6 second interval. If you want a 20 second heat up you can get 18 or 24. For such an expensive unit this seems trite that the company could not allow you to use a timer that the much cheaper $100 table unit provides.

    The sales associate, Kyle Johnson, was knowledgeable and helpful to make the purchase. The installation process was priceless (pun intended - I din't pay for it) - it was on time, smooth and efficient including the haul-away. The microwave oven is functioning great but we haven't started using the conventional oven yet. The new unit looks modern and sleek and it fits right back into the slot vacated by the older model.

    This oven is fantastic! Looks great and cooks very even. Of note, everything cooks a little faster than annotated in most boxes. I think it’s because the oven is smaller than an average range. Overall great microwave and oven combo for price. Plus got free install and haul away.

    The entire process of purchasing this oven was pleasant and seamless. I went in to the store on a Wednesday evening and it was delivered and installed on Friday evening, only 48 hours later. The oven was truly a plug and play situation. It works great and looks amazing. I am ecstatic with the purchase and the process both!

    Very happy with the overall purchase. The only aspect that can improve is the annoying fan sound that comes from leaving your display on. Had to set it to sleep mode in order to avoid the terrible whirring noise that comes with leaving the display on (I like leaving it on because of the clock).

    My old oven died and I needed a new 27 inch wall oven/microwave combo. There are not many to choose from and I picked this one because it fit my basic requirements. I had it installed today and used it tonight. I am actually quite pleased with it. The "buttons" are quite different from my old one, but it is easy to figure out how to use.

    This was a great replacement for my old GE unit where the microwave stopped working. Absolutely gorgeous and it works great! I thought the microwave door opening outwards (like the oven) instead of sideways (like most microwaves) would be awkward, but it's actually not, and the microwave can fit bigger items. Well done GE!

    The item and it up being too small to fit in our space. This was due to our GE model was 18 years old. The newer models seem to have a narrow Face plate. Bestbuy was very accommodating and taking the part back for different model. We look forward to receiving our oven on May 7.

    I got this oven having used it for 3 years at my previous rental. It’s reliable, functional, and looks good too. I would not hesitate to get it if you’re looking for a combo oven.

    This GE Microwave & oven combo is fantastic! The microwave doubles as an oven also. The stainless steel is a great compliment to my kitchen. Nice space inside for for cooking large items in both and they are both easy to use.

    The unit is decent. Stove works as it should. Microwave is cumbersome to work. For a simple timed heat up, must press about five times, choose time and clear it in the end. I miss that quick one button heat up
