Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyGirl Great features
Bought and installed our built in microwave/oven about 2 weeks ago, The installation was simple,wired it myself, but needed my husband and grown son to help lift it in the space b/c its so heavy. Our only other issue was the unit was shorter than the one we previously had in the space and we had to find a "filler" to match. I eventually found something online in black metal to match the bottom. Havent got it in yet but am hopeful it will look great. I just assumed that all the 30" ovens were the same length, but I guess our old unit was 18 years old and perhaps made longer. This new oven has so much more room. Love every feature on it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DFPO So far so good!
Just had this installed in the same place as my 15 year old Whirlpool. This new unit is about 3 inches shorter than the old one, so had to have the cabinet built up on the bottom. In addition, had to order 3 inch trim on the bottom as well. (although you can just paint the wood to match your cabinet, I chose to get a piece of stainless steel sheeting) Microwave is really good..cooks much faster than old unit. Oven is good....one small thing is that the digital LEDs are green...while my other appliances are blue.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ArizonaJ Microwave fails- an apparent frequent issue
Inside of microwave begins to peel after two years. The microwave control board is also know to fail often in less than 2 years. The repair tech found a 2007 board in my 2013 microwave as well. With a warranty its a good looking product, without the warranty its junk. If you buy the warranty get a 4 year one or pass on this GE thing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bumed out in Beaumont Dissappointed with GE cooking center microwave.
Microwave broke in my GE cooking center 1 year, 2 months after I moved into my new home. True disappointment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MLE411 Great unit - oven cooks faster than normal
This unit replaced a 15 year old model of another brand that was with the home when we purchased it. Our home-owners insurance chose the model for us, but we paid a little more to upgrade to the chrome exterior. We had to alter the existing cabinet with a filler board due to the new unit being slightley smaller than the old unit. This is an easy to operate model, but I wish we had gotten the convection variety. Be aware that the oven cooks faster than most other ovens I have operated (probably about 20 over the years). Start on the underside of recommended cooking times until you are used to it, otherwise you will have lots of burned food! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anziani Could use better control
We bought this oven as a replacement for one that went out on Thanksgiving Day. It is far nicer in appearance and features than the old one. We actually use the microwave for more than heating coffee. Since the heating elements are hidden, the heat up time takes longer and if you use an oven thermometer like I do, one sees that when it chimes at 350F the oven is not there yet. We also have a problem with the temperature from 375F up. The oven starts running hotter than indicated although it is fine at 350F or below. unfortunately there is no way to adjust this without skewing the lower settings. We compensate by setting a lower temp than called for.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DCarrington Died after 14 months....
Purchased this as an upgrade in our new house. The microwave was a bit smaller than we were used to, and the oven performance was so-so. After 14 months, the microwave died. Went to heat up a slice of pizza, pressed the 1 minute auto timer button, heard a crackle and the unit went dark. No inside light, power, clock or anything. Just a useless door stop at this point. Tried to use the oven and when I opened the door, the light went out at that moment too. Perhaps a coincidence, but I doubt it, have had poor luck with the "upgraded" GE appliances we put in the house so far......
