Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trish Need to take the time to read the instruction manual
I am happy with the versatility of this convection microwave and having a small oven in one appliance. It will save energy by not having to light up the big oven for just one item.
Due to the many features, the instruction manual had to be kept handy and read several times. ( I would not get this appliance for my Mother who is not technically minded.)
Installers arrived late and struggled to install due to exhaustion, inexperience and training. I was at the end of their 12 hr. day and they had two more deliveries after me!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pep77 Very impressed!
Just had this microwave installed by Home Depot the other day...not only is this microwave/convection oven impressive it cooks great! At the salesmans recommendation ,we chose this model! Living in Florida it is too hot to heat up a conventional oven! Well so far we have not used the conventional oven ever again because this microwave does it all! The food is crispy and moist and delicious! The delivery from Home Depot and installation went smoothly and proficiently! The delivery men were professional and very knowledgeable! Very Happy with home Depot and this is our 3rd appliance purchase from them! We would not go anywhere else! Thanks to Jack,Richard,Kimmy and Brandi at the store ! You are terrific!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by djinaltha Had this over 2 years and still great
Replaced existing over the range microwave with this combo and very happy with it. It took a little bit of effort on the install but I am at the journeyman/pro builder level so take that accordingly. Wife has used extensively for baking breads and loves it and the energy efficiency. I was not going to write a review but I am going to buy another just like it for our townhouse in NC so figured I would give a shout out for it. It is even better with 10% off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by odif This is a great product, but takes a little time to get use to all the features.
We wanted to get rid of the little toaster oven on the countertop, but still wanted the conveince of not having to use the big oven for small things. This does the trick for baking and microwaving. We haven't figured out how to toast in it yet. We figured out to cook biscuits you have to turn off the convection temp. adjustment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CG17 wonderful but difficult to install
If you are replacing your old GE Profile OTR Microwave with this one, none of the holes will line up and the back wall plate is completely different. Installation cost does not include drilling holes in your wall, you still have to do that yourself.
The convection microwave is awesome. The oven cooks beautifully and faster that normal oven. I would highly recommend it. Just find someone with a lot of patience to install it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by strybjorn Good value, convection oven below average, controls clumsy
The GE Profile 1790 is a fine value, but the convection oven is a bit disappointing. The unit is attractive, capacious, and has a really powerful microwave oven. The recirculating vent with the charcoal filter does a good job of removing odors. My wife has baked some decent brownies in the oven section,but attempts at producing crisp oven fries were failures. The controls are versatile, but clumsy: a dial must be turned to enter time for time cooking, and then only in 15 second increments.
We are happy that we have a second oven that seems to bake OK; we entertain a lot and often need two different temperature settings. But don't think of the oven as being a full time substitute for a real one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George Highly Recomended
This appliance does exactly what it is supposed to do and does it well. The controls are push button /twist nob and after getting used to it, I prefer the nob to the full push button that most of these have.
Home Depot installed it, the workers earned a good tip for clean, efficient work and I couldn't be happier about the whole transaction. I gave it 5 stars on everything though I have no idea how much electric the appliance uses but I didn't want to downgrade my recommendation so I "shot the works" on the electrical usage. HIGHLY RECOMENDED from start to finish and I have had this for about 3 weeks and use it multiple times daily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norm Excellent product
Have had this product for about 3 weeks and all features have performed admirably. Still need to try 'browning" items.
Delivery time was amazingly fast. We paid for Home Depot to do installation and they did a perfect job, even offering useful tips on use of microwave.
