What are the dimensions? Can this be installed into a cabinet as a built in??

Asked by Kim February 15, 2021
2
Answers

you can see the dimensions if you look under specs. I decided not to install it into the cabinet under the oven, installed in over the cooktop. It has vents for exhaust and you can only install it into the cabinet if you are planning to have some kind of bigger exhaust vent attached to it. Otherwise you will have moisture buildup.

Hello Charlotte, Thank you for reaching out to us about this amazing microwave. This is a great question and we are happy to help. This microwave does have the ability to use convection.

We recommend looking at page 6 of your installation instructions to ensure proper installation. We hope this helps, feel free to reach out again with any other questions you may have. -Avery

Hello Sanab - Thank you for your interest in this stunning microwave. You have wonderful tastes. We're afraid over-the-range microwaves cannot be built into cabinetry with a trim kit. They should only be hung using the included installation kit on the underside of a cabinet. Please let us know if you have any more questions. - JB

I love GE
Looks great. Heats fast, easy to use. I am very happy. I replaced a 25 year older GE microwave convection oven.

You can see the link below: https://www.cafeappliances.com/appliance/Cafe-Wine-Center-CCP06DP3PD1 Thank you so much for your feedback. Joyce@Cafe
Annoying to use and doesn’t match the range.
The brass colored handle doesn’t match the brass handles on the range. GE and Home Depot are stonewalling me and both refuse to take responsibility, blaming the other. Also whose genius idea was it to do away with the keypad? You have to turn a dial to adjust all settings. Annoying. Wattage is only 950 so get ready for everything to take longer, too. I think I had a microwave with that wattage in the 80’s. It is so they can squeeze in the convection features which lets be honest how many of us will really ever use? Hopefully HD sees this and makes an attempt to make it right, but I am not hopeful. It is clearly an easily replaceable part.

This microwave is also a regular convection oven. Does everything. Good thing since my stove is back ordered. Now 5 months! Buyer beware. Shipping is their problem.

Spacious and powerful
This was installed yesterday. My previous microwave’s interior started peeling and I was using an old countertop model for the last 2 months . It is solid, quiet, and cooks very quickly. Has great vent fan and lighting features. Can be used as. Microwave, convection or both. Very easy on the eye.

Great Features, Beautiful Design
We did a kitchen renovation. After much research we chose the GE Cafe combination microwave and convection oven. We have a small footprint but love to entertain so this was a perfect addition to go with the GE double oven. It also has the chef connect feature to pair with the stove and cooktop so we can plan and entertain with ease.

Have been using for about 3 weeks now, and very happy with it! Was pleased that when ordered from Home Depot there was only 2 week lead time and it was delivered on time, no delays which during the pandemic was a major plus! Replaced a broken Frigidaire Professional unit and love the look and features of this unit. The convection bake is a great alternative to using the oven. Would recommend GE Cafe!

Beautiful - Spacious - QUIET!
We recently moved into a brand new home and chose the Cafe line of Appliances. This 1.7 Cu. Ft Convention Microwave compliments the other Cafe appliances and is excellent. It has a unique control panel. You don't enter the time to cook via a control panel keypad. You tap cook time and turn the round knob, which adds 15 seconds per click of the knob. Then you push the knob in once and press start. It's different than we've had in other microwaves, but once you get used to it, works quite well. It's very spacious inside and in addition to normal microwave functions, it's a convection oven as well. This will really come in handy during the holidays when oven space is at a premium and you need to cook casserole dishes. The interior is dark and won't show dirt as easily as lighter interior microwaves. You have all the preset options you need and you can dial in the the food you're planning to cook and the microwave determines the correct time and power automatically. Little things make a big difference too. The vent fan on most microwaves we've owned are obnoxiously loud. Not on this Cafe appliance. It vents really well and you can actually talk and be heard when it's on. The under-microwave lights are two levels and provide good light to the range burners below. During cooking, the microwave is quieter than any microwave we've as well. All in all, this is a great compliment to the Cafe appliances in our kitchen. Note that this appliance must be in high demand and came a few weeks after the other appliances came. If you're buying Cafe appliances, you may have to wait a bit longer for the microwave, but to us, it was well worth the wait.

Very frustrated - the bluetooth ChefConnect function keeps disconnecting! Super annoying!
Got this microwave and the pairing gas range together, and the ChefConnect function was one of the biggest reasons I bought this microwave. After I set the ChefConnect up for the first day, it worked for 2 hours and then was disconnected later that night. When I tried to trouble shoot, the only way to fix it is to climb all the way up to the cabinet to disconnect the microwave's power, plugs in again, and reset everything. After all that hassle, the chefconnect thing worked again for another few hours until not responding again. The bluetooth icon is still on, but the microwave won't respond when the stove is on (see picture) I tried to call HD and waited for too long before I had to drop to do work. Please contact me and get this fixed. I can't believe I spent all the extra money thinking that I got something premium but actually got something that broke immediately. Very disappointed!

I have had this microwave for over a month now and the amount of features on it is awesome! My only complaint is you can only change the time in 15 second intervals.
