Very happy with the new Microwave/Oven combo. This replaced an eighteen year old GE Profile unit. I did have to raise the bottom by an inch and a half and add to both sides an inch and a half to make it fit properly. It is also deeper by about an inch than the previous unit which required removing the sheetrock behind the unit. This added about eight hours to the project for cutting wood screwing in, sanding and painting! Over all I am very happy with the unit, but the extra install work was not fun!

I purchased this Combo and it came with defective oven racks. They are mis-welded and wont fit into the unit. One side has a wide enough gap and fits, the other side is to narrow and wont fit on the rail. I called up GE and they say that the racks are back ordered and I can expect a replacement in 45-60 days. So now I have to wait 45-60 days to fully use my oven?? Plus the glue they put inside the unit for shipping is so strong, I spent 45 minutes with acetone, alcohol, and mineral oil trying to get it to come off. I guess I will just have to burn it off. Not what I expected a $4000 purchase to be like. I'm kicking myself for not buying the Kitchen Aid.
FYI, we replaced a 27 inch double oven, and this unit is an oven/microwave. The width is the same, but the height is not. There was about a 3ish inch gap. I decided to have the gap up top. I ordered a kitchen drawer panel (matched our cabenitry). I used glue, and even though it's above the microwave, I used glue made for use near heat to put in place. You can see it matches the drawer at the bottom.So far, I have no complaints.
The unit works as advertised. The convection function is great in both the microwave and the oven. The microwave is about the same size as our stand alone unit. Both are easy to clean. We haven't actually used all of the functions, but up to this point I like it. My wife really likes it as well. She is very happy with it. If anything changes, I'll update.
I don't really give max ratings because usually there are some issues, but in this case the oven has met our expectations. I knew there would be an issue with fit, and as I stated above, thus far we got exactly what we paid for.
I got this oven to replace me original GE that was built into my home in 1985. It was a workhorse and I called GE and they recommended this as the replacement. I had it installed and GE offered to pay any extra fit charges. The slate looks great! The knob to choose settings is easy to use. The oven is spacious. Overall, my family thinks its great!
The only reason I didn't rate my wall oven microwave combo 5 stars is The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the time it takes to heat up to temperature.
It looks awesome! I have always been satisfied with GE products!

Oven was packeged well to prevent any shipping damage. Installation instructions were clear. I had to widen the cabinet opening 3/8"--no big deal--I knew that up front. I replaced a GE JKP 78 that I installed 30 years ago. Oven performs great and is easier to keep clean compared to my previous oven. I read previous comments about the warm up time. The oven takes 8 minutes to warm up to 350 deg. F instead of 4 minutes like my previous oven. This is to be expected with a convenction oven. MIcrowave oven cooks food evenly. The turntable is a big plus. Previous oven did not have one. I wish the control panel "buttons" were iluminated. Kitchen lights must be turned on to see buttons. Display illumination is fine. Great oven!
The ease of operation far exceeded our expectations. We really are pleased with the very overly large microwave and the two-level baking with the option of placing one food on the glass tray and another on the wire rack. The microwave sensor programs are an added feature and the fact that one can keep foods warm by selecting most or crisp is outstanding. We also like the convection bake and roast and broil in the bottom large oven. All in all, we are extremely pleased with our purchase. The units are an attractive addition to our kitchen.
