Only used oven once, haven’t tried convection microwave. For the day-to-day, it seems to work great. Only issue is about 1 month into using it, the fan in the microwave is occasionally making a buzzing noise, like it’s rubbing/touching something as it spins.
Combination microwave with convection option is a great time saver for holiday cooking. Old GE wall oven lasted 15 years. Could have been repaired but time for tech update. Appearance is classic and functions beautifully. Love it!
Looks beautiful as a replacement to an older model, but more importantly, tremendous upgraded features! There’s more technology than before, so take a moment to familiarize yourself with the features and you’ll be amazed at how helpful they are! I love the included temperature probe, the fact that the microwave can be used as a 2nd convection oven if needed, and the ease of use with the dial. The settings are so helpful and easily customizable. Moisture control cooking without a timer is a more genuine cooking experience and heating in crisp or moist mode is handy. Love it, love it, LOVE IT!!
To start the microwave requires pushing the button 5 different times for a minute. I've had a service rep over to the house to make sure the product was not defective because it takes the oven 35 to 40 minutes to preheat to 450, which is 25 to 30 minutes longer than the handbook says.

When we first had the unit installed the motherboard was not working. four times they shipped it in a flimsy envelope to be broken each time. finally got it working. now a few years later the back wall of the microwave is cracking and breaking apart. When the oven indicates it is at the correct temperature, it really is not. if you turn it off and then reset it it will show that it's below the temperature needed. the installer tried to explain it away with a silly comment.
