Solid microwave with a few flaws This is a solid microwave that heats much quicker than the Panasonic 850W over the range it replaced. The door opens and closes solidly, the range vent fan is strong and silent, and the range light is adequate. The knob time input is acceptable, and you can use the timer while the microwave or convection oven is working.On the negative side, the silver trim on the door does not align with the panel on the right. It is at least 1/4″ off.As a convection oven, it takes 20 mins to preheat to 450F on bake, a little faster at 15 mins on roast. This is a limitation of the single phase (115V) supply it uses. I’ve never used the combination microwave and convection oven feature, which may help do away with preheat times.In summary, if you’re using this primarily as a microwave and occasionally as an oven, it will serve you nicely. Time will tell if it is durable.Minor observations:There is no permanent memory for settings. Even…

Okay replacement for an older GE Profile OTR Microwave/Convection Very easy install to replace our 2001 version of this unit. Able to retain the old mounting plate, plus all hanging screws, rear vent, and power cord lined up perfectly. A 10-minute change out of the old unit and install this unit. Some features updated/improved over the past thirteen years. Only obvious design flaw is the faint grey almost-invisible text on every control panel button, especially the “Start/Pause” and “Cook Time” buttons. In its infinite wisdom, GE placed these two major buttons directly below the huge control panel knob, so they’re always in shadow because no overhead light shines on them. Would have made more sense to print the text in bright-white like GE did on our Profile slide-in range, or maybe even back-light the buttons. The old unit had a design flaw where the door’s handle lower fastener broke off all the time requiring a service call and part replacement. This one has a stronger handle, but the buttons are very hard to see. If we had it to do over again,…
