The 27'' single electric wall oven with built in microwave by GE offers a 1.7 cu. ft. 1,000 watt microwave with sensor cooking and a 4.3 cu. ft. oven with self cleaning, three oven racks, and glass touch controls. Overall, this is a very high rated oven with high reviews. The rare negative review mentions the occasional malfunction.
Great appliance! Only objection is that the oven door needs to be securely closed. A little more force is necessary as the door is not on a spring. It is on a hinge. If not firmly closed the cooking process is interrupted.View More Reviews
I have been using this for one month and I love it. I bake from scratch and even heat with precise temperatures is essential. I could not be happier. This oven looks lovely which is an added bonus.
Bought it about couple month ago and it is wonderful
Love the deeper microwave and oven. Purchased it to a similar model that was 20 years old, was very concerned about getting existing wall opening. Looks beautiful.
Great Choice!! Every family member is beyond pleased with it!
Better than the combination it replaced. Works well.
This set replaced a previous GE oven/microwave combo that had issues with the control panel. It only lasted 8 years so I was a little wary purchasing another GE product for replacement. On this new oven combo you can see GE addressed the issue with the control panel electronics getting too hot by improving the fans/circulation. They also went to just a single panel and what appears to be a more robust microwave. Takes a little getting used to the single control knob but got the hang of it in a week or so of use. Installation was straightforward. Just connect the wiring in the back before you slide it in. Then screw into the cabinet cutout.So far so good.
just had it installed ,wow,looks fantastic,works great.
Had this installed a few months ago. It was replacing an existing GE wall oven and this fit perfectly, as the GE fit guarantee states. The microwave is stainless on the inside and I love that. Both the oven and microwave heat accurately. Oven takes about 10 minutes to preheat but that is acceptable. Love the warming setting on the oven as one of the features. Very happy with this product.
The oven fit good in the space, easily connected, and looks good in the kitchen. This was installed as a back up oven and back up microwave. I had to order it online. The store in Huntsville had one available in the clearance isle, but was very problematic to work with and now I really don't like buying from this particular store on the South Parkway. Online appears to be best.
Good qaulity good looks works well ur serve bay never rnds
Had to get our oven microwave replaced due to our previous unit breaking down. This new unit is beyond wonderful!!! It cooks to perfection and the oven has a convection type cooking feature which I love. The many baking and broiler options are terrific!! I love it!! Signed (a husband that loves to cook).
Great features,heats up quickly and cools down quickly also.
Have had it 3 months. One of the best purchases we ever made.
Had to replace previous oven/micro combo. Was concerned that we would find it difficult to adapt to a new unit, but it's very user friendly. Did some online research to help make our decision. Decided to overlook the few negative reviews we saw and are glad we did since it is perfect for us.
After looking at all the brands out there for the money I think this is the best value. It's very stylish and easy-to-use controls. Please note installation instructions are not specific enough to this unit confirm the dimensions on the oven you get before you make any cuts to your cabinets
We are VERY pleased with the ovens. The workmanship is the very highest quality. We shopped for several days looking for the right oven plus reading all the reviews and ratings. We are convinced we made the right choice after 2 weeks of heavy use. Highly recommend it to anyone.
We've had this microwave/oven combination for a few months now and I have no complaints. The last one we owned had a fan that ran the whole time the oven was on, and for several minutes after as it was cooling which was very loud. I was so glad this one doesn't do the same thing.
great looking oven and easy to install - COOKS GOOD - love it
I wanted to replace my white 24 year old GE microwave/oven combo not because it wasn't working but because I had already updated the other kitchen appliances to black. I love the new display with all of the fancy buttons and knobs - very user friendly!
We purchased this combination Wall Microwave/Oven a little over a month ago and have been with the performance of both ovens. The controls for both ovens are at eye level, easy to read and understand. Both ovens are easy to clean and maintain!
We have been very pleased with our Oven/Microwave combination
Combo oven and microwave replaced a 35 year old GE which served us well. The new unit is even better - - great performance and appearance. Both oven and microwave are superior workhorses and easy to use. Makes me a chef; not just a cook!
With a vintage opening of 25", my options for my kitchen were limited. I thoroughly researched my options and am very pleased with my decision to purchase. The knob control in lieu of traditional numbers of the microwave does take some getting used to. Aesthetically and functionally this is a very nice oven/microwave combo. My opening was 48" and with this unit being just over 41", I installed a piece of stainless steel (cut to match) below the unit.
I got this appliance the day before Thanksgiving and began using it as soon as it was installed. I love the ease of the two being together, microwave and oven. I find that the temperature is true and it cooks evenly.
I love the look and the use of having a microwave and the oven all in one. It makes my kitchen look beautiful and updated. My sales guy recommended this product as the best on the market and I have to agree.
I bought this a couple months ago because my old one was out dated. The microwave is very quiet and efficient. The oven is slow to preheat but otherwise works beautifully. It sure beats the old one.
beautiful Sleek Design works Great love the stainless steel feel!
I've had this unit for a few months now and it's works really well. I got it to replace a 27 year old unit. The microwave has many setting and is large. Oven works well also.
We replaced our 30-year-old wall oven. We absolutely love our new GE appliances. They are easy to use and so attractive. I am enjoying cooking again as a senior citizen!
We replaced our previous GE wall oven with this one....it looks great and and the features-like delayed cooking start and special microwave settings-are fantastic!!
Bought to replace a GE microwave/oven that had died gracefully of old age. Had to fit a certain built-in space. Great product Wife is very happy so I'm Happy!!!!
Love the multiple position racks, size, and accurate cooking temperature of the oven. Love the microwave options and the door that opens downward.
Been using for a month, very quiet, heats fast and has nice audio reminders that are not loud are harsh. Oven works great, heats very quickly.
The beeper could be louder for older cooks- hard to hear in an open kitchen but the timer is excellent and the food quality is precise
I bought this to replace a 20 yr old unit and can't believe the difference. There are so many new features to enjoy!
The controls are very simple and easy to use. Using the oven controls for the first was easy to figure out as well.
Tony and his crew were in and out in a breeze. Love the sleek design and cant wait to use it. Thank You GE service.
Good quality & it fit the space. Original choice was too large. This fit well with Kitchenaid products purchased
I just love to use this product. It cooks some much better than my old set up.
Haven't used all the functions yet it is a very good microwave and over, need more time to use them all.
Just bought this and very envious as I am selling my home and will not be using it for much longer
Great features at a great price. This was a replacement of my old GE oven/ microwave combination.
Easy to use, cooks evenly and fast. Looks great in my kitchen. Has great viewing while cooking.
Bought this unit a couple of months ago and it works just great. Good purchase and choice.
Love my wall unit and appreciate the musical knowledge and humor of the engineer
Just installed and really like the look. Wish the instructions would of had more detail on the door removal and reinstall. My experience was tough because the hinge when taking out must of missed the stop to keep at the remove position. When installing had hard time till I figured out after looking at the owner manual vs the instruction sheet that the hinge should have been at aprox. 20 degree angle to door not 90 degrees. After many attempts and scraches on the black bottom vent shield I got it on. Better description on the hinge angle to door would of help. Have not used yet but powered up and all seems Ok.. I needed to cancel service call because I was so frustrated trying to get this door on. Now that I know should never have this problem again.
I am very happy with the oven, it works well and heats to the perfect temperature. I would give it 5 stars but I have trouble reaching into the microwave because the door goes down. It is my own fault, didn't realize it when I made the purchase
We are very pleased with the oven. Easy to use, precise temperatures. The folding down door is a little different than our last GE combo, which had a swing out door. Overall quality of the build is fine and it looks great in the kitchen. Slid right into the frame, so the sizing between the old and new was exactly the same. Plus, we like the way the fit is slightly more flush to the cabinets. The beepers are a little quiet. We don't like the way the fan runs on the microwave after the time is finished. Adds a little extra noise to the kitchen. It's stops once you open the door to remove your item. Again, overall very happy with performance. And, HomeDepot did a great job with the order delivery process. They were on time, the crew was nice and courteous. We know they outsource the delivery but the vendor they use is fine. One issue that we did have is the pickup of the old appliance. Still waiting for this to happen after a couple of calls. It would be best to have your old appliance out and ready to hall away if you selected that option.
Both microwave and lower oven cook very nicely. My husband and I do wish that the controls for each were on a separate lines. We've had this appliance over 2 months now, and are STILL occasionally confused as to what buttons control what!
Purchased this to replace an older one. More features with this one.
I purchase this unit in November and am quite happy with it
This was a major update to propane cooktop we had I a house we bought. Old only had one functional burner. This got us five working burners, all burners ignite properly. Only issue installer had was inability to tune burn height due to needing extremely thin and longer screwdriver than either of us had in our tool boxes. Having to use as it came from factory.
It is fine but expensive. Because the size was odd I had no choice about what to get.
No owner's manual in delivery carton when installed
Two issues: you have to push the lower oven door shut straight on, or the right hinge catches and the door doesn't completely close. And calibrating the temperature can be quite challenging. When the gauge says +5 degrees, it can increase 50 degrees. Requires multiple adjustments to get it right.
Which model in black replaces this? The microwave paint is flaking on the inside. The unit was built in 2005.
Oven is very nice looking. Originally priced for about $2,800 but was on sale for $2,100 so we made the purchase. Delivery was painless and for $15, Home Depot delivery hauled the old unit out. Self-installation went pretty smooth and no issues. Tested microwave and oven and all seemed to be okay (though noticed some microwave keys didn't seem to work but that I just needed to read the manual). However, in the morning wife alerted that the touch pad buttons may not be working for the microwave. Verified and sure they were not working. Not a good thing to start with a new purchase. However, a quick reset of the fuse to turn the unit completely off for a minute or two and then back on seemed to clear the problem. Hoping this problem does not come back. Will update later to raise or lower stars/
1) Controls too complicated 2) Can only increment microwave time in 15 second increments instead of 1 sec 3) Difficult to reach into microwave because door swings down instead of to the right or left 4) Display too dim in bright sunlight
I absolutely hate the number of touches and or turns necessary to use timer, set temp, edit, etc. This is THE most user unfriendly appliance I have ever owned! The timer is the most ridiculous feature requiring far too many touches. I curse this appliance daily.
WE REPLACED A COMBINATION WALL MICROWAVE/OVEN WITH THIS PRODUCT. IT FIT PERFECTLY. NEW MODEL USER INTERFACE IS NOT AS EASY TO USE AS OLD MODEL. EXAMPLE: TO RUN MICROWAVE FOR THREE MINUTES, ON OLD MODEL, I JUST PRESSED THE NUMBER 3 ON THE KEYBOARD. THE NEW MODEL DOES NOT HAVE A KEYBOARD; YOU HAVE TO PUSH A FEW BUTTONS AND TURN THE DIAL UNTIL IT READS 3 MINUTES. OLD MODEL HAD A LOUD BEEPER WHEN IT WAS DONE; NEW MODEL BEEPER ONLY MAKES A SMALL PEEP THAT YOU CAN HEAR ONLY IF YOU ARE STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE MICROWAVE - USELESS.
I bought this unit about two months ago, just in time for my Christmas baking. I replaced the same unit in kind, because the original unit was 14 years old. I chose to replace in kind because the unit had been a good unit and a knew the new one would fit. I have to say I'm really, really disappointed in my purchase. The 14-year old unit did a better job than this brand new one....seriously.....the oven cooked food more evenly and the microwave worked much faster - this new unit takes another extra minute to boil water than the previous unit....The controls are not user-friendly, there's several steps to just setting the oven temperature, and forget the timer - it's cumbersome and too many steps. When you're baking cookies, you can't take 10-12 seconds to set a timer! I wish I would have shopped around more and purchased another model and/or brand.
We were replacing a GE Microwave/Oven combo and had to stick with GE because of the size limitations of the space . I don't like this one at all compared to the last 2 GE built in Microwave/ovens we had. For example, I can't defrost a roll for 45 seconds. The only choices are 30 or 60 seconds. It never gets the popcorn right when cooking with the popcorn button. Way too many unpopped kernels. Everything you do requires multiple turns of the center knob and you have to push the knob multiple times. If the center knob gives out we will be up the creek without a paddle. I can forsee problems ahead and am glad we bought the Home Depot protection plan. There are now so many steps to turning on the oven or microwave, that I end up not using the microwave and using our toaster oven instead of the wall oven.
Product did not work upon installation. Two trips by service techs - who had to install all new control panel circuit boards.
This microwave machine takes at least 2 minutes to heat a cup of coffee. The way the door opens (like an oven & not a swing door like a microwave) makes it impossibly difficult to clean. The panel light is dim for someone with poor eyesight. The buzzer is not loud enough to hear when the microwave is done. I am disappointed that we purchased this unit.
The oven takes almost 20 minutes to heat up to 400 degrees. We have only used it a couple of times and learned that the oven thermometer is off by more than 50 degrees. We set it for 350 and, using an accurate temperature gun, discovered the actual temperatures ranged from 395 to 425 depending on which part of the oven we tested. When we cooked our Thanksgiving turkey I had to keep testing the temperature every 30 minutes and modulate it according to the reading. In addition, the oven exhausts hot air from the bottom whenever it is on. This is a complete waste of energy. I think it does this in part because the lower heating element is buried underneath a metal floor, which is why it takes so long to pre-heat. The microwave oven is so large and deep that my wife cannot reach the back of it to clean it. The controls and vents take away much needed space from the size of the oven. The microwave controls are complicated and require multiple buttons to reheat something at a low level.
Don't buy this unit it doesn't work properly. Temperature is not consistent. Takes over 1/2 hour to preheat. Compare with an oven thermometer and its off by 50 degrees. Convection takes double the time instead of half (as expected). When cooking on 2 racks bottom rack cooks way too hot. I'm sure there is no recourse. Microwave / upper oven is terrible. Does not bake like an oven at all. I just want my money back. I don't want it worked on, I don't want new parts, I don't want a service tech telling me that ovens are just off and live with it. I would rather buy a different brand. This one is going in the basement or maybe Craigslist or the junkyard. I would give it zero stars if I could.
This unit does look beautiful but ... the oven takes forever to heat up, for some reason it takes a bit longer to cook the same things I've cooked in the past (don't quite understand isn't temperature the same regardless?). The microwave oven at 1000W is way to slow - I have to add almost twice the time ... amazing. Also, I do not hear the buzzer when heating up a 1 min. cup of coffee and the fan continues to run making you think it is still heating?
