We purchased our Advantium oven about 9 months ago. We have loved the speed cook and the microwave feature. We entertain frequently so the speed cook has been wonderful for baked potatoes, roasts, lamb shoulders, whole chickens, etc. The meat is cooked to perfection with the inside juicy and the skin very crisp. Unfortunately there is one problem - steam comes out of the oven on the left side and has affected the finish on our cabinets in that area. We have had it serviced but the problem still exists. As far as the quality and performance of the oven we are extremely pleased but are disappointed in the steam issue.
I purchased the Advantium oven for the versatility of the multiple cooking methods so I wouldn't need two bulky ovens and a microwave in the kitchen. Unfortunately, this oven fails at both. It can bake a potato in 5 minutes but that is about all it is good for. The microwave is pathetic. It takes 30 seconds to melt a tablespoon of butter! I tried baking a potato dish at Thanksgiving and it wouldn't get hot enough to really get it cooking and I upgraded to the 240 volt model. I am very disappointed with GE kitchen products. It is way over priced for what it does. Having issues with the GE frig and it is just out of warranty. Will never buy GE again unless it is a light bulb.
Ours was installed when our house was built in 2014. The magnetron and power supply died after about four years (service call). One of the top two halogen bulbs died at the 5.5 year mark as well as one of the wheels broke off of the turntable under the glass platter (limped along without both). The entire unit died when the unit was only seven and a half years old. It just cost us to replace the unit with a new one. We had to replace the unit with a new one because the installation cut out is unique for this model in our built-in cabinet and our wiring is for a 230 V installation. A couple other things to note, are 1) the microwave function is relatively weak ��� it takes 3 minutes to boil a cup of water, 2) the light in the unit has to be turned on manually while you���re cooking and only stays on about four seconds before automatically shutting off if you wish to see the food you are cooking, 3) the clock is not displayed when the unit is not running and 4) the stainless steel interior stains badly from cooking splatters and is impossible to clean. Also note, that the glass microwave platter has to be switched out with a metal platter when you want to use the oven instead of the microwave and then switched back when you are finished. That process can be rather tedious. We expected more from GE for an expensive, weak microwave and small convection oven combo that only lasted 7 years.
It does not meet my expectations. When I have used the bake/broil side it does not get hot enough. It may be that I need more time for test driving this appliance.
Does everything we need & more. Perfect popcorn every bag!
Great when it works, but we've had the unit fail on us twice already in just 3 years of ownership. This was the model that came with new house and first issue was the motherboard circuit failing as soon as warranty period was over. Would definitely not recommend!
We just built our new home and the Advantium Oven was an excellent choice
