We were replacing an older GE wall oven/microwave unit, and decided on the Advantium feature for the microwave based on prior experience with a single Advantium Microwave in another home. It lives up to all the positive comments, and GE was our first choice. It is housed right next to our new GE Profile refrigerator. They're sleek and functional appliances. We couldn't be happier.
Just installed and not even used once and it began making a knocking noise behind the control panel as soon as it was it was plugged in. Dealer (and a great one) immediately scheduled a service call. I'll post again once the GE Service comes, but this doesn't instill a lot of confidence in an expensive microwave/oven combination! And this is suppose to be GE's top of the line appliances.
Purchased 1/5/2022. Website indicated this was in-stock and available within 1 week. Sears keeps pushing the delivery back. It is now 3/22/2022.
I love the chicken grill, I made Tandoori Chicken, came up pretty good. I did fish fry , teriyaki chicken, Franch Toast and many more. I love this one, with pre selected menu, those all came pretty good.
We replaced our 11 year-old GE Profile wall oven/microwave with this new Profile Advantium unit. It fit right in without any modifications to the cabinetry.
One of the chief advantages of this new unit is that the upper oven is extremely versatile. It can be used both as a traditional oven with MANY features (including convection) and as a microwave. It has many cooking modes that appear quite useful but we have not yet been able to try them in the two days since it was installed.
One of its disadvantage, and in my view this is major, is its controls. They are HORRENDOUSLY cumbersome. For example, every morning I prepare breakfast for my daughter, which includes oatmeal that cooks for three minutes. On the old unit, which had controls that GE microwaves had used for AT LEAST a quarter-century and that were difficult to improve upon, I had to put the dish in the microwave, close the door, and push the keypad number 3. That was all -- one button and done.
On this new unit, I first must press "Microwave," then "Timed Cook," then spin the dial at 15-seconds per click up to 3 minutes, then click on high level (10), and then press on the wheel to start the cooking. Then the chime is very pleasant but low volume when cooking is done and the volume cannot be increased (the old unit had three levels). And then the fan keeps running after cooking is done (partially drowning out the chime) to "cool the unit," which was confusing the first time.
Note that the task I described above is the type of thing the upper oven will be used for maybe 90% or more of the times it is used for anything. I do not know who designed this interface that makes me perform five separate steps to do what was once accomplished by the press of a single button, but I believe they need to be assigned other duties.
The GE combination oven and microwave/convection oven above it fit perfectly into the wall space where my previous appliances were, and the oven size is actually larger than my previous oven. The brushed satin finish matches my dishwasher and refrigerator. While I have not yet used my lower oven, I have used the microwave, and it is quiet and has a cooling feature my old one did not have.
So the product is working great and easy to use and clean
