Rated 4 out of 5 by maxyz3 Complicated
I bought this item 2 days ago. The manual for the operation of the microwave is poorly detailed and is complicated. I am now sorry I purchased the microwave. Had I not used it I would return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prairie_baker So Pleased with my Profile Microwave-Convection
I had a GE Monogram microwave-convection oven for 25 years and replaced it when my original Monogram wall oven needed replacement. I've waited several months to get to know the appliance before I posted a review. Overall I'm very pleased with this appliance. Both the microwave and convection functions are powerful. The touchpad is intuitive and well laid out, with good placement of the start and off/clear buttons. It has great functionality, cooks and bakes like a dream, and looks beautiful. It took 15 years off the appearance of my kitchen!
There are a couple things I wish GE had done differently - I hope GE designers consult professional home economists, not just engineers. Most of us don't need an AM/PM display to tell us whether it's morning or evening. I'd rather have larger print on the digital display so I can see it from further away. I personally find the 15-second timer increments inconvenient - I want to be able to key in microwave times like 20 or 40 seconds but can't. This oven is so powerful that sometimes 30 seconds is just too long.
I looked at online reviews before I selected this appliance and some people commented the programming sequence was complicated; others thought the oven was loud. There is one additional step in the oven start sequence - 4 steps instead of 3 - but I was comfortable with it by day 3. When working, the appliance is audible but for me, that's not a problem. I could always hear my Monogram microwave-convection and after awhile, you just tune it out. Bottom line - I'd recommend this appliance to anyone.
