Comment:
I really love the advantium speed cook feature - cooks food to perfection. BUT if you boil water on a cooktop below for coffee or tea or steam vegetables and don't turn on the advantium's vent the steam from cooking kills the advantium's keypad. $300 or more to repair. I forgot to turn on the vent and it died.<br /><br />Thus this product is expensive and unreliable and I would never recommend this product to anyone.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
When it works it's great but when boiling water the keypad shorts out on the over cooktop model. It should not die when you boil water under it. I'm going to contact GE and see if they will stand by there product and replace it with a non-defective model. I really liked the speed cook function

Comment:
This microwave does it all. Convection, microwave and heat lamps cook foods to perfection. Great for reheating pizza using the speed cook method. Cooks it like it just came fresh out of the pizza oven. The sensor method works great for frozen vegtables and reheating any plate of food. Breaded chicken breasts in no time and they come out browned and moist. Love it!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
