Comment:
Very disappointed the touch panel failed at 3years. Great multi function oven and used weekly. But at this price, I expected long term quality. Alas, this didn't happen. Now we're expecting a high cost repair after paying top dollar for assumed GE quality

Comment:
When we remodeled our kitchen we replaced our old Advantium (which did have some reliablility issues) with a newer model because we liked the function so much. Now I am building a new house and will put an Advantium built-in 240V in that kitchen even though I am on a tight budget for the project. I debated getting a large countertop microwave and a toaster oven but space is limited. Being able to brown food while it microwaves is so great. Browning changes/improves the flavor of a lot of foods. Example: frozen corn dogs are not gourmet but they are much better in the Advantium than a regular microwave.

Comment:
This microwave failed after 2 years. It is mounted over the cooktop and I the display is failing. You have to pound on the display or slam the door to get the display to turn back on. If it is supposed to be mounted over a cooktop I would think it could tolerate the heat. Unfortunately the cost of the new display panel is 1/3 of the entire price of microwave. I would not recommend this microwave.
