Not reliable

Pros Great features- it has it all.
Cons Frequent breakdowns, very expensive to fix- new oven would be less.
Recommended it? No

We bought this oven to replace an old one and in hopes that it would replace a lot of our oven use.  The unit quit working twice in the first two years.  It is now sitting in the backyard while I research a new microwave- all of which cost less than fixing this unit!

For the amount of $$$... Read full review »

Pros Cooks pizza, popcorn perfectly, will brown. Defrosts without cooking the edges.
Cons Seems to overheat at times. Strongly recommend the extended warranty.
Recommended it? Yes

Well, have had this for 2 years now.

Get the extended warranty for sure. 2 service calls but fixed both times. When it was not working, realized how dependent we have become on it.

I really had no idea how much I was missing with a regular microwave, but wanted the "latest" when... Read full review »

Pros Great cook time. Grilling hot dogs and baking in a microwave type device is fantastic.
Cons User Interface engineers should use the KISS principle.
Recommended it? Yes

I am pleasantly surprised at this appliance. I was pretty skeptical after reading the marketing reviews at this site, but after using it for about a month, I don't have any real complaints. Read full review »


Great appliance with one drawback

bygiarrussohome Feb 25, 2007
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros easy, efficient
Cons poor venting
Recommended it? Yes

We've been using our Advantium for over 2 years now and are very pleased with it. We use it mostly for grilled sandwiches, baked potatoes, chicken, snacks, fish sticks/chicken nuggets, pork tenderloin, biscuits and cinnamon rolls. The only food we've tried and haven't liked is frozen french... Read full review »


It's even capable of keeping two teenagers fed!

Pros faster than the speed of light! (tee-hee)and easy enough for teens.
Cons Too few directions for basics. The enclosed "video" is in VHS format-not DVD
Recommended it? Yes

We built a new home & were introduced to the Advantium by our builder who owns one(even though we purchased all of our GE Monogram appliances from a local appliance dealer).
I found that the unit is not only incredibly easy to use, but it cooks just as fast if not faster, than the it says... Read full review »


Replaces many other appliances

Pros Dinner at microwave speed with oven-roasted look and taste.
Cons Learning curve. Cleaning it after each use. Noisy vent fan.
Recommended it? Yes

I have been using my Advantium for 3 months now. I've taken the time to learn how to use it and how to adapt my old recipes and favorite dishes to it. The result is that I very rarely use my conventional oven anymore. Even my cooktop and gas grill get used a lot less because the Adv. has replaced... Read full review »


Life Needn't Be THIS Complicated

14 Helpfuls 15 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Very sexy design and very capable. Very good at multi-tasking.
Cons In stainless, polished interior IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean. WAY TO COMPLICATED to use.
Recommended it? No

We were looking for a microwave/convection oven. The Advantium promised this as well as hologen and "Speed Cooking". Speed cooking SUPPOSEDLY combines the microwave feature AND the halogens AND the traditional heating element to cook food very rapidly and perfectly.

Well, it uses an... Read full review »

Pros Styling, Quick cook time
Cons The rotary dial over a push button or numerical pad.
Recommended it? Yes

I really love this oven. i have to admit I was very skeptical at first but really it is great for what I use it for. I use it for essentially all convenient foods that I used to put in the microwave plus others such as biscuits. It is excellent for prepackaged chicken and chicken tenders, grilled...

An Outstanding Replacement Oven for and older over range microwave

bydebbie-phil Sep 12, 2004
15 Helpfuls 16 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Baking, Browning, Grilling anything in 1/6th of the time!
Cons Sometimes noisier than a GE MRI machine but still worth it.
Recommended it? Yes

This thing will cook nearly ANYTHING! I've been a customer of GE products in the past and have had good to above average results. But our 15 year old GE Spacemaker 115 volt "over the range" microwave oven died last winter. After reading a little and price shopping, we found floor model (actually a... Read full review »


Terrible Quality

2 Helpfuls 3 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Great oven
Cons Frequent breakdowns will cause me to never buy another GE
Recommended it? No

We bought this unit 4 years ago with our new house. The unit has quit working twice in the last two years. These things are not cheap to fix.

For the amount of $$$ that you spend on these ovens you would hope that it would last more than a couple of years. Read full review »

Pros Cooking quality and speed. Looks. Easy to install.
Cons None. Really! None.
Recommended it? Yes

This review is for the Advantium model SCA2001BSSC03. It is the 220 volt version of GE's Advantium with a stainless steel interior and a stainless steel with black accents exterior.

This unit replaced a GE OTC microwave. And it replaced it easily and perfectly. No modifications are... Read full review »

Pros Great when your oven is being used and you need another one to cook.
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased the GE Advantium because I love to cook. The GE Advantium is very good, I am still learning different uses of this product. The only problem that I have is not with it's cooking, it is how to keep it clean. The inside is stainless steel, and I was informed that you cannot use anything... Read full review »

Pros Cooks fast, damn fast.
Cons Price & 220 outlet needed.
Recommended it? Yes

We bought this as part of a new-construction home, rolled the cost into our mortgage. We've been using it for 3 weeks now. We haven't really cooked at the new house too much yet, so consider this a 'first-look' review.

This is the 220 volt model (non-standard electrical outlet, i.e... Read full review »
