We were looking for something to replace a counter top microwave that was in our new home. This type of oven fits the bill but is probably overkill since we already have a double wall oven. However, we couldn't install an over the range oven because we have a hood over our cooktop. I've purchased several GE products in the past (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and over the range microwave) with good results. Moving to a new home we needed another refrigerator (bought GE), dishwasher (GE) and now this oven. They all fit together nicely (stainless) and are appealing to the eyes. The only drawback to this oven is that if it's mounted too high then it's difficult to put items in and take them out since the door is a pull-down version. A step-stool should help with that for those who need it. My wife really likes it even though she was concerned that it doesn't have the typical timer controls of a standard microwave.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
