  • You'll wonder how you ever lived without an Advantium

    Feb 15, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cooking quality and speed. Looks. Easy to install.
    Cons: None. Really! None.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Life Needn't Be THIS Complicated

    Mar 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    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.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • An Outstanding Replacement Oven for and older over range microwave

    Sep 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Baking, Browning, Grilling anything in 1/6th of the time!
    Cons: Sometimes noisier than a GE MRI machine but still worth it.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Still getting used to it, but it seems to work well

    Oct 9, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cooks fast, damn fast.
    Cons: Price & 220 outlet needed.

    Summary: 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-s ... read more

    Pros: Great features- it has it all.
    Cons: Frequent breakdowns, very expensive to fix- new oven would be less.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

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

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Good Product

    Rated Show
    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.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Great appliance with one drawback

    Feb 25, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: easy, efficient
    Cons: poor venting

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • It's even capable of keeping two teenagers fed!

    Sep 27, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    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

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Defrosting is a problem

    Jul 18, 2006 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: pretty
    Cons: turntable can NOT be turned off---microwaving needs two step process for selection

    Summary: I miss the ease of pressing, for example, "potato", and letting the microwave take it from there. One must press microwave, then look for a close approximation of the food to be cooked,then answer many questions that might not even fit the food item you ... read more

  • Replaces many other appliances

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

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Love This Oven!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Styling, Quick cook time
    Cons: The rotary dial over a push button or numerical pad.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Be wary. Has not come close to marketing hype.

    Pros: Looks nice. Good microwave.
    Cons: Not even close to the marketing hype.

    Summary: Purchase the oven because my wife keeps telling me she is going to be a good cook someday. Oh well, looks good in the kitchen and functions great as a microwave. I find it interesting the all the opinions I find on this oven seem to use the same GE ... read more

  • Terrible Quality

    Rated Show
    Pros: Great oven
    Cons: Frequent breakdowns will cause me to never buy another GE

    Summary: 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 ... read more

    Pros: Great when your oven is being used and you need another one to cook.
    Cons: KEEPING IT CLEAN (STAINLESS MODEL) INSIDE AND OUTSIDE, IT IS NOT AN EASY TASK.

    Summary: 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, ... read more
