GE Cafe CVM1790SSSS Reviews & Ratings

CVM1790SSSS 30" Wide 1.7 Cu. Ft. Capacity, 1000 Watt Over-the-Range Convection Microwave Oven with Touch Pad Dial Control, 3-Speed 300 CFM Exhaust Fan, 10 Power Levels in Stainless Steel is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handle Problem Apparently GE had complaints about the handle on microwaves getting hot because of heat from the range. They replaced the handle in this model with a non-metal tube with a foil covering. Soon the foil covering started to peel from the heat from the range. I noticed that other users had the same problem. We were concerned that the foil material would drop into the food on the range. I contacted GE. They sent me a metal handle that matched the rest of the Café line. GE serviceman installed the handle. I was impressed that they solved the problem rather than sending out another of the bad handles. I would recommend this microwave.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced. Faulty Design This was an absolute mistake. On my second one of these, as I thought the first problem (less than two years installed) was a fluke. After about 5 months of using it, the touchpad that controls ALL functions (except the light and turning on the vent) stopped functioning proprerly. (do an internet search, it apparently happens to A LOT of people). I replaced it with the same model, and guess what? Less than two months, and the touchpad stops working. Repair folks say it is a function of the machine not being able to withstand the stove top heat from the oven below, said he has to do a lot of these repairs... Thankfully, we had the store's extended service warranty, otherwise we were out of luck with GE.  DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, but issues I purchased this appliance 4 years ago, last year it had to be replaced because the keyboard could not tolerate the heat generated from the stove below. After many tries and calls, I finally fond out that GE agreed there was a problem with the unit and had a program to replace it, which they did and I was extremey happy. Less than a year later the handle started to peel its stanless steel laminate...I called and a replacement piece was sent to me, but I had to do the install. This is a high end microwave, but it has many issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use and Beautiful Appearance We bought this microwave as an accompaniment to the Café series range. We liked the idea of the convection oven feature for more versatility should we ever need it. The primary purpose was the basic microwave. The controls are not as intuitive as our prior GE microwave but it is easy to use once you familiarize yourself with the knob. I love the vent fan feature that is a huge improvement in lower sound over the prior model. The timer cooks frozen foods predictably and correctly. We are very please with this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD Complaints: One must change the glass turntable to metral wnen baking. This constant change is annoying. Beep at end of cooking time to soft in volume to hear unless you are in front of unit. Difficult finding the correct button to push since the control paned is blacked out until a button is depressed than all buttons light up. Great outside fan. Unit cooks well as well as microwave. Question.... In the ceiling it appears to have two quartz broil lamps only one this correct or a maulfunction?????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite simply put - "I love it" I dreaded getting an OTR microwave based on numerous web sites stating all the horrors that could occur with that type of unit as well as the aesthetics. Well, I couldn't be happier. The unit has a streamlined look to it and in a small kitchen is actually much less obtrusive than if I had used a stainless hood. I haven't' used the convection part of the unit but as far as a microwave it is so easy and intuitive. Everything comes out great - whether I'm cooking one potato or four, steaming vegetables, or microwaving an egg. Once winter comes I'll be cooking more so I'll make time to watch the instructional CD to learn how to use the convection and browning part of the oven. I'm very, very happy that I didn't let all the OTR nay-sayers dissuade me from purchasing this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Door handle sticker peeling off We have owned this microwave less than a year and, as other reviewers have posted, the handle sticker is buckling and peeling off. It is an over-the-range microwave so why manufacture something that can peel off when steam is present? We use the fan every time we use the gas cook top which is underneath it however, we still have the buckling issue. Service is coming out next week and I will update based on the outcome......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks beautiful We are happy with the microwave, it looks great, works wonderful.  Two small things,1) the lowest amount of cook time I can find is 15 seconds and I haven't been able to figure out how to cook for only 10 seconds to warm up a small bowl of dog food, 15 seconds gets the food too hot. 2) it takes 4 steps to cook the food, hit time, turn dial to set amount of time, press in dial to set the amount, then hit start.
