With convection cooking capabilities, this microwave oven offers more cooking options, better results, and less cook time than conventional microwaves. Features such as the EasyConvect Time and Temperature Conversion System and a glass-touch oven display make this oven easy to use and clean.


EasyConvect™ Conversion System

  • Takes the guesswork out of using the convection cycle by automatically adjusting both the cooking time and temperature to their convection equivalents.

True 10-Level Power Control

  • Delivers consistent power at one of ten power levels between 10-100%. Optimawave™ Technology takes away the on/off cycling that creates cold spots and overcooked edges.

Custom Reheat and Custom Defrost Cycle

  • Helps provide deliciously even cooking without having to guess at cooking times or power levels.

Sensor Steam Cycle with Steamer Container

  • A sensored microwave oven cycle that allows precise steaming based on the food type and doneness level selected. Includes a steamer container to help you get the best results.

Crispwave™ Technology and Crisper Pan

  • Allows the microwave oven to be used for browing, crisping, and pan-frying when you use the specially designed crisper pan.

Glass-Touch Display with Control Lock

  • Features a responsive, easy-to-use interface that is also easy to clean.

1.4 cu. ft. Capacity

  • This microwave oven has a large capacity that allows you to use it as a complement for your conventional oven.
