Default Combo microwave / oven

Hi all,

Does anyone use a combo microwave with grilling oven? If so, please recommend the brand and model number. Thanks.

What are you planning to use it for? I have one and it's pretty small (bakes 6 large muffins really well though). Other than that, the rack takes up a lot of space, so even though it looks big on the inside, I don't think it can replace a real oven... it's pretty much a toaster oven. It's 16" high and 30" wide so for it to be a functional oven, I'm guessing it would have to be the size of an actual oven. It's also insanely deep. The back has an oven fan that makes it about counter depth. If you put it on a laminate counter that has that backsplash on it, it might even hang off your counter (if it's built-in, it will just take up the whole cabinet). Mine is Panasonic (most likely discontinued so I won't bother giving you the model). It's great for light baking but you can't even roast a chicken in it.

I was planning on using it for that same purpose.. baking muffins, hash browns, basically stuff for the kids. My intention was to save power by not switching on the large oven for such small jobs. Thanks.

The Advantiums are pretty awesome. We debated it to go with our GE Monogram walloven, but in the end went with a normal microwave and trim kit instead. They're pretty darn cool though!

Wowza.. awesome appliance, with awesome prices! And I thought convection ovens were da bomb! Might have to "settle" for one though
