Advantium 120 vs. 240

sparkier73May 15, 2013

Trying to find a good comprehensive list of the differences between the Advantium 120 and the 240 (built in). I get that the 240 cooks faster. But beyond that?
The GE website says of the 120:
"Four ways to cook: Choose from Speedcook technology, traditional oven cooking microwave or warming modes all with the convenience of 120-volt installation."
Of the 240, it simply says:
"Food cooks consistently, every time."
Does that mean the 240 doesn't have traditional oven cooking and/or warming modes?
I am willing to sacrifice cooking speed for baking, warming or toasting. Is that the choice I'm making between the two?
Or ... can I do everything in the 240 that I could in the 120, only faster?
Oh yeah - and I think I read somewhere that the 120 has more interior space....
Please help!

According to GE's docs on the web, all three built-in Profile Advantium ovens (27"-120, 30"-120 & 30"-240) have the same interior space:

Cavity (W x H x D) 20-1/16 x 8-1/2 x 17

When I was looking - there were some problems with the 120. I went with the 240 and love it - it cooks fast and food is really great.
I even reheated pancakes one day and they tasted like they just came off the griddle - hard to believe it!

The 240 can MW, convection bake, brown(sort of like broiling), and can put all features together to make an awesome combination. How do you say SPEED!

I will have a 240 V going in hopefully next week. When researching, it seemed that the 240 got much better reviews, with the 120 being considered underpowered. I decided if I was going to spend the money for an Advantium I wanted to make sure we loved it. I didn't want to regret getting a smaller unit or less power and be frustrated. So I got the 240 built in instead of the 120 or the OTR model.
