Need wall oven/ microwave help

Posted by kjheck (My Page) on

We are replacing our whirlpool wall oven/microwave combo unit as part of a kitchen facelift. I would love a double oven but don't have room to put the microwave elsewhere. Some options I've considered:

1.GE single/double oven & a standard GE micro with trim kit
2. Kitchenaid oven/convection microwave combo unit
3. Kitchenaid single wall oven & KA convection microwave with trim kit
4. GE single wall oven & GE Advantium 120V

Any advice on the best option? I think I would use two ovens a lot. I cook all the time and love to roast veggies while baking a main entree. The GE single/double oven seems like a really good set up but I'm just worried that I will miss one big oven.

Do the convection microwaves really work like a second oven? Can I roast my veggies in there?

Also, I only have one 240V power source and rewiring isn't an option. So I can't do the GE Advantium 240 (but could do the 120V, though I've read very mixed reviews on the 120).

Thanks so much for the help!

RE: Need wall oven/ microwave help

If you choose the two separate units you will HAVE to rewire. Your feed cannot supply the 240 for the wall oven and the 120 for the MW.

I'd personally choose the single oven and the Advantium. The Advantium will become your go to for almost everything except large meals. And yes, it's worth it to rewire.
