GE single double oven

Does anyone have/used a GE single double oven? I have two wall ovens now and I am going to renovate and am considering the GE single double oven, and possibly putting a microwave above it. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed!

What is a single double oven?

It's a double oven in the space of a single oven.

Link did not work, but I managed to land there and search. Thank you! I learn something new every day here at GW forums. :-)

I think there were some threads on this (but maybe last year's stuff is not pulling up) and those who had them said they were decent. It does not have roll-out racks and it only comes with the touch controls (for obvious reasons).
I am waiting for my oven to die so I can consider it.
I would do this with an advantium but I do not know how the advantium microwave compares to a plain old microwave (DH uses it a lot).

Here you go. Interesting concept! Read it's tough to use the lower oven to cook a weighted turkey (roll out gaskets).

Here is a link that might be useful: Link:

According to the GE site, it gets rave reviews, but I am still wondering about the user opinions on GW. I didn't know it did not have pull out shelves. I think that may be a negative. Any one else care to comment??

I've been using the single/double oven since last fall. I mostly use the upper oven, for pizzas, broiling, and small stuff. I use the bottom oven for taller containers. I'm vegan, so meats and such aren't applicable for me. FWIW, works great for me.
No problems with it so far.

cookingbuff--it's not that the oven doesn't have pull-out shelves/racks. It's that it does not have roll-out shelves/racks like the GE Profile, GE Monogram, Electrolux, KA & a few other brand ovens have as standard.

We opted against the single/double oven as I did not think I would be able to get as large a turkey in there as I needed to at the holidays. We ended up with a standard 30" double oven (Monogram). It really depends on what you plan to roast/bake/broil in there and what your needs are.

Hope this helps!

Roll-out oven shelves are really nice. A friend has that and she loves it. We are going with a new oven with the roll-out shelves, too, after I test drove hers.

Thanks for your help. Now I am going to look at the ovens with roll out shelves! I may just have to get a double oven again and possibly try to put a microwave in a drawer when I redo the kitchen.

cookingbuff--another spot for the microwave is above the double ovens. If you eliminate the drawer that is typically under the double ovens and lower the ovens, the cabinet area above the ovens now becomes accessible. Ours is set up like that and it's great.

mydreamhome- I was actually thinking of that. Glad to hear you like that set-up since I really don't know where I'd put my microwave since I don't want it above the cooktop like I have now. You don't find the bottom oven too low? Did you consider getting one oven and having a advantium above? I don't know enough about the advantium yet.

RE: GE single double oven

cookingbuff--like you, I didn't know enough about the Advantium to feel comfortable enough to spend the $$$ for it. We use our top oven 98% of the time. The bottom oven gets used if I'm baking en masse and at the holidays. When we use the bottom oven it's height is similar to a conventional range so it's no big deal. If you go the route of the Single/Double, then you could still squeeze in the drawer beneath and the bottom oven wouldn't be as low.

I wonder if you could use the GE roll out shelves/racks in the Single/Double. That may be worth a try in the showroom/sales floor @ Lowe's or HD. Then you could have the best of both worlds! You would have to order the roll outs separately, but it may be worth it.

Hope this helps!
