We camp mostly in the warmer months...both A/C's screaming...DW used the oven once in our previous 5er...nevermore cried the Raven! You can pretty much do anything with a convection microwave...besides I enjoy grillin outside whenever I can...

No, to my knowledge all the GE Profile Advantium and micro/convection ovens are 30". Some of us were just fortunate enough to have the space to install them.

Something to think about...
You can store stuff in the oven, but you can't cook in a cabinet.
We opted for the oven and have not been sorry.

If you are not plugged in you can't use the c/m with a propane oven you are ok , we don't like to have to run the generator to use the convection microwave. We like to cook and miss a propane oven having both would be the ideal situation for us. Just our opinion.

Nope, ours is the standard home 110/120 volt unit, they also make a 220/240 volt unit but it's the same outside dimensions, just more powerful.

But can you throw a 16" extra cheese, pepperoni and mushroom pie in that bad boy? Now that's the true test of a C/M.

Does that portable induction cooktop use a lot of power? I've seen those before. I know several people have them in their homes, and love them, but don't know about power consumption.

About the only thing we use our oven at home for on a regular basis is either biscuits or cornbread. Will the convention/microwave take care of these two items?

Yeah, it's an oven, it's an electric oven, it is considered by many to be preferable for baking as the temp is more consistent , AND you don't have to stoop!

Microwave / Convection in my motor home my wife does not miss having an oven. She like the M / C so well in the motor home she had me put one in our house. She does not use the oven often.
