Default Over range microwave

My microwave finally bit the shit after nearly 7 years. Any benefit going convection in a microwave? I'm thinking I'll just replace the $300 unit that was already there.

I've been reading about this too and asking around. I think there is an advantage to a convection microwave.

1. If I understand it correctly - it's like another little oven. So, even if you have 2 - you can have another to keep things warm or whatever.

2. It can be used as a microwave.

3. For little things (muffins...etc), it's less power...etc and still browns, cooks a little faster.

4. They are not THAT much more expensive than an over priced microwave.

I have to buy a microwave in about a month, and I'm probably going convection unless I learn something otherwise. Just a little more versatile and multipurpose than a standard microwave.

There is absolutely great benefit in a convection microwave. More so for those that use the microwave a lot. Air movement is a good thing, and will help with crispness. As ceyko said, browning, faster cook times, etc.

I wouldn't spend the money on one personally, but I also only use my microwave for popcorn. Everything else gets reheated in the oven. I really despise microwaves.

We use ours for canned soups and to reheat crap when I get the drunk munchies... That's actually why I started this thread, I was drunk and couldn't microwave a bowl of shit that I had thrown together. lol

LOL, started messing with it today, sober. Went and looked at the breaker, sure enough it was flipped. No need to buy a new microwave. Internet high five continuing into facepalm.

I've had a GE Spacemaker over my range for 10 years and it works fine. I do not have the external venting connected and I do not even use the internal vent. It is not noisy. If you need some fresh info on over the range microwave, check out this resource please https://www.theolive.com/reviews/bes...ge-microwaves/

I know it's old, but this is the kind you really should get to replace your old broke ass shit.
