[KBIS 2008 Review]
This exclusive wall oven is going to make some noise and some predict, it will make a culinary history. GE has introduced the industry first single/double oven that can cook two dishes at two temperatures at the same time. The GE Profile 30-inch wall oven makes juggling multiple dishes a breeze. The 30″ oven fits two ovens into the space of a single standard wall oven, providing room to evenly roast a 22-pound turkey in the 2.8 cu.ft. lower oven. Simultaneously, you can cook other dishes at a separate temperature in the 2.2 cu.ft. upper oven, so casseroles, trays of hors d’oeuvres, or breads can be served at their peak. The upper oven can easily hold two 10.5″ by 14.75″ casserole dishes. The total capacity of 5.0 cu.ft. makes this wall oven the largest of its kind. GE invented Advantium and Trivection speedcook technology, and equips this oven with some advanced cooking technology as well. The lower oven features the PreciseAir convection system for restaurant-quality results. GE exclusive reversing-fan technology allows optimal heat circulation and temperature accuracy to ensure deliciously browned, evenly baked foods. The compact convection system leaves ample space for cookie sheets, roasting pans and large bakeware. In addition, a slow cook mode offers four settings for pork, poultry, beef, and stew, so each meat is prepared under ideal conditions with no separate slow cooker required. In the upper oven, the GE pizza mode prepares fresh or frozen pizzas to the desired level of crispness. Fresh vegetables and other side dishes can be prepared while the main dish bakes with no need to compromise on cooking temperatures. Or you can cook another main dish. As beautiful as it is powerful, the single/double wall oven has stainless steel doors, handles and trims, with glass touch controls hidden inside the upper oven door for a sleek, modern appearance. Such unique control placement frees up valuable space often occupied by a standard control panel, so that two usable ovens are possible in the space of a single 30-inch wall oven. The self-cleaning oven racks can remain in the oven during the self-clean cycle, making cleaning a breeze as well. The GE 30-inch single/double oven will be available October 2008 for a suggested retail price of $2,800.
