30" Over The Range Convection Microwave Hood
We have specified this microwave/convection oven with and without the fan for our client's homes. It is great on space and has a nice streamlined look. The microwave has smart features that make preparation much easier.
The convection oven takes a bit longer than most to heat up but once at temperature is an excellent additional source for smaller items. Cookies are great cooked with the convection option on the round sheets (sold by Dacor).
The unit with the fan really should be mounted higher than practical to allow for enough clearance at the cook top. If mounted at a reasonable height for microwave/oven usage, it does vertically crowd the cook top area. For this reason I would recommend the unit without a fan and installation in a wall cabinet rather than over the cook top.
The fan is not fabulous. If you have other sources of ventilation or are using the model without the fan, I'd this is one of the best. If not, the fan is a bit weak as far as removing odors and smoke.

This is a great microwave and convection oven. I recently used the convection oven for making appetizers for two and it worked great!
It sounds strong it will last a very long time. I love the professional look, very stealth and clean!
