This 30-inch GE Profile PT956WMWW double wall oven has a regular thermal oven on the bottom and a similar-sized convection oven on top. The convection oven includes a recipe converter, which recalculates standard baking and roasting times for convection cooking. This wall oven has a modern appearance, reviewers say, but not the "industrial" look favored by some (you can get it in stainless steel for about $450 more). GE wall ovens perform well in testing and in one customer reliability survey. If you don't need a double wall oven, the Kenmore Elite 48043 is the top-rated wall oven overall. This model only includes a single oven, but it has a convection feature.
There are currently no professional reviews for this model, but it gets some user ratings. Since reviews of individual wall ovens are difficult to come by, we consulted J.D. Power's latest brand survey, as well as an article and an owner survey by ConsumerReports.org. Sears.com and Lowes.com visitors rate some GE Profile wall ovens.
The editors of ConsumerReports.org evaluate 14 wall ovens in a wide range of prices, and publish the results of a reader survey regarding brand reliability. GE wall ovens are rated and included in the reliability chart.

Buzzillions.com collects user reviews from a number of review sites. There aren't any reviews for the GE Profile PT956WMWW here, but there are several for GE wall ovens, including one for the 27-inch version of this model, the PK956WMWW. According to the owner, the oven is easy to use, but the corners can chip on impact.
