CNET First Look
GE Profile Built-In Double Convection Wall Oven PT9550SFSSYou can preheat this sleek double oven using the GE Brillion app
Hi. I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET and this is a first take of the GE Profile Double Convection Wall Oven PT9550SFSS. This oven sells for $3,699 and it features two 5 cubic foot capacity ovens. A great feature about this oven is that it has both traditional and convection heating options. This Convection is a little bit unique though. It uses true European Convection with direct air. Direct air is actually a fan from the top of each oven that covers the food and cooks it more evenly and efficiently. Another thing we love is the racks that screw into either side of both ovens. The racks just screw in and they have 6 different heights so you can adjust it accordingly. And another thing we love is that the bottom heat element is hidden so that you can clean it easily. Now, we haven't tested this yet but this oven also comes with a steam clean feature that heats at a lower temperature and targets smaller spills. Another cool feature of this oven is this red LED panel you see here. When it's pulsing, it means the oven is preheating. Now, it only works for the top oven but it's still kinda cool. And when you're cooking your food, the LED accesses status bar, letting you know how much time is left on your cooking. And when the bar is fully lit, it means that your food is done. GE offers select appliances that connect to the GE Brillion app on your iPhone or Android. This oven happens to be compatible with that. The setup is really easy and this app actually accesses remote control. So, you can be sitting on your couch, researching recipe and you can preheat your oven while you're sitting down. Now, this oven model comes in either stainless steel or black, but it's a pretty standard-looking oven. The real standout feature is gonna be that red LED light. And if you don't like that, you can turn it off in the settings. This has been a first take of the GE Profile Double Convection Oven but stay tune. We'll have a full review for you soon. For CNET.com, I'm Megan Wollerton. Thanks for watching.
