GH GOOD DEAL. Good points:  Good results for reheating, grilling, convection and combination cooking. The roast chicken was well cooked with a golden, evenly browned skin using the combined microwave and convection setting. Good grilling results - toast was crisp and evenly browned.   Simple to programme.

Drawbacks: Only one combination function. Poor results using weight defrost setting - chicken drumsticks began cooking in some areas. Slow at grilling sausages because the single wire rack isn’t high enough. Fairy cakes were unevenly risen. Difficult to see into cavity to check progress of cooking. Stainless steel fascia fingermarks badly.
