About the new GE Profile™ wall ovens

GE’s new Profile wall ovens feature the latest cooking technology— True European Convection with Direct Air.** New vents on the top of the oven cavity—an industry first in full-size ovens—focus air directly on the food, providing significantly increased air flow and great cooking performance.

Because great food shouldn’t come with a sacrifice of time or convenience, an iPhone® and Android™ app lets consumers remotely control the Brillion™-enabled ovens with Wi-Fi access.***

They can preheat, set the timer, change the temperature or cooking function, and check cooking status while managing other household activities. The current feature allows control via mobile app from within the home or yard, and a remote option will be available as an upgrade at a later date.

The wall ovens will fit in 75 percent of existing wall oven cutouts already in consumers’ homes, making them ideal for remodeling.****

The wall ovens retail for an MSRP of $999 – $3,599.***** Models are available in black, white and stainless finishes. GE models are available in single- and double-oven configurations in both 30 and 27 inches.
