We just picked up a new-to-us Class A and it has a GE Advantium oven. I was able to download the users manual from GE but it doesn't answer the biggest question I have. Is there a way to turn the turntable off so I can cook using my 9x13 casserole dish? I have looked at all the buttons and skimmed the manual and can't find anything. Any help is appreciated.

We did have the "big" Advantium in our sticks & bricks and there was no way to turn off the turntable.

ditto no way to turn off. I bought round and square glass cookware to use instead of the larger 13x9 pans.

We had that problem also, what we did was to purchase a wire grate with legs, thats the best way I know to put it, but we found it at a Kitchen store in an Outlet Mall, searched for a while before finding the right size, now we just set that over top of the turn Knob, take out the pan and roller, and it works just fine, you may have to reverse your dish part way through cooking as the burner is towards the back, we have cook quiet a few dishes that way.

What a pain! I guess GE doesn't think we cook large quantities of food in these things! I can't imagine cooking a casserole for a potluck in two separate pans. Guess I will do the same thing mytime is doing.

I sent an email to GE asking this question and when they respond I will certainly let them know what a dumb thing this was.

Can you take the turntable mechanism out of the microwave? I think that's what I did to use my oblong pans.

You can take the turntable out, but the rotating mechanism is still there, getting in the way of the oblong pan sitting correctly. Better to put a rack over the turning mechanism.

Otherwise, we're reasonably happy with our Advantium, which was in the house when we bought it.

Thanks. Looks like I am off to the outlet centers kitchen store to see what I can find. I am going to have to try something out in, like store bought cookie dough, to get a feel for the thing. Treasa

As I said in my other Post, I think you will be happy with the wire Grate, I found on that has the legs about 3/4" to 1" tall, the sides of the wire was bent to form the Legs, I did purchase two before I found the One that I really like, You will be better off with this type of arrangement because it keeps your dish high enough from the burner element that it cooks better, Just reverse the dish at about 1/2 time so that it cooks both sides and does not burn as the element is towards the back, you can see the burner when the dish is out.
We all got tired of removing the glass dish and putting the metal pan back and forth, we have what they call a Pizza Pan, same size as the Glass and it has small holes in the pan to cook items better, of course you can not cook something that drips unless you put it in a container, but we leave the pizza pan in the Oven all the time Now even when using the Microwave and have not had a problem in over 2yrs., just make sure that the metal pan does not touch the side of the oven when using the Microwave, it will cause sparks., not good.

Does your shelf have little rubber feet on it or is the entire side of the shelf bent down to form the "legs"? I have some kitchen cabinet shelfs that are taller than 1" that might work until I find something better.
