Following up on yesterday’s post on GE Advantium ovens, I wanted to touch upon another GE cooking technology with a funky name that they probably paid a branding firm a nice lump sum to conjure. Welcome to the world of GE Trivection technology!
What is Trivection? It’s a cooking technology that uses a combination of three heating methods: thermal, convection and microwave that cooks food up to 5x faster than a normal oven (the Advantium can cook up to 8x faster
How Does Trivection Work?
1. There are two 2500 watt bake and broil elements that provide heat from above and below the oven cavity.
2. Another dual loop 2500 watt element is in the back of the oven in front of the convection fan.
3. The fan reverses direction of air flow which contributes to optimal air flow and heat direction…RESULT = Faster Roasting Speeds, more even heating
Questions About GE Monogram Trivection Ovens
Q. How many ovens offer Trivection technology?
A. 2. A single and double, both are 30″
Q. Does GE offer a Trivection in a 27″ size?
A. No, see above. 30″ only!
Q. Can I get a Trivection oven with a thick pro handle?
A. No can do. Only available with thinner Euro handle and LCD touchscreen.
Q. Do the Trivection ovens offer Sabbath mode?
Q. Can I install a single Trivection oven under a counter?
Q. Can I install a single Trivection oven under a cooktop?
Q. Does the double oven offer Trivection in both ovens?
A. No, only in the upper oven. The lower oven is a convection/conventional oven.
So how would you decide between a Trivection or Advantium oven?
First of all, I haven’t seen many customers purchase an Advantium along with a Trivection model as they are somewhat redundant. Typically you’ll see a customer purchase an Advantium oven and place it atop a single Monogram convection oven (non-Trivection). The second oven will carry the weight of larger loads like the Thanksgiving turkey and the Advantium will handle everything from simple microwave chores to more involved cooking processes, so long as the dish can fit in the smaller sized Advantium oven.
Trivection ovens seem to stand on their own. I’ll see customers purchase a double Trivection and then team that with a microwave like a ze2160sf or zem200sf for normal, smaller microwave functions. I’ve also seen a handful of folks who will rock the single Trivection and then lay down the cash to team it with the Advantium, but that’s more of a rarity.
