We (my husband) bought the Advantium 120 during a private sale at our appliance store for ~$700

We recently purchased the GE Advantium - it was under $1000 - we love it. It also came with a pretty good size full color cookbook too. I have to admit I have only "cooked" in it once but I use the speed cook alot - very easy, everything is already programmed in.

Michele, have you made baked potatoes yet? I really love how they come out.

Has anyone tried to make a roast beef in it yet? I couldn't find a recipe for it.

No, I believe that you're referring to the Black & Decker Infrawave. The Advantium I have is a 220v microwave/speed oven.

And it cooks with a light bulb, right?

Hello - I have a Sears Kenmore Elite w/Advantium 120 Technology speedcook microhood that cost about $795 (on sale from $972). I purchase it around 2003. I like it very much but I hardly use the speedcook for many things because of the recipe conversion factor. What surprises me is that Kenmore no longer offers this model for sale. Does anyone else out there have one? Also is there some type of cookbook/formula for converting recipes to speedcook measures? Appreciate any informatoin that can be offered.

The GE Advantium comes with a cookbook that explains how to do the conversion on your own recipes.

You might check out their site and see if you can purchase one of their books.
