We purchased the double oven for the simple reason of having two ovens. We opted for convection on top because we wanted to try it - I do see a difference in the roasting of meats and baking -- the microwave convection cannot be compared to the wall unit at all - however, in its defense I have not used the microwave convection as much as the wall unit. My microwave is also a regular oven too so that makes three ovens -- I cook/bake a lot and believe it or not, all THREE come in quite handy!

HI, I have a regular oven and a microwave/convection oven. The microwave/convection oven is 20 years old. Mostly I use it for microwaving and my other favorite thing is to dehydrate things in it. I make jerky, dehydrate tomatoes, dehydrated fruits. I use to to warm coffee and warm up leftovers and to thaw frozen meals and meat at say 30% power.
I like cooking in a traditional method, like roasting and baking, but the convection oven offers me more alternatives, so I like having both.
I wouldn't want to give up either method. That is just me.

I may be confused. Are we talking about 3 types of ovens? 1 being a regular thermal oven, 2 being a thermal/convection oven and finally a convection-microwave oven? If so, the original discussion involved having a regular thermal oven and a convection oven.
Micowave ovens, whether normal or convection are an entirely different topic, as their use and results are very different than thermal heat.

My microwave is an actual oven too - you can set the temperature you want, wait for it to preheat and use it just like a regular oven. Of course, it is also a microwave too.

Yes, and if I had a chance to design a kitchen or buy a top and bottom oven, I'd get a convection/microwave top with a normal oven below. I'd do it because it would do all the things I want done. Counter space is always at a premium and this would save space while allowing for more functionality.
