The product is notable mainly for being prominently featured in the pilot of the American situation comedy 30 Rock, where the character of Jack Donaghy (played by Alec Baldwin) describes the product, claiming to have invented it himself and pegging it as his "greatest triumph" after years and years of market research. Jack Donaghy's description of the product is taken near verbatim from GE’s website, although he inaccurately states the product uses "three kinds of heat," whereas heat is actually one of three kinds of energy the product uses.

[3] Allison Eckelkamp, a spokesperson for GE, confirms this and says that GE chose to run ads for the oven during the commercial break to make sure viewers knew it was a real product.[4] Product placement(PPL) is a promotional tactic used by marketers in which a real commercial product is used in fictional media, and the presence of the product is a result of an economic exchange. ...
