Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Rusty and Judy 7/29/2020

The second microwave oven we had was a GE countertop model and it was the best. After many years of service, we replaced it with another brand, which was fine since we could not find a GE replacement. The oven finally died and what did we find...a GE replacement. Welcome home GE.

when using the reheat option and if you stop it before completion to check the item heating, it forces you to start over. You cant continue what was started so you never know how much time was spent. The buttons on the panel are indented over time. :-( other wise great.

GE Microwave

Keith2 7/23/2020

This microwave works perfectly. I does everything I have wanted it to do. I do wish the buttons were a little larger to fit my fat fingers better, and I wish it wouldn't slide around on the counter as easily, but these are petty complaints. This is as nice a microwave as I have ever had.

So Disappointing

SCSue 7/21/2020

From day 1, the only way the oven worked was to press on the top. We called GE and the rep said if we removed it from the built-in cabinet it was in it would work fine. Talk about useless! We've been really happy with GE appliances in the past so we were extremely disappointed this time.

EJOYL 7/14/2020

I purchased this unit in the stainless finish, and it's very attractive. However, I hate that the light inside the unit is EXTREMELY dim, both when you open the door and when the unit is running. Also, it's very difficult to read the words on the keypad. The words are printed in white against a black background, but the print is very dull and you need to get up very close read the words. I did cook a potato using the potato button, and it came out cooked to perfection...just as though I had baked it in a regular oven. That's most important, so I'm keeping this unit.

I love this microwave! It's big enough to get a whole chicken in with room to turn and the button options help my 6 year old, he can cook corn dogs and chicken nuggets. It's nice and sleek, I love the no handle so I don't have to clean it at the joints. The surfaces are easy to clean. It heats my coffee in a regular size mug perfectly! For a microwave, it is quiet.

good quality.

jacpo 7/9/2020

Gets food hot quick. But can be a little confusing at first, for example if you put food in the microwave and come back a little while latter and try starting it, you may get a message on the screen that reads "FOOD" and does not start. just open the door and close it again before starting. some kind of sensor that resets after a given time will prevent starting.

fogging problem

smitty42 7/9/2020

The microwave was purchased because it would fit my cabinet opening without any changes. The 3 star rating was because of several items. An electrical plug that fits close to the wall would have been a plus feature. The most annoying problem is the door fogs up and the item in the microwave cannot be observed. Not only does the inside of the door fog up but the area between the outside and inside of the door fogs up. Wiping down the inside of the door using a paper towel with a drop of hand soap helps but the area between the two glass panels is not accessible.

Compuguy2142 7/8/2020

Works well, good interior space and interior light. Looks good. More powerful than our previous unit so we do need to re-adjust the cook times to less seconds for the same output. Using the same time will be too much.

This replaces a W.P. microwave that didn't last six months. got off to a rocky start, the first one GE set was damaged from the factory, but they made it good in just a few days. Even during the pandemic. MW is quiet, has all the balls and whistles that we will ever use. Great for popcorn or preparing dinner. We would recommend this product to anyone who asks.

AZ shopper 7/2/2020

Looks good but a few items I would have wanted on it. Don't like that the timer will not shut off without hitting the timer button. Or that it has the option to program it to. Also don't care for having to hit the cook time before entering a time other than minute intervals. Also dimensions did not account for the bulge in the back of the unit. That added about 4 more inches to the unit.
