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.

The power level feature coupled with the 1600 watt output lets one use your oven almost as a full oven.

Arch41 4/24/2021

We bought this microwave to replace a 13 year old GE that was dying. The old unit was larger, but it had served us well for quite a while. We really like this replacement. The size is much better for us than the old unit and it works great. The features are the same as our old unit so it was easy to get used to using it. We have always had great experiences with GE products.

Good Microwave for Price

BradDeb 4/23/2021

We have just started using the microwave, but it is more intuitive to use than comparable competitors. It also seems to give the most cubic inches in the mid-size microwave class. We are replacing a 20+ year old Kenmore Elite so I hope we get as good longevity. Will keep you posted.

Good microwave

JJGG 4/11/2021

We've only had this microwave 1-2 months--so far, so good. We purchased this model because it is almost identical to a model we had previously for at least 10 years, and really liked. I appreciate the shape of the interior; a 7"x11" dish fits. Few of the microwaves we looked at had this shape; this is a primary reason we chose this model. I also like that it comes in white. The only feature that I don't like is that I have to press the surface very firmly in order to give commands.

Angie 8351993 4/4/2021

I am hoping we got a bad one as we experienced several power failures on ours when it had to cook for 6- 8 minutes. Let out a lot of steam too at that point so wondering if we had a malfunctioning one. Otherwise we liked the features.

Fran4600 4/2/2021

No way to disengage annoying beeper, door wont stay open but will put something under right side to correct, very short cord so may have to lower shelf on cart so it is not as taunt, but that is going to make the microwave too low. Dont have enough counter space to put it on.

Great price, excellent microwave

Read1 3/28/2021

This is my second microwave within 3 months. When using the first microwave for first time, steam and fog got in between glass panels on door but kept it bc returning it would have been major hassle (it was a gift, receipt issues, could not return to a store bc it was over 30 days from purchase date) . It worked great but then 3 months later it completely died. Out of the blue. THEN I had to go through longggg process of getting a replacement. I decided to go with GE again. Loved the size, features and it fit perfectly AND the price was excellent compared to other large counter top microwaves. Still waiting for reimbursement check from GE (3 weeks now). Snail mail everything. But still love this microwave and would recommend GE forever. Customer service is over the top and they stand by their products. I've been a homeowner with GE appliances for over 40 years. you can't go wrong.

Great microwave- early door latch failure

Fm147micro 3/24/2021

I has to replace this microwave after 19 months in service because the door latch was defective-- and the turntable, fan, and light continued to operate with the door open. I did like the features and size on this product- just wish the door latch had continued to function as well as the rest of the product.

Doug8791 3/20/2021

Like others have said it worked great if you don't try to heat anything longer than 4 minutes. Just bought it and was heating something for 5 minutes and with 20 seconds to go it just totally shuts off. unplug it and plug it back in nada. About 10 minutes late plug it back in and it will work again. Seems really quiet like the fan isn't working. Have had it home all of 4 hours. Taking it back tomorrow and will not be buying another GE microwave...probably ever.
