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.

Almost fine

Raykay22 5/13/2021

Everything seems to work well, except it's almost impossible to read the numbers on the clock/time readout. Way too dim. Do you have a fix for this, GE? My old GE didn't have this problem.

Does what it's supposed to do

chiefhanko 5/13/2021

Works fine. Convenient timing options--especially the express cook options. Black lettering on white background is easy to see. Just wish the digital time display was larger and brighter for my old eyes. Door opening "button" is not as convenient as former microwave for person with arthritis.

BobC63 5/12/2021

This is the second GE microwave that I have owned. The first one, an earlier version of the same model, lasted nine years and was fantastic; absolutely no complaints. The robust functionality and GE quality that you receive at the price point is a perfect balance. With the limited space that I have in my 250+ year old kitchen, the microwave's footprint is unobtrusive. Like the "mug," I am happy with my purchase! Go Team GE!

Handyman 409 5/11/2021

I have owned GE microwaves for more than 30 years. This is my second one. They are of excellent quality and workmanship. This product is easy to use and is relatively quiet and fast. THE BOSS (THE WIFE) IS VERY PLEASED. If I ever have to purchase another microwave in my lifetime it will be a GE.

SWFL1 5/9/2021

When we first got it, it made lots of noise when starting and running. We then tried to center everything perfectly on the turntable, and now it runs with minimal noise right at the start and right at the end only.

IndyEd 5/6/2021

This one has taken some getting used to. I take 30 - 45 seconds off for every 5 minutes or it burns. The open/close is loud and clunky, not the best for a midnight snack when my wife is sleeping.

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.
