    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.

    Fussy Old Man 7/12/2022

    Just put in (07/22). Let's see how it holds up. It's GE so should be just fine. Works nicely. Nice capacity inside which just holds a 12" square dinner plate. Input buttons crisply activate with a solid feel. Appears to be a solid unit.

    RIP After One Year

    sdsradl 7/8/2022

    My senior adult parents needed a new microwave. They chose GE for a reputation of quality and after years of owning long lasting GE products. Unfortunately, the microwave did not last 14 months. The process was a bit muddled for them to navigate, so here I am to learn that repair and not replacement is the policy. While we had the microwave, it worked great and fast! But alas, it was all short-lived.

    New Microwave

    1dbs 6/19/2022

    This microwave is a little smaller than the one we replaced. Seems to run okay. My only suggestion would be to put a brighter bulb inside. You can barely see anything when you open the door and once you close it and start cooking you can't see the food because the light is so low.

    It works

    Bob3141 6/10/2022

    It's a microwave. It heats food. It makes funny noises when the food being heated isn't big enough. Timer and clock work. The only real complaint is the plastic over the display didn't come off easily and the manual never covers the odd cases you want... like all the others out there.

    I Am Really Happy With My GE Purchase

    Jeffrey7539 6/8/2022

    We are very happy with the microwave oven we purchased recently from GE. It is easy to operate and performs as advertised. We also thought that we got great value for the money we spent on it. We purchased it online and set it up for in-store pickup. Since it was in stock we were able to pick it up the same day. this was another great selling point.

    Repeat GE Customer

    MJs 1150 Watt Microwave 6/1/2022

    This afternoon, my wife cried for HELP! Our microwave Oven had died after nearly 7 years of use. We immediately went to the store to purchase another GE Microwave. Unfortunately, our old model was no longer being offered, so we had to step up to the larger 1150 Watt version. Although this size is probably too powerful for our needs, we are hopeful that it will p[rovide another 7 years of wonderful microwave use.

    I love it and had a black previous GE microwave. I believe the white one I chose this time around is less noticeable than my fingerprints and dirt! I am a senior citizen and would have been nice to have large print of all the features. My son found it online and printed it off for me. I even purchased the extended warranty just incase.

    This product is different than the one I had before. What a difference 18 years can make! I like the smooth interior, the odd colored light, and the different design on the rotating table. Now that I am old, I will get to depend on the reminders: FOOD, and TURN. I wish it had come with an owner's manual in the box.

    Hard to press buttons

    Patsy P 4/14/2022

    Bought this microwave because it was the only white available in my area. Was larger than I wanted. It seems to work fine but I have to REALLY press hard on the buttons which ends up moving the whole unit. I do like the "30 second" button but find the other buttons (start, stop, etc.) hard to use. It would get a higher rating if it wasn't so hard to use. I had a GE microwave many years ago but the interior paint kept peeling off so I'll be closely watching on this new one.

    Just what I was looking for

    Had a Sharp and went to replace it. The one I got was too big. So I found this and it was just what the Dr. ordered

    We only had it a short time now but so far, we like it, no problems. Would have liked a different color but Lowe's only had white and all out other appliance in our kitchen is beige and black, but we needed one right aways, ours died.

    I can use the microwave and timer at the same time. Doesn't vent on the top.

    Study not then it got noisy

    Read the Reviews 3/31/2022

    I love the sturdiness of this microwave; nothing feels cheap about it. It works well, but a few months in, it started making wobbling noises from underneath the turntable; the turntable stayed steady but something inside/under must have been off. Everything was seated properly inside the microwave, but it made intermittent noises and eventually a screeching sound. It's a product I want to keep, but once it started making a screaming noise, I had it replaced under warranty. Hopefully the replacement will do better. Overall, I love the quality of the microwave-the housing, the heavy electrical cord, the feel of the push button to open the door. It cleans up easily and is an attractive microwave.

    Great Microwave

    RevBrdRvs1253 3/31/2022

    We wanted a microwave over 1000 watts and did a timed cook with a single touch (1-6 minutes and an added 30-second feature). We got this and much more.
