    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.

    installation was easy

    Rick Nickname 4/12/2022

    installation was easy....but would have been really nice if I could have used the existing mounting bracket and holes. New mounting bracket and holes in the cabinet to mount the microwave to were required.

    Jim104 1/19/2022

    I would give this 5 stars if the operations were better thought out. Express should have a couple of "seconds" times (30, 15 seconds). Takes more button pushes than our previous GE unit.

    Just died after 15 months

    Spooner65 12/20/2021

    From day one this microwave made a slight clicking noise & loud rumble noise when I would start it. Had it checked out after a few months but technician said nothing wrong. Then, just a few days ago hit 'Start" and it just clicked off. No light, no fan, nothing. Technician will be out to check it out but this is very disappointing at this time of year, especially. And the microwave is just over the one year warranty, that is a real dissatisfier.

    Easy to use

    beaner80 9/13/2021

    Although it is easy to use, there are many options for cooking by weight and time, express cooking or selecting time and power options. I don't cook full meals in a microwave so I am happy to be able to reheat leftovers, heat liquids and defrost. This microwave has all the features I was looking for including an option to turn off the turntable to fit a large cooking vessel. Very similiar to the model I had for 26 years with a few more features and I expect I will have to be careful cleaning the outside so I don't scratch it as lots of black plastic that shows scratches, the only default I can find.

    JohMon 7/8/2021

    We bought this unit to replace another GE Microwave which had the handle break off. The replacement handle and its mounting hardware costs almost as much as this new unit. The new unit plastic overlay is already de-laminating over the the cancel/off button. Otherwise, it does a yeoman job

    Better than my last one

    Freddy222 1/7/2021

    I bought this as a replacement for the one that came original with my home when I built it. The other one got so loud I couldn't stand it anymore. This one is quieter (for now) and it heats better than the old ones. The exhaust fan is also much quieter. If I had the money I would have bought a better model but this one is good for now.

    2nd GE Microwave

    Carol Lynn S 11/16/2020

    When my last microwave died,( it was over 10 years old) and it was a GE, I decided to stay with a good product. My prior microwave had a shelf... this one does not. But to be honest, I rarely used the shelf. The only thing I miss is the timer setting for the surface light. I used it as a nite lite ....on at dusk off at dawn. This new unit doesn't give me the option.

    Sleek & Smooth

    Well, GE did away with the oven rack but kept the Sleek and smooth look of this model. Very easy to install.

    We needed to upgrade our 21 year old microwave. We're very happy with this unit so far.

    So far, so good.

    redponygirl 9/21/2020

    I've only used the microwave for about a month, so far so good. It does seem to heat things quicker than with the last microwave I had, which was a Samsung. The Samsung only lasted about 6 years. I know I'll not buy another one of those. The GE brand came recommended to me by Flick Brothers Electric in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. The only thing that I'm not happy with is the instruction manual which is very limited, therefore I feel that I'm not using the microwave to the best of its ability

    Buttons seem hard to press

    Ayalad 9/15/2020

    Buttons seem hard to press and I feel like I'm going to leave an indention after several years. I'm hoping that doesn't wear out. Regardless, the power of the microwave is great. doesn't take much to heat up - 30 sec seems perfect for reheat

    They do not make microwave ovens like they used to

    MaryC 9/10/2020

    The door loud when opening and closing. If you open the microwave before the time ends, the light on the microwave continues to blink and give notice, it is so annoying, never ending. Cannot read the buttons, too dark. Another annoying feature, you have to press 3 different buttons to turn it on. Another annoying thing is the clock light is too bright. You can't read the numbers on the microwave, but the clock is too bright. I am rating it a 3 because I think they are all the same. The microwave works fine, like any other microwave, but the technology gets more and more annoying.

    I like the timer feature since my previous microwave didn't have that. Also beeps to remind you if you don't take your item out when it is done
