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 and 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.

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

This is our second GE microwave, the first one took good care of us for 15 years. I really enjoy the easy minute buttons, the 30 second add on button and the weight of this microwave. It seems very durable and we hope to put it to the test for the next 15 years.

MUCH BETTER THAN THE LAST ONE

Submitted by KYTNLADY101 - 1/21/2021

We had a Frigidare for about 9 1/2 years and we liked it, but it was a little complicaated/not very east, to operate. We puirchased our new GE microwave, at the same CF, about a month ago and we love it! It is so easy to operate and cooks so much better than the old one. We would definitely look into other GE apliances as needed.

Mr Picky Finally Happy!

Submitted by tryridem - 1/19/2021

I love this new Microwave Oven. It's big, but not too big, it's beautiful, it's not too loud, but what is most important to me is usage feature with buttons. This microwave allows you to change power level WHILE the microwave is running. Vital must have feature for me! Also love the one push button to turn on if you press 1 thru 6 or Add 30 Seconds button. I know I'm picky-picky, but just know that this is the best microwave to buy as far as I'm concerned. Yes, I'm aware btw that there is a sticker over the keypad that can be removed, but I prefer to keep it on for now and keep underneath "new" as long as possible. This GE microwave replaces my old GE microwave of 20+ years that I didn't feel was worth trying to repair. I'm a loyal GE microwave customer.

Submitted by Glenn805 - 1/14/2021

I bought this to replace a 15 year-old microwave that was only 800watts and very compact, actually, a little too compact. This new G.E. is not to big or too small and fits my counter perfectly. I especially like the sensor cooking for reheating, as that is primarily what I use a microwave oven for. The sensor cooking works very efficiently and heats very evenly.

Submitted by Chio1234567 - 1/13/2021

The microwave is performing well. I like the one touch 30 second start. I haven't used any of the advanced features yet. It seems to do a good job of hearing items evenly. We didn't realize that most of the microwave is black rather than the silver on the front, but it happens to match well with our other appliances in that regard.

We purchased this product and the 'feet' snapped off when we placed it on the shelf. When we placed a cup of water on the turntable to see how fast it would heat up the turn table started making (and continues to make) 'growling' noises. NOT happy about either of those issues, but the unit seems to work.

Disappointed in the features

Submitted by Soxx Guy - 1/13/2021

This unit replaced the exact same unit that we purchased 7 years ago that finally died. We had such good luck we stayed with the same model. First thing we noticed is the digital display is very dim with no way to brighten it up. Next thing we noticed is all the print on the keypad is much smaller than the previous one (we are in our 70's) and the ink is much lighter making it harder to see. Then one of the more annoying features is that when using the time, at the end the beeping doesn't stop. The old one beeped 3 or 4 times and stopped. As for the cooking part, it works fine. Just the little things that drive you crazy.

Submitted by Susy88 - 1/12/2021

We recently replaced a GE micro that was over 20 years old. I think our old one was a little higher power. Other than that this one seems to work good. We are getting condensation on the glass, which I've never seen before in a micro. When we looked this up, it seems to be normal. It hasn't seem to be affected by it. I would recommend GE products.

Does what I need

Submitted by aypb55 - 1/6/2021

I bought this microwave to replace a 20 year old GE microwave of the same size that was still working but sounded like the motor was starting to labor. I'm having to learn to shorten my cooking times & power level since this microwave has stronger wattage than my old one. I would have given it 5 stars if the alarm telling me it was finished weren't quite so loud. It borders on being annoying.

I actually wanted the next model up, but it would not fit, so I got this one. It is pretty simple. The only problem is that in order to press a button on the touch pad, I need to press with a knuckle, not with a fingertip. Otherwise it's ok for the reasons I need it.
