OUR 2nd GE MICROWAVE IN 20 YEARS JOINS THE FAMILY!

Papa F 11/9/2020

We have lived in our home for 43 years and are just now replacing our 1st GE Microwave with the upgraded model of our original one because we liked it so much. We also found it to be very affordable. It fit the same cabinet as #1 and at 81 yrs old I was able to install it myself. A photo of the installed white GE Microwave is added below! Papa & Mimi F.

Steve Z 11/6/2020

The first one I got, I unpacked, pugged it in, place a cup water, selected a minute, the fan started rattling and died.. I took it back to Lowe's, they did not have a replacement and directed me to a store in Oregon, I picked a replacement there and so far it is working!

We have a built in microwave over our oven. I am short and worry about dealing with hot dishes over my head. This microwave is the perfect size to sit on our countertop for me to use. Much easier to use than the built in.

Disappointed in this purchase

Cindy 10/29/2020

I own a GE oven and LOVE it. So when I needed a microwave I purchased this GE model. I use the microwave for re-heating or for cooking frozen vegetables or frozen meals (like lean cuisine), I do not roast or bake or defrost so this model had more features than I would need but it was a GE so I purchased it. I am very disappointed in this unit. I don't believe it is working as it should be. I have had different experiences with it. 3 or 4 times now, while warming food (no more than 2 minutes on the timer) it just shut down. Clock went blank and when opened the door, no interior light was on. It was not the circuit breaker either. I unplugged and replugged it in but nothing. About 15 minutes later, the microwave was beeping and the clock re-illuminated and the interior light was working. 1 of the times this happened it took almost an hour before it came back on. Another issue I find with this unit is the amount of steam that is generated within the unit when re-heating my coffee or cooking frozen veggies or meals. I set the timer for 2 mins to stir the veggies but when opened the door the steam was intense. I tried the sensor cooking feature to re-heat a plate of food but the unit ran far longer than needed too. The food was not edible. I just use the timer instead. I wish the clock / timer was brighter--very dull, hard to see. What I like about the unit is the turntable, the interior size which fits a larger plate or several smaller plates for re-heating and it came in white to match my other appliances.

Happy with performance, cooks fast, easy to use. Not particularly senior friendly. Print on keypads is small. Buttons are smaller and more difficult to push than our old Kenmore.

Ginger 10/27/2020

I'm very satisfied so far with this microwave. It's very roomy and can accept a large casserole dish. It cooks evenly and has a bright enough light to see what's cooking inside. I would recommend this oven to my friends.

Meets Our Needs

WandaCStars 10/22/2020

Wanted a micro similar to the old one and this one seemed best suited though not made by the same company. Price was very reasonable. If I were to ask for changes, they would be a brighter light and a larger panel with buttons or at least larger spaces which would be easier to press, including that for the door.. Otherwise, we're satisfied--

Unfortunately, our particular oven worked well about 1 week, then began to refuse to respond to settings, then finally quit everything. I returned it to the dealer. It was almost identical to the one we had for 6 years.

Good microwave for the cost.

adm0013 10/19/2020

This microwave was a replacement for one that quit heating. It had to be a lower cost but similar features. It had the wattage, space inside and all the features we needed like turntable, quick start, sensor cook, etc. The reminder beep is also much less annoying than the other unit. The only complaints are the LED display is a bit dim and is hard to see even at night and the power level button is a long way from the start button.

We bought5his microwave and the metal waspaper thin. I used it two times for six minutes on two different days and it got so hot on top you could not touch it. The glass in front also turned white. Ephesians took it back and got another GE Microwave a 2 cu. ft 1200 watt microwave and it is a better me oven. It cost more but so far has been worth it.
