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.

It worked but we had to take it back.

Kycountry 10/16/2020

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.

Laurie Jane 10/13/2020

I recently downsized from their larger model. The food cooks anti slow as it would. My only problem is that it is noisier than the other model. They cover themselves in the directions by saying that it may make noises!

Remodel Upgrade

jobi1 10/8/2020

This microwave is an upgrade in both size and functions from our last one. A small feature that I really appreciate is the notification tone for the timer. It's loud enough to be heard from a different room but not annoyingly loud.

Every Feature I Need

TeddyB77 10/7/2020

I replaced a smaller but full-featured microwave. I chose this because it was one of the few white ones offered and it lit up when door opened. I use programmed features successfully. I like the layout of keypad. I hopes it lasts as long as 20+ year one it replaced.

A nice microwave

RobbyTheBiker 10/2/2020

This is a nice midsize microwave that replaces a ten year old microwave of the same color (white) and brand (GE). The old one finally died and as I looked around at options, I decided to go this microwave which was pretty much identical to the one it is replacing, but this new one is of a larger size, and this new size feels just right.

Jim J316 9/30/2020

The unit this microwave replaced was never any trouble until the morning it died. The new unit likes to lock itself and sometime responds to the unlock code and sometimes it does not. This does not make the wife happy and if she is not happy neither am I!

Awesome New Microwave

Weezielong 9/30/2020

I had had my microwave for probably 15 years. It was one of the larger models. So I was skeptical looking for a new one. This one is a little bit smaller than the one I originally had but the features on it make up for the size. Love the sensor on it that knows when your food is heated. Would definitely recommend this microwave.

sticky key pad

Hot Box 9/29/2020

The temperature seems a bit warm leaving the food a bit over cooked. And the key pad seems sticky. The zero button takes a bit of pushing to find it. Perhaps put an outline over the keys so you know exactly where to push. Otherwise it is different from the last product requiring a bit reading to figure out. May be just make these things universally functional.

Mellodog03 9/29/2020

My old microwave died and little did I know that finding a white microwave is a store could be such a challenge. I found this model at my local Lowe's and bought it. So far so good, this appears to be a well made item and is easy to use.

Love all but the indoor light!

skmich 9/28/2020

I have had a GE Microwave like this one since 2000. My other one lasted 20 years. When I bought this one, there are two differences. The light inside is very dim. I saw this reviewed before I bought it, but still wanted this microwave. It is annoying, and I don't know why they did this, but it is workable. Also, you have to push the buttons so hard. I usually have to use my thumb. I hope that they will break in with time and be less hard to push. I'm hoping this one lasts as long as the last one!

Nice size and easy to use. It replaced my 15 year old microwave that gave up the ghost. A friend recommended a GE because it's made in America and I'm all for supporting us! I've had other GE products and I've always found them reliable. So far, this microwave is living up to my expectations :)

Best Microwave EVER!

Johmayra 9/24/2020

Okay so first of the design is very clean, and beautiful. The features it comes with are outstanding! The fact that it can tell how long my food needs to hear, and to turn it over! WHAT!! We have never had a better microwave with so many amazing settings. It is also very spacious inside! I was able to fit my very large wooden cutting board to leave leftover pizza inside! The price was the cherry on top of the cake. I would recommend this microwave to absolutely anyone!!

Does what it's supposed to do.

GEWhoever 9/21/2020

I got this to replace another that didn't perform. This one does all I expect, plus it's quiet, the beeps end when I open the door or stop it. The beeps are not obnoxiously loud. The touch pad is ok. I would prefer if I could directly input time, but since everything else works well, I'll get used to hitting Time Cook first. It's power levels are good. I love having microwave bacon again! The door push tab is easy and doesn't move the oven when I push it or when I close the door. It's a nice easy open and close. Finding what I wanted in white was also getting difficult, but Lowe's had this one and I grabbed it. Glad I did.

Disappointed

Woodbooger 9/19/2020

I was very disappointed with this microwave. My old microwave, which was a GE brand, finally quit after 14 years of great service. I replaced it with this unit thinking it would be as reliable as my old one. But it was not. The unit did heat food placecd in it but the exhaust fan did not work. On my first use I set the timer for seven minutes but the fan did not kick in and the unit shut it down after about five minutes. It also got extremely hot to the touch and there was the smell of hot wires/motor. Returned it and bought a different brand.

chuck1224 9/16/2020

My first microwave of this model lasted me one day! It got hot and went completely dead. I thought I would give it one more chance since we liked the looks and features so I took it back and exchanged it for the exact same thing. We've only had it about 2 weeks and it is working fine.

This was a replacement of a 1.4 c.f. that worked great. After 6 yrs, it died and figured if the same model was still around we would buy it again. Came across this larger model at a great price so we purchased it. So far we've been very happy. It does everything we need and hopefully I'll work as well and as long as as our last one.
