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.

Good product except

Marybu 9/2/2020

Beautiful appearance except that the prompts on the right side need to be bolder. Very hard to find "light", "30 seconds", defrost ", etc. simple fix is to make the queue in bolder white color against slate background.

Billy204 8/17/2020

This microwave matches all my other appliances perfectly. It has all the features I expected, but it makes less noise than I expected. I like the quiet operation and the Ready sign when finished rather than the annoying beeping sounds other microwaves make.

Microwave oven

Hair Trix by Angliea 8/6/2020

I love this microwave. Sleek design, great color. The display of buttons are minimal, I wish the settings were more of an option. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of purchasing this product to PLEASE BUY IT it's WONDERFUL. I would highly recommend that you register your appliances and read everything about the products. How to care for your appliances and services. This is very important the 1-year warranty is a blessing!

Do not waste your money on GE appliances

Diane E S 8/3/2020

I purchased a suite of GE appliances. I had this unit installed July 22, 2020. When you cook anything that generates steam, a fog develops between the door panels. The issue is not mitigated using the vent. I called one number they referred me to a second number. The GE rep said they are aware of the problem and no solution. I was instructed to call the store where I purchased the appliance to see if they address. Poor quality product, poor customer service.

Maggie1027 7/30/2020

Though a Microwave is "just" an appliance, it is also part of the kitchen decor, and is firmly established as a necessity in every home. I love the design and colors of the model we chose--very classy! All the features we could ever want are literally at our fingertips! In operation, this appliance is really very quiet, and I appreciate that a lot! The only negative is the loudness of the vented exhaust fan! I had hoped that replacing our 26-year-old unit would solve this issue, but I suppose there is no getting away from noise with this function! Fortunately, I don't often use the vent, unless something has scorched on the stove below! (smile) All in all, we are happy with our purchase!!

Bought this to replace a faulty higher model. Microwave works well and is extremely quiet. I almost can't tell when it is running. Heats well and even. Enough features to make it more than just a timed microwave. The reheat feature works well. Overall great product.

Easy Install

Steve24153 7/27/2020

This beautiful microwave came with all of the features we were looking for in an under cabinet/over stove appliance. It has two powerful (hi/low) underside lights, a strong two setting exhaust fan that can easily be adapted to your home as it can exhaust out the back, up through the top, or (with a quick adjustment)---it can recycle the air, clean/filter it--and then send the air back into your kitchen in the event that your kitchen does not already have an exhaust vent installed. The install was quick and easy (from start to finish--it took about 25 minutes) and was clearly explained in both written directions and also in pictures and diagrams that walk you through the entire process. I could not be more thrilled with this purchase!

Print on Operation Button Panel Difficult to Rea

Marietta Christie 7/7/2020

Chose this microwave because it was similar in style to our recently purchased GE gas range. The old over-the-range microwave needed replacing. I spoke to the salesman at the appliance store where we purchased the gas range a few months before, and he recommended this model because of its color and styling. It works fine - but as I explain further along in this review, It is hard to read the print next to the buttons. I find myself squinting and tilting my head to try to read and identify which button/control I need to push.
