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.

Lucy A 6/10/2020

I recently had my kitchen remodeled. The previous microwave sadly outlived it's life expectancy so I bought this one as a replacement. It looks perfect in my new "Reborn" Kitchen!

I was looking for a white microphone for the counter. I didn't want a tiny one that wouldn't even allow a tall mug to fit and this one fit the bill. It has good power, turntable, and looks good. I'm pleased with the heating capacity.

Great Counter Top Microwave

j20crispy 6/9/2020

We purchased this model after having our prior GE counter top microwave for 19 years. This new one has a great appearance and performs well. While we are getting used to the sounds and lighting, we are hoping this one lasts as long as the last!

It cooks a little hotter than my old one

JHJAMESTOWN 5/28/2020

You have to push the buttons hard, the clock light is very dim, hard to see, unlike my old one, the microwave sweats during each thing cooked which I really don't like, unlike my old one.. The door close's really loud unlike my old one. It looks like you would make them better not worse. The ONLY thing I like about it, is it cooks a little hotter than my old one

Excellent microwave with power to cook food, not just reheat. My previous two units did not have sufficient wattage to do anything other than reheat. I love my GE microwave! It also came in white, not as a special order. I've done the stainless look and I hate it!

debpm59 5/26/2020

This is a great value. Has good features. The only complaint is the odd wattage of 1150 which does not match cooking times on most microwave products which is usually 1000, 1100, 1200 etc.

keithl914 5/26/2020

Our old microwave conked out and we needed a replacement fast. The GE model was one that was available at our local store. I compared it to the other ones available and the GE model won hands-down for features, size, color, price, etc. We have had it for just over a month and are very happy with it. It has a modern appearance and the keypad is laid out simply. It also heats the food well, too.

I like this microwave, It is not expensive and it has a good space inside to heat your food. It is a bit noisy but still quieter than other brands. My previous GE lasted 24 years. I do not know yet how long this one will last. Time will tell. I will be back.

I really love this microwave the ease of just hitting the sensor buttons and the express cooking buttons makes it so much easier than trying to punch the minutes or seconds in. I did popcorn and it came out perfect, also reheat on my coffee was great too. The size is perfect and the price was great.

everything you need in a microwave

MikeMLV 5/13/2020

We needed a new microwave fast and this was the best one reviewed. It works great with the exception of one thing. It seems as if it gets too hot at full power when reheating items. We've tried it at power level 8 or 9 for reheating and that seems to work fine. It also works fine at full power when cooking frozen dinners. All in all, this is the most convenient and easy to use microwave that I've ever owned.

22 years ago we bought the house were are in, it was 1 year old and all appliances were GE I have the same appliances today that were here when we bought it, two weeks after moving in the microwave we had died so I bought a GE. Tens years later it died so we got another GE and just last month after a 12 year run with that one we had to replace it so of course we bought another GE and love it.
