Perfect size

Danielle94 5/11/2020

This is the perfect countertop microwave. The size is not too big and bulky, but not too small. I love the black stainless color, however I was hoping to match my refrigerator that is also GE in "slate." This size microwave doesn't come in slate, but the color is close to matching. It looks very sleek and stylish without being overly expensive. It serves its purpose and works great. No complaints.

Works well

Gman3855 4/9/2020

I have had bad luck with the last two microwave ovens that I purchased, one lasted two days before it quit. With this one I have had it for three weeks and so far so good. It does cook a lot faster than my old one but that's something I am adjusting to. So far so good.

Just user t reheat...

Jon558 2/24/2020

Well this is the second one we bought in 15 months, not because we like it so much, the first one quit. It was cheaper to get a new one than th have the other one looked at, and no garantee how long it would work. Does what we want it to do.

Sleek Design, Great Color

JGuess81 2/3/2020

So far we love our new GE Microwave. It's sleek, quiet, has great features and the color ( which has been hard to find thus far) matches perfectly with our other Non-GE appliances. We are very pleased.

Fredricka44 9/22/2019

We are having some issues with transferring knowledge from our old Amana Radar Range, which we owned for 20 years. Functions with this unit generally are more programmed and result in surprises. As we get more familiar with it, however, it is pretty clear we have a winner here.

Meets our needs

BlueMaize 7/1/2019

We had to replace a 5 year old GE microwave that had a bad door connection. After three years of gently adjusting it each time we closed it so it would actually microwave, we had to throw the towel in. We love the finish of this black stainless one and it closely matches our other GE slate appliances so we're happy. ... as long as the door latch issues doesn't resurface!
