Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy Love this microwave!
I read some negative reviews of this microwave but decided to purchase anyway. My old Adora was 8+ years old and needed a new costly microtron to fix. I decided to purchase another Adora as I liked the appliance and it matched my frig, stove and dishwasher. My husband and I installed it. We had no problems with installation, nor did we have problems with the door aligning to the rest of the unit. We did, however, have a problem with the vent staying on constantly. The manufacturer came to our home within 4 days of installation and corrected the problem within 5 minutes. I would recommend this microwave, especially if you need it to match your current appliances.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by raeliak Happy with the performance... BUT BE FOREWARNED
Bought this microwave along with a matching stove. The microwave cooks quickly and I like it very much HOWEVER the door is sagging 1/8" - just as rip44 stated. Thinking that I might be too critical I asked my teen to check it out, and he noticed it immediately. GE came down and checked it out and the guy indicated that there was no adjustment for the door alignment, and he recommended that I have Home Depot replace it. Guess what - the new unit is also misaligned (check out pic). When I checked at the store I was not surprised to see that the store unit was also off. What's the deal? This is just pathetic quality control!

Did the install myself. Went well. Instructions were adequate. Product looks great and works great after one week. Good features. Will update review if we have any problems.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KentuckyGal DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!
Not long after buying this microwave, it started making a weird buzzing noise. Now it doesn't work at all, actually everything works except it doesn't heat the food. Pretty important feature in a microwave! And, it's out of warranty, it was expensive and I would recommend steering completely away from it! Does have nice features, but those features are pointless in a microwave that cannot heat food. Buy something else. We are shopping today for a new one and will definitely buy a different manufacturer. And it heated unevenly. We should have taken it back once it started making the noise, but didn't. Hopefully, our next one will last longer than this one did.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gatsbygirl One year out and working great
I've been using this microwave for a year. No complaints. In fact, what I am most pleased with is how evenly food cooks so it doesn't splatter nearly as much as my old Whirlpool. I had no idea food could cook more evenly in a microwave without having to constantly stop and stir.
The basic controls are easy to use, with some nice quick cooking buttons. I occasionally use defrost and popcorn settings, but don't use any other features.
Stainless steel finishes are always a problem with streaks and fingerprints, but the GE finish is better than others.
Bonus, I like that you can turn off all the annoying beeps. Nice!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware Garbage
This is the worst appliance purchase I've ever made. I bought it as a set with the GE Adora range and refrigerator. It lasted less than 2 years. I noticed the door was misaligned as soon as it was taken out of the box. I called GE and when the service rep came out and looked at it, he told me the doors are assembled in a way to allow for some movement and it is not a defect. Um... I don't care what you call it, it shouldn't be misaligned. Less than 2 years later, a loud buzzing sound starting vibrating through the entire unit when I shut the door and wasn't even using it. I had to unplug it to get the noise to stop. GE came out again and took it apart. They charged me $89.95 just to come out. The estimate to replace the defective parts (monitor switch and main assembly, which GE still uses in other models), plus labor totaled $383. A brand new microwave cost me less than that. The model is now discontinued and after my experience with it and after reading all the reviews, I can see why. The product is just a piece of garbage. Between this experience and problems with a GE washer, I will never buy another GE product again. If I could give a rating of zero I would.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frustr8ted Acquired poor microwave
Bought a house a little over a month ago and it has all new GE Adora appliances. They are beautiful. I use the microwave to mostly heat bottles or make tea or reheat food. The sticker in the microwave says May 2013...tonight I put a cup of water in to make tea and when I went to get the tea the screen was blank. It won't work at all, but it did heat my tea. Now my husband is mad at me for "breaking it". After reading all of these reviews I don't think I did anything wrong however the damage is done. Reviews were very helpful. Bottom line DO NOT BUY!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RXtech Great microwave!
This microwave is great! It looks nice and has a lot of useful features. The melt/soften button works perfectly on both butter and cream cheese. The buzzer when it is done is loud enough to be heard, but not annoying. The light has 2 settings, and the lower setting is great for a nightlight. The fan has several speeds. It is a little loud on the High Boost, but I never need to run it any higher than medium anyway. I have never had the problem with the crooked door that several people have complained about. All in all it is a great microwave and I highly recommend it!
