    Paint started peeling first on outside bottom its in first pic , then it spread to under turntable, the microwave safe plates get hot, yes im still using because i couldn't afford to get new one . This microwave has only been used about 6 months it was new out of box. I kept trying to get orange to wipe off then realized its Rust,! Ive never seen this happen.

    Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. So sorry to hear about the issues that you've had here with the inside of your microwave. Know that one of our agents will be reaching out via email soon to investigate further. Thanks for your patience in the meantime. Best wishes, Michael@GEA
      Great Features!
      Add 30 Seconds Feature is Great! The look of stainless steel fits in great with our other appliances. The window and interior lighting allow a good view of cooking. One touch feature (hit the 1 for a minute of microwaving, 2 for two minutes, 3 for three minutes...etc.) is a really easy way to keep working in the kitchen simple.

              Compact and Reliable
              I purchased this compact GE Microwave specifically to fit inside a built-in kitchen cupboard. The enclosed space is too small for most regular microwave ovens on the market. After much research I discovered this GE microwave, which had the exact dimensions required. There are a few other compact brands out there but we chose GE to complement our other GE appliances. We never cook meals in this microwave, as it's sole purpose is reheating leftovers and beverages. A standard size dinner plate fits nicely inside, but taller items might not fit (i.e., a Starbucks Grande cup fits -- without the stopper stick). It's perfect for us, in more ways than one. It's only rated at 700W so it is a bit underpowered compared to larger units that are typically 1000-1200W. Sometimes we wish it had more power, but it works beautifully for our needs. After two years in daily use it has been 100% trouble-free. Given that this microwave is inexpensive and built for light duty, I wouldn't suggest it for large/rowdy families or where it would see heavy-duty use. I deducted one star just for being underpowered, but otherwise it's highly recommended, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy this model again.

                Perfect Size!
                We love the look and design. Not having a handle looks sleek. Was reasonably priced. Works well in our small space.

                  I think it's fair to describe this unit as complete junk. Aside from being disappointingly underpowered (claims to be 700W), in about a year's time, the interior has begun to rust out, an experience I've never had before with any microwave.

                    Great compact microwave!
                    We bought this microwave to have it fit into a built-in nook under our kitchen counter. It matches all of our other stainless appliances and looks great. Heats food quickly and evenly and is very quiet when running.
