Great Features Easy To Use
Easy to use. Fit perfectly in our spot. Was easy to install. We had a GE from years ago purchased in 2008. We liked that one so went with GE again.

    Nice SS Countertop Microwave
    I love this SS countertop microwave. I used to have a GE XL 1800 over the range microwave and got broken after more than 10 yrs. This is really a very good and best brand for me when it comes to appliances. Lasted for a long time with us. I got the countertop this time to free up my space over my stove, coz i sometime used big steamer to cook and the oven range microwave was always on the way of my big steamer. Very nice capacity (1.6 cu at 1150 watts) and easy to heat up food in a quick time. I love it!!!

      GE microwave
      We did a kitchen remodel and love all of our new appliances. We went with the farmhouse look & these black/stainless steel appliances really pop. Love the look & the efficiency.

          Sleek design, perfect fit for our countertop
          I’ve always been pleased with GE products so, when I needed to replace my old reliable GE microwave that I’d had for nearly 15 years, I went with GE again. It’s the perfect size for my kitchen counter. Favorite features are the express cook and add 30-second buttons. Express cook allows me to put something in and just push one button (1 - 6) instead of pushing three digits (1:00 - 6:00) for cook time. The sensor cooking options also saves me time. I’m very happy with my purchase and know I can trust the reliability of GE to know this one will last for years.

            Easy to use.
            This product replaced our previous GE microwave. This one is even better than the previous one was. We use our microwave a lot and are very happy with the ease of use. It has many different cooking options that are easy to understand. Appearance is excellent and goes well with our cabinets.

                Sooo Easy to use!
                We love our new GE Microwave! We're replacing our old GE Microwave that lasted almost 20 years! That's unheard of these days! This microwave is simple, just like our old one, and it even has the info taped to the inside front opening for help, so we don't have to look it up...(that's for my husband to use..ha!) Thank you, GE, for ALWAYS making your products last a long time, easy to use, and reasonably priced! We're lifelong GE fans!

                    Elegant Looking Microwave
                    We purchased this new GE microwave to match our other GE appliances and replace the older microwave which suddenly stopped working. It is beautiful looking microwave and has excellent features such as sensor cooking, 30 sec Add, and power levels to meet the cooking needs at a reasonable price. It is spacious inside and is easy to open and close as compared to our previous one where you have to pull the handle to open it at a risk of pulling the microwave forward. In this just press the button and it opens smoothly, no force required and no risk of sliding forward. The best thing I liked about it is the cooking guide on the inside as you open the microwave as shown in the attached picture. Once you place the food inside the oven, look up the guide what button to press and for how long, close the door and start the microwave. I gave it 4 stars because it feels the turnstile is not smooth initially when we started using. It might get better and smoother over time once the turnstile wheels start rolling smoothly with extended use. Otherwise I am fully satisfied with our new GE microwave
