Only lasted 3 yrs

Had to get a new one @ July 2023. Would continue to run even after the door was open.

Love It!

I love this microwave! I bought it as a replacement for a bigger GE microwave that had stopped heating at any setting but high. That microwave was purchased in 2016. Since I am a prolific user of my microwave at 20%, 30% and 70% settings, depending on what I'm doing, I really need all power levels to work. I decided to go with the black stainless steel because I have all black appliances in my kitchen but I wanted one less likely to show fingerprints. My old black GE microwave was terrible about fingerprints, but this black stainless steel one is great! It stays look clean and pretty. The defrost setting works better and more quickly than my old microwave - so do the potato and popcorn settings as well. I did find that the beverage setting does not work well for reheating my tepid morning coffee - apparently it's for heating from cold to hot. It had my lukewarm coffee boiling! So, I have to use the 30 second setting for reheating coffee. The interior can old a 13 x 9 pan, but the pan is be too big to actually turn on the turntable without the pan corner hitting the interior wall. My fix for this is to turn the turntable upside down so it doesn't turn and I rotate the pan halfway through cooking. This microwave is a lighter weight than my former microwave and I had to put a grip pad underneath it to keep it from shifting on the counter when the door is opened or closed. But, I do love this one! Hope it lasts me a long time!

So far so good,fit in my custom cabinet meant for a kitchen aid micro that didn't last and was much cheaper

Good buy

Good price for a good quality microwave. Doesn’t really heat like it says because we still get some cold spots on food but I’m used to that

No more GE for me!

We bought 3 of these so far and only 1 of them ever worked. One came out of the box bashed in on one side. The external box was in great shape, so it actually came from the GE factory badly damaged. The second one had a turntable that did not turn and food was barely cooking in it. The motor for the turntable was shot. I will never buy GE again and it's a shame because they used to be my preferred brand. No quality control.

Mid size Microwave

Fits space nicely. Just what I was looking for to go with our other slate color GE appliances.

Great Value

This GE microwave (countertop) is a great value. We bought an entire kitchen of Slade Gray GE appliances and later decided to buy a countertop micro - searched and searched and only found the over the stove type until finding what I actually needed at Best Buy. It does everything we need with efficiency and no fuss or muss. Based on my experience, I recommend this microwave to others.
