Love this microwave, looks great, works great. I love the convect feature.
Good product. Not as photo show. I ordered specifically for the black enamel interior. The shiny interior instigates seizures in an epileptic family member. Whdd Ed n product arrived it’s stainless interior. After going back snd forth with GE Cafe. Found out black interior is not made anymore. They are not responsible for stores to keep websites and sales floor up to date. 2018 was when model was updated to stainless only. Word yo the wise. Go to Ge cafe website and ask for specifics. Interior color was only change. The manual is exactly same other than the two words changed. Black ceramic to stainless steel. If a specific detail hs important do check with manufacturer. As all major stores websites and sales people didn’t know of the change. Also, the touch pad does not light up. Not even if the light under microwave is on or door open. Hard to see.
Operates as a microwave well.
Microwave works great the only downfall for me is the sides of the microwave on the outside of it are black when the front is white totally doesn’t make sense to me. GE failed in that respect if you ask me.
We bought the whole GE Cafe set and are very pleased with the microwave. The dial is a fun way to set the time and the fan/light sync with the stove to turn on when you turn on your range.
While not cheap, it feels rock solid when you open/close.
Good question. Based on our research, this model does not necessarily need to be installed above a range. It does, however, need to be installed between cabinets. We would not recommend installing this in an enclosed location such as a pantry. If you'd like to view the installation instructions for this unit, please take a look at page 7 of this document, here: https://products.cafeappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=31-2000103.pdf&_ga=2.115297991.1140685818.1582550950-1828393267.1565205481 - Thanks so much for your question! -Michael

A:AnswerHi Anita, thanks for your question! Yes, this microwave can be installed over a gas range! We're finding that page 6 of this microwave's installation instructions provide the mounting space dimensions for this unit to be properly installed. The bottom of the above cabinets need to be at least 30" from the cooking surface. We'd recommend taking a look at the diagram mentioned on page 6 if you have any other questions about the mounting space needed for this model. We hope that this helps! Stay safe. -Michael
A:AnswerHello - Great question! This microwave's door cannot be reversed. We're so glad that you checked and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thanks so much for considering Café! -Mikayla@Cafe
A:AnswerHello - thank you for reaching out. The case color of this microwave (the sides, top, bottom, and body itself) is finished in Graphite Gray. We will be sure to pass your comments along to our small appliance design team for consideration with future models. Your insights are very valuable to us and we appreciate your candor. All the best, Kelsey@Café
A:AnswerHello - thanks for reaching out. This over-the-range microwave cannot be used on top of a counter, as it is designed to be installed above a cooktop, range, or counter. Perhaps this smart countertop microwave oven will work for you: model #CEB515P4NWM. It has similar cubic feet and, just like the over-the-range microwave, it also has a convection cooking feature. Additionally, the countertop model comes equipped with a WiFi Connect feature that allows you to control your oven with your smart device or simply your voice. We hope this help! Take care, Kelsey@Café
