    Best choice on the market today

    After just over 21 years, my GE Spacemaker XL microwave began malfunctioning - at that age, repairs would be so costly it made more sense to purchase a new one rather than try getting the old one fixed, so it was off to Best Buy (and a few other stores) to check out what was available. This Frigidaire Gallery model had the features I wanted - white interior for better visibility, a removable extra interior shelf, stainless steel finish, correct size, and generally good visibility of the numbers and text on the keypad. (Except for the light and fan buttons, which are dark gray on a black background.) The new oven runs more quietly than my old GE ever did. The power level adjustment runs backward from what it should and some of the food cooking program features aren't the greatest, but all things (including price!) considered, this was the best replacement microwave choice for MY kitchen on the market today. Best Buy also price-matched a local home improvement store's sale price, so I saved a couple of bucks. So right now I'm generally happy with this purchase. We'll see how long this microwave lasts - but I bet it won't be 21+ years like my old one!

    3 years in and the finish has issues

    Posted

    This line has a "smudgeless" stainless finish. It's actually a clear coat on a stainless that has low nickle content and high iron content. This actually allows a magnet to stick to the "stainless". However, DO NOT put magnets on these appliances as the clear coat will scratch. In addition, the clear coat on our microwave has started to show spots. It looks like it's not clean, but it's actually a flaw in the finish. The other appliances are not doing this, just the microwave. This microwave also has the world's MOST ANNOYING beep at the conclusion of a heating cycle. It beeps three times as if once isn't enough. It doesn't sound like that big of a deal but it drives me NUTS! If you don't run over to it right away, it beeps 3 more times, and so on and so on. I've actually thought about researching a hack to reprogram the thing... it's that annoying!

    Excellent so far

    Posted

    I'll update this after a few months if I can, but so far so good. I'm coming from a $1000+ 8 year old Whirlpool which had every option, most of which were unused as I use the microwave mainly to reheat or defrost. This unit is very light, sheet metal is as thin as they can make it, makes me wonder how durable it'll prove to be. Features are great, 1-touch 30 second, 1, 2 & 3 minute cook times, easy manual programming & numerous sensor modes, 10 power levels, a good manual, and it has excellent lights on the underside. The unit is very quiet in operation, if you use the fan, it's much less noisey than the Whirlpool, so it seems pretty quiet to me. You can vent internally or externally, for the latter you flip the fan unit in the rear. Power is about equivalent with my old unit, which is good, that thing was 1200 watts. Boils a mug of cold water in 3 minutes.

    This microwave was not to hard to install but it definitely helped to have a large box sitting on the cooktop (directly under the microwave) and then used two more cutting boards to close-up the gap so no one had to support the weight of this big machine while doing all the fitting etc. The instructions were fairly clear & we were doing a replacement unit, not new install, so it wasn't too hard. We could not use previous unit holes but close. Good instructions for various exhaust possibilities. Helps if you have done some construction projects and have good tools. Needed some shims because of tile backsplash. Nice looking unit. Love the two LED light bulbs. Very bright for our dark cooking area. Unit works well so far.

    This is a beautiful microwave that matches my stove - same brand and model. It is very quiet when cooking (compared to my previous 1993 microwave). When you turn on the fan it is loud but that’s expected. Nice led lighting inside and on the bottom. The inside surface has a ceramic layer that makes it easy to clean. It was not too difficult to install it. The template for where you drill the holes on the top were transposed so do your measurements 2-3 times and use common sense before you drill.

    The above the range Frigidaire Gallery microwave is a powerful force in the kitchen. I purchased this as a floor model as the price was beyond affordable. The only concern was it didn't come with all the required parts to install it. A quick call to Frigidaire and the parts were shipped immediately. I appreciated the customer support by Frigidaire and will buy future Frigidaire appliances as a result. I am able to cook things with ease and confidence with this microwave.

    Great microwave

    Bought this and the electric stove to go with it. Easy to hang, worked great for the first few days and than the Megatron went on it. I will be bringing it back for a replacement because I like it so much. The sensor heating works great. You can always get a dud in any manufacturers unit. Jason and Ryan at the Collegeville,PA store are the best two best buy employees I have ever dealt with.

    Nice looking microwave. The black stainless is a very attractive addition to my kitchen appliances. I am hoping to add a black stainless freestanding range in the near future. One minor drawback on the microwave: when your item is finished and the completed signal starts, you must hit the stop button or it will signal relentlessly. Can be an annoyance if you are not near the kitchen.
