    I loved this microwave when I first got it. Cooked well, attractive looking (relatively speaking), handy +30 second button. It was all well and good until two weeks into use when I started to smell a burning scent every time I heated food. Then, after using it for almost 30 days on the dot, it stopped working right in the middle of heating. Best Buy has a return policy of 15 days (what?!), but I decided to call customer service anyway. I was advised over the phone by a Best Buy representative that even though it was outside of the return window, to bring the microwave to a Best Buy location and trade it in as part of their “trade in policy.” Well, I drove 40 minutes to their Simsbury, CT location to do just that... and was told by a “manager” that “I don’t know who you spoke to, but we don’t do that.” They then outright refused to dispose of the microwave for me, so I had to schlep all the way back home with it in my trunk. Side note: in the meantime, I was desperate and purchased a new microwave of a different brand from Best Buy, and it came without an essential part and could not be used. Nevertheless, I will never, ever purchase from Best Buy again. Awful customer service and extremely unhelpful. I am still without a microwave.

    Good Microwave Oven, easy to use w/great options

    I purchased this GE microwave oven to replace my old GE microwave oven that I had for 23 years. This microwave has a turntable , with a glass removable dish..easy to remove to clean after spills. I love the timer option and the single 1 min - 5 min one touch activation. The weight of this microwave oven is much lighter, even the door feels much lighter than my original microwave oven. I like the GE style and brand and must say that I feel that it is the better choice in Microwave Ovens. The manual that comes with this unit is not a complete manual, I keep discovering new features on my own. The lack of a detailed manual is why I gave only 4 stars..The reheat feature seems to overheat the food a bit if left to rely on just the internal sensor, not sure if this is caused because I use a microwave lid when reheating foods..need to continue to experiment. I like the beverage button, as it heats my cold coffee to a nice temperature. I have used the defrost feature to defrost meats, this feature has been greatly improved. Overall, this is a great Microwave oven, I recommend it.

    Good microwave for the price

    We had our favorite microwave (Kenmore) go out on us recently and we were so used to how convenient all of the controls were (simultaneous cook time/timer, intuitive time settings, size) so we went with this one. The one-number time default settings are a little annoying as you have to press "time cook" if you want to enter an exact time, otherwise, you're stuck with how they programmed it. When the cook-time timer expires it beeps infinitely until you open the door (very annoying). I suppose this would be a good feature if I were 97 years old and could barely hear but usually 3 beeps is enough to indicate something is done. Also, when you push "Timer" and then enter the amount of time, you have to push the "Timer" button AGAIN to start it instead of START. Not very intuitive. There may be a way to program all of these settings to make it so you don't have to endure these steps, but why should I? Though these are annoyances, they are things you can get used to with time. The microwave works very well and cooks food evenly. But if you are willing to spend more money on a more intuitive control panel out of the box, do it. It will probably save you some misery in the coming years. I think Kenmore got it right with my old microwave.

    The 1 I bought was not a good choice

    This GE microwave had 2 features I really wanted: I could see through the screen in the door and an interior light that stayed on while the microwave was running. The door did not shut tight about 50% of the time and it would not start until it was shut again. The interior light stopped working after about 2 weeks. I called GE and they made an appointment for someone to come to my house to fix it. No one showed up after I waited all afternoon for them. I called and was told this model would be replaced and not repaired. I emailed the info they requested and had to call again to get them to send me a Good Will Certificate to redeem they had promised to send when they received the requested paperwork. I have purchased a new microwave of the same model and now must send in the certificate and receipt to get my money back in 8 weeks. None of the above is explained at all in the warranty information that came with the microwave. Very disappointed!

    defrost works poorly

    I had an old GE 1100 Watt microwave that I really liked but that finally died, so I thought this would be an easy replacement. Turns out this one is not nearly as good. The first one of these I bought had legs/base of different heights so it sat crooked (and could be rocked) and made a very loud motor noise when in use (the noise lessened if I lifted up the corner so it sat flat). Luckily, Best Buy let me return that one and I bought another of the same model. The new one is only slightly crooked in how it sits on the shelf and does not make the terrible noise the other did. However, I use the defrost function quite a bit and this works poorly. About half way through the defrost time it starts beeping and saying "burn" even though nothing is burning. So I have to hit pause, wait a few seconds, and then hit start again, and it finishes defrosting. It's very annoying to have to babysit my microwave every time I want to defrost anything.

    OK, it has been 2 months since we purchased this microwave. The LG we had (which we liked) bit the dust and we needed a new one. After doing extensive research we found this GE model. After 2 months of use we are very pleased with the GE microwave. It has met all of our needs. The keypad is great and it has all the features we wanted. The interior lights up when the door is opened and also while food is being cooked. The popcorn button works well for the brand of popcorn we use. The timed cook function works great as do the programmed cook keys. The only problem we had early on was the unit would slide when opening or closing the door. We solved this by placing a 2 inch wide strip of wood behind it (between it and the counter top back splash) - problem solved. Maybe they can change the feet to something that grips better, don't know.

    GE Micro

    The microwave we had which just died yesterday was a 900W GE compact turntable microwave from 1993. YES, we could not believe it lasted this long either and everything had still worked on it. Comparing wattage and similar features we chose to stick with this mid-size model but still a GE due to the reliability of all my GE appliances. This one has the features we required: at least 1000W, a turntable, interior light, full digital panel options, and left swinging door. It is slightly larger than the compact but still fits in the same counter space. Works great. Medium potato in 5 minutes; half a spaghetti squash in 10 minutes. Yes, there is that new appliance smell but it is fading and you CANNOT taste it in your food. very happy.

    This model is very similar to the one I had before, that lasted 4 years, There are some changes that I noticed, the door frame is plastic, with a metal insert. It took some getting used to, as the door will flex and you have to push it closed from the bottom right corner to close it securely. It also seemed to take about a week of use and the odd zapping sounds when starting went away. Break in period, I guess. Also the full instructions are on GE website now. But we liked the looks of our previous GE microwave and the functionality. The fact that it is white with no chrome, it fits in. It works too. The other brands have similar sizing but not the wattage. This has plenty of wattage and does things well plus has the turntable inside that actually works better than our previous GE microwave.
