    Great until it breaks!


    I loved this microwave until it died yesterday! I purchased this microwave 14 months ago and it worked wonderfully until now. Now, everything appears to be working except it won't heat anything! From my research, the magnetron appears to have died, which costs almost as much as a new microwave to replace. I won't be buying anymore GE products, especially microwaves!

    Reliable, quiet, easy to use, easy to clean


    This is the 4th microwave I've had in this custom-built space in 15 years. We use them A LOT, I'd say it runs on average 1/2 to 1 hour every day, total. Cook whole chickens, fish, vegetables, you name it. This one lasted about 6 years. We have been happy with the GE microwaves, this was our 3rd one. (The Panasonic didn't last very long and had a weird cardboard panel inside.) I like the way the light works, giving you a great view of the food cooking as well as being able to see to clean the inside. Others, the light doesn't stay on when you need it, or it doesn't light the whole inside evenly. So even though ours just died, we plan to replace it with the exact same model.

    Not worth the price

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I picked this product because of GE's usually good reputation. Because it was big enough to hold my casserole dish and the look of stainless ....BUT after 10 months of moderate use it died last night . Powers on but won't heat ! ....expensive boat anchor!

    Not worth it


    I bought this microwave 3 years ago to replace a Sharp Carousel we'd had for 20 something years. From day one there was a breeze that came from around the door seal and the door didn't always close completely. You had to give it an extra push. I would have returned it but I am disabled and can't move it. Today, it just went dead while cooking. Nothing. No power. And just 1 week out of the protection plan coverage.

    Good choice for a mid-size microwave

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I had purchased 5 different stainless steel microwaves (1.2-2.0 cubic feet - GE, Panasonic, LG) before settling on this one. Besides the LG2010ST, this was the only microwave that actually had the required features we wanted (true sensor cook - that works, an interior light that goes on both when the door opens and when the microwave is operating, and good quick-operation buttons). The size was just right for our countertop area, not too big (like the 2.0 cubic footers) but still large enough to handle our biggest food containers. Food cooks quickly and evenly. The interior light remains lit when the door is open and when cooking (many other microwaves no longer do this - which is outright dumb). Easy to use and looks very classy next to our GE Profile Stainless french-door fridge. Very quiet too.

    great little microwave


    We have always had full size microwaves but have downsized recently. This microwave has a small footprint but does the job of a full size. It's easy to use. It's the quietest microwave I have ever used

    Great value for the $$

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I like this microwave - more powerful than any I've had in the past (boils water about 30 seconds faster, for example).
