We needed to replace our microwave and we were trying to match our stove (GE)...closest we could find was this microwave, and I was a little worried about the color matching...it says black (w/stainless) but the picture made it look more like a dark slate gray. I was so relieved once it was installed to see it was actually a perfect match (black) to our stove, and not the dark slate that appeared in the picture. Simple buttons-handful of specific buttons (popcorn, melt, etc), express times, but really all that’s needed unless you’re a gourmet microwave chef. Inside gray flecked enamel was a big plus over the white inside of our last microwave that started peeling within the 1st 2 years, and foresee it not showing every little thing like the last one that became my nemesis...a good weekly cleaning should suffice instead of a daily cleaning.
I purchased this to replace another GE microwave that had it's motherboard go bad after just four years. This model is basically the newest version of the old one, so I'm hoping it holds up better. The mounting bracket had changed, so that I had to install the new version to fit this new microwave, but it wasn't that difficult and I had in and running inside of an hour. The microwave itself works fine and we've had no issues so far. One thing we like over our previous model is the inside cabinet is made where the walls and bottom are indented so that it seems bigger and has more space inside, and the bottom can potentially catch any spills and overruns that might happen during cooking. The keyboard layout is a little different, so we're still adjusting to this but all of the many features available are pretty much the same.
Easy to install yourself. You do NOT need a bump out kit unless your cabinets are deeper then 15” even if you have a 36” opening width for an older microwave like I do. I unfortunately listened to bad online advice. The filler kits are hard to find and are back ordered everywhere as of this writing but I was able to find one on eBay. Check the General Electric site for the right kit for this model as there are different ones. Marking a centerline is most important. One last install tip: don’t over tighten the bolts on top because the receiving jackets will lose their grip.
My wife love the darker stove-like interior and says it’s much easier to clean then the white ones. Worth the extra money
This is a replacement for a Samsung that didn’t last as long as it was expected, my wife actually hated it. We had a GE Microwave previously and lasted several years under heavy use, so we decided to get another GE based on that experience. The new microwave was easy to install with the help of another person to hold it in place while screws were being put in place. And the most important part, my wife is happy with the performance and functions of this microwave.
We have had this about a month now. Love the features on it! The express numbers and melt features. 4 stars only because a little noisy. Love that it automatically runs fan if oven heats up below too much. We bought it I’m June for $259 before price increased over $200.
