    GE 1.1 cf Stainless Steel Microwave

    For a 950 watt microwave, this appliance was a bit more bulky than I expected. However, that said, it is a very attractive unit and quite user-friendly. I appreciate the quick choice buttons for a single tap heat up of beverages and various other selections. It heats evenly and lets you know with four beeps when the job is done. I would definitely recommend!

    The noise level was unacceptable.

    I bought this microwave to replace a similar one that I had for many years with no problems. My first thought as I started to use the microwave is that surely I can't return a microwave because of the noise (which was headache inducing). But after 24 hours, I decided that I could return it for the noise. My next microwave will not be a GE.

    Microwave works fine. It looks good and does its job. However, it came dented. It doesn’t affect the way it operates, but I didn’t pay to have a damaged product. Didn’t feel like going through the hassle of sending in pictures and making calls to get it replaced, since it’s Christmas time and very busy. Would be 4 or 5 star if not dented.

    We needed a smaller size microwave to fit a particular area and most mid-size microwaves were an inch or two wider. It was a smaller wattage than we were used to, but decided to take a chance on it. So far it works perfectly and have not noticed needing a longer cooking time for anything. It is so quiet when operating that I sometimes have to check on it to make certain it is actually working!

    This microwave allows one to adjust the time and temperature with ease. The design matches the kitchen and has been a time saver when cooking. It is affordable, useful, and multifunctional. From popcorn to quesadillas, you name it, and this microwave works wonders! I highly recommend it as a gift.

    The clock works, and it melted butter for popcorn! 4 out of 5 for a hundred dollar micro because online chat suggested we could recycle dead micro at the store when we picked up new micro. Store refused to recycle old micro. New micro melted butter like a champ. Woohoo! We'll have to drive, again, to another location to recycle micro.

    Good Midsize MW

    Good midsize microwave @ sale price $79.99. Wouldn’t buy @ regular price. Has stainless all around. Most just have stainless on the front. Like that interior light comes on when door is opened. Not a feature many microwaves have anymore. Only negative is MW has a very loud humming sound when it first comes on. Seems to quite down somewhat after a short period but is still louder then our previous Sharp MW.

    I bought this countertop microwave for daily use to help our built-in microwave last longer. This GE microwave operates better than our built-in. It has great power options for quick heating of beverages and foods. The power is perfect and I can heat water for a cup of tea in less time than the built-in microwave.

    Fits the space and works well enough

    I keep the microwave on a shelf between my breakfast nook and the rest of the kitchen. The shelf isn't real deep and it's hard to find microwaves that will fit. This appliance is the smaller, less powerful version of a highly rated GE. The controls are convenient and it works well, it just takes longer to get some things cooked or defrosted. If it was 1000 or 1200 watts instead of 950 I'd give it 5 stars.

    Not a good choice

    There are several things I do not like about the microwave. It’s very hard to open. I have to push really hard on the opener and grab the microwave so it doesn’t slide off the counter. Then the controls are on a black background. I have to turn on the kitchen light to see them. The controls were not very user friendly.

    I really like the looks and size of this microwave. It has a light inside when the door opens and when it runs...a bonus as I found many do not. Perfect size for most dishes as I do not use it for cooking, basically reheating and thawing. I am not crazy about the number pad, letters are dark and hard to see if no light by it and you really have to push the buttons hard to get them to work. Otherwise a good buy.

    So Far So Good

    Needed a microwave that did not have a large footprint. This fit the bill. Though not as high a wattage as my last one, this zaps things just fine. It's a little noisy when closing the door, as there just is no way to close it quietly. It also tends to move on the counter top when you close the door. You may need to put some rubber footies under the legs and maybe the casters if you have it on a moveable cart.

    erroneous information

    Posted
    Irish

    Product specifications from Best Buy site say 10 power levels. This microwave does not have variable power levels. When I could not find out how to set lower power levels I called GE who confirmed that it has only high power and defrost. The GE specifications say "Power Level -10, Note the singular. This oven must go back.

    My selection was primarily directed by size. We needed to replace our dead microwave but had limited space. This one is the same capacity and that has been plenty of room for us over the last ten years. Happy with it so far. I think the kids have appreciated some of the presets. We haven't had it long enough to comment on quality. It is much quieter than our last one!

    Wasn't sure that something so inexpensive would look and work well. But frankly it is perfect for our operation. Looks great and perfectly matches the other stainless items we have. Operation is great also as it heats more thoroughly than our old one. Just wish it was a few inches less deep as it does stick out far from back of counter. No big issue though.

    Awful microwave

    I really wanted to like this microwave and it did work very well up until this past weekend. We don’t use our microwave a ton, but for basic meal prep. It did what was expected and everything was fine. Then the other day, almost to the day that I purchased it, it malfunctioned. Very disappointed GE, very disappointed.

    Dependable, small but plenty of room on inside

    This microwave replaced a GE microwave we had for over 15 years. It takes up less room on the countertop but can hold more inside. Our large, square, Noritake plates can oven spin in this one. It seems to heat the food evenly and is pretty quiet. Had it a few months and no problems so far. Hoping it will last as long as the old one.

    Bought this for my mother who is in her 70s. She wanted a microwave that is fairly small with a door that is easy to open and buttons that are easy to read and press. We went to the local BB to check out the selection and this was the winner. Took it home, hooked it up and tried it out. Thought I'd have to set for longer cook time since this is only 950 watts but this thing heats up food fast. Really happy with this purchase.

    GE Midsize Microwave

    While this is a basic oven, the midsize is convenient and it's value priced. The quality of construction seems better than that of the comparable GE this replaced. I recommend downloading or calling GE customer service for the full manual as the skimpy quick start guide packed in the carton omitted some key features that weren't apparent.

    had to replace an older GE Profile microwave that fit in a tight space... this new microwave isn't quite as wide as the old one which allows better airflow around the unit. It is more powerful, and takes a little getting used to for operation, but it works great and still looks like the older ones. Runs fairly quiet too... an improvement on an already good microwave oven.
