Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great microwave

Cara20 6/13/2022

We love this microwave because it fits neatly in the corner of our countertop. It is easy to operate. The only issue is we think the microwave was a return because there was a large hole in the box and the defrost turbo defrost gizmo wasn't in there. We couldn't return it for another microwave because we had a hard time finding this one and there weren't any others on the shelf.

MikeNLisa 5/27/2022

We've had this microwave for 3 days! So far, we love it, it is very spacious and can do everything you need. The only option I wish it had was the quick time select, where you push one button, and it will cook for that amount of time. The user manual has many helpful hints and cooking times with stratigies that we like. Overall I think it is a great microwave!

TeeJae 5/20/2022

Love this microwave. We had the same model for 10 years and I was delighted that the same model was still available when my old one when kaput! This model has an LED light which I love and buttons are easier to push and the door button is too. This model is larger than most but has been my preference because you can use larger dishes inside with this capacity. It hasn't disappointed. My old one (same model)lasted 10 years whovh I think is about normal these days.

GE makes good stuff

CraigS248 5/8/2022

Our last GE microwave lasted 38 years. This new one looks and works great. One small issue is the new 2.2 cu. ft. microwave display is a little to high and can not see the top right clock number such as a 7 when viewing on a counter top - have to bend down to view the top part of the number.

We like the large size in particular since it allows us to cook and warm large items (e.g., turkeys and hams) faster, more evenly, and without using our oven.

Great Microwave

Sierra1 3/29/2022

This model is my favorite. I liked it so much that I'm replacing my current microwave with the same model. The only reason I'm replacing it, is it is starting to rust on an inside seam. The machine itself is still working great after 10+ years. I expect the new one to do the same.

The product is great. 2 things would make it excellent: 1-better/stronger way to open the door. The push button feels week and cheaply made. 2-it needs an install kit for wall mounting it.

Best Microwave of Its Kind!

GardeningGirl27 3/16/2022

We already owned this GE microwave model for over 30 years! When the old one started to make more noise as it worked, we looked for a newer model. Luckily, this microwave in a lighter updated model was available! Hopefully, the new model will work as hard and last as long as our old one which we boxed up and gave away as it still works like a champ, only noisily.

yoganurse 3/11/2022

The first one of this particular microwave lasted 20+ years and finally gave up the ghost a week and a half ago. After looking around at a zillion different models and sizes I chose to get the exact same one which is this one. It's a great microwave, a nice larger size and many good features. I was absolutely thrilled that they were still making it.

2nd one owned after 4.5 years

KathleenSJ11 3/5/2022

After the first one shorted out after 4.5 years, we loved it so much we got the exact same model for our 2nd microwave. We used the microwave at least twice a day, so my Dad believes we got our money's worth. I love that I can heat up a whole 9x13 glass casserole dish. Hoping this new microwave lasts just as long as the first one.

Overpriced, difficult to operate, door open broke

DisapointedMicrowaveBuyer 3/1/2022

Purchased on Christmas eve when a great Microwave (not GE) died after 10+ years. Could not find newest version of that model in stock anywhere and I needed microwave immediately as family was arriving for Christmas. I noticed on the store model that the open door button would not open unless the very top of the button was depressed. I liked the variable power feature and in the hour I spent researching, I determined that this was a mandatory feature. Took it home and installed it on the counter since the outlet and the microwave plug did not align. I later added an additional outlet and solved this problem. GE could have solved it with an right angle plug like my old microwave had. THE GOOD 1. Very hot, 5% hotter than last oven 2. Sensor reheat, Works well, a little hot for some foods, never fails to deliver hot food. 3. Nice large display/ selection panel 4. Large cavity 5. Rotating plate works well 6. Easy to clean THE BAD AND UGLY 1. Poorly designed door open switch. GE should recall this. It will break and will not be covered by warranty. This should have been a showstopper for me and I should have returned the microwave to the store immediately. 2. The power Level does not work like all modern microwaved work. It works about as well as the earliest digital clocks. The power level must be pressed and repressed until the desired level is selected. Then the time must be entered. Directions are "hidden" in the manual. On line GE documentation for all GE microwave operation states that you can enter the cook time followed my the power button and then the digit for the level. That appears to work, but it does not. No error indication is provided, it just leaves the power on high and overcooks your food. I finally tested the power operation on water and then operation was obvious, researched the manual and was able to do power "correctly, but painfully". 3. All the sensor buttons basically do the same thing. There is insufficient documentation in the manual and very little help via the control panel. My 10 year old microwave had a list of the operations for sensor cooking on the inside of the door which was adequate. So it is just a bunch of confusing buttons with inconsistant operation. 4. The power level failed completely. I had not registered the product since I was already planning to return it to the store. and was unable to find any help on the GE site. The help was mostly fluff and not for real problems. I took it back to the store, but was told that returns were allowed for only 30 days. I had returned items from the "big box" store several time and thought return time was 60-90 days for appliances, guess they have a different rule for some appliances. Now I am stuck with this lemon. Remembering that some appliances have faulty firmware which can be reset by pulling the plug for 10 seconds, I realized that there was a chance that the pulling the plug when I tried to return the microwave might have "fixed" it. It did. It is still an overpriced poorly designed human interface with a broken open door button.

ChesterCat 3/1/2022

My over-the-stove microwave went out so I decided to get a countertop model until I could get a replacement. I am so excited about this microwave because it is easy to use the power feature and it has so many selections for side dishes such as potatoes, vegetables, rice, etc. With the popcorn feature you select the size of the bag you are popping. So far, I love this microwave!

NatalieDT 1/21/2022

I have had this microwave for a few months now. Here's what I like and what I don't. Pros: -it's really large! You won't have trouble fitting anything in this puppy. -Really nice looking! It has no black except for the numbers panel. I really like this bc it blends into my island so nicely and looks sleek. -Heats nicely -Defrosts well -Has a lot of neat features that are hard to explain quickly. Cons: -No 30 seconds button. I did not realize this when I bought it. It has been very hard to get used to this since my last three microwaves had this convenient feature. -It is so large. I've listed as both a pro and a con. I've been using a dorm room sized microwave for a couple years so this thing feels absolutely enormous. More to clean. Unnecessarily large for daily use. -The handle needs to be pressed towards the top or could break over time I think. I say this because the one on display at my Lowe's was broken. So I think it's something to be mindful of. Overall, really like this microwave!
