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 and 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.

fogging problem

Submitted by smitty42 - The microwave was purchased because it would fit my cabinet opening without any changes. The 3 star rating was because of several items. An electrical plug that fits close to the wall would have been a plus feature. The most annoying problem is the door fogs up and the item in the microwave cannot be observed. Not only does the inside of the door fog up but the area between the outside and inside of the door fogs up. Wiping down the inside of the door using a paper towel with a drop of hand soap helps but the area between the two glass panels is not accessible.

Very Powerful Microwave

Submitted by Compuguy2142 - Works well, good interior space and interior light. Looks good. More powerful than our previous unit so we do need to re-adjust the cook times to less seconds for the same output. Using the same time will be too much.

Submitted by B and P G 1971 - This replaces a W.P. microwave that didn't last six months. got off to a rocky start, the first one GE set was damaged from the factory, but they made it good in just a few days. Even during the pandemic. MW is quiet, has all the balls and whistles that we will ever use. Great for popcorn or preparing dinner. We would recommend this product to anyone who asks.

Average product

Submitted by AZ shopper - Looks good but a few items I would have wanted on it. Don't like that the timer will not shut off without hitting the timer button. Or that it has the option to program it to. Also don't care for having to hit the cook time before entering a time other than minute intervals. Also dimensions did not account for the bulge in the back of the unit. That added about 4 more inches to the unit.

Submitted by EB20TC20WA2019 - I wanted a microwave that didn't beep after the door was opened and this was one of few that had that. The first one I bought was left at our previous home so bought this 2nd one for our new house. It's powerful and reasonably priced, two more important features.

User friendly

Submitted by Kimbo1977 - I bought this GE microwave to replace another GE microwave that I had purchased when moving to college 20+ years ago. In fact, the other microwave still heated but the turn table would not turn. I hope that I can get even half of the use of the new one that I got out of the old one. It is bigger than my previous product, but the functions are very similar and it is very user friendly. The keypad is easily visible. It was easy to install and set the clock. I haven't owned this one very long, but I am happy so far with the wattage output for re-heating and defrosting.

High power with sensor and good capacity.

Submitted by Bens microwave review - Bought this GE microwave after my old microwave met it's untimely demise due to being operated with no food inside for several minutes. Anyhow this microwave has a lot of power to heat foods quickly and a sensor to ensure foods are cooked properly. We typically use it every day for cooking veggies for dinner and reheating other food for lunch and breakfast. Controls are easy to understand and operation is simple. It is everything we wanted in a microwave.
