DO NOT BUY the GE Cafe Microwave


Like other reviews, within 1 year the keyboard needed to be replaced due to the high heat of the stove underneath, the handle gets extremely hot and I no longer boil or use high heat under his portion of the microwave. The magnetron tube just went (on...

Looks Nice and that is all

Unreliable, handle gets scorching hot and ventilation is horrible

3rd replacement microwave since 12/09 - say they can replace with another model -but we purchased the cafe gas range so our appliances match - they say "that is all they need to do under the terms of our warranty" - but I did not agree to spend almost...

Don't Buy for Ventilation....


The product looks good. The microwave was used primarily for defrosting and warming up. No complaints. The kids loved the ease of use.

Kid Friendly; Nukes well

Completely worthless for ventilation. My builder's grade 10 year old appliance worked better

GE Microwaves suck


Easy to operate touch controls, Large Capacity, Convenient access over the range top

The touch controls do not work after one year. The reason the location of the microwave above the range top and the controls get really hot and quit working. The only way to get it working is to replace the controls unit.GE wants $500 for that part. Not w

You should NOT have to buy an extended warranty for these expensive products. I mean really they should at least last 5 years or more. Or is that too much to ask when you buy expensive appliances these days??? The joke is on the consumer.

Looks good, like the blue led display

The touchpad went out in the first few months we had it. Was a big issue to replace. Installer was a jerk, came out twice. GE not customer service oriented. Now the third year we owned it keypad went out again!!! Before it went out the microwave would get

The GE Cafe Microwave has SERIOUS Design Flaws!


We redesigned our entire kitchen around the recently released GE Cafe line - and it looks stunning! The range is great, the 'frig is outstanding... but the-over the-range GE Cafe microwave is a disaster!

It looks really nice - especially since we installed it so that our kitchen looks exactly like the brochure

The GE Cafe over-the-range microwave does not work appropriately, if at all, when placed over the GE Cafe range

Consumer review by:

Be prepared to be burned!


2 Major issues. Put a pot of water on the stove, it doesn't even need to boil, and the handle above (even when installed according to GE standards) gets blistering hot. GEs service tech had the nerve to say "Heat rises." Note - GE Profile doesn't have...

Matches the GE Cafe Oven

The heat of the GE Cafe handle and the display on the microwave (the touch pad) disappears when boiling water

Consumer review by:

GE Cafe Microwave Safety Hazard Beware!


I have already issued a complaint a couple of months ago. Since then I have once again burned my hand on my microwave. I purchased a GE CAFE set a few months ago. The individual units work fine, but when the microwave is above the stove/cooktop, the...

Nice look, cooks well

If you buy this product with the range/oven and install the microwave above the range, beware. The heat from anything you boil below the microwave heats the handle so much that it exceeds the UL rating maximum 131 degrees. You will burn your hand
