had similar microwave - very pleased with this one


We don't have a lot of room so we needed a small (black), but powerful microwave. This one fit the bill. It came in the mail as promised. The size of the carousel is a little smaller, but the vents on the side are closer to the front of the microwave...

Lasted Only 14 Months


Bought this unit after owning my previous GE countertop microwave for almost 20 years. The new unit recently died after owning it for only 14 months. After reading that this is relatively common, I won't be buying another GE small appliance.

Powerful and not too large


We have enjoyed this new microwave; it is very powerful with lots of room for larger dishes. Our only complaint is the lack of distinction of the control buttons. The "time cook" button and the "start" button, which are the main buttons for our use, do...

LOVED the power, quit after only 2 years


Loved the features, little bit of extra power for its size, perfect fit for my space, but only lasted EXACTLY 2 years with LIGHT daily use. I do not cook in a microwave, only reheat and defrost, and only a 2 person household.
