We are remodeling our kitchen and purchased this microwave as part of replacing all of the appliances as part of the remodel. This is a great looking microwave and it matches beautifully with the GE slide in range we purchased. It vents into the kitchen and has a charcoal filter to clean up the air. 3 settings on the vent- low, medium, and high(turbo:) Love that you can soften- not melt butter, it has a steam clean option, and is just an all around great microwave. I am really partial to the GE brand. Have a 6 year old counter top GE microwave that still works great- and our son is happy to have it.

The control panel of the unit is behind a tinted shield, making the text of the buttons very difficult to read unless the room is under bright conditions. The deficiency is made very clear in comparison, as the visibility of the controls of the GE Range located below the microwave are significantly easier to read under all conditions. I've attached a picture of the microwave control panel and the range control panel to illustrate the shortcoming. Easy reading of the controls should be of paramount consideration. A back light or simply brighter text would have helped to a very great degree. By the way, my vision is 20 -20 and I'm not the only family member dissatisfied with situation on a daily basis. The microwave seems to perform it's functions well and the sensor reheat appears very accurate. I would have rated this model 4 stars were it not for the deficiency of something so fundamental as the control panel. It's not something you notice under the bright lights of a show room. It's only when you have the unit installed and under working conditions that the inadequacy becomes readily apparent.

We're very happy with our new microwave. Always purchase GE products for reliability and cost but this new interior make it so easy to clean
All the features I need
from Troy, MI, United States
Microwave was purchased to replace an existing device and has so far met our family's expectations. It possesses the right amount of features that we can use and has a 'pause' that our previous microwave did not have.
Good features, but difficult to keep outside clean
from Huntsville, AL, United States
I purchased this 3 months ago. The microwave performance is great, but the task of keeping smudges off the front is constant. One use and the outside looks like it's never been wiped down. Recommend a different surface finish.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Cumming, GA, United States
Bought the microwave Dec 1 2016. The microwave worked 3 weeks. Repairman found a defective control board. Back in service Feb 24 2017. Last GE microwave lasted 15 years with no problems..
Large & quiet
from Denver, CO, United States
We were replacing an older GE model which was working great, despite being old & busted up by previous tenants. It was a tough decision to go with a new model when we could have just replaced the handle on the old. This microwave is way larger and surprisingly quiet.
Good product for the money.
from Ohio, United States
Only reason product wasn't given 5 stars is there's not a backlit panel.

I bought this hastily because our other microwave burned up. I does not have some of the features our other he microwave had with the sensory cooking. Thought it was a step down from what we had
Well made and easy to use
from Houston, TX
This was a replacement for a similar GE model that was 16 years old and lost the tube. Overall this is a very good machine. It has one problem. The operating panel has no back light and the letters and numbers are not highly visible so there are occasions when my wife must use a flashlight to see the buttons.
works as advertised
from Kingsport, TN
