My 20+ year old GE Space-saver microwave broke 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. Thinking everyone must now make microwaves that are compatible to installing under a cabinet, I was shocked that after several hours on the internet only GE still made one. Only using microwave for reheating and defrosting, didn't want to spend a lot of $. Seeing an add for ABT while searching online, I called their store. The product was the same price as others, but ABT had it in stock. The ABT rep then informed me that GE made a smaller model for a substantial savings. It's a little less powerful, and obviously much smaller, I told rep Id have to check with wife. After convincing wife I called ABT back and asked them to put it aside, I would be by to pick it up tonight ( a round trip of another 70 miles, that would have cost me 2+ hours of my life and $10 in gas). The rep replied, "we can ship it to you for free, should be at your house in 3 days". After picking myself up off the floor, I said heck yea! It arrived on time and mounted using that same kit I had used on the one 20+ years ago, so I saved even more retuning the mounting kit. The microwave reheats, defrosts and makes our popcorn. The preset buttons are almost identical to the one we had before, and now have even more room for our mixer on the countertop in our small kitchen. Thank you GE for the product, and thank you ABT for the incredible service!

Early problem, but works OK after repair
from Grand Junction, CO, United States
Comments about GE Countertop Black Microwave Oven:
Purchased this 0.7cf microwave oven to replace a previous 0.7cf GE microwave (that I had ruined by mistake). The new unit's heating element (magnatron tube) died 23 days after getting it (had heard an intermittent buzzing when turning on from the day we got it). Replacement magnatron tube finally arrived & repair technician got it replaced 1 mo later (guess the small microwave magnatron elements are not commonly stocked at parts suppliers). The microwave oven is now working OK; we appreciate its small footprint (limited counter space in the kitchen) and having something with which to heat up leftovers, warm up water/beverages, and prepare microwave popcorn. It has taken a bit of time to get used to the differences in the control panel between it and the prior microwave; the new one has the "Express Cook" feature (new) which automatically turns the unit on for "n" minutes when one puts something in and presses the numbers 1 - 6 on the control panel (i.e., the "n" number of minutes).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

needed one for under the cabanet and there hard to
It works ok but the adapter to turn the carasel is to short and keeps working loose so when that happens I have to take the dish, turntable and adapter out then have to push the bottom center of range and that makes it work for a while.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Dimensions are wrong
Some web references list this is 9-7/8" tall. Others list it as 10.19" tall. The latter is correct. I wasted a lot of time ordering one of these since I trusted the GE appliances web site.
from New York, NY
The compact size was most important. The "one touch" features were an added benefit. The microwave is quiet and simple to use.
This unit is small, compact and so efficient
from S.Palm Beach,Fl
I wanted a compact microwave to fit in my limited space in my condo. Most small microwaves were poor quality, but this GE unit was perfect. Small, compact and very good quality. I love it. It's pretty, too.
Over all: a great choice! Fits me to a "T"
from Syracuse, New York
I love this countertop microwave and use it many, many times a day. I've used it to make frozen meals, leftovers, reheat my coffee, heat water for tea, warm milk for the kitties, defrost the porch cat's dinner!, and make whole meals! It looks great and matches my GE stove!
