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!

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).

Having looked for quite some time to replace a built in microwave at my home, this product was the perfect size to fit the previous built in. Has plenty of features for our household.

Perfect size for us

We are not big users of a microwave. Heat up coffee or some food items occasionally, so not willing to devote a lot of space to the usual huge ones. This one is perfect for us, it was less expensive and allows our limited space to be devoted to other things. All operations are good... so far, so good.

I've been looking for a small microwave oven to fit over my wall oven opening, literally years with no luck. Finally success GE did it! Easy to use and it works great. It may be small, but works very well. Even better than my big one, a gentler heat thanks GE.
Small but mighty!

So far, so good. Fit in a cubby we designed for our new kitchen and it has been quite useful. My plates and bowls fit in it for rewarming.
too small computer goes wacky express cook too limited
