Silent microwave

Stainless is a little hard to maintain. Have to clean more often thanks to the finger prints etc. But very silent operation and does its job well.

Buy with caution. This is not a economical microwave, it is a cheap microwave. Most of the unit is plastic or very thin metal and does not have a solid feel - I'm not really expecting it to last long. I am disappointed with what could be good features are under designed. The cooking surface light is "night-light" bright and the fan is rather noisy on both high and low settings and the display LED does not seem to match the other GE appliances I have, the numbers are small and hard to read. I was looking for a solid "basic" microwave with decent features #do not really need/use features other than basic cooking, defrosting, cooking vent and surface light# and this unit is really underwhelming. I'm also a bit dissapointed that given it is 1.7 CF unit they did not make it "shorter". The door is curves down in the middle taking up some height from the cook top and it seems odd that the unit I replaced #1.9 CF# has the same physical footprint #again a missed opportunity#. Why even make a 1.7 or 1.5 if they are the same size. I was hoping for a solid unit with basic features but got a cheap unit with marginal features.

A must have with your Range/Cooktop

By 

from Terrell, TX, United States

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

We were torn between the convection/Speedcook and decided to go top of the line on all the Cafe' series. We couldn't be happier. Between the microwave, gas stove, the oven and the warming drawer we can cook just about anything and do it all at one time. Thanksgiving and Christmas couldn't have been easier. We actually sold my mom on upgrading all her appliances as well. We had read reviews about the handle having some issues but the must have changed it because we have had No issues at all. The speed cook will really amaze how fast a little microwave can cook. This isn't your mothers microwave, this is the real deal.

Excellent microwave

By 

from Acampo, CA, United States

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

I bought this microwave approximately 6 months ago. It has been working perfectly. It's highly efficient. I haven't taken the time to figure out everything that it can do but I am super happy with it's performance so far and it looks good too!

Keyboard shorted

By 

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

Keyboard shorted after 4 years and it costs a bundle to repair. My other microwave is 32 years old and still works fine. It is not a GE.

good function, nice appearance

By 

from Mineola, NY, United States

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

Remodeled my kitchen and installed this above our range.  The microwave has a great size and power, it is visually appealing.  The one negative is the fan for venting sounds like a jet engine, yet is not very effective.  Still a good product.

GE used to make quality products

By 

from west palm beach, fl

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

Only three years old, used sparingly, key pad doesn't work, so unit doesn't function. cheaper to buy another new one than fix, pretty sad. Ovens and washer and dryer bought at the same time are just as poor....

Good microwave...so far....

By 

from California

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

I recently upgraded my kitchen and bought this microwave to replace my countertop one. I really like that it is over the range. I haven't used it that much, yet. One thing I noticed is the right portion of the door sloped a little bit after it was installed. It seems like a small part of the hinge is missing...........

Stopped Working After Only 4 1/2 Years

By 

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

I am not happy that the GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven installed over my oven stopped working after only 4 years and 6 months. The first GE Microwave installed over my range lasted 7 years before it died. Is this normal for GE Microwaves?

A little disappointing

By 

from Monroeville, PA

Comments about GE Spacemaker Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

The controls and overall appearance of this unit are really good. I like all the flexibility of cooking choices and timing features. The reason I rated it lower is because of the interior shelf. The position of the shelf is so low that it is impossible to use the shelf and the turntable simultaneously, and the shelf is not at all sturdy.
