I replaced a 25-year-old microwave with fear and trepidation, as I think today's products are not nearly as well made. So far this product performs fine--but I've had it only three weeks and cannot comment on its longevity. It is twice as powerful as my old microwave, good size capacity, and easy to use, even though it is more complicated. I selected this microwave partly because it has a "turn off turntable" feature for large dishes that don't have room to turn. It has a timer that works when the microwave isn't on, so functions as a separate kitchen timer. And it has a "reheat" feature that automatically reheats leftovers--sometimes a bit too hot. It also has a volume adjustment for the beep, which I appreciate, as I have turned it to the lowest setting. I tend to not use the automatic cooking features, so don't know how well they work. The only thing missing is that my old microwave had a "keep warm" feature, and this one doesn't. I probably could replicate that with the lowest power but haven't tried it yet.

great while it lasts

This model matches our other GE appliances in the kitchen, so we have continued to buy it. We're on our 4th one in less than 10 years. I really like its performance, but just wish it was built to last longer than a year or two.
Replacement for old GE of same size
By golf nut

The old one we had held up for 10 years. Did develop rust like condition around door but over-all was a good machine. This one is .2 CF larger but fits in same under counter opening. 23 7/8" wide. Do wish you had stainless steel in that width but could not find it. All seemed to be 241/4" wide. Good quality for the price.

This is an awesome microwave, just replaced and it looks better than the first one
All you really ever need in a microwave oven
from Ocala, FL, United States
Bought as replacement for non-GE brand unit that fried itself after less than 2 years of operation. This GE unit was meticulously packaged and secured, including the carousel and its drive carriage. Due to the very good ratings (which is why I purchase this unit), I expect to get many years service from this appliance - time will tell.
Excellent! Large capacity!

I bought this model 15 years ago and worked it to death! So glad the same size and model was still available. When something works well we want to keep using it!

This model mutes the button sounds and the "ready" buzzer which is important to our household with everyone working crazy hours, the quiet is important. I don't know why this feature isn't on all microwaves
like the rounded inside, back of microwave, easier
By barb 1947

had the microwave a week ,Really like that its quiet and does a better job thawing meat evenly than my old one that I paid $500 for only 3 years ago, the main part went out and would have cost more to repair than I paid for this one!!!! They make the one I had in our hometown, so going with another brand was a big decision, I am glad I did!!!
I've only used it for a week and the ease of operation is very good and the inside turntable size
