This microwave works well and doesn't have an extremely loud bell like some microwaves I've owned. GE stands by their products and replaced the first one I owned when the magnetron went out. They delivered a brand new unit and my warranty started over with the new installation date. I will continue to buy GE.

This microwave is functional. My main gripe is the keys are very hard to see. Everything is black and nothing lights up when you're trying to plug in time, etc. I think i was too cost-conscious and should have gotten a nicer one.

Comments about GE Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

I bought this because my husband cleaned my nine year old GE and ruined it by exposing the metal inside. This one is similar, but a bit more powerful.

Alright

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about GE Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

I was looking for a good value that would be sizeable enough to heat a lot of leftovers and cook evenly. This does a pretty good job. It is very powerful. That said the features are not very intuitive. I am sure my microwave can do more but from the buttons it is hard to know what is going on and how it is working. I would recommend this microwave for basic uses but the "bells and whistles" are not there.
