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.

Good product.

By npburch723

from Montgomery Village

Comments about GE Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

I don't like when you reheat something and you check to see if your plate is warm, you can't just hit start and have the timer pick up where it left off. The timer needs to be cleared out and you need to start reheating your plate from the beginning. Also, I don't like that it doesn't show you a time when you are reheating. Other than that, no complaints.

Powerful

By Dscovel

Comments about GE Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

Very powerful and consistent oven. Only problem I've had is the light bulb burned out within 1 month of purchase. Unfortunately, this same light bulb, is NOT serviceable by the consumer. It has to be replaced by a technician.

I like the fact that I didn't have to set clock, or program anything, etc before using and that it doesn't flash the wrong time or other error message.
