It is decent microwave. looks nice and match up with all the other GE cafe appliances I have in my new kitchen. I only used oven function once, and it seems much slower than regular oven. I dont think you can use that for your baking etc. I just hope the GE cafe series have simplier and cheaper microwave so I can pay less for it since my regular oven is much better. I just need a microwave for heating something quick but it matches whole kitchen look. If you dont care, you dont need to spend that much for this. Also, the inside has stainless metal, somehow, it got colored stains like burned that I am not able to clean it off. I tried different cleaners, no matter what I do, it is still there.

We bought this microwave when we remodeled our kitchen. Turns out that you cannot install it in a cabinet without the trim kit, which is in fact more of a ventilation system. We had issues with the control panel steaming up underneath the glass, tried raising the microwave up, then had issues with steam getting on the cabinet above the microwave. Our cabinet is not deep enough for the trim kit so now we are looking for a different microwave. Also, the trim kit costs almost 50% of the microwave! Ouch!

Great! Get the trim kit too!
from Fernandina Beach, FL, United States
Bought to put over French door oven. Love the microwave, but if you get this, get the trim kit too. It gives a built in look like the oven. Love it!!!
New Microwaves Are Awesome
from Poway, CA, United States
I'm replacing a pretty old GE microwave, which worked fine, but like the rest of our appliances was about 20 years old. So of course the new one is great, and I'm glad we opted for the convection option. But I do miss being able to add time to the cook time while it's cooking, which this does not. And while it looks nice, needing to use a dial instead of punching in numbers on a keypad isn't ideal, but surprisingly it's not that bad either. Most of all, it works great.
Good one to choose
Comes with easy to navigate options and fits perfectly

I like this microwave, works similarly to my last one that I also liked a lot... different manufacturer. Fairly easy to use without reading the directions, have had no problems with it other than I notice that when I steam veggies some of the steam comes out part of the top of the door and my (very expensive) new cabinets get wet, I am unsure if this is normal. Also, the time setting for cooking only goes in 15 second increments.

I recently updated my kitchen with GE Cafe series and I am so pleased. I had the combination microwave convection oven installed and added the trim kit, it's beautiful. Still learning how to use it.
Better than the one it replaces
from AIken SC
My Sister got one several months ago and she loves it. I have cooked on hers several times, liked the features (similar controls to mine, size, ) and except for not having a GRAB HANDLE, liked the convection oven vs my old browning element (which I NEVER used). My old GE died after 8 years of HARD use. SO this was a NO BRAINER. It matches my Convection OVEN and Inductive Cooktop so everyone is pleased. LOVE the stainless Interior.

I like the large capacity inside for larger dishes and plates. I also like the LCD scrolling readout that displays instructions for you if you press the wrong button. I am not so happy with way it wants you to enter or choose. Sometimes you press the knob to enter and other times you turn the knob to enter (confusing).
Didn't realize what I was missing!
from Bloomington, IL, United States
I purchased this microwave last fall just before Thanksgiving. I must say it is much more powerful than our old Amana Radarange from 1995! For one thing, I didn't realize that older microwaves lose their "zap" as they age. I noticed my cooking times are reduced now, due to the newness of the microwave. I love the reheat button feature. No longer have to guess what times to reheat leftovers! Either one or two pushes of the reheat button adds reheat time. Food comes out hot and evenly cooked. Love this microwave! Have yet to use the convection feature but that will come later. As a microwave it works just fine!
Has many great uses.
