GE can do better, but won't
from Chicago Area
About Me Avid Cook
Comments about GE Black Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
We have owned 4 (maybe 5) of these units and their immediate predecessor models. We keep buying them because they fit the space. None have lasted more than 5 years. We would gladly pay $100-$200 more if GE (or someone) would just make something more reliable that would last 10 years. But of course, they wouldn't make as much money. Each replacement has included cheaper materials than the previous one. In fact the one we just bought was even less expensive than the last one we bought 5 years ago. The 2.1 cf model has a dial selector; we prefer the all push button touch pad, but that's only available on the 1.9cf models (or smaller). If we had repaired our old model, the control module alone was over $500 (no labor). We bought the new model for less than that. Everything is throwaway now. The new one seems to work fine, although I have noticed it doesn't cook popcorn as well as the older version. It's the same old story when it comes to manufacturing products these days. No one makes anything that will last. If they did, customers would flock to buy their product.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt and on time. Love ABT. Have done business with them for 30 years. I just wish the companies that made the products would build a better product, and that applies to ovens, washers/driers, dishwashers, all appliances. I recommend this product only because there's nothing out there that's any better. Sad state of affairs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to use controls; uneven cooking
from Buffalo Grove, IL
About Me Casual Cook
We use this mainly for defrosting and reheating. It is fast and easy to use, but doesn't seem to heat as evenly as our old one.
By Happy cook
from Lisle, IL
I keep finding new & useful features. E.g. you can set it to heat a meal for x mintues at one power level followed by y minutes at another level. The controls are intuitive - haven't had to look in the manual. I like the halogen lights under the unit. It seems well made.

...it's a keeper

I am favorably impressed by the versitility of the unit. All the options that I have tried work very well. I have no complaints.
