Bought this microwave a few weeks back. It's very spacious. It has plenty of space inside for 2 lbs of frozen chicken breasts. The controls are easy, despite a lack of specific information pertaining to them in the user manual (but who reads those things anyway?). The lack of distinct defrost settings for types of frozen foods is disappointing. The easiest way to defrost is by weight, but some of the foods come out starting to cook, while others are still slightly frozen. And that's after weighing them on a food scale before defrosting. All the other presets for reheating and heating (pizza, beverages, plates of food, soup, etc.) work very well. The only complaint is that beverages sometimes come out a little cooler than I like, but an extra 10 seconds always works. I don't use the microwave to cook, only defrost and reheat, so I can't say exactly how good it is a cooking anything other than oatmeal. In terms of looks, this microwave isn't going to win any beauty contests. It's not just not pretty, I find it a little ugly. But for the price and the fact it somewhat matched my stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher, it's worth it. It's not like I'm going to invite people over to see how it looks or stare at it for hours on end as an inspiration in design. It works. That's all that matters.

I've had my microwave 2 months now, and I am generally satisfied with it. I like the fact that the control panel is white with black letters and is easy for me to read, but it takes a lot of force to push the buttons compared to my old microwave. I have to push with extra pressure, something I definitely don't like. I'm not weak, but I do have an arthritic thumb. As far as the timer goes, it should be down at the bottom by the cancel and start buttons. On several occasions I have pressed the "timer button" when I meant to press the "cook time" button, and then I'm left wondering why the oven didn't start. The "timer button" is definitely in an inconvenient place. I love the bright surface light. It lights up my stovetop beautifully! I also love the "add 30 secs." and "Express Cook" feature. I went to check the vent filter the other day and found it cheaply made. I put my finger through it by the tab as I was trying to replace it. Very frustrating. All in all, I will learn to live with the differences in my new microwave and adapt to the features, but I will probably not recomment this GE to a friend.

Same size and manufacturer as original microwave. Very small mounting bracket change required it to be changed. Bracket holes and top cabinet screw holes moved necessitating new holes and complicating a simple replacement. Holes everywhere! No value in brand loyalty! Disappointed!

Had our kitchen remodeled and did away with microwave on top of counter replaced with over stove microwave.
We recently did some upgrades in our house and one of those upgrades was a new microwave. We are so happy we did.

Our last one, GE Convection Microwave, lasted 8 years. The new is the same but with no convection which we did not use in the old one. We got the new one home and got the bracket installed and the fan set up to come out the front. Just before my wife set in in place we decided to try it out first Good thing because the display did not work. The Second unit is working well. We have been very happy with the GE products.

Replaced our 12+ year old GE microwave today. The new model is quieter, with a brighter surface light, and overall sleeker design.
