I got this to replace a 20-year-old GE microwave of about the same size. The space I have is just under 24" wide, and I was concerned this wouldn't fit, but it just makes it, and the door opens fine. The LED display is very clear and bright, and I got it in white which I think makes the buttons easier to read. I'm particularly happy with the fact that the turntable can be turned off so that I can use wider pans sometimes. I also really like the Express Cook featue, where you can just hit any number from 1 to 6 and it starts cooking immediately on High for the specificied number of minutes.

Things I'm not so crazy about: when using the kitchen timer, it only dings once, which means I have to listen mroe carefully than with the old one, which made four beeps. As I saw in some other reviews, it doesn't feel quite as solid as my old one - I wouldn't go so far as to call it flimsy, but it seems a bit "tiinny." You have to press quite hard on the button to open the door, and the machine sometimes moves back slightly from the pressure applied. Not a big deal, but not as good as the old one. Biggest problem was that the power cord is shorter than the old one, and it comes out of the far right-hand side of the back of the oven. This meant that I was short about 8" from reaching the outlet that the old one reached easily, so I had to find a short heavy-duty extension cord for it.

The Pros far outweigh the Cons for me, and I would recommend this microwave, especially if you need it to fit in a tight space.

This is the one and only option or upper cabinet depth microwaves so we had to resolve to be okay with it regardless of it's flaws. It's small, but big enough for reheating leftovers and building it into the cabinets allows for leaving counter space free. There was a small dent on the lower part of the door of our appliance right out of the box, ABT was great about exchanging it but the replacement has a series of small ripples in the stainless steel in the same location so I'm assuming it's a manufacturing issue. We bought a GE range at the same time and there seems to be a number of quality control problems with that as well so we'd think twice about choosing GE for any future purchases. If you're planning a kitchen remodel, I'd recommend a lower cabinet built-in microwave so you have more choices.

Satisfactory MIcrowave


from St. Louis County, MO, United States

I purchase this microwave to replace the previous version that we had custom cabinetry built for during a kitchen remodel 3 years ago. The previous microwave broke within 3 years. This microwave works ok for general use. The keypad is hard to press. The previous keypad was softer, but maybe that was a problem and why it broke on the first one. The timer only had one sound when it ends and does not keep on ringing like the previous version. I tried using the beverage sensor, but the sensor takes minutes to "sense" before it starts to heat...I don't have 6 minutes to warm up a drink. In summary, it works fine, but I don't expect it to last more than 2-3 years.


Nice Space Saving design

Small microwave big power


from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Downsizing from 1800 watt, I expected radical differences in duration of cook times but that has not been the case. I use it generally just for reheating and for cooking vegetables that "steam in bag". I did not want it over my range. It is cabinet-depth which made off-the-counter an option.


Quiet and good for it's small size


from Concord, CA, United States

I bought a couple months ago. Had to replace a part but works great after. Quiet and strong for its size. I would buy again


Great features and easy to use


from Metairie, LA, United States

I have been very pleased with my microwave. It offers several selections for cooking but is extremely easy to use, and its sleek look compliments the other kitchen appliances.

Excellent Microwave!


from Maryland, United States

I am really liking this microwave! It has nice lines andcan do so many things. I love that it doesn't have a clock. My stove has a clock, and I also have clocks hung, so I'm glad it doesn't waste energy on that function. So easy to use. Streamline, doesn't take up much space. Excellent piece to have in your kitchen, and will go with any design.


Quieter than my old microwave oven!


from Saratoga, CA, United States

I bought this to replace the exact same GE unit. The new unit get A+ for being much more quiet, but a C for being a tad bit larger in all three dimensions so it took a little work to get it to fit into the same enclosure.
