Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Plenty of power & features, reliability not known

Martlet 74 3/31/2020

This microwave has more power than our old one so heating times are all shorter. Seems to have plenty of features, more than we're likely to use. We've only had it for a few weeks so can't comment on reliability. The door latch is already a bit stiff. Our old oven lasted 8 years.

Relatively easy to use!

Karin E 3/31/2020

Generally speaking this microwave oven is well designed and relatively easy to use. However, I'm 78 and found the clock ect. somewhat difficult to see. Moreover, I'm not use to the number pad being automatic. If you forget to push the "Set Time" button the oven starts automatically for whatever time you push. But I'll get use to it!

I love this microwave because it doesn't take long at all to heat things up; mostly 30 seconds will due for a plate of food, any longer than that the food is too hot.

GE - Microwave

C Wife 3/26/2020

I've been researching microwaves since mine needed replacing. This GE microwave has 1.6 cu. ft. interior, and the overall dimensions fit well in the allotted space on my counter. It has more features than previous ones I've owned. I especially like the "Add 30 sec." but as the instructions note, do not hit it more than once. I've used it for heating tea water, reheating leftovers (reheat button plus time works great), but not for regular cooking food, so I can't speak to that.

Pastor Bob275 3/24/2020

Microwave works great. After using a 900W for over 6 years the 1150 is taking some getting use to, put the presets work great. I have two complaints. The first is the light ts not bright enough, put I had heard that complaint before. The second is that the buttons are hard to push due to the fact you have to push the exact spot and that spot can be hard to find.

DDFranks 3/17/2020

Our old microwave died after 10 years of service. We wondered if we could get a larger one so I could fit pies, caseroles, etc. in it. This one fits the bill. It was priced decently and has many features. The print is a little hard to see, but other than that, it is nice.

Fills a need

55Steve 3/10/2020

This is an adequate microwave with a little more than basic functions, most we will rarely need. We went with the larger size just to accommodate dish size for reheating and thawing. it takes up a bit more counter space than the one we replaced. The only "complaint" so far is the door release button is a little wonky, have to push it I just the right spot to open.

Nice color, fits into the space we had for it.

bsfr 3/10/2020

Seems to work well. Had a hard act to follow. We had a used Amana since 1990. The interior light in the GE is dim and the keypad quite stiff. Other than that, it seems to be fine. Oh, I don't really like the feature that has it beeping constantly after the time is up but it does remind you to push buttons in spite of being annoying. As far as why we bought it, it was about the only brand that wasn't an over the range model. So there was not much choice but it was a reasonable price.

Mistered007 3/4/2020

Several months ago, our old microwave went belly-up, and we bought what we thought was a good replacement. It never worked well, and wore out amazingly soon. As soon as we bought our GE, we knew this is what we should have gotten in the first place. Very good size, easy to use and works like a charm. NOW we are happy again.

EdTheSewingMan 3/3/2020

This MW replaces an older GE, the new model does not have a very bright interior light but it does perform well. The controls are not very intuititive but once you get the hang of it the oven does a very good job of reheating etc.

The light for the clock is very dim.

This unit should have been recalled and not available for sale. The retailer would not accept return because I did not have original box.
