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.

Greg453 8/1/2020

I'm replacing a 15yr old GE product that finally stopped working. I really like the upgrade & speed of cooking. Like others have said, the lights could have been LED, the clock display is extremely bright and I do miss the night-light timer feature from my older GE Spacemaker.

Loud and Bright

Penelope83 7/22/2020

I really did not want to have to part with our previous Spacemaker microwave but the product is no longer available. So we settled for this microwave, which just isn't the same. The keypad looks like it is missing buttons, but it isn't. The carousel plate is much smaller. The microwave is louder. EVERY dust particle can be seen on the surface. The blue clock light is SUPER bright to the point where it illuminates the entire kitchen in the dark. The vent fan has less functions and the surface light doesn't have a night light setting, guess we don't need one with that bright time display. Unfortunately, there is no way to dim it. I'm not particularly fond of the microwave but it does the job. Oh, it was also dented when we opened the box.

Our last microwave lasted 23 years, so we weren't sure if the replacement would suit our needs, or even fit in the old one's place. However the new microwave is perfect! The size is almost exactly the same as the old one, and the features are so similar that I didn't even need an instruction manual. It's well made, easy to use and nice looking. Very pleased

Easy installation, works great. There are two features that I would like to see change. First, the light on the bootom is all the way in the back of the microwave, so the stove underneath isn't lit up when you turn the light on. Second, the touch pad is very hard to see unless there is a lot of light available.

Penny321 2/10/2020

The device seems lighter more plastic than my older version, I hope it hold up to the wear and tear, I use the microwave at lest 5 times a day. The devise did not come with a glass tray that covers the bottom which makes it hard to cook oblong dishes

Easy installation. good power; lighting is weak

DiabolusInMusica 3/14/2019

This oven is a sleek animal, more powerful and also quieter than the 27 year old GE that it replaced. I like that you can activate it with one press of a number. The buttons take a bit of time to get used to - you need to press them dead center to get a response. Overall, we're very pleased, except that the lights, placed at the back of the underside, don't illuminate the stove below all that well.

BeachLoverInNM 1/14/2019

I've had this microwave four four months and am very happy with it. When I remodeled my kitchen I purchased GE appliances to replace my 30 year old ones (which still worked!). I chose this one because of the recessed turntable which can be turned off. Just read the manual and am excited about all the features (like the add 30 second button, and the buttons to heat beverages by oz and reheat leftovers). I love that GE appliances are made in the US. I also really love the web site. When I was deciding which appliances I wanted, I used the compare feature and read tons of information. I also had several live chats which provided me with additional information. I hope this microwave lasts as long as my old one!

Great microwave

angelinao 12/3/2018

This microwave is large inside and the door closes quietly. My only complaint is that the clock is a very bright white light and is a different color than the clock on my oven. I use the built in timer when I'm baking in the oven. My favorite part is that the timer continues to beep until you press the "timer off" button. On my old microwave, the timer would beep once and if you weren't in the room to hear it, you wouldn't know the timer went off.
