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.

This microwave does the job

We needed to get a microwave after our last one died. This was the best one for the money after checking out at least five different stores.

Wow More Features Than I Could Have Imagined

11/29/2018

We had a microwave that finally gave up the ghost that had given us many years of good service. This GE unit is larger and has so many more features than I have ever seen before. We look forward to putting it through its paces and it is a GE a trusted company name Has more watts than our previous unit so husband discovered it doesnt take 90 seconds to warm up his coffee. It was ready in about 60 seconds. He is going to check out the beverage feature. It is like opening a brand new toy on Christmas morning. Thanks GE

Great microwave with all the features you need

11/24/2018

We only picked up this microwave yesterday but we know already that we love it. It replaces a predecessor model that suddenly died apparently the result of debris in the circuitry not really the fault of the microwave. We need a microwave as close as possible to the same size since it had to fit in an opening. As luck would have it the new model is practically the same size so it was a no-brainer. We really like the simple button layout and features. I have seen microwaves with more bells and whistles but I think this one will do anything most people want to do with a microwave certainly all we need.

Newly purchased but it seems to be a good buy. Only problem/gripe is that the sensor/pre-programmed info on the inside of unit is WAY TOO SMALL

Compact and powerful

11/18/2018

This compact powerful countertop model is a functional alternative to the large built-in that we had for many years. We house the unit in an eye-level cubby in the kitchen cabinetry its perfect for us. We mainly use the microwave for reheating liquids and leftovers.

Black sides/white back/stainless front

Disappointing that the only stainless was the front. Our last GE microwave was stainless topsides and front. Like the extra space and power.

piece of paper inside that rips easily
