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 and 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.

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

First one broke, second one doing good

Submitted by Papa DM - 9/3/2020

We really like the size, appearance, functions. First unit broke less than a month after we got it. I think it was a faulty switch in the door. The place we bought it gave us another one to replace it. That one is doing great.

Submitted by JFC66 - 8/28/2020

Submitted by PB41 - 8/26/2020

It functions, but is not of the quality we had come to expect from GE appliances. This unit was bought to replace a similar GE microwave that provided years of good service, was larger, and more powerful for approximately the same cost.

Submitted by limenyc - 8/21/2020

I don't know how else to say it, I plugged it in. Gave it the required 3 inch space all around and after using it 4 times the thing just blew. Least to say I found this microwave to be quite disappointing.

Solid Microwave

Submitted by Rkipper - 8/20/2020

I had a GE long ago and strayed but have come back to find they are still rockin it. I did a lot of research and 1200watts came at a great price point with all the features I was looking for. Easy to clean compared to my previous one with a broiler element, believe me when I say never buy one with a top element or you will never keep it clean.

Great microwave

Submitted by Mothiel - 8/19/2020

This microwave cooks quickly. With the 1150 watts, it is the most powerful microwave I have owned. It is very spacious and easy to clean. The stainless steel trim is stylish. I do wish it had an option to silence the beeping. Otherwise this is a fantastic microwave.

Substituted for built in

Submitted by drdave86 - 8/19/2020

We had an expensive Dacor microwave that was built in as part of a kitchen renovation. When that died we didn't feel like paying what complete replacement would cost. By simply moving my faceplate up a little this fit our opening nicely. A bit smaller but quite serviceable and it would have literally been 10 times more expensive to replace the original!

I love the fact that the light comes on when the door is opened and also that you can use the Timer at the same time as the Cook Function. Great size too when using a larger platter or bowl.

Submitted by Essex Grammie - 8/19/2020

Submitted by MichelleMKE - 8/14/2020

This microwave does exactly what we want it to do, without the extra "features" you can live without. Plenty of space inside, so you don't have to worry about your food touching the inside walls. Our food comes out hot every time, without the cold spots. Excellent product, especially for the price.

Submitted by sadenag - 8/13/2020

I had a GE microwave similar to this one, and it lasted for over 10 years. I had no doubt what I would purchase when this one stop working. I would not settle for anything except another GE microwave. I went to 8 different stores for this microwave and could not find one. I am thankful I was able to purchase one from Best Buy. It has a few more excellent features that I didn't have before. I'm counting on this one to last just as long.

3rd time a charm

Submitted by Harryq - 8/12/2020

Brought a new microwave to replace our old Ge microwave that we had for over 10 plus years. Figure Ge did a good job, why not get another. 1st microwave, the power wouldn't shut off. Didn't even press a button to start, just came on and wouldn't stop, unless you unplug it. Returned back to Best Buy. Got the same one, plugged it in and tried it out at the store, it works great. Took home and cooked for 6 mins, and it stopped, think over heated, top of microwave really hot. Until it cooled down unplug and plug in and it worked fine. Seems works ok unless you want to cook over 5 mins. Returned again to store. Brought another one, tried it at store and this time set for 6 mins to see if shut off. Bingo it works. Been over 2 weeks and still fine. Hope it last me another 10 yrs, also brought 4 yrs warranty just in case. So 3rd time a charm.

Frustrating Purchase

Submitted by Ljgdsdfy - 8/12/2020

We replaced our 2.0 cu foot GE microwave, which only lasted about 3 years. We purchased this one as it fit the hole, and are disappointed with the smaller size. Most frustrating are that GE (1) changes the keypad with every model, and (2) changes the measurements so that you need yet another trim kit.
