Great Microwave

I was going to wait longer than a month to rate this but I figured I'd go ahead. I read the reviews and almost didn't buy this and that is why I wanted to wait. Some had said it stopped working after 6 months. If this happens to me I will surely come back and post. So far this microwave is working perfectly. It is quiet (some posts stated it was very loud!). It does only beep when the cycle is done and does not give you a reminder. This is not a problem for me, at least not yet it hasn't been. I love the way it looks although I wish it didn't have the black face on the front, it shows dust and is a bit hard to read. I also don't like that it is hard to see inside the window when food is cooking. The buttons aren't as responsive as other ovens I've had, you have to push on them pretty hard. The button to open the door though is easy. These are the reasons I've rated it as good instead of excellent. I'm hoping though, it will last a good long time. Over all I'm pretty happy with it.

Best Buy Review by ooccoo :star::star::star::star::star:

Excellent marriage of price, features, and looks.

This GE model was not what I had intended to buy, but was cheap, stainless steel all around, and unlike nearly every other brand I looked into, features a light that comes on when the door is open, and when on. Granted, you can't see it super well when on, but enough to tell if something's overflowing. The light on when the door is open is important, I think, for cleaning purposes - and it just makes sense.

I also really like the quick start 1-6 minute feature, which is way more useful than I thought it would be, and the presets seem to be pretty accurate for the things I’ve used them for (beverages and potatoes). The unit seems to heat things evenly and fast, and when done, doesn’t have an ear piercingly loud set of beeps and boops. It beeps four or five times when done, and that’s it. It’s also a fairly quiet unit. It buzzes a bit at the start, but throughout its noise is low.

The only niggles are that the top seems to scuff easily (of course, you aren’t supposed to put things on the tops of microwaves…), and you can’t use the kitchen timer feature and use the microwave for cooking at the same time. However, when using the timer, the countdown takes the place of the clock, which is nice.

Overall, for the price, this really is the perfect microwave for my needs. It looks very nice, great size for most applications, cooks fast and evenly, isn’t loud when on, the beeps aren’t obnoxious, the light comes on when open and on, and it’s cheap.

To note, I’ve had the unit for about four months now, and use it daily. No issues to report.
