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 has features that we are enjoying like Turntable, Mute off/on. I like the bright panel, easy to see day and night. The price and high 1000w was a significant factor.

Awful Product Experience

Renee 2020 8/30/2020

We enjoyed our new appliance for one year with no problems February 2019 until May 2020. Then it would not heat food. It was repaired May 2020, July2020 and again August 2020. and now we have to purchase another one. I have lost confidence in GE products. this product was installed by a new home build.

It's OK for reheating or cooking a frozen dinner

Jessie 8/12/2020

This is a replacement for a GE Profile microwave which I loved. I thought it was the same with minor changes but it isn't. First problem was that no manual came with the product. I printed out a basic manual from the web site. Does not answer specific questions I had. It does not ding to announce time is up among other things. It's OK but only OK. We were limited due to space as it is in a built in cabinet. Wish the salesman had pointed out changes between this model and our old one.

Dropnroll247 6/22/2020

This came with the house that I bought in April. I was happy that it was one less thing that i had to think about buy when i moved in but it has quickly made a light work of the tasks that i have had for it with little learning curve. It move a generous volume of air as a vent hood but the surface lighting could be better if it had LED strips instead of bulbs.

Home Sweet Microwave Home

Merchantress 5/6/2020

This microwave is so easy to use! The display tells me everything. Clock light too bright? Change at a touch. Not heated long enough? Add 30 seconds. And it fits beautifully in my kitchen, truly makes my kitchen the envy of all my friends, and my male friends are dazzled by it's unique features! We're still painting the kitchen but I couldn't wait to send this image.
