Summary: Works great.. and really great size for cooking multiple items. easy to use without a lot of fancy buttons. I recommend this to others. But be sure of the size as this is a very large over the stove microwave.
Summary: I purchased this Micro/Hood as part of a rental kitchen appliance upgrade. I thought I was buying a middle grade product. I was disappointed with the unit for the following reasons: 1- They made the device about 3/4" taller than the GE Microwave I was replacing so the tile backsplash needed to be cut. This was accomplished using a diamond saw but standardizing these oven/hoods would eliminate this consequence.
Summary: Though it doesn't "run" particularly quietly, I'm quite pleased with how quiet the "beeping" is. Everything in our kitchen seems to beep terribly loudly -- no idea why this industry trend exists... maybe part of some otolaryngologist conspiracy.I tend to be awake while the rest of the household is in bed, so being able to use it without anyone noticing is a nice benefit. Installation is a pain, but it's an OtR microwave... not manufacturer's fault.
