Summary: I bought this microwave less than a year ago. Worked fine for reheating and defrosting items, but being a 700 watt microwave, it did take longer to do those things. One day, after ~8 months of use, I placed a cup of coffee to reheat, and it failed to work; power on, lights working, but no luck. Don't waste your money or time.
Summary: Oh my goodness, I can't believe how horrible this microwave is. All this material used to construct something that is just going to clog up the landfill. Here's our story. Back in April of this year (2014) our old microwave died. We needed a replacement right away because that's how our household rolls. I eat popcorn, we microwave veggies.... So, hub and I rushed over to HomeDepot to get a replacement. This GE microwave looked nice. We bought it.
Summary: It's rather clunky/cheap, especially for the price. It is made like a $50 microwave vs. a $100 microwave. I'm giving it a 3 star b/c, it is 'okay', but considering the price & lack of quality, I would rate it more like a 2 star.
Summary: after only a few weeks, the plastic coating over the button panel started to bubble and lift. Now all sections of the panel are getting lumpy and breaking up. Other than that, it works just fine, but I doubt I would buy another GE.
Summary: Okay, the microwave is still being used daily. I don't know if this model is even being made, but Amazon wants a review, and who am I to refuse my god? The inside has begun peeling off, but it's not affecting anything. I have come to hate that it doesn't have a handle, b/c you really have to push the button to open the door. There are no "quickie" shortcut buttons for 1 minute or 3 minutes or anything. Just a 30 seconds more button I forget is there.
Summary: The microwave is fine but the vendor not so much. The microwave was in its original box but clearly was unpacked previously as the protective plastic film was no longer on it. Clearly this item was returned by someone as the door has a "ding", a chip of glass. It works fine. I know I could have sent it back but did not want to deal with all the hassle. So I guess I should not complain....
