Summary: I bought this little microwave for my sister, who lives close to me and has a small kitchen.
I can remember paying several hundred Dollars for my first Radarange back in the late 70's and it was huge! I have a GE that doubles as a range hood and in many ways this resembles that unit, only smaller.
As do most of these ovens, this one has electronic buttons for all the functions. This makes greasy handprints, etc., easy to wipe off.
Summary: After much research, I bought the slightly bigger GE Spacemaker microwave that you can attach underneath your kitchen cabinets. It cost nearly $250 after tax on sale at a major retailer. When I got it home, despite having measured carefully, I found that it just didn't look right--it jutted out a bit and seemed too big for the space.
Summary: The microwave works well...but I've taken two back so far because the door opener sticks and the replacement microwave is starting to do the same thing. I usually have something in my hand and try to open the door with the other hand and and I can't because it's stuck.
Summary: Fast shipment. Superior quality for a supposedly used appliance. I don't have a lot of counter space and this microwave is perfect for limited areas yet does an excellent job. My other microwave had a dial that you turn and it was hard to judge cooking times accurately. This microwave has a digital clock and a keypad for easy access to setting accurate cook times. I hadn't even read the owners manual and could figure out how to work it!
Summary: I've had this GE microwave for several years now and am satisfied with its functionality and compact size. It has several feature buttons (reheat, defrost, popcorn, beverage, etc.) that are very handy, and a nice independent timer that will shut off after the first time it sounds. My only complaint is that over time the interior finish on the door has started to wear off and rust, something I haven't noticed with other microwaves I've used.
