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.

GE great brand choice

Luckeyjude 5/13/2020

22 years ago we bought the house were are in, it was 1 year old and all appliances were GE I have the same appliances today that were here when we bought it, two weeks after moving in the microwave we had died so I bought a GE. Tens years later it died so we got another GE and just last month after a 12 year run with that one we had to replace it so of course we bought another GE and love it.

Grassypond 5/12/2020

The Microwave works well. The control letterning is too small for us to read at our age. If it was larger this would be an excellent machine.This was the only microwave that was white in color and that's what we wanted without traveling 50 mile round trip.

JandJ2020 5/12/2020

This model is replacing a very simular model we have had for 13 years. I was in a custome built cabinate so it had to be almost the same size. It was exactly what we needed and love the new style compared to the other one. Very very quite also. Didn't think it was working the first time we used it.

RURAL AMERICAN 5/10/2020

WE FOUND THAT THIS MICROWAVE WAS EASY TO UNPACK AND INSTALL ON OUR COUNTER TOP + IT IS VERY SPACIOUS INSIDE AND EASY TO USE. WE LOVE THE WHITE COLOR. THANK GOODNESS LOWES HAD IT IN STOCK! IT WAS VERY AFFORDABLE AT $130 OR JUST $10.84 A MONTH FOR 12 MONTHS! THE ONLY THING THAT COULD HAVE MADE THIS PURCHASE BETTER WOULD HAVE BEEN IF IT HAD BEEN MADE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND NOT SOME OTHER COUNTRY, ALONG WITH FREE DELIVERY + SET UP & HAUL AWAY OF OUR OLD UNIT.

cuf000 5/4/2020

This is replacing a 27 year old microwave that I bought new. So keep that in mind when you read this. This was bought at lowes. It was a good price made better with a veterans discount making it better. The downside to this unit is like all new ones it seems, the inside got smaller and the outside got bigger. The button pad concerns me a little, but time will tell if it cracks or not. It works very well, and I'm interested to try the new functions that my older one didn't have.

JacqueM 4/29/2020

I bought this microwave to replace a similar Panasonic product that quit after less than a year of use and found that no service is available without shipping the whole thing to Texas. I've had a GE refrigerator & a GE freezer for years and have had good service from both so I decided to try a GE microwave for the first time. So far, it has worked well. My only complaint is that some of the controls are unusual & not intuitive in the way they work. It took some time to get used to them.

Dead Way Too Soon.

ElkGnuToyD 4/29/2020

Nice features. But unfortunately, bought on 23 March 2020, it died on 25 April 2020. It was good under normal usage with timed cooking at set power levels and Express Cook with set power levels until it wasn't. Did not use Sensor Cooking. It was not one of the features I needed. Have two other GE Appliances: electric stove JBS07m1ww and top loading washer GTW460ASJ0WW. Disappointed.

Meets our needs for a microwave oven

Peachoid I85 4/27/2020

I wish it had a more detail instructions on how long to cook foods. We had a 700 watt and got use to how long foods are cooked. This is almost doubled and its hard to readjust to higher wattage. Cooks very fast. We use it very little but so far we are not sure on some things. It came with very little instructions on cooking. It works well but still can't see how to cut it off quickly without opening the door. The outside letterning is too small.
