This is a replacement for a GE microwave oven that operated reliably for ten years. All indications are that this oven will do just as well.
We bought this from the retail store in our hometown. It was not plugged in so we did not understand that that features are not backlit. They are barely readable in daylight, but at night, we cannot see what we are pressing without shining a flashlight on the panel. This stinks! I will make my wife happy by finding another brand that has features that are READABLE. That means replacing a brand new unit. We have been loyal GE customers for years, BUT NO MORE.
The microwave oven looks good and has plenty of features for our household. Our prior GE microwave was still going strong after 15 years but we update our kitchen and appliances so it was time for a new one.
The microwave is attractive, dependable and easy to operate! It was also easy to install above the stove ourselves.
I love the self cleaning feature, the melting butter and even cooking the potato by sensor not me having to figure our how long to set the microwave to cook the sweet potato!
We just replaced our GE profile after about 15 years, we are looking to have the same success with this new microwave. Our entire kitchen is GE, fingers crossed may they live long.
We purchased this microwave for two reasons: door latch and over the stove halogen light. Both were great reasons. The microwave has so many features, I haven't yet used them all. Cooking is even, sensors are accurate.
