Comment:
It fits under a cabinet. We designed the kitchen for this kind of microwave. After 20 years the lining started to flake on our original one. This one has fewer features than the previous model, but does all we need it for. We rarely cook meals in it. We reheat, defrost, heat frozen veggies & pop corn. If it quit tomorrow I'd go buy another one! It does have a tinny sound when closing the door.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Quit after 3 years

Best Uses
Comment:
Used it daily, mostly defrost and reheat. It worked OK until it quit after 3 years. Had just replaced flimsy roller guide for $42. But 3 years may be best one can expect these days for foreign built stuff. Hard to know what to replace it with.

interior rust

Cons
Carousel Broke
Interior Rusted
Unreliable
Unstable Tray
Best Uses
Comment:
Used primarily for reheating. Interior rust formed on the door within two years. GE offered a free new door, but we would pay labor of more than $100. Customer service rep stated that interior rust is not covered by the warranty in any event. She stated it was an appearance issue--not functional.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
