Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

52Red 9/2/2020

When our previously reliable microwave failed after 10 years, we hoped to find one comparable. Instead we found one of the same size externally, but with larger cooking compartment, more features and virtually the same price as the oven it replaced. A pleasant surprise in this day and age!

I replaced my GE microwave that I had for over 10 years. Same size and features as my old one. Only drawback is the door is so blacked out its hard to see the food cooking. I hope this one lasts as long as the first one.

sharlea 8/27/2020

My last GE microwave oven was over 15 years old and just stopped working. This was my first choice because of reliability and also color (white) of the cabinet. It heats up really fast and is quieter than my previous one.

OH lady 8/26/2020

For the most part it works ok. Inside light is way too dim. Defrost based on weight for .2 lbs comes up as almost 2 minutes when my old one for the same weight would be about 23 seconds. Have to press hard on the controls. I would not buy again and if it wasn't for the pandemic I would have returned it.

Pat the bee guy 8/26/2020

The unit has plenty of power and the controls are easy to use and understand. A nice surprise was that the timer continues to operate if the oven is used while it's running. I never understood why that wasn't a feature on microwave ovens from day one.

Robenglish 8/19/2020

As a whole the controls and features are good, but the door glass gets moisture in it and it expands just enough that it will stick and not oper without pulling on it. Hope to take it back for refund and see if someone has another in stock.

21Butch 8/14/2020

This to replace a GE bigger version in which the microwave would just turn on by itself as if a ghost is running it. It might have been something loose in the door mechanism. The door on JES1657DMWW seems to be more solid. It was also big enough for our needs. It's a little noisy at first when it turns on, but other than that it's been working out great. I do like the add 30 second and one touch menu buttons.

Grizelda 8/10/2020

We really needed a white countertop microwave to go with the white kitchen in the home we recently bought, and this unit met that need and also had the size and intuitive controls that we are used to from other GE microwaves we have used. It's a keeper!

Barbone 8/6/2020

My old microwave gave up the ghost and we were looking for a new one. This microwave was highly rated and we found it at a good price at Lowes. Bought it and it works great! Our old microwave was 1000 watts and this one is 1150, and it is faster in heating things and has just the functions we need. Thanks for a great product!
