You can't find a better microwave. Its amazingly cute and will add decor to your apartment, small but more powerful than most larger microwave, durable and is made to last for years and the price is great too. Hopefully my review will help you.
*Ships well packed to prevent damage.
*Light weight and small so it's easy to move around and doesn't take up loads of counter top space.
*I've had it for about 3 months and it heats food warmly and evenly so far.
*Cannot see the timer count unless you're in complete darkness. Seriously, even with lights dimmed I cannot see the read out. Cupping both hands over it doesn't work, if it's day light closing the curtains and turning out the kitchen light doesn't work. Because of this I haven't been able to use the custom timer, I'm only able to use the preset buttons, such as potato, popcorn, beverage, etc.
*Weirdly after a preset timer is finished you can't just push the button and start it again, you have to open the door, shut it again and then push the preset timer button to get it started again.
*Because of the heavy, gauzelike coating to the window you can't see into the machine to see if something is boiling over. Perhaps this is some kind of safety coating to prevent microwaves from escaping the unit. I don't know but it prevents seeing into the oven.
*The door only opens 90 degrees making it difficult to put food in or take it out. The door also tends to close further complicating loading the oven.
UPDATE 7-25-12: Six months later this microwave is still heating well. Though it's small I haven't yet found a microwaveable container I own that doesn't fit into it.
UPDATE 2-15-13: It's been a little over a year since I started using this microwave. I've noticed it's taking longer to heat. What used to take 2 minutes to heat now takes 3 minutes, what used to take 4 minutes now takes 6, etc.
Besides the short lifespan mine experienced, there are a couple bugs that I found very frustrating. For example, it is impossible to cancel a cooking timer once it's been set. If I accidentally enter the wrong amount of time, I have to unplug the microwave (and thus reset the clock) in order to enter the correct amount of time.
As more of a minor point, the user interface is also a bit non-standard, and I always have to show my guests how to work the device. While most home microwaves allow you to simply enter the amount of time that you'd like to cook the food before pressing start, this microwave requires you to hit the "Time Cook" button first. Setting a timer is done differently; after pressing the timer button and entering the time, the start button won't start the timer...Read more ›
It works fine it is just un cleanable and looks bad on the inside.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the door and found, instead of the bright white interior as before, something that looked like a nearly-dead flashlight was stuck way behind the grill, barely lighting up half of it. In short, they stiffed us with a bulb so dim you wonder why they even put a window in the door. Serious. I put a glass of water in to boil it and I could not only not tell if it was boiling or not, but I had a hard time even telling if there was a glass in there.
Compared to the earlier model, it’s also louder, and the button to open the door is smaller and deeper, so you really have to press hard to get it to open the door. Everything they changed about it made it worse.
I was hoping I could simply replace the bulb myself, and wrote to GE to find out. They wrote back that you can’t replace the bulb, and don’t try, and then a full paragraph about how one should be careful of handling hot liquids. Serious. And oh yeah, “It has gotten great reviews.”
So their “support” is simply to tell me to enjoy this terrific microwave that won’t even let me see what I’m cooking.
I returned the GE and got a Kenmore 69122. It’s quieter, the door is much easier to open, and the light is bright, allowing me to easily tell if the water is boiling, if the cheese on the pizza has melted, and how much GE really cares about their products.
