Rated 4 out of 5??by from Enjoying My New GE Microwave After having a countertop microwave that went on the fritz, I purchased a GE Stainless Steel Over-the-Range 1.7 cubit foot microwave. I love the convenience of having my new microwave over the range as well as the additional countertop space that I now have for preparing meals. The Express Cook 1-6 buttons are extremely handy for heating up something quick or softening some of my items used for baking. The interior rack may be removed which allows for additional space for larger items such as reheating leftovers. The only drawback that I see with the microwave is the handle. When cooking on the stovetop the stainless steel handle can heat up too much where a pot holder is necessary to open the microwave without burning my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5??by from Just installed. Looks great, and heats quickly. Chose this microwave to replace a comparable older GE microwave. The appearance is better. Double shelves will be useful at times, and the cooking options have increased a lot. The installation crew from GE was professional and efficient. My first comment when they finished was of surprise to see a designated button to prepare potatoes. I know this will get a lot of use. We love baked potatoes.

Rated 4 out of 5??by from Lots of buttons! This microwave is a good choice. My only issue is that when you have a timer counting and something in the microwave and you want to add 30 seconds to your cooking time, it adds the 30 seconds to the timer. Other than that I would highly recommend this product.
