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.

Works so far

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.

Shellrey 8/12/2020

Happy to Find a White Microwave

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!

Carol68 8/5/2020

Like the upgrades from my last GE of 10 years. Darker window, 1150 that cooks real fast, all the buttons are easy to read and the door is so much quieter and easy to open.

The unit is easy to operate and to understand its features. It is versatile, accomplishing a variety of cooking options. My family likes the way it operates and performs.

glenn5876 7/23/2020

This replaced a GE model, that had similar features, we purchased in 2006. Wish it had rubber feet, instead of the tiny, push in plastic ones, that wiggle around and slide easily on the counter. Other than that, we're happy with it. Just hope this one lasts as long as the last one.
