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 and 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.

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

Poor Replacement of Prior Model

5/5/2018

I purchased this as a replacement to an earlier GE Cafe over the range microwave which I bought 8 years ago and required two repairs to the LCD control panel. That model must have had an LCD flaw because it broke theee times bad now GE has replaced it with something even worse. Its bad enough that this new model uses cheap plastic components for the door handle and frame original was metal and fake stainless steel vaneer instead of real. The worst thing about it though is how poorly it cooks. The wattage is the same as the prior model but it now takes twice as long to reheat things. It is also horrendous at defrosting things on a lower power setting. The old model worked perfectly on power setting two or three for 30-60 seconds. What you took out wasnt hot it was no longer frozen. With this new model using the same power setting and time for the same food item and the middle is still frozen solid while the outer part is steaming hot. Im very disappointed with this microwave. Dont waste your money. If I didnt already have the Cafe range and oven I would have returned and purchased something else. Instead I get worse quality for more money.

GE Cafe Series Microwave

Peeling Handle

12/17/2017

The quality of the over the range microwave/convection oven is horribly disappointing. You are led to believe the handle is stainless steel when in reality it is plastic wrapped with a paper product. The paper started wrinkling and is now peeling off. Tonight I grabbed the handle and some of the paper fell off into my food on the cooktop below. I am finally disgusted enough to write this review. The paper stickers around my GE cafe free standing gas oven burner controls are now wrinkling. I suppose they will be peeling next. Please evaluate carefully before purchasing.

Handle Peels

GE Cafe Microwave with Convection Oven

10/2/2017

So far the microwave has performed ok but the stainless steel finish looks cheap and the inside of the microwave is hard to clean. The clock doesnt continually display which I dont like since that is the clock I relied on in my kitchen. I also am not particularly fond of the knob control only sets in 15 second increments. Had an older model of this cafe microwave that looked much nicer and I liked it much better until it stopped working after only 6 years. Overall disappointed in GE quality have always purchased GE but may need to rethink that for future purchases.

Easy To Use

9/20/2017

I am very pleased with microwave looks features and functions. I love the chrome inside microwaveI also like the dial feature where you turn dial and you see the cook time increments of 15 30 etc... Its also very quit. No one knows you have anything in the microwave. I havent baked with it yet but an excited to find out convection baking and roasting experience.

Horrible Vent Cover Quality

9/16/2017

Immediately after the microwave was installed we noticed that the vent cover was hanging off... the plastic tabs were both broken. We are on our second vent cover - and today discovered that one of the tabs is broken again I dont understand the issue. Although I see others have had the same experience - unfortunately found these negative reviews after the purchase. We ordered this and the matching range... neither were cheap so we expected better quality... especially with the GE name. Very disappointed in this product.

In wouldnt buy it again

9/16/2017

First let me say this is my first above the range microwave. Its functional and stylish its just not for me. I dont like how every time you cook something whether the fans on or not all of the steam from the range goes up the front of the microwave and you have to clean it every time. The fan strength is good and relatively quiet. I also miss my old countertop microwave because it had more auto cook features. This one has very little auto features. Ive used the convection twice now and it takes a very long time to cook. A pizza was still cold in the middle and very brown on the outside edges. Im sure it will get better with practice.

Handle Peels

9/11/2017

The quality of this microwave is subpar for the price. The microwave handle is plastic with a stainless steel colored sticker covering it. It is peeling after only 2 years of use. The peeling is exacerbated by the handle sitting directly over the most powerful burner on the GE cafe gas stove which it is designed to go with below.

Still more to learn

9/10/2017

This is a very versatile microwave. It serves as an extra oven with the convection feature and has many more options for automatic cooking than most microwaves. It takes a little reading to master all the features but is well worth the time and effort. Nice looking as well. I am very happy with my choice.

Gret Features

This was a replacement for a 9 year old Profile. It has all the same features that I am used to using so it was super easy to get used to. My other one still worked fine but we replaced all our kitchen appliances at once so they would match. I like the new look the Cafe series brings to my kitchen.
