Be cautious, not getting a higher end microwave
Comments about GE Cafe 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Stainless Steel:
We have had the microwave for a bit over a year and the handle (plastic with chrome color) covering is flaking off. For a higher end microwave the handle is made poorly and is cheap plastic.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We bought the entire CafÃ© series for our kitchen several months ago. The microwave is a solid appliance. We haven't had any issues or complaints.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
compact as we needed it
from NY, United States
Thius was oen of eth only microwaves that would fit above our stove without harming our backspach. The only problem I see with it is teh handle. it is plastic and although we have not experienced any melting problems we would have preferreda metal handle as it is over the stove.

like everything about it, wish the light underneath was more forward, it shines on the back of the stove needs to shine towards the front more

I bought this microwave to match the oven. I do not do much cooking in it, more reheating. I am disappointed that the microwave gets warm when I use the burners on the stove. Maybe it needs more insulation.
Do not buy!

Paid premium for this microwave, but the quality of build materials super cheap. Microwave installed 20" above the range and after 2 month the plastic handle covered by foil just pilled off make this microwave worth not more than $20. Yes it will be replaced by warranty no problem with the same foiled cheap plastic handle. I hope one day GE will review their product quality.
Great features but has design problems
from Garden City, NY, United States
Love the cooking features of this microwave just not the design of the door handle. After one month the metal coating on the handle started to peel off due to the heat from the burner below. I called GE and the service man came and replaced the door. He said this has been an on-going problem and it will probably happen again. As long as I have a warranty I will keep replacing it. For such an expensive product it is very cheaply made.

The touch screen on our last microwave did not work, so we needed to purchase a new microwave that went with our other GE cafe appliances. While this microwave was very pricey, it is remarkable. I was unsure about the dial on the touch pad, but the time it allows you to put on it seems to be perfect for whatever you are doing. The microwave heats more evenly than any other microwave I have used.
FINE LOOKING TECH INNOVATION
from Pittsburg, CA, United States
I am very satisfied with the very user friendly features. This micro makes my cooking experience much simpler and faster, and it makes my kitchen look amaizingly modern!
I bought this is in August and I always wanted a combination convection/microwave. It did not come with a cookbook and I still haven't used the convection oven yet. It also does time cook in 15 second increments If I wanted 25 seconds I would not be able to put that in. I would have to do 30 seconds and take item out 5 seconds early. That means I would have to stay by the microwave to stop oven 5 seconds early. This can be a real pain.
