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.

Excellent Microwave

peter628 3/24/2017

We bought this microwave shortly after buying a new stove. Our old one didn't match the new stove. The two white ice appliances make for a stunning look. It's just as impressive as stainless steel, but much easier to keep clean. The new microwave works great and we love how quiet it is.

Yes, I recommend this product

Love the "ice" look!!

Patticom 3/20/2017

We were unable to see this in person before purchasing, but bought based on online photos. It looks even better in person, and we absolutely love it!! We find the "white ice" to be the perfect compromise between the popular look of stainless steel and the easier cleaning of glossy white (or black, but white works better for our kitchen, keeping it from being too dark). Directions for installation were very clear, and it works very well. Very happy with our purchase!

Full Function Microwave

CW 3/9/2017

Nice full function microwave...it automatically turns on the exhaust when the stove below it gets too warm on the top and needs exhaust! Rack or rotation choice very nice, easy digital controls. Only issue is the lighting. There is only one light under the microwave to shine on your stove top, it needs two, one on each side for more light when you are cooking. Guess I'll have to look for some lights I can mount to get more light on the cooking surface.

This is probably my favorite appliance in my new kitchen so far. It is easy to operate and figure out and I like the add 30 second button that adds time easily if we need food a little hotter.

Love This Microwave

Oklahoma Homemaker 1/14/2017

This microwave is my first built in unit. It's quite a bit larger than the one it replaced. Easy to learn panel. The features signal tones are very pleasant. The sensor heat features are much better than my previous units.

Very quiet, very user friendly, sleek and modern look. Choices are easy to figure out. Only thing lacking is more choices in the beeping. It's on or it's off.

So Far So Good

WJB 12/5/2016

Had to replace am 8 year old microwave and this fit the bill. We have only had it for over a week and are still learning some of the features; One thing missing that was on our previous one is the 1 button time up to three minutes. It is quiet and seem to do the job.

Large capacity, strong exhaust fan.

bass-k 11/21/2016

I bought this to replace a 18 year old similar model. Easy to install. Exhaust fan (vented through wall) is very strong and a little quieter than the old model. Inside is big and easy to clean. I'm not a big fan on the sensor settings, but they do seem to work. Only things I would do different is make the display change color and have the light LED. Otherwise a great unit.

Still learning

KatB 11/21/2016

A four because I have only had two weeks. On a learning curve for using sensor technology, especially with single baked potato. Read the instructions again and must try putting potato at edge of turn table rather than center. Appliance is beautiful and goes well with white appliances. However, I believe it will look great with stainless as well.
