GE Microwaves are available from many appliance retailers, including Lowe's, Home Depot and Best Buy. GE offers countertop, over-the-range, and built-in models. As of February 2015, its microwaves retail for $91 for a small countertop oven to $1,400 for a high-end, over-the-range version.
GE offers a wide range of features in its microwave ovens, including its proprietary Advantium technology which is available for built-in and over-the-range microwaves. In addition to functioning like a traditional microwave, an Advantium oven utilizes light to cook the food up to eight times faster than a standard oven.
A basic microwave oven includes a turntable, express cooking features, auto and timed defrost, and several convenience cooking controls, such as reheat, popcorn and beverage. As the price of the microwave oven increases, so do the size and the features.
Higher-priced microwave ovens typically include features such as sensors that automatically adjust the power and time, weight-based defrost, and additional quick cooking options. For consumers who want more traditional oven features, GE also offers a convection cooking option with some of its models. Over-the-range microwaves are available with and without venting. A vented model moves odors, steam and heat away from the range cooktop to the outside.
