Reviews around alexa skill (5.00 of 5)

  • I've resolved the issue - a new Alexa Skill was released named "U+ Connect" & now it works great!Original
  • I did get confused when I tried to enable the Alexa skill because the one for GE appliances is NOT the one you want
  • Well, as bad as the installation instructions were, as bad as placing the network label not where the instructions said they should be, as bad as the small sized font on the network label, as bad as the whole experience was with 'offline' right after installation... this is super cool with the Alexa skill actually working

Reviews around feature (5.00 of 5)

  • Another nice feature is that she repeats the cooking time when the oven starts, just in case she misunderstood you and has programmed the wrong cooking time
  • I haven't tried the scan to cook bar code yet, but it looks like a great feature
  • Granted, it's not as useful as such features on an air conditioner or light switch (how often do you need to use voice commands in cooking?

Reviews around food (5.00 of 5)

  • The microwave cooks food really well and has plenty of power for anything I'll cook
  • Now my one star review is this: If you advertise that your microwave can simply scan a product barcode and know how to cook it, I'd suggest making sure the MOST common microwavable foods available are in your database
  • The turntable works, the door opens, the touch panel works, the light works, the food gets hot

Reviews around home (5.00 of 5)

  • I'm impressed with the Smart Home functions of this microwave
  • The product manual that came with is pretty crappy, the sort that is generic for a bunch of microwaves, some that are and some that aren't "smart home" devices
  • If you are an early adopter of smart home appliances you'll probably really enjoy this.

Reviews around ability (5.00 of 5)

  • Really am enjoying the ability to use Alexa voice control and mobile app.
  • "For how long?"Me: "Two minutes"Alexa: "Hmmm, I'm not sure what went wrong."Otherwise:1) as standard microwave, it works fine2) as a microwave that can be controlled by a phone App, it works fine3) as a microwave than can scan barcodes (via the phone App), it works fineHowever, for me, the main selling point was its ability to connect to / accept commands from Alexa & that doesn't work, at all

Reviews around wifi (5.00 of 5)

  • The Wifi, phone app, and Alexa skills are goofy fun, but none of it seems quite ready for prime time to me
  • The wifi is great and you can have Alexa set your cooking options

Reviews around customer support (5.00 of 5)

  • The app would walk me through the steps only to leave me waiting and waiting and wait and then time out with a message to call a customer support number
  • The customer support rep was friendly enough and we eventually got around to getting the microwave to connect to my home network

Reviews around thing (3.61 of 5)

  • This enables basic things like adding 30 seconds to the timer (possibly multiple times, for more time), and the scanning technology
  • The method for connecting this damned thing to wifi is one of the strangest I've seen yet, and it certainly didn't work
  • There is one important thing to note about this microwave
  • However, the cool thing is that you can set this up with Alexa to use voice control to cook or heat your food.

Reviews around device (3.61 of 5)

  • After that, it was useless as a smart device
  • The product manual that came with is pretty crappy, the sort that is generic for a bunch of microwaves, some that are and some that aren't "smart home" devices
  • After that, it was useless as a smart device
  • I have lot of smart devices in my home, Several NEST devices, wireless door lock and doorbell etc

Reviews around app (3.37 of 5)

  • I tried to scan app with my phone on a couple of frozen dinners and that too worked great
  • When it came time to "remove product, stir, and replace product back in microwave", the app seemed to lose track of where it
  • Also, the app crashes on a fairly regular basis.
  • The App is constantly crashing
  • Getting your phone settings right and downloading the right app (Kitchen) took a little time
  • Read remaining 9 reviews for app

Reviews around setup (3.22 of 5)

  • Setup for that was fairly easy
  • The bad: Setup works but it's confusing
  • This setup is especially good for older people, or those with vision problems, as you don't need to see the display, or the buttons, on the microwave to use it
  • The bad: Setup works but it's confusing
  • The initial setup was a little frustrating.

Reviews around password (1.00 of 5)

  • As in, they gave me the wrong password, or it's not making the query correctly
  • Next, the font size is so small even with my reading glasses I had trouble reading the password
  • Because after downloading the GE app, and entering all the pertinent information, and connecting to the microwave on my phone, the app tries to connect to the microwave and then comes back saying the password they provided to me on the sticker in the microwave-- which I typed correctly over a dozen times-- is wrong
  • The picture the app shows me for where to get the password off the microwave was wrong, but I still managed to find it
