Summary: We first chose it because of its size. It fit perfectly in the spot we wanted to place it. We are very pleased, for its size, with its cooking ability. We will wait and see how it functions over the long haul.
Summary: It completely died 3 months after purchase. Suddenly no power, nothing. My model number was a JES145DSBB but it is exact same thing as this, GE just changes the number on it, maybe due to bad reviews. Worked good prior to dying.
Summary: This was a replacement for a discontinued GE microwave; there was a slight difference in the way the preset buttons work... BETTER than the previous model. Until the model it replaced stopped working, we were very satisfied with it; now we don't miss it at all!
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Clean, Easy To Install, Heats Evenly, Powerful, Simple Controls, Simple Display
Summary: If a company makes a poor quality product, they should at least be prepared by having good customer support--on which, unfortunately, GE fails drastically. I purchased this product to replace a Kenmore microwave oven from 1987 that was still in working condition, but I was concerned about the quality of the casing and what may have been considered "safe" levels of radiation twenty-some years ago.
Summary: This is a great microwave for the price. There is a lot of room inside, enough for an average dinner plate, but the counter space is minimal. The express feature for heating one minute by pushing "1," two minutes by pushing "2," etc., is very useful. The reheat is also excellent. The only complaint I have yet is that the controls are a little hard to read. Greater contrast with the background would be useful.
Summary: I first saw this microwave at a client's office. I was impressed with the way in which it evenly heats food. No more frozen entrees that only cook at the outer edges leaving the middle half frozen. Easy to use. Great value.
Summary: the workhorse of our house. we use it from early morning to late night. makes popcorn perfectly on it's 2 minute cycle. i cook a nice size salmon with onions at 6 minutes. tastes like restaurant quality. low noise. interior light . which some microwaves are now not including in some models.
