Product Description Product Description
With its spacious 1-2/5-cubic-foot capacity, this family-size microwave oven offers an exceptionally convenient way to keep up with a busy household. The unit's large 14-1/8-inch Carousel turntable can accommodate a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish, while its user-friendly control panel and seven-digit, two-color, lighted display with word prompts ensure easy programming. Nine Sensor Cook settings make it possible to cook popular microwave foods with the simple press of a button--it adjusts the time and power level automatically. Choose from baked potatoes, popcorn, fresh vegetables, ground meat, rice, fish/seafood, frozen entrees, chicken breast, and frozen vegetables. It also offers three one-touch sensor reheat options: fresh rolls/muffins, frozen rolls/muffins, and beverage, as well as four defrost options: ground meat, steaks/chops, boneless poultry, and bone-in poultry. The countertop appliance also provides a hot-water button--great for making a cup of tea, and Keep Warm Plus, which keeps hot foods hot up to 30 minutes at the end of the cooking cycle--without over-cooking. Other highlights include 11 power levels, four programmable stages, a clock and timer, demonstration mode, and a safety lock. The 1100-watt microwave oven measures 17-1/2 by 21-5/8 by 12-3/8 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Feedback & Comments

October 4, 2012
This oven is generally working well. It does a great job of reheating with the auto sensor functions. The defrosting function also works well. On the negative, the functions have some weird idiosyncrasies. If you have the reminder beep function enabled (which I'm glad to finally have in a microwave) if you use the timer, once the timer runs out, it continues to reminder beep after the timer has expired. The only way to clear the reminder is to open the oven door. This is ridiculous!! We often like to use the timer for miscellaneous household uses. To have to return to the kitchen to open the oven door and cancel the reminder beep (every 15 seconds no less) is a stupid oversight someone should have caught in programming. The first oven we received, by the way, had a defective blower and had to be returned. It took us several weeks to get a properly operating unit. So far it works reasonably well, but it seems they still have some bugs to work out. From a boots on the ground perspective, it works well, but a good quality GE product should not have goofy problems we have experienced.
