Yes, the Start button is a combined Start / + 30 second button. Pressing it once will start the microwave for 30 seconds. Pressing it again during the cooking cycle will add 30 seconds to the remaining time.

Answer: 
No. But the unit is large enough to accommodate any dish that fits within the borders of the circular plate. Any shape or size dish that fits within the plate perimeter will work OK.

1.6 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave Oven in Stainless Steel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 358.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasted 1 year and 4 months We liked the microwave and were happy with the features, etc. But it just stopped heating our food 4 months after the warranty ran out. In the past, I've had microwaves that lasted 10 plus years with no issues. We're really disappointed in this product. I gave it 2 stars because it worked well while it worked. I would not purchase again. I thought GE was a good name and it would be a quality microwave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Microwave Excellent microwave for the price. Lots of power levels, and other bells and whistles! Many of which I have yet to learn, most I'm learning by trial and error...Heats food evenly and quickly though...love the fact that it has the "beeping reminder", to remind you that it has completed cooking! Overall, excellent buy...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Microwave This is a powerful microwave. It was midrange in power of the microwaves at Home Depot. It is much more powerful than the microwave I had before. Like the stainless steel exterior. If you heat something and let the time expire, you have to open and close the door before you can heat it more. Otherwise it gives an error "FOOD". Had a little trouble figuring out how to use the timer. I am glad I did not get the most powerful microwave, this one is plenty. It takes about 1/2 the time my old microwave did to heat the same item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement microwave We had to replace our 22 year old microwave that finally bit the dust. I researched everything possible before we purchased. We opened and closed doors of countless brands and models, checking for sturdiness. There have been reviews of other models whose reviews talked about the door not being aligned, sometimes straight out of the box. This GE seems to be made very well. This model has been around since at least 2012. And while it doesn't have the "inverter" technology of the Panasonic, it does have "Sensor" cooking that is supposed to help it cook more evenly. We don't use ours for much "cooking" but do use it frequently (several times a day) for reheating, melting, defrosting - everyday tasks that need to be simple. I do love the simplicity of this oven. The size is great for our needs and space. Please be sure to measure your space and check it against the dimensions of the product. Can't believe how many reviews of microwaves that state "I didn't realize it was so big!" When they got it home. Hopefully this microwave will give us our money's worth as did our last one.

Works great--the only knock is that you have to print your own user manual and have to print the spanish as well as english as their software would not let me select one only or print just the pages I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works and does what we want from a microwave The good: - one does not need a lot of pressure to activate the buttons - The microwave cavity is large - Like the 30 second button - Like having to only touch 1 - 9 to start the microwave without having to hit a start button The bad: - Have not found any use for the preset buttons, either overcooked items or undercooked items - light in the microwave cavity dimmer than our previous microwave - picks up fingerprints easily - door does not stay open

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this microwave! We had to replace a 10 year microwave and this one was the same size and was relatively inexpensive. I would have given it 5 stars but it took some experimentation to figure out how the controls worked. The microwave itself is 5 star, the accompanying documentation is only 2 stars. I wonder if it was written by someone whose primary language is not English!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Like all the features it has on, especially the 30 second time button.
