Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mosey It's the little things that count
Used mostly for small meals & warm-ups.
1. Nice attractive piano black finish. Picks up a few finger prints but easy to wipe off.
2. Just push the "popcorn" button and you'll get a completely full bag. Almost every kernal pops. No timing necessary.
3. Just push the "potato" button for perfect baked potato's. Works great even with several different sized potatoes.
4. Here's the really great part: In our old Panasonic, heating soup, veggies, and most other stuff required keeping
the top covered to prevent stuff popping all over the oven. Even then it required frequent cleaning. We have now had
the oven over 5 months and have NEVER had to clean it. It still looks brand new inside. Not a spot anywhere.
1. The door seems a little flimsy and needs to be closed from the bottom. Pushing from the top feels like the door is
bending when closing.
2. As with all electronics, the touchpad takes a little getting used to. The "Start" is included among other buttons.
I still have to read it to get the right button.
1. The touchpad requires good contact. Not much chance of accidental programing. I've grown to like it.
2. 1200 watts so it cooks fast.
3. 2.0 cubic feet so it's big. Measure counter space.
Extremely happy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RodFam00 Huge microwave, great price
Our family moved over the summer '09 and the appliances in the new place were black, so we needed a microwave to match. We shopped a few different retailers, but found the best 'bang for our buck' at The Home Depot with this GE countertop unit. It is HUGE inside, with plenty of room to warm the food, which is important to us since we have 14" square dinner plates that we often eat our meals on. The control panel is very simple to use, almost idiot-proof. The 1200 watts of power provides fast and conveinent cooking, and the sensor technology prevents our food from being over-cooked. You will NOT be disappointed with this microwave! I have recommended it to a few of my friends and family members, some of whom have followed my advice and have had similar results. Great buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CentralCalGal Great Microwave
Our microwave recently gave up after 33 years. It was still working well and such an easy microwave to use that no one wanted to get rid of it. Well, needless to say, it stopped and we purchased this GE. We love it! It's easy to operate and heats up so much faster than our last one! The inside back is rounded making clean-up fast and easy too. Overall, we are very pleased with our purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by popeye46 excellent purchase
product is better than expected and the price is outstanding compared to other stores our old work tried to electrocute our food (guess it wasn't happy any more after 17 years) so we looked on line for recommendations and this is one of the better ones and home depot had the best price by far. and they took away the old one for us..........GREAT

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alice Replacing with the same Microwave
I bought Model JES2051 DNBB on 12-07-09 for $149,00 plus tax(black) from Home Depot. Two days ago it broke on 7-7-15. Electrical problem, we think by the burning smell.
I was disappointed that it only lasted 6 years with a 1 year warranty.
Home Depot now has the exact model for more $$.
I do love the size and features of this model.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 2bad GE Microwaves are disposable items
Unit has good features, fast cooking, etc. However this is our third GE Microwave and they don"t last through the second year. This last one worked 16 months when it quit heating. I keep buying them for the features and price, but consider them throw away, disposable items. They are typical of the new GE quality. Divide your cost by 2, and decide if the features are worth that much per year.
