    Features and Simplicity
    Ok, in all fairness, it's premature to write a review that speaks to the longevity or even the overall adequacy of anything with just a day of run time. That said, this is our first new microwave in 13 years and this new GE is quite amazing after only a day's use. The features that stand out are the simplicity of the controls and the ease of use. For what we use a microwave for, this should be a great appliance for many years to come and it fits perfectly into the space in the kitchen cabinets.

            So far so good
            Seems good so far. Control panel is a little bit hard to read because it doesn't stand out and stainless steel finish is very hard to clean fingerprints off

              GE has great appliances!
              This is a great microwave, we love everything about it! It could be a tad quieter in operation though, a little loud there, but functions great!
