    Stainless Steel Contertop Microwave - NO!

    Posted
    Scottito

    I purchased this microwave because it is described this way: "Stainless steel casing provides durability and style. The exterior offers an attractive complement to your existing kitchen décor.." I was willing to pay $40 more to get the stainless steel case vs. model # JES1072SHSS which has a stainless steel front and black casing. I received the microwave and the casing is painted gray, has rivets exposed on the top and does not have a flat/finished surface on the sides. Three Best Buy associates couldn't explain the difference in the description and actual appearance, nor why it cost $40 additional. So, I called GE directly. I was told it is intended to be mounted under a cabinet therefore the casing does not have to be finished/flat. They could not explain why it cost $40 more for this version of the microwave versus model # JES1072SHSS which is the same except for the black casing that is smooth and finished on the top and sides. Save your money and buy model # JES1072SHSS if you plan on having a microwave on your counter. "The GE - 0.7 Cu. Ft. Compact Microwave - Stainless steel (Silver)" does not have a stainless steel casing, front only, and is not intended to be used on a counter top.

      Hello Scottito - thank you for providing a review of your new microwave. We are sorry to hear that you were unaware of the differences between microwave Model #JEM3072SHSS and Model #JES1072SHSS. The JEM3072SHSS does offer the option of mounting it under a cabinet using an under-counter-mounting kit so it is designed differently, and thus changes the pricing. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thanks for providing your feedback and for choosing GE Appliances! NANCYatGEA GE_Appliances

    GE Makes Great Quality Small Microwave

    I had to purchase a 0.7 cu ft microwave because that was the only size that would fit on the shelf in the house I moved into. Someone told me to go to another store and just pick up something around $60. Big mistake. All the cheap ones have a door handle that when you try to open it, ends up pulling the whole oven off the shelf. Plus the cheap ones were--cheaply made. Duh. Thinner metal, etc. I had had a GE before, much bigger and it ran like a champ. So I went on Best Buy's website and was ecstatic when I saw they made a small one. I ordered it and it was at the store 2 days later. I love, love, love this microwave. The door opens by pushing a button, so the microwave stays in place. The touch pad options are all familiar from my larger one. Best of all, I can fit a very large dinner plate or a large pyrex bowl in it. Yes, the power is lower than the big ones, but it is no big deal. Thank you, GE for make this small microwave. It is worth every penny I paid for it. "You get what you pay for" has never been truer.

    We purchased this to put into a new pantry. We had a large microwave over the range. When we remodeled we wanted to save that space for a tiled backslash over the new induction cooktop. We mostly cook and only use the microwave to heat up leftovers. This has worked great. The only downside is that we have to clean it once in awhile to remove odors.

    I purchased this microwave to replace my 27 yr. old GE microwave when we re-modeled our kitchen. I was so happy GE still makes an under the cabinet mounted microwave because counter space is at a minimum in my kitchen. This microwave has lots of options and does the job very well.

    It was disappointing. It takes longer.

    I took much longer to heat up food than with this microwave than it did with my old microwave (over ten years old). When I heated the food longer to get it to the right temperature, the food was dried out. The button configuration was also confusing, and the Start button was very hard to activate.

    Small but gets the job done. I use it for reheating and defrosting mostly but also cook vegetables in it. No complaints except that the surface really shows finger prints. You have to damp wipe it and then dry it with a soft cloth daily.

    Heats quickly and evenly. Somewhat cramped inside but fits our space and suits our needs. Lacks some of the pre-sets of the full size microwave. Overall a hit.

    Doesn't take up a lot of counter space. Good power level, easy to use controls, attractive finish.
