Love the black slate. Might get a fridge in black slate too. I could microwave multiple items at the same time. The 1.9 cu feet makes the difference. Although the black slate is easy to clean, the big sreen door and the side panel are not.
Color is black not like the dark slate with stainl

We needed to replace our microwave and we were trying to match our stove (GE)...closest we could find was this microwave, and I was a little worried about the color matching...it says black (w/stainless) but the picture made it look more like a dark slate gray. I was so relieved once it was installed to see it was actually a perfect match (black) to our stove, and not the dark slate that appeared in the picture. Simple buttons-handful of specific buttons (popcorn, melt, etc), express times, but really all that’s needed unless you’re a gourmet microwave chef. Inside gray flecked enamel was a big plus over the white inside of our last microwave that started peeling within the 1st 2 years, and foresee it not showing every little thing like the last one that became my nemesis...a good weekly cleaning should suffice instead of a daily cleaning.
Look at the pictures...
I regretfully purchased this GE over the range microwave to match two of the other recent GE appliances I purchased for our kitchen (Range and Dishwasher). My perception of GE has always been that it is a high quality brand but this microwave does not live up to that expectation and now my perception has changed.
The quality from the factory is not what I expected. I went to install this yesterday and opened the box and the "stainless steel" finishing plate on the door is out of alignment and it makes the door look like it is bent or crooked.
If something this obvious left the factory it makes you wonder what else they missed. There must be absolutely no quality control for this to have passed. I didn't even have to take it out of the box or remove any of the plastic and I could see the flaw. Notice the attached pictures with the appliance still in the box.
Don't buy this. Even if its cheap or on sale. The problem is if you buy it you'll have to drill a bunch of new holes to install it and then when it fails you'll have yet another set of range install holes in your studs / walls to worry about for the next microwave you buy.
This is a very nice microwave but I gave it only one star with the hope you read this and don't go to all the trouble like I did to install it only to find out the door won't swing open. Let me explain ... if you have a cabinet configuration like I have (see photo) where the cabinet on the door-hinged side of the microwave is deeper than the standard upper cabinet depth (in my case to accommodate a double oven), DON'T BUY THIS MICROWAVE! Once installed, the door will only open a few inches!! Due to the design of this door and its hinge, when the door swings open the left side of it "swings out" so to speak and hits the cabinet almost immediately. My old GE microwave was not an issue because the hinge was designed such that when the door opens, it does not increase the overall width of the microwave and hence doesn't come in contact with the side of the cabinet whatsoever. ONLY BUY THIS MICROWAVE IF YOU HAVE A NORMAL-DEPTH UPPER CABINET ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE MICROWAVE DOOR HINGE.
Hello SeffT - Thank you for sharing your experience with our microwave. We're sorry to hear the unit did not work with your configuration of cabinets. The model JVM7195SKSS is meant to be installed into 13" depth cabinets. Should you have 15" cabinets instead, this microwave can still be used, but will need to be installed with the bump out kit JX15BUMPWW/BB. Please let us know if you have any more questions. - John@GEAppliances

A:AnswerHi Max - We certainly appreciate your loyalty! Some microwaves had the marketing name XL1800 printed on the control panel which indicated the cavity size (1.8 cubic feet- XL1800: JVM1840, JVM1841, JVM1842, JVM1850, JVM1851, JVM1860, JVM1861, JVM1870, JVM1871). All GE 30" over-the-range microwaves are approximately the same width, and are designed to fit into a 30" wide cabinet opening. Therefore, any of our 30" over-the-range models will work as a replacement for your existing 30" over-the-range XL 1800 model. Comparable models are GE Profile™ 2.1 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Sensor Microwave Oven Model #:PVM9215SKSS and
GE® 1.9 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Sensor Microwave Oven
Model #: JVM7195SKSS. Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com. Sue
