    Pipe burst in our kitchen and we were forced to set up an alternative kitchen on our 3rd floor during repairs. This microwave is perfect for us to use now and along with a coffeemaker, will be perfect for our guests staying in the 3rd floor afterward. We put it through heavy use and it stood strong. I thought it would be small, but it’s a good size inside.

    This is the fourth time that I've had to buy a microwave. This one is by far the best. The beeps are not annoying. The blue light is not overwhelming. The key pad is easy to understand and to use. Heating is uniform and defrosting is easy peasy. Stop looking and reading reviews. Buy this microwave!

    Our house hold is very HAPPY that I purchased the very easy to use and large space that it has to heat up large portion's of food for two growing boys 9 & 10 now and our college princesses but most of all Dad n Mon love the easy and fast cleaning surface. We love GE we have a refrigerator that I purchased in 2000 and it’s still going strong 23 years later

    This microwave doesn’t look or feel small, but it’s small enough to fit in my small kitchen. Love it. Works very well. The light comes on when food is heating. When you press the button, the door pops open well. Be sure to take off all the protective plastic—it’s on there like a glove inside and out.

    I like the color I thought it might be a little more powerful. I find that I have to heat my food and tea just a little longer than I did in my old microwave but it works & I may just be impatient and may also need to read the manual lol I just put my food in and press start & wait like a hungry savage...

    The GE 1.1 cubic foot 950 Watt is a welcome addition to my kitchen. The price on sale was favorable and the unit arrived without issues. This replaced a 15 year old product that still worked but the door function just froze up. This unit has the same door mechanism and I hope it will last as long as my old Avanti model. The unit is working as it should for my uses; boiling water, reheating leftovers and steaming frozen vegetables. I very much like the safety feature of not heating until you have "Food" inside. This unit is larger than my previous one and I'm learning the new necessary heating times. I agree with others that the control pad needs to be easier to read. My one negative is the microwave has one leg shorter than the other three causing it to rock up and down. I deducted a star for this annoyance. I put a placemat underneath solving the issue. While there unit looks solid it is a bit rickety, but I don't think it'll fall apart on me. It's very good for me and my lite usage. Not sure if it will last for heavy duty use. I'm happy with my purchase.

    This was a Christmas gift for my my elderly mother since she had bren without a microwave for several months and couldnt afford one. I went to visit her a few weeks after giving it to her to find out the microwave received was not the black/silver one i had ordered. The box shows the right color but the item itself was an greenish aqua kind of color. At this point and given the fact that she's been using it I didn't bother going thru the hassle of returning it. I was very dissapointed they shipped the wrong item

    I got this microwave to replace another microwave that started having problems. I don't really cook with with a microwave oven, but these days a microwave is necessary for heating up stuff. This microwave was the perfect replacement.

    We bought the exact same GE Microwave Model JES1145SHSS five years ago and it started to cut out power. We loved it so much and use it everyday for heating water, vegetables and leftovers. The new one is just as easy to use, not to big and works good. Only complaint is they still have not made the button labels brighter or backlit. Love the interior light that turns on during operation and when the door opens. This feature is missing on many other manufacturers. The price is amazing for the features.

    Replaced a much much older unit that couldn’t even cook microwave popcorn anymore. This model is very deep and large glass turntable. The best features are the way the preset buttons are setup. For example, if you want to Cooke a potato, just press the potato button for however many potatoes you want to cook 1-3. Look great. Easy to use
