I replaced a 25-year-old microwave with fear and trepidation, as I think today's products are not nearly as well made. So far this product performs fine--but I've had it only three weeks and cannot comment on its longevity. It is twice as powerful as my old microwave, good size capacity, and easy to use, even though it is more complicated. I selected this microwave partly because it has a "turn off turntable" feature for large dishes that don't have room to turn. It has a timer that works when the microwave isn't on, so functions as a separate kitchen timer. And it has a "reheat" feature that automatically reheats leftovers--sometimes a bit too hot. It also has a volume adjustment for the beep, which I appreciate, as I have turned it to the lowest setting. I tend to not use the automatic cooking features, so don't know how well they work. The only thing missing is that my old microwave had a "keep warm" feature, and this one doesn't. I probably could replicate that with the lowest power but haven't tried it yet.

Comments about GE Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
This model microwave was place in our brand new home (only 4 yrs. old) and the inside of the microwave to the back, the panel has separated from the caracole, so the temperature is completely wacked. Since this model has been discontinued I am stuck with trying to replace the microwave within the same size allotted. The microwave is over the oven as a separate unit and we are finding it very difficult to find this size as a replacement.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Within a year control panel had to be replaced under warranty. 1year warranty is now up and having trouble with it again. Never had to go through this with a microwave in the past. Should last longer than a year.
Second GE that RUSTED OUT
from Missouri City, TX, United States
These GE units don't last more than 2 years max before they start rusting out internally. I have had to buy 2 within the last 4 years.

This unit was installed in a home built by DR Horton. Manufactured in 8/2011 and died 9/2013. Not anyone's idea if quality or value.

I love this microwave so far. However, a lot of reviews complained about the short life of this microwave.
Had a JE1860 that died after 8 years. Bought a few different microwaves and was having a hard time finding anything that fit my existing trim kit. Finally found this one and is works great so far.
Stopped working after 17 months.
This microwave looked good and performed as it should, until it just stopped working after a year and a half. While heating water, it just stopped. Techs said the magnetron was faulty and it would cost more to fix it than to replace the whole unit. After researching this model online, many customers were having the same problem. Had to purchase another model.
Bought another for the office !

Just take out of the box, plug in, very easy, large capacity
We've had this microwave for about a month and it has been working great. It heats up quickly and evenly.
