This replaced a 16 year-old GE Spacemaker. So far, I like it a lot. There are some things that are similar to the old one, some better and some new. The timer which operates separate from the the microwave is a great feature that I've always liked. Express Cook is another nice feature the same as the old one. The vent fan has 4 speeds rather an 2 like my old one, which is nice. Defrost has settings for both weight and time--the old one had only weight (unless I never could find time on it). New things: Add 30 seconds is nice, Soften is very nice--It's great for softening butter, before, using just the regular controls, it would start to melt--can't wait to use it for hard ice cream! Finally, believe it or not, the old one didn't have a turntable like this one does. I cook a lot of veggies in the microwave but haven't tried the Steam button yet--am not sure if you need a special microwave veggie steamer for it to work right, will have to try it,

Purchased in June 2014. Unable to install until September 2014. This whole process took two days because of the need to re-drill multiple times because the template was wrong.We planned to vent up outside through the roof as with our old GE micro. So I read the install instructions - (A) Outside Top Exhaust (vertical duct) had NO instructions that the blower motor direction needed to be changed so I installed the damper as instructed, then we installed the micro and connected the exhaust to the duct work. Only Install instructions for (B)Back Exhaust and (C) Recirculating showed instructions on how to change the blower motor direction. Finally I thought we were done - imagine my horror when I turned on the vent and it blew INTO my kitchen, NOT up out the duct work!!!. No where in the instructions are we told to test the direction of the blower and my model number was NOT indicated for specific shipping assembly - JNM7196SF1SS. I do not have the energy or ability to go through taking down this thing again to move the blower motor so unhappily I installed the carbon filter. Now I have exhaust into my kitchen which is NOT what I want. Because of this I cannot recommend the product.

Love it Love it -- cooks perfectly every time
from Elverson, PA, United States
During our kitchen reno we selected this GE microwave because of its functions, ratings and price. Works perfectly and cooks the food to perfection each and every time. LOVE the "soften" function.

This product came with the new house we bought and we are happy with it.
Overall, very happy.
from Waltham, MA
Purchased this microwave to replace a GE microwave that was working perfectly fine, only because we wanted to match the other stainless steel appliances. My only negative point would be that the exhaust fan is fairly loud.
I love this microwave! I bought it because it matched my GE dishwasher but it has great features and I absolutely love the look of it. I especially love the night lite feature. I set it to come on around dark and to go off a few hours later after we are settled in for the night. Who thinks of these things! :-)
Nice microwave, but don't buy it for the fan
from Milwaukee, WI
I have some mixed feelings about this microwave. It heats up a couple cups of water a minute faster than my old microwave. The controls are well laid out and easy to use. The separate buttons at the bottom for the light, fan, and timer are very easy to identify and press. Cleaning is nice. There is no lip on the inside and there are channels that "flow" toward the door which means cleanup by running a sponge through is relatively easy. What I do not like at all is the exhaust fan. It is loud, and yet it has mediocre effectiveness even though this vents to the outdoors. I expected much more for something rated at 400 CFM. I even had a technician check it, and he said it was working as expected. If you are serious about getting the smoke/smells out, consider a dedicated hood fan instead. Finally, I found that when boiling water on the range below, the vapor covered the door of the microwave. Very annoying. I recommend a product I found online (I have no connection to the company) called the Microvisor that acts like a hood vent that attaches to the bottom of the microwave. I could not find anything like it, and am surprised the major manufacturers aren't making these. After installation, the vapor no longer condenses on the front of the microwave.
