I was looking to get rid of my huge counter top microwave. I have a average sized kitchen and could use more counter space. I am a mom on the go. I use my microwave several times a day, everyday. This one is beautiful! I looked and researched a lot of microwaves. This is the only one that not only had the heigh and width that I needed but also had the depth. It sits back on my counter top and gave me tons of room. The cooking time has only increased by a few seconds. No big deal. Has nice feature buttons. Fits a full size plate, no problem! I highly recommend. Unless you plan on cooking a turkey, there is no need for a huge microwave! This one is perfect for my hectic lifestyal.

This last purchase is a replacement for an identical one that we purchased 2 years ago. ModelJE740DR1BB, serail #SZ224621A The interior lining on the previous one started cracking and the turntable support finally wore through the white plastic lining. This is the 3rd microwave of this size we have purchased, the 1st being GE and almost identical, it lasted for 5 yrs., the 2nd one (sn# noted above was definitely a disappointment) I have limited space and GE is the only mfg. that fits my space. I hope this one lasts longer. The operating & cooking was fine, but the inside white lining left a lot to be desired. I was afraid use it in its condition.

Comments about GE Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
We received our old GE microwave in 1994. It still works but when you shut the door it starts up by itself.It's 22 years old and the only one we could replace it with had to be a GE. We use it every day; mostly to reheat meals but what a quality product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I haven't had a microwave oven in about 20 years and am frustrated trying to find a manual with time schedules/operating procedures. So far I am very pleased with the basics
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is very compact and fits well where I wanted it, does a great job without taking up a bunch of counter space. Has many levels for all kinds of cooking.
Attractive small microwave with convenient feature
from San Francisco, CA, United States
I bought this 0.7 cubic ft microwave to replace an old Quasar microwave that sits on a custom shelf when I remodeled my kitchen 20 years ago. Used the new microwave for 2 weeks so far; very pleased with the one-touch express cook time feature. I almost thought the GE microwave is defective when I tried to set power level for melting butter. It turned out that the user manual on how to change the power level is incorrect. The correct way is to use time cook button first, enter the time, and then hit the power button to change to a low power level (like 1). Also, beware that the plug takes up 2.5" when plugged into an outlet. Because the new GE microwave sits on an 12" shelf, I am glad it is smaller than (width) than my old Quasar so I can move it to closer to one side of the shelf to have room to plug into the outlet that used to be behind the old Quasar. Finally, the turntable sits very solidly and does not shift after use. The one thing I do need to figure out is how to clean the finger print smudges on the stainless steel door.
I bought this same model 8 years ago. Had NO problems the entire time. Thought I'd try it again. Only difference seems to be smaller fonts on the front panel - a little harder for me to read than the old one.
Nice little microwave, all we needed!
from Tampa, FL, United States
We bought this microwave a couple of months ago because I was trying to get a little more counter space. We bought the kit that was suggested to hang the unit under the cabinet and it went up like a breeze--the instructions look a lot more complicated than it actually was. It takes a little getting used to the lower wattage, but we compensated for that in no time. This is the perfect microwave replacement in our kitchen and we love it.
Good value for the price.

I've had this new microwave for about 1 month. So far it has functioned as advertised. I like the fact that it is nice looking and very compact. I measured my dinner dishes before purchasing so the larger plates fit just fine. My only comment is that it took three weeks and several washings before the plastic smell in the inside began to dissipate. I would recommend for anyone who needs a microwave primarily for reheating food or beverages.

My only complaints are that the soft touch buttons feel a bit flimsy and you have to press the clear button each time if you want to set a time that has both minutes and seconds. Otherwise, the machine works well and doesn't take up much space.

Bought this item in April. Bought it because I need something small for my countertop. Perfect size. Works very well.
Small, but capable
from Darien, CT
I bought this microwave replacing a GE Advantium. I must say it does everything I used the Advantium for. Haven't regretted my choice and love having 2 wall ovens.
