We have had our microwave oven for over a decade now, and it still works fine. I have always trusted this brand GE, and for a microwave that's constantly used here (a family of five people), we're happy with it. Although, after all these years of normal and beyond normal use, I can't believe it's still working. It went through a lot, even to a point of burning popcorn, paper and even exploded due some carelessness of others... but, it still works until now. By now, it has a lot of scratches, wear and tears in the bottom of the plate, but the walls the ceiling, and outer part overall are still free of scratches, and still easy to clean with a damp, mildly soapy rag. Pretty soon, somebody will be replacing it, maybe this Christmas, but we'll truly miss this GE microwave and its decade of untiring service. Performance It does exactly what it says it will do. Settings/Features It has all the features and settings for normal and everyday use. Ease of Cleaning I use a slightly damp rag with a little dish washing soap, and the dirt comes off easily on the outside as well as the inside. the glass plate and rotating plastic can be soaked in soapy water and the dirt just comes off. Easy to clean. Ease of Use The instructions are easy to understand and once you get the hang of it, it's easy to use. Durability Like I said before, even beyond normal use, its durability lasts. Design Nothing fancy, but the way it's designed makes it easy to clean inside and out.
