We were in a rush to purchase a new microwave for a kitchen remodel and am glad we picked this GE. It was not too expensive and it looks very classy. It heats well and has a rotating glass plate that turns the food. My favorite feature is the quick start which can be set by pressing the "1" for 1 minute, "2" for 2 minutes, etc. And it has a 30 second button which I also use quite often. There are settings for certain foods, such as popcorn and potatoes. I don't use them, but its nice to have the option. There is also an optional metal rack that can be used if you need to cook more than 1 item at a time. I love this feature for heating up several leftovers at once for a quick dinner. Ease of Cleaning I love the look of the stainless steel, however it can be hard to keep clean. It does show every fingerprint.
