The GE 1100 Watts Microwave Oven is a good basic microwave. It heats and cooks food evenly, consistently and fast. It has a removable turntable for easier cleaning. The GE microwave has programmed buttons for popcorn, baked potatoes, frozen foods, defrost, etc which is a great time saving feature. It also features a clock and a timer, which is nice. The front of the microwave has a chrome strip on the top and bottom, while the top and side are black. The outside of the microwave is easy to wipe clean. I owned this microwave for several years and was quite pleased with its performance. However, it quit functioning (after about 8 years) and I had to replace it.
