Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great oven ! I just purchased this microwave to replace an identical GE sensor I purchased in 2013. worked perfectly for 14 years. I will stay with lasting products like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very user friendly Our 35 year old "stone age microwave" finally quit working, and we needed a new one. After extensive research, we went with this one. We were concerned about figuring out how to use a new one, as our old one was very simple to use. You turned the timer to desired amount, and pushed the start button. We are pleasantly surprised at how easy this GE is to use. And we really like the "sensor" feature. We tested it with a potato. Put it in the oven, push "potato", and it cooks it until done, no guessing how long to set timer. Too many other features we like to mention here.We are very happy with our purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good, reliable microwave My old microwave was almost 15 years old. It was a Kenmore. I first bought another Kenmore but it wouldn't turn when I put a bowl with water and chicken in it. I then found that GE tests each of their microwaves to make sure that they successfully rotate 15 pounds. I could not find any others that do this. This GE microwave easily rotates my chicken and water. My only issue is that for about 5 seconds, when it first starts, it makes a loud vibrating noise. I cooked potatoes in it and was happy to find that they cooked better than in my old one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Microwave Oven! I have had this countertop microwave for 6 months now & LOVE it!! I especially use the "Beverage" button to reheat coffee & find it very handy, multiple times each day. I like the "Reheat" button for single plate servings of leftovers. I use the "Vegetable" cbutton regularly as well as the Potato cycle. I often use "Add 30 Sec" for a dish that needs just a smidgen more heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, Tidy, Easy to Use After much research, we purchased this microwave oven. The panel options are easy to understand (and for those of us over a certain age) easy to read. We often use the warm-up feature. It's very simple to simply hit the '1' key to heat food for a minute. We love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cooks quickly I am enjoying my new microwave. It's bigger and faster than my old one. But I don't care for the stainless steel cover and the finger messes. I wish it had come with a more thorough instruction manual. I still can't figure out how to use all the buttons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable, but some issues What I do like is that this oven is fairly powerful and reheats food quickly. I wish it were not quite so noisy, and I'm not pleased with the fact that it keeps running after the time is up, but I've been adjusting to it rather well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use This was a replacement for an earlier GE model that I had. I liked the old one better, although the new one has more convenient preset controls for various types of food. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

how long is the power cord and where is it located?

Asked by: Carter
Hello Carter - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. Newer countertop microwaves (with turntables) have approximately a 39" power cord. It is located on the top right side of the case in the rear, behind the control panel. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!
