It cooks very well and evenly.
Amazon Customer
Easy to operate and if you really know how to use a microwave, you could actually manage without an oven in the kitchen... and I am a "traditional" cook.

It cooks frozen foods and vegtables perfectly.

The difference between this unit and Panasonic's NN-SD997S is that this unit has a Stainless Steel front / door, while the 997 also has a full stainless wrap top & sides (according to Panasonic's website).

This microwave has been serving us for a bit more than half a year. It replaced a very dependable Sharp model that finally bit the dust after 10+ years of service.

My wife's first directive when I began researching new microwaves was "No Knobs!" -- you see, she knew I'd pick something geeky like that, and she's had a terrible experience with knobbed ovens at work. Mainly, they're extremely slow and fickle to set.

But the inverter technology caught my eye. We've got a baby in the house and I want to heat his small portions precisely. We thaw a lot of frozen foods, and you know how messed up thawing food in a traditional microwave can be when care isn't used -- might end up with partially cooked exterior and a chunk of ice in the middle!

So... since Panasonic uses the knob my wife hates, I looked into GE's inverter ovens. Uh-uh, terrible reviews.

I hemmed and hawed and took a shot, brought home this oven. My wife saw that the knob increased in 1 and then 5 second increments for low cook times, then increased to larger increments as the total cook time got longer. And let's face it -- once we're over two minutes we're cooking in whole minute increments anyway, so at that point the knob isn't even a factor; we set the time with the "minute plus" button.

The inverter works exactly as advertised, delivering an even, constant output.

There's loads of interior space. Good sized turntable. This microwave is easy to use and powerful. The popcorn cycle was very good. It bakes potatoes and apples very well. The automatic sensor has been a great help in getting dinner on the table. The reheat button does the trick for those who arrive home late for dinner. It cooks frozen foods and vegtables perfectly. I'd buy it again!

This model has buttons that are easy to find and operate in low-light conditions - like late night snacking. I hated our old Kenmore with those touchpad flat panals where I had to fumble all over the face with my fingers before hitting the right spots to get the thing going. Another plus is the rotary knob that makes fast work of dialing-in the right cooking time. These two features are a winning combination for me, plus the rotating plate is larger than any other I've seen.

I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that someone else had used this microwave before Amazon sold it to me. The flaps of the box were badly torn and dog-eared. It had been taped and re-taped a few times. Half of the packing materials were missing. The glass plate and plastic roller unit were just tossed inside the oven and left to bounce around. The power cord was unraveled and laying on top and the twist-tie used to secure it was laying at the bottom. Not very nice of you to send it like this, Amazon. I sent off an email complaint to them about it but never heard back. At least I didn't see any food splattered around inside or I would have sent it back for sure. I kept it because it works fine and I didn't see any damage. I re-checked Amazon's website and it does say this item is new, so if you buy it from them, be forewarned. I also thought the price couldn't be beat..... I was wrong. I later visited Fry's Electronics and see they stock this exact model in their store for $10 less than the $199 I paid.

I was amazed that the new microwave knocks out my laptop's wifi connection every time. I keep my laptop in the kitchen and its about 15 feet away from the microwave. Web articles indicate that indeed it does generate an RF signal that interferes with the wifi. I tried changing the router to Channel 1 but that didn't help.

Also my wife was disappointed that her popcorn takes a long time and comes out small. She now goes to the garage to use our old 1100 watt (non-inverter) machine.
