2.2 Cu. Ft. Capacity - 1200 Watts (IEC-705 test procedure)

This review is from: GE Profile : JES2251SJ 2.2 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave with Child Lockout and Extra Large Capacity
Pros:
Large
Fast and Even Heating
Great Defrost
Not too loud

Cons:
Sensor reheat is only good for soups and other substance that it is okay to heat to boiling (don't trust it with Pizza, or other foods like that).

Bottom Line: This is an excellent large microwave for countertop use. The inverter defrost works almost perfectly every time, never cooking my food more than it should, but the reheat is a gimmick.

This is a large countertop microwave, at about 2.2 cubic foot. Coming from an over-the-range microwave this is a huge improvement in size. The microwave heats uniformly and fast (it is 1200 watts). The sensor reheat should only be used on foods it is safe to boil, otherwise it overcooks about everything else. It also works best when you lightly cover the food, as sometimes uncovered food triggers it to turn off too early. Lightly covered is critical, as the sensor works off water vapor temperature being released from the product. If the water vapor cant leave the container it could become superheated. Sensor cook should also only be used under supervision (you should be in the same room).

I have had the microwave for about 6 months now with no issue. It is no louder than other microwaves I have used, and the controls are intuitive and easy to use. You do not have to press a cook button or anything to start your timed cooking. My favorite feature is the inverter defrost. Remember you enter the weight in pounds, so for an 8 oz pack of bacon you would enter "5" and "start" for 1/2 of a pound. If you had a 1.5 pound package of meat, you would enter "15" and "start" for 1.5 pounds. The display shows the weight correctly. Not much else to say about the product, it is a microwave after all.

Update: To improve "sensor reheat" performance, use a lid over the food with a vent hole. I use a paper plate with a small hole (finger tip size) punched in it. This will make sure the reheat stays running long enough, but still gets some water vapor to judge the food temperature by so it doesn't over cook.

Update (6/26/2010): I have been using the microwave 2 years now. It has been no issue and still works perfectly. I use the sensor reheat almost all the time for soups and casseroles, and use the inverter defrost for my frozen goods. I also use the "popcorn" button to heat microwave popcorn bags. Everything has been working great!

Update (7/26/2011): Still going strong. I use the inverter regularly for defrost, or lowering the power level to cook something slower. It has worked well for me, and I think problems might be from shipping, quality control, or some other factor.
