 WES1130DMBB Microwave Ratings
Price Per
Cu. Ft.
  The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) per cubic foot of microwave area is $95. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 11% of new microwaves.
Premium Features  Considering only those functions and capabilities that really make a difference, this microwave has less premium features than average and ranks in the bottom 1% of new microwave designs.
Power  This GE microwave oven can generate up to 1100 watts of cooking energy. This is about average power with a standard level of heating watts.
Magnetron Warranty  The magnetron warranty is good for 1 year. Compared to other manufacturers, this microwave has a magnetron limited warranty with shorter than average duration.
User Ratings  Rated 2.5 of 5 stars by 78 users from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and others. Compared to other user reviews of new microwaves, this appliance is rated lower than average.
Bake / Roast  Standard microwave without convection heating. You can't brown, bake, or roast dishes and meats like a regular oven.
Grill / Broil  Standard microwave without a grilling or broiling element. You can't grill or broil meats such as steaks, hamburgers, or chicken wings.
Staged Cooking  Cannot be be programmed with multiple power levels and cooking durations. Without this convenient feature you have to be there to monitor and change the cooking process for more complicated dishes with varying requirements.
Sensor Cooking  Does not use sensors to monitor humidity levels and determine when some common foods are done cooking. Power levels and cooking times must be pre-selected.
Even Cooking  Does not use special technology to help ensure that dishes are cooked evenly. Most standard microwaves do an adequate job, especially at higher power settings. Moving dishes or stirring periodically is helpful.
Keep Warm  Does not include an automatic setting to keep foods warm after they've finished cooking. You have to manually select low power settings for brief periods of time on a periodic basis.
Non-Stick Interior  Does not have a special non-stick interior that makes clean-up easier. Splattered foods or drinks take a little more effort to wipe off, especially if you let them dry and harden for a period of time.
Turntable  Turntable is not large enough to rotate a standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish. If you just primarily heat-up food on a plate or small casserole dish, then this smaller size turntable should be adequate.
Stainless Steel  The exterior is not made of stainless steel. While stainless is popular in kitchen appliances, black and white are elegant, timeless colors.
Size  1.1 cu. ft. microwave with average to below average capacity. This may be adequate for singles and couples, but you should also consider your requirement for parties if you entertain often.
