GE JVM7195SKSS Review, 2021 (Product Features)
1. Weight and Time Defrost
Sometimes, you may get confused while trying to decide the ideal temperature and time for defrosting your food item. But not with this GE over the range microwave stainless steel. This microwave has gone one step ahead in smartness by including sensor cooking, which automatically sets the optimal time and power level.
With weight and time defrost, you just have to set the weight of your food item, and this over-the-range microwave will itself set the required time and power needed to defrost it. This feature is especially helpful for someone who has no prior experience in using a microwave.
2. Melt Feature
Usually, it is recommended to use a microwave for melting items like butter, caramel, etc., rather than a stove. But melting these items is not as easy as it seems. It can be a tricky and messy job consuming your precious time. And when it comes to chocolate, it gets harder. You need to have the right temperature to melt chocolate – neither too hot nor too cold.
GE JVM7195SKSS 1000w microwave comes with a melt feature for quickly melting food items. This feature allows your food item, be it chocolate or marshmallow, to melt nicely and adequately without any difficulties. Now, you can melt your chocolate entirely and use it however you want with creating a mess and fuss in your kitchen.
