2. Smart Cooking Settings
Smart cooking settings are what we always look out for in any ovens. GE profile microwave 2.1 cubic feet oven has a Chef Connect feature. It would help you connect this device through Bluetooth technology, which will sync your unit’s vent fan, clock, and cooktop lights! This unit allows you with My Cycle to set a custom cook time setting, through which you can cook your food with just one touch.
There are two cook time options that you can choose from. With cook time ‘I,’ you can cook in it for 15 seconds to 99 minutes. And with the cook time II, you can change power levels automatically while cooking. To defrost, you can choose from Weight Defrost and Time Defrost. With Weight Defrost, you can evenly defrost meat, fish, and poultry products, and this machine automatically sets the time and power levels to it. And with Time Defrost, you can defrost for a selected amount of time.
3. Sensor Features
This 400 cfm over the range microwave oven comes with Humidity Sensors that detect if there is an increase in our dish’s humidity while cooking. And its smart functionality adjusts the cooking time automatically depending on the type and quantity of food. These sensor features don’t operate when this oven is too hot; instead, it shows “OVEN TOO HOT FOR SENSOR COOKING—USING ALTERNATE METHOD” in its display. When this happens, this oven automatically changes to cool by time, or when the oven cools down, these sensor features start to function.
To avail of this feature without any problem, make sure to use proper containers with covers. This feature makes sure to protect your unit from any damage and ensures a healthy unit for an extended period.
4. Multiple Power Level
An ingenious feature of GE microwave over the range oven is its multi-power level. It makes your cooking a versatile and flexible experience. These power levels determine the process of cooking and how fast it will cook. At power level 10, which is the maximum level, our food item that is kept in it will be cooked pretty quickly.
Some kinds of food items taste better when stirred and cooked at a medium or slow pace. For that purpose, one can adjust the power level accordingly like High 10, Med-High 7, Medium 5, Low 2 or 3, and Warm 1 depending on the food they are preparing. It is easy to choose any power level just by turning the dial clockwise to increase the level or counterclockwise to decrease the power level while cooking or before starting to cook.
5. Vent Filters
The main reason behind this oven becoming the best over the range microwave for sale is its venting system. This oven comes with a vent fan that has two metal reusable vent filters. Its reusable Vent Filters make sure to trap the grease that gets released from our food while cooking and make sure to protect this unit from excess cooking heat.
These vent filters must be cleaned once a month to keep this unit running safely and effectively. It has charcoal filters that remove excess odor and smoke from all the cooking. These charcoal filters can be replaced when required, which is generally after 6 to 12 months depending on our usage, and it is very easy to install new filters. This microwave oven’s charcoal filters come with an indicator light that alerts you timely whenever they need to be changed.

What We Don’t Like About GE 2.1 cu.ft. Microwave Oven?

So, if one would think to have something late at night, you cannot operate this unit without lighting your kitchen’s lights. This can be a great disadvantage.
A Bit Pricey
