Two GE brand lines of countertop microwave ovens have the lowest maximum wattage of the company's offerings: the JEM3072 and the JES1072. Each type produces up to 700 watts of cooking power in a 0.7 cubic foot capacity.
Although nearly identical in features, as of 2015, the JES1072, available only in a stainless steel finish, retails for almost $50 less than the JEM3072, which is offered in either stainless, black or white finishes. The JEM3072 has an optional hanging kit that allows the microwave oven to be mounted under an upper cabinet, conveniently freeing up counter space. Additionally, this premium line offers Instant On controls, a GE innovation that allows for single-touch instant operation.
