Although it comes with step by step installation guide. Anyone who is little bit technical or has installed the microwave previously can install it within 10 minutes. Even if it's your first time you can still do it, without much hassle. Watch the below video to see how to unbox and install.

Look & Feel 

JVM3160RFSS is a medium size microwave oven comes in stainless steel black color with beautiful design. Looks great in the kitchen. Yes due to stainless steel if your hands are not clean it may get your finger marks. Metal shield window allows to view the food while cooking. Covinet cooking controls makes cooking easier. See this beauty in action i below video. Easy to clean due to its non sticky interior.


This over the range microwave, doesn't come with the sensor. Basically sensor, automatically close the oven if it detects the oven is overheated. It makes sure the food is not overheated. Turntable on/off function can help to cook the food evenly.

Door has a handle and I personally like it as more life as compared to buttons. But it's just a matter of choice, some people may prefer the button.

It comes with the touchpad instead of buttons or turning dial. Again it's a just a matter of personal choice. But I prefer the touchpad as in my experience turning dials are have shorter life span.

Display offers the detailed instructions to guide through the cooking process. Comes with built in cooking buttons for Popcorn, Beverage, Potato. These functions make it easier to cook.

2 exhaust fans removes the smoke and odor from the microwave.


GE JVM3160RFSS is the best for cooking quick meals, defrosting, popcorn and frozen food. Yes its not the top notch over the range microwave in the world. But in this price range it does a pretty awesome job. It comes with one warranty so you don't have to worry, if anything goes wrong. It was came out first in the September 2013 so its been in the market from long time.
