Re: Amazon basic microwave


Well if the GE app is accessible and stay that way if it is and if we as blind people was able to scan the bar code with this app it would be a great feature.

It is a bigger microwave so this might be a plus.

Also setting up the microwave in the GE app is it accessible?

It does sounds nice.

Do you have this one?

If so would you consider a podcast on it?

Hi Matt,

There is also another microwave that is WI-FI and Alexa enabled.  Here is a bit more about it.


NEWS – GE’s 0.9 Cu. Ft. Capacity Smart Countertop Microwave Oven with Scan-To-Cook Technology (JES1097SMSS) adds Alexa voice control to your microwave.  The microwave connects to your home WiFi, so you can control it with voice commands through your Alexa device. 

The 0.9 ft³ oven has 900W of cooking power.  It has a variety of pre-set controls for defrosting food, reheating a dinner plate, popping corn, baking potatoes, and more.  Or you can use Alexa voice commands to set time and power levels, add cooking time, stop the microwave, and other commands.  And using the GE app, you can scan the bar code on a food package, and the GE Smart Countertop Microwave automatically adjusts power levels, cook times, and more, according to package instructions.

The interior has an LED light and a glass turntable.  The exterior measures 19″ wide x 11 ½” tall x 14 ½” deep, and the interior measures 13.7″ wide x 8.7″ tall x 12.4″ deep.  It has a gray body and a stainless steel door.

The MSRP is $139.00.  Check the GE website to learn more about the 0.9 Cu. Ft. Capacity Smart Countertop Microwave Oven with Scan-To-Cook Technology and to find local retailers.  Amazon also sells this microwave for $125.99.


So, my question is, which one is the best?

Hi, any of you tried out or will try out the new Amazon basic microwave that uses Alexa to control the microwave?

It even has a Alexa button on the microwave.

I think you can control it by your echo or by the Alexa button or the app.

This might help with getting an accessible microwave .

It is small but would be just fine for heating things up in.
