Microwave runs very quietly and heats thoroughly .

9/17/2018

This microwave was given to us as a gift from our children to replace a similar model that we had bought when we were first married 37 years ago. Only recently had the original microwave begun to show its wear and was no longer very efficient so we had begun to look at new ones. We had such good luck with this countertop microwave that we were hoping that it was still being made. Our kitchen is not set up to have a built-in or over-the-stove microwave. With the exception of the button words being a little difficult to read in the evening with overhead lighting we have been very pleased. During normal daylight lighting however we have no difficulty reading those very same buttons. All other updates and changes have been found to be user friendly and technologically advanced.

Pros 1 it fits in the same space as the previous version of this microwave. Dimensions match perfectly 2 It works. 3 Good Price. Cons The commands on the command panel are not backlit. Makes it difficult to see and select. sometimes we hit timer instead of cook time or vice versa. The reheat options are completely a mystery. There is no explanation of the various options and the names of the options are not recognizable in most languages. We have downloaded and read the description in the user manual. Still a mystery.

Love this microwave

5/23/2018

This is the 2nd microwave that we bought in this model. We love the fact that we can turn off the turntable so we can cook with a rectangular or square pan and all the other extra features on it like 30 seconds etc. Our first one lasted 15 years and was still working great even though one of my kids put something metal in it and it ruined the inside of the top so we felt it was no longer safe to use.

Just the right size

3/9/2018

We upgraded our kitchen. One of the new cabinets was designed to hold a microwave. The cabinet is only slightly wider than a normal disk cabinet that hangs on the wall. The foot print of the GE unit is just right. The microwave also has features we didnt have in our old counter top unit. Very nice microwave.

under cabinet replaces older failing Space Saver

2/23/2018

Bought this to replace GE Spacemaker II installed in 1999. Old microwave was buggy and this one fit well enough to serve as a replacement under a cabinet. It works just fine but is a bit taller and deeper so built-in trim no longer fits.

2/3/2018

This little microwave fits perfectly under my cabinets which others dont. The food heats evenly defrosts well. Easy to clean turntable works well. Very happy with this purchase. If you use the food timer and run the microwave at the same time cancel will cancel both. You cannot see the timer display while the microwave is also running. A Bigger Issue: Display does not show the power level in this model.

I replaced my old micro that was at least 15 years old with the exact same model. Be aware that the dimensions are slightly different so I needed a new trim kit. My only complaint on the newer model is that the sound alert is very low and beeps only once. The older model beebed about every 30 seconds or so and much louder. I quick phone call to CS revealed that that this is how the new model was made.

I purchased two of these as replacements as both of my existing ones stopped working. I am rather disappointed in the new versions. They are less wattage and are made mostly of plastic and the buttons have been rearranged in an illogical order. I really liked my old ones. They were great. Thought I would replace them with the same model/type as I had.

Replacing the same under cabinet mounted microwave

1/12/2018

When I originally designed my kitchen I installed this under cabinet style GE spacesaver microwave in 2007. Something electrically went wrong with it an it did not work. I was glad that I was able to replace it with basically the same product. There were a few changes necessary in the mounting holes and hardware but it works fine and looks the same as before. I like this design because it is off the counter top not too big and did not have to be custom fit into my cabinets.

Replaced a GE Space Saver

1/1/2018

We needed a microwave to fit under kitchen cabinets in a small space. This is the only one I could find on the market today other than very small counter-top models which would fit.Turned out to be priced competitively with similarly powered and similarly featured microwaves and has a good warranty. This microwave does all the basics. It looks good and has the programmability necessary for convenience foods as well as performance for simple cooking duties. We use it primarily for re-heating. It does everything advertised well. No complaints. This unit replaced a 20-year-old Space Saver model from GE and we are hoping the replacement Profile Series lasts as long as the original The only problem I ran into was that this unit is not a one-for-one replacement with the original. It is a half-inch taller than that 20-year-old and so I had to do some custom cabinetry adjustments. Just as well I did it because now the ventilation is better.

12/31/2017

Purchased this product to replace a PEM31 that we used for over 6 years. The old one was fully operable but the ceiling was flaking paint badly. Hopefully that problem has been resolved in the new one. We like this microwave and its performance. Even the 800 watt power level is more to our liking. One of the overwhelming factors in purchasing the original and the replacement is the size particularly the depth which conserves counter or shelf space. The only negative factor on the new one is the lack of optical clarity in the control button labeling. GE and other manufacturers need to realize that all users do not have 16-year old eyes More contrast is needed in a black product like this. Other than that this is an excellent product.

12/17/2017

I love the microwave - especially the off/on feature of the turntable. It fits perfectly with the trim kit recommended in the shelf under the cabinet but the display panel has no lighting and difficult to read - the buttons are hard to push and the door is loud when you close. Recommend you print the instruction manual on line for future reference in operating.

Digital clock is brighter

10/8/2017

We purchased this model because it is the only one we have found that fits under our kitchen cabinet. The previous one lasted about 7 years. This one is not as good as for some reason they moved all of the buttons on the keypad. The door is more difficult to open and is quite a bit louder. For some reason they reduced the size of the turntable. Every time they update this model in their great wisdom they change location of the holes for mounting it under the cabinet. Wouldnt want to be consistent would we? My kitchen cabinet bottom looks like Swiss cheese. Like I said earlier the only reason we purchased this one is it is the only one that will fit under our kitchen cabinet.
