Just OK

Ellie Jo Bee 5/12/2021

Certainly not the quality of the GE we were replacing that was 16 years old. When closing the door sounds like a tin can. Not solid at all. Gosh I hope it will last me at least 5 years. They just don't make them like they use too.

Great microwave

mbeve 5/4/2021

I am really happy with the GE Profile 1.1 cubic ft. countertop microwave I purchased a few weeks ago. I had the same GE Profile microwave for 14 years and it turned out to be a very reliable microwave. When I had to finally purchase a new one I looked at many brands and models but decided to go with GE Profile. It was a great decision. It is quiet (even more than my previous one) and so far looks to be a prudent purchase.

Best replacement for discontinued PEM31DM3BB

Profile2021 3/28/2021

If you want to replace your old built-in PEM31DMBB Profile oven, this countertop is as close you will get to the same dimensions, albeit about an inch taller. With all the same features and controls as the older built-in (that required a trim), this countertop should fit in the same built-in alcove as the old one. You may have to jury-rig your own trim to cover a larger space at the top...but there are many options to do this. Only complaint: the control panel is more difficult to read than the old Profile, which was very easy to read.

Okay basic microwave.

jeezbeez 3/23/2021

This was the only size that would fit the space. Sorry I didn't get the more expensive one with the stainless panels because the black really shows fingerprints, etc. The touch buttons require quite a hard press...too hard in my opinion. Inside space doesn't seem as big as previous GE Spacemaker because the handle of one cooking vessel I used all the time in the previous one is just a bit too long to fit in this one. Cooks fine but only so so in looks and inside size and button operation.

Poor upgrade PFM31DF2BB

Wireless Mike 3/8/2021

Our microwave oven was a replacement to an earlier model, same line, same size, same appearance. Was installed under a cabinet. We discovered only after this installation that the control buttons do not light up. Our previous GE unit included back-lit numbers and buttons, and now the new unit does not. We consider this a very poor choice, if only because we must turn on the kitchen ceiling light to read the numbers and buttons. Bad design in a newer mode.

SO DISAPPOINTED WITH GE

LWR136 2/25/2021

Have just purchased our 4th GE microwave of this 'spacesaver' size, and are so upset that the controls are not lit and are impossible to read without shining a light on them. Also as others have mentioned the door is extremely loud. Both of these issues are readily obvious......shame on GE! An apology solves nothing.

Xxxxxxcc 2/18/2021

A good sturdy microwave with ample room for a.large plate or casserole dish. The one feature that really is an inconvenience, is the fact the number dial is not lot up like the previous model. I never realized till now how many times I had used the microwave in a semi dark kitchen, and could always see the numbers...now I can't

Nice Microwave

janwar 2/2/2021

We needed a microwave that wouldn't stick out from the cabinet face. This one is perfect, looks good and works great. The only thing I don't like is how loud the door is when it's closed. It sounds as if it's going to break.

under size, powered, whelming...over priced

come on man 1/13/2021

We bought GE microwave 15 years ago for under counter "built in" location and it was great. This replacement is under sized, powered, whelming...and way over priced. the new vanity kit to install on front of cabinet cost nearly as much as the microwave itself and it is totally unnesseceray becuase I already have one from the original microwave....but the dimensions of the door open are just about an inch different on all top and both sides so we had to purchase new vanity. disappointing.

Does the Job

tapestries 1/13/2021

Like others have mentioned this model that replaces similar one I had with the exact same dimensions, has a panel very difficult to read. I have no understanding why companies do this. Features should improve, not become less user-friendly. Only because I don't have space for a bigger size did I get this model. Also, doesn't come in the chrome to match my other appliances. I settled for black.

I have an old kitchen with steel cabinets. I replaced an old, huge hood style microwave with this one. The size is absolutely perfect. It is not as powerful as my old unit. But it has not been an issue. I did put it over the cooktop. I have a ceiling vent fan.

Difficult Installation

KC Mom 2 12/23/2020

Seems to work just fine. The challenge with this microwave, and probably every other built-in microwave, is installing it into a tight space by hanging it from screws. Would have been great if the manufacturer would provide some form of template for placement of screw holes above the microwave cabinet.

This microwave was installed under a cabinet in my kitchen when I bought my house. I love the quality of the microwave and it works very well. I appreciate the directions on the inside for using the microwave. We uninstalled it from being attached so we could free up space in the kitchen. For being 800 watts, it heats up food quickly. I'm very satisfied with this model.

Keypad difficult to see

DCL54 12/2/2020

This is my 3rd spacesaver/profile microwave oven, in 20 years. 1st one purchased 2003, replaced 2012 with same model. I liked the features on #2 the best, it also appeared to be of better quality. #3 is tinny, no solidity to it, I don't think the latch will last long. The keypad is difficult to see, so we have to keep a flashlight by it. Not the quality I expected from GE.

Overall happy 123 12/2/2020

This is our second purchase of this model to replace a built in unit. The first unit developed an electrical problem. I did not explore a repair due to my fear of a possible house fire. This unit has adequate size and power for a home kitchen application. My wife "loves it." The controls are easy and simple. The glass plate included is durable. It is attractive and complements our other black colored appliances.

The keypad is very difficult to see because the numbers and letters are too small and they are not white or wide enough. This also makes it hard to press within the space especially if you have arthritis. Also, it takes too many unnecessary steps to program .

Perfect for small spaces

lisafr 11/20/2020

When I redid my kitchen, the contractor mismeasured the space where the built in microwave was supposed to go! This left me with just about a single choice of units that would fit- hence this one! I purchased the original 11 years ago and it just died and, not seeing any good reason to do otherwise, I replaced it with the exact same oven. I love the one touch features as well as the add 30 seconds feature. My largest plates don't turn because they are square but otherwise, the perfect microwave for us.

Works good and very quiet. When you open or close the door the latch system is loud and feels very cheaply made. I didn't know this until I got it home to use it. The labeling on the buttons are so small they are hard to see. Not impressed with the lack of quality. We'll see how long it lasts...
