We remodeled our kitchen in '06-07 and the appliances included a GE Profile mid size microwave for cabinet mount installation. Unfortunately it died after 10 years - perhaps this is the longevity of currently manufactured appliances? Anyway, replacement options for cabinet installation were extremely limited so I bought the latest model of the old unit. EXTREMELY unfortunately, due to my dead unit being 10 years old I ALSO had to purchase the NEWER TRIM KIT (the old trim would not fit the new unit, esp. in terms of the base pan, and I much prefer the appearance of the older kit). The unit functions fine, and seems to have more power than the old one. Control pad layout and door opening mechanism are a bit different but are easy enough to adjust to, given we've been programmed to the old unit for ten years. It functions very well and is used multiple times daily. I have no complaints but only questions.... I have some kitchen appliances (e.g.- a two-station milkshake mixer inherited from my grandmother, likely manufactured in the late '40's) that still work just fine. Yet major appliances like refrigerators, microwaves, clothes washing machines, etc., take a dump within 10 years of service. I'm always happy with how my appliances function when new. I'll be even happier when they're functioning as new 10 years into service.

I bought this microwave to replace the predecessor of this model that I had for 15 years. As soon as the deliveryman took it out of the box, I was immediately struck by the fact that it felt much less solid than my previous model. Many of the materials feel quite flimsy, although I will acknowledge that the overall look of the microwave is quite attractive. I bought this specific model because it is the only one that fits in the cabinet niche. As others have mentioned, it is very hard to read the display as the print is very light gray and does not offer enough contrast with the background. The timer buzzes once when time is up and if you are not in the room when it goes off, you will not realize that it has gone off. The previous microwave timer would beep continuously until you turned it off and was a much better system. Also, the button that you push to open the door is stainless steel, which is attractive, yet obviously will retain fingerprints. It's difficult to clean because it pushes in when you try to wipe it. The microwave seems to reheat/defrost/cook adequately for my purposes, although it does seem to be a little inconsistent.

Comments about GE Profile Series 1.1 Cu. Ft. Slate Countertop Microwave Oven:
I have only been using it for a day. It was installed where an old microwave was removed. It fit nicely in the cut-out where the old one was and it looks very nice. I find some of the buttons less convenient than other microwaves and it has a small turntable but a large cavity. So even though it is 1.1 cu ft, you are limited by the small size of the turntable and therefore holds a smaller amount than a similar sized microwave. This design was necessary in order to fit into the cutout but I would have preferred a smaller width...I was limited by the depth.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect fit on standard shelving!
from Temple Hills, MD, United States
LOVE LOVE LOVE. Especially the new turntable feature that allows me to turn it off. And the one button timer settings. TOP OF THE LINE for sure!
from Wilmington, DE
This microwave is sleek and stylish! It also has great features and is easy to understand.
I purchased this microwave about 6 weeks ago, replacing a GE spacemaker that failed after 8 years. This spacemaker is far more cheaply made. It is a disappointment, and little more than a distant relative of its predecessor.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Easy to use; works well
from SF Bay Area
Finding a microwave with these dimensions was not easy. If fits perfectly in the space allotted. The programming is sensible and user friendly. The rotating dish works well. The display is large and east to read. Minor downsides: is that if feels tinny, and the prominent logo at the center bottom is unsightly.
Quiet and Easy to install!

Bought this to replace my discontinued 1.1 cubic foot microwave (9 years old).
It's extremely quiet
from Burtonsville md
It's quiet and seems to work well. I had a problem with the door latch breaking after only 1.5 years on a previous oven, but they appear to have changed the mechanism, so I am hopeful that this one will last longer.

I bought this microwave last January as a replacement for an earlier version of this same GE model that I purchased when I renovated my kitchen in 2001. You've made some changes to the appearance that make the look less styliish, but I have been very disappointed in this new product"s performance. It is inconsistent in cooking--i.e. the potato feature never fully cooks potatoes in one pass, sometimes oatmeal is undercooked and sometimes it overflows using the prescribed cooking time. Now the plastic covering on the control panel is wearing out on several of the numbers. This is the last GE microwave I will ever buy.
