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 purchase this microwave to replace the previous version that we had custom cabinetry built for during a kitchen remodel 3 years ago. The previous microwave broke within 3 years. This microwave works ok for general use. The keypad is hard to press. The previous keypad was softer, but maybe that was a problem and why it broke on the first one. The timer only had one sound when it ends and does not keep on ringing like the previous version. I tried using the beverage sensor, but the sensor takes minutes to "sense" before it starts to heat...I don't have 6 minutes to warm up a drink. In summary, it works fine, but I don't expect it to last more than 2-3 years.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Small microwave big power
from Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Downsizing from 1800 watt, I expected radical differences in duration of cook times but that has not been the case. I use it generally just for reheating and for cooking vegetables that "steam in bag". I did not want it over my range. It is cabinet-depth which made off-the-counter an option.
Quiet and good for it's small size
from Concord, CA, United States
I bought a couple months ago. Had to replace a part but works great after. Quiet and strong for its size. I would buy again
Great features and easy to use
from Metairie, LA, United States
I have been very pleased with my microwave. It offers several selections for cooking but is extremely easy to use, and its sleek look compliments the other kitchen appliances.

Used for a month no problems Wish the key pad was lighted as had to see key pad where it is installed

I am really liking this microwave! It has nice lines andcan do so many things. I love that it doesn't have a clock. My stove has a clock, and I also have clocks hung, so I'm glad it doesn't waste energy on that function. So easy to use. Streamline, doesn't take up much space. Excellent piece to have in your kitchen, and will go with any design.
Quieter than my old microwave oven!
from Saratoga, CA, United States
I bought this to replace the exact same GE unit. The new unit get A+ for being much more quiet, but a C for being a tad bit larger in all three dimensions so it took a little work to get it to fit into the same enclosure.
