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:
After spending 3x what I would normally spend on your average microwave for the slim design, it broke down after a year. Very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Under-Cabinet Microwave
from York, ME, United States
We were pleased to find this model to replace an old microwave that finally died. The spot under the cabinet was smaller than the standard microwaves available, and this model did the trick AND looked great, too. We love the GE feature that allows for quick programming by simply hitting the number - and the oven will then operate for that number of minutes. Simple, easy and great looking microwave.

This came with my house and I like that it fits in the cabinets inmy island. It heats everything and cooks popcorn completely.
from Gilroy, CA, United States
Bought this to replace a similar GE model that suffered from interior surface peeling off. The keypad is a bit difficult to read due to marginal contrast between the keypad lettering and the keypad background. Kind of a beige lettering over dark brown background. White lettering would be better. Otherwise, easy to operate, cooks fairly evenly.

My old microwave had a broken start button for years, but it still worked. Finally replaced with this gem! Wow was I surprised at how hot things got in 1 minute. Very happy with my new microwave!
