Purchased this unit after my existing GE Profile failed. In the old unit it was the simple little moisture sensor for checking popcorn and other sensing duties that was defective. It would have cost $103 to replace!!! That's if you could find it, along with the special $7 fuse that blew because if it's failure. Talk about planned obsolescence! GE obviously doesn't want these to be repaired. That's why I chose this particular unit. It does almost everything the other one does, costs $15 less than the exact replacement would have cost, and DOES NOT have the moisture sensor, which I didn't use anyway. It performs slightly better than the old one regarding cooking time, and is much quieter. It also has a couple of nice new features like an instant 30 second add and separate time defrost buttons. Together with the fact that it used the same under counter installation kit, it's exactly what I needed!

I bought this unit to replace / duplicate a 20 year old unit that was mounted under one of my kitchen cabinets which has a restricted space it had to fit into. The new unit fit ok into the old space BUT unlike the old unit, the new unit has a bare metal (galvaized)bottom plate with factory stamped bulges in it for legs and mechanical clearance purposes. Since i have this unit up-under my cabinet, this bare metal(bottom)plate with all of it's bulges pertrudes down BELOW the site line of the nice black front door frame and stands out like a sore thumb!!It's so bad, i am now looking to improvise a "black skirt" gismo (that should have accompanied the "under cabinet kit")to hang under the bottom front area in order to mask these ugly / pertuding bulges that obviously would not be visible if the unit were setting on the counter top in lieu of up under the cabinet.

Great value and Preformance
I purchased this appliance last month and installed it a week ago, and so far it has been a welcome appliance to our just remodeled kitchen. It has worked out very wells far.
Amazed by the large size
from Cypress, TX
The back of the unit is round and allows for a larger than normal vessel. I love it!
Good value for the price
from GR, MI
Simple counter top or in my case under cabinet microwave. Reasonable unit for the price
THE PERFECT BUILT-IN SIZE
from Bishop, CA 93514, USA
My current Spacemaker II of 15 years finally died leaving an empty space of specific dimensions in my kitchen cabinet . I was delighted to find that this microwave was still being made with the same dimensions as my original so it was a snap to replace it . Thank-you GE for continuing to make a great product.

This GE microwave was chosen to replace my previous GE Spacemaker which lasted over 20 years and I loved. What I like most about the JeM25DMBB is that the rotating tray can be stopped and it will accommodate an 11x13 pan ... just like my previous GE Spacemaker that was perfect. The only issue I have with the JEM25DMBB is that it burns bacon unless it's on the turn table.
Perfect - would buy again.

After 2 months works OK but emits smell
from St Louis MO
About Me Casual Cook
GOOD: Under-cabinet installation extremely easy. DON'T BUY INSTALLATION KIT! - instead just buy 4 screws and drill 4 holes with template sheet already included in the box.GOOD: Touch panel much easier to use than earlier GE models. Seldom need anything but simple 1-touch control.BAD: Emits a burnt electrical component smell from vent on left side. Would have sent it back for exchange but unwilling to pay for shipping and it still works fine.Overall: Would buy again.
Product is good for its price
from Freehold, NJ
I was a little disappointed with the actual depth of the microwave as it indicated 12.3in. but there was a white piece that stuck out an inch that really made the microwaves depth at 13in. Nice looking and width is nice for wider plates. I placed it in on a built in shelf in the kitchen
This is a replacement for an old Spacemaker that died. Our only complaints have to do with the physical differences. The brackets from the old one do not work with the new one necessitating a complete new hanging installation. The bottom of the new one is all metal vs non slip feet on the old one. A countertop or shelf installation requires some material added to keep it from slipping. The last difference was the turntable, which is a positive change. From an operational standpoint, it's a great little microwave when space is an issue.
