We bought this model to conserve our limited counter space. We easily installed it ourselves under a cabinet with the optional installation kit. It looks nice, is easily accessible, and, so far, has met all of our microwave cooking and reheating needs. The controls and cooking options seem too many and varied for our personal preference, though we are working though the learning curve. We noticed steam/water vapor emitting from the side vent and collecting on the wall when cooking a large sweet potato. While this appears to be normal, we hope it does not present a corrosion problem with long term use. This unit costs about $100 more than equivalent-power counter top models. Clearly, some of that additional cost results from beefing up the frame to hang from a cabinet, but the [$] premium seems a little high. This microwave oven does meet our space and cooking needs, and we are happy and satisfied with our purchase. Oh yes, the Abt ordering, packing, and shipping process was easy, speedy, and top notch!

I bought this Spacemaker II to replace the same model I have been using since 1991. I figured it was getting old, even though it still worked perfectly. The big difference between the old and new models is that they've replaced the glass plate with a turntable. They've also changed the arrangement of the keypads and increased the wattage from 650 to 800 and the interior from .8 cu. ft. to 1.

The old model was far superior to the new. All of the new keypad buttons look alike, with the start button looking like any other. It cooks frozen food, boils water, and warms leftovers just fine as long as the turntable is on. If the turntable is off, the energy is concentrated in one place and burns the food. The standard popcorn bag is too long to fit on the turntable; the bag stops because the corners hit the door. If you try to pop with the turntable off, the corn burns without popping. I finally solved that problem by cutting off the corners from the bag first.

I sent an e-mail to GE asking if the unit needed service because of the above issues. They replied for me to run a test heating 1 qt. of water in a 2-qt bowl for 2 1/2 minutes. The temperature increased by 42 degrees (a little over their standard of 28-40). According to GE, the unit is working as expected and does not require service. Their only suggestion was to try a different brand of popcorn.

I loved my old unit, and am disappointed in this new model.

    Comments about GE Profile Spacemaker II White Microwave Oven:

    This is the 2n GE microwave I've bought. Got at least 10 years from the first. This is less powerful but works just as well if not better. Only criticism I have is that it does not boil water. Minor point.

        I love this GE Profile Microwave particularly for reheating. I have the same microwave in white. I have switched to stainless steel appliances so I ordered from Abt the same microwave in stainless. It is the perfect size above my stove and matches perfectly! Great customer service from Abt and we could not believe we received the microwave in only one day! What service!!!! Thanks, Abt!

        ABT is great, but this product is not the best. The only reson I bought it is because it fit the opening I had to replace the last GE Spacemaker. Otherwise I would have tried any other product.

          Needed to replace a 10 year old unit in a house we just moved into - this new model fit perfectly into the cabinet mount that was already installed. It's great to see that a product can evolve while maintaining an eye to the past (so we didn't have to rework our cabinets)

          This is the only microwave on the market this size. We had to replace the one we had because the paint was chipping off the interior ceiling. we hope we don't have the same issue with this one, as this is the only one available for our built in cabinets

          This was ordered to replace te same model that lasted almost 12 years, so expectations were high. I like the new exterior design and the controls were very familiar if not slightly smaller and a little harder to read when compared to the older model. The addition of a turntable make the heating much more even and with the boost in power items heat with less time. So far Iam very pleased with my purchase.

            Not so great -- the latch you depress to open the door needs to be pressed several times before the door opens. Pretty frustrating.

            Otherwise, this is our second GE Spacemaker microwave. This version seems to be built with thinner, lighter materials. Hope it lasts as long.

            That door is a problem, though.
