It does not come with the charcoal filter. For the price, you think they would include it. Once you do buy it (for about [$]!), it actually does not fit this model at all. Seems like GE got lazy and didnt want to redesign a new filter for this system. You have to constructively wedge it up in the vent opening for it to be of any use (after removing the silver frame from around it). -1 star for this known issue by GE. Other than that, operation is fine. Since there is no digital number pad, you cannot enter in weird time values like 13 or 24secs. The dial only allows increments of 5secs.

I purchased this model in August, 2011 and withing weeks the handle (which is plastic painted to look like stainlesss steel) started delaminating as if the heat from the range below was causing it to melt. The service people came out and replaced the handle. After another 6 weeks or so the same thing has started to happen again. I called customer service and the rep I spoke with said that the tech that changed the original handle must have tightened the screws too much causing the paint on the handle to peel. That doesn't make sense to me. I'm not happy and would definetly NOT recommend this microwave hood to anyone.

Good looks, but it is not "All That"

About Me Casual Cook
Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Black Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
Unsatisfied that you cannot increase the heating time in single digits. It only increases in 15 second intervals. EVERYTHING takes much more time to heat up compared to my old 1100 watt microwave. I have to increase cooking times on all store purchased items with microwave instructions.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

display panel too dark - hard to read
from Skokie, IL
Display panel should be backlit or a lighter color background with dark lettering. Very hard to read. Otherwise, a good product.

My new GE Profile convection microwave is fantastic! It preforms well and offers great versatility. It is user friendly and it's design/appearance is so contemporary! The Abt salesman and installers were so professional. This appliance purchase was a great addition to my kitchen.
After using it for 14 months I notice a bubbles appear on the handle. When I tried to clean it the stainless came off which really look awful. So I called ABT repair department and told me it will cost me $63 just for the parts. So I think the handle on this microwave can not handle heat from the stove.And as I read reviews online some have to replace the handle ever 6 months. Which I think is so ridiculous since this is not a cheap microwave
Happy with built-in Microwave
No number buttons leave all time programming to the dial which does 15 second increments while setting and 5 second modifications while running. You get used to setting 15, start, turn dial to make it the 20 seconds you really wanted. Unforgivable is that you have to press "Time Cook" before turning the dial puts time up (and has no function if you don't press Time Cook first). With a software update that put time up at first touch of a dial this would be a truly great product. Abt installed it in place of my previous GE profile unit (from 1996) and it went in quickly and easily.
We are very happy with the microwave ove
