I got this to replace a 20-year-old GE microwave of about the same size. The space I have is just under 24" wide, and I was concerned this wouldn't fit, but it just makes it, and the door opens fine. The LED display is very clear and bright, and I got it in white which I think makes the buttons easier to read. I'm particularly happy with the fact that the turntable can be turned off so that I can use wider pans sometimes. I also really like the Express Cook featue, where you can just hit any number from 1 to 6 and it starts cooking immediately on High for the specificied number of minutes.

Things I'm not so crazy about: when using the kitchen timer, it only dings once, which means I have to listen mroe carefully than with the old one, which made four beeps. As I saw in some other reviews, it doesn't feel quite as solid as my old one - I wouldn't go so far as to call it flimsy, but it seems a bit "tiinny." You have to press quite hard on the button to open the door, and the machine sometimes moves back slightly from the pressure applied. Not a big deal, but not as good as the old one. Biggest problem was that the power cord is shorter than the old one, and it comes out of the far right-hand side of the back of the oven. This meant that I was short about 8" from reaching the outlet that the old one reached easily, so I had to find a short heavy-duty extension cord for it.

The Pros far outweigh the Cons for me, and I would recommend this microwave, especially if you need it to fit in a tight space.

This is the one and only option or upper cabinet depth microwaves so we had to resolve to be okay with it regardless of it's flaws. It's small, but big enough for reheating leftovers and building it into the cabinets allows for leaving counter space free. There was a small dent on the lower part of the door of our appliance right out of the box, ABT was great about exchanging it but the replacement has a series of small ripples in the stainless steel in the same location so I'm assuming it's a manufacturing issue. We bought a GE range at the same time and there seems to be a number of quality control problems with that as well so we'd think twice about choosing GE for any future purchases. If you're planning a kitchen remodel, I'd recommend a lower cabinet built-in microwave so you have more choices.

Nice fitting with Under Cabinet Mount Option

By 

from CHICAGO, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about GE Profile Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

This is one of the few microwaves that offers the optional kits to simply use a four bolt mounting kit to mount under a cabinet. It drills four holes into cabinet above to mount rather than against the back wall. If you're replacing a microwave with that particular mount type then this is one of few choices.

Service and delivery comments:

Prompt courteous delivery. Optional installation fee $99.00. They were a bit rushed and manic to leave, but that's typical of over-scheduled installers.

      Best microwave ever

      By 

      from Tucson, AZ, United States

      We bought a home in 2014 and the prior owners left their countertop GE Profile Series microwave for us. I loved that microwave, it was 8 years old, and it stopped heating 2 weeks ago. I bought another GE Profile Series microwave just like it, and I found that there has to be something setting on the glass tray for the microwave to work. That's an improvement, because I now don't accidentally start the microwave when I've forgotten to put something in it to defrost or heat.

      Compact, basic, reliable

      By 

      from Queens, NY, United States

      We purchased this GE Profile Series PEM31SFSS microwave to replace a similar model. The unit fits a shallow shelf so it doesn't consume precious space on the kitchen counter. Its basic operations and reliability make it useful for reheating leftovers and preparing frozen foods.

      Strong Performer

      By 

      from Ringoes NJ

      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.

      Very happy with my new GE Profile Microwave!

      By 

      from Hayward, CA, United States

      I replaced my 18 year old GE Profile microwave with this stainless steel model (the old one still worked fine but was looking old!) and this one is even better because it is very quiet--hardly know it is on! Features are very easy to use; not confusing at all.

      Small outside but fits big trays

      By 

      from Palo Alto, CA

      I bought my first GE microwave for my new remodeled kitchen almost 15 years ago. I have to say that the microwave was the first appliance to go. The replacement is not as comfortable as the first that could easily fit big trays, it did not turn so there was no problem with the size of the tray. I had to buy this model to fit in the hole for the microwave. It's not the best in quality but it fitted in my built in space.

      Comments about GE Profile Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

      Bought a new micro from another manufacturer but it was horribly loud and had a very tin-like sound.
      However, I visited my neighbor who owns a GE Profile and what a difference: quiet in every way. I think all my appliances will be GE in the future. Compliments your R and D as I'm most pleased with my GE profile!!!
